As for my beliefs: the government must compensate, must put out a forceful apology, and repudiate it. Bioethics standards must continue to focus attention on the academics and other walks of life that still promote the ideology that some are not fit to breed, and that some, because of illness or circumstance, are unworthy of life.
The issue is, Eugenics, as a scientific outlook, existed far before the 1920s, encompassed a large number of individuals from all walks of life and professions, and both liberal and conservative dispositions. It even claimed favor of two of our presidents. Yet, it also claimed much of the Western world, including Britain, and of course, Germany. It targeted a large number of groups, ranging from the poor, the promiscuous, the racially inferior, to the disabled and mentally handicapped.
