Noyes justified this practice because his wife Harriet in the first six years of their marriage had five difficult childbirths, four of which were premature and resulted in the deaths of the children. Noyes came to the conclusion that where an unwanted pregnancy occurred, there was a waste of the man's seed and that it was no different in practice to masturbation. With the implementation of Male Continence, which lasted from 1848 to 1868, some forty children were born in the community of about two hundred and fifty

With this news, the family felt confused and scared. One of the family members described feeling to be the same as being raped, where they did it and nobody told them. The reporter even interprets that the “devil” in this whole study was Johns Hopkins University. One interviewee, Dr. Daniel Ford, states that, "Johns Hopkins needs to do a better job of communicating with the family and of recognizing it" but he also states that using Henrietta's genes was a standard practice at the time.

Abortion is the deliberate ending of a pregnancy by removing the fetus from the mother and should only be carried out by trained medical personnel. Abortion has existed for thousands of years of course in more primitive forms. It was restricted or forbidden by most world's religions, but it was not considered as a criminal offense until the past 100 years. Because of the high maternal death rate associated with illegal abortions, legislative action in the 21st century has been aimed at permitting the termination of unwanted pregnancies for medical, social or private reasons. Some countries now with moderately restrictive laws permit abortions to protect a women's health, to end pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, to avoid genetic or other defects, or in response to social problems such as unmarried status or low income.
