I recently read a blog by Margarita Tartakovsky, M.S., on the psychcentral blog World of Psychology discussing Eugenics and Carrie Buck, who was a woman who was sterilized in 1927 in the State of Virginia because some viewed her and her family as imbeciles and that they should not reproduce.
Horrendous as this is, considering no one knows how a person will turn out, regardless of his or her environment or hereditary issues–many “higher ups” in society considered eugenics to be the right thing to do.
