In the early century, infanticide and abortion are used as method of family planning. But infanticide, the killing of new born babies was the most universal solution to periodic over population in pre-industrial societies. It was used to control population and at times the sex ratio where the sexual division of labour dictated some groups practice infanticide, be in the absence of medical technique. It was less risky and painful than abortion. It is significant to note that infanticide was not just a primitive practice: Aristotle and plato recommended it for eugenic reasons. And if not acceptable today, it may be because we have better birth control methods, and not because we are morally superior. Gordon 1986
However, infanticide and abortion became a criminal practise during the 18th century and 19th centuries and there practice is documented in transcript of trials and in Newspaper. This evidence suggest that both were wide spread. Anybody seen practising this method of birth control were usually hung.
