Fitness for Marriage Test Law Should
Include Women as Well as Men
By ROSE ROTHENBERG, Assent District Attorney
Coincident with the action of the legislature of Wyoming passing a
bill making it mandatory for every male resident of the state about to be
married to obtain a certificate from a reputable physician certifying that
he is physically fit and free from disease, plans are being made to present
a similar bill to the next session of the legislature in New York state.
But the proposed laws will go further. Women as well as men will be
required to undergo the eugenic examiaation and present certificates of
physical fitness for marriage. There is just as much reason for requiring
one of my own sex to submit to a fitness for marriage test as there is for
the man. Men are not always the offenders, as my experience as an assist-
' ant district attorney in the Women^s Night court and the Domestic Rela
tions court has proved.
Such a law, in my opinion and that of many other women to whom
I have spoken, will prevent many unsuccessful marriages. Not alone will
it do that, but it will guarantee to the coming generations the birthright
which countless thousands of children have been deprived of under our
