Eugenics, which aimed to improve society by preventing too many undesirables from being born, was a Progressive fascination. American writings on it became popular in the Germany in the early 1900's. That was fine at first--but then things went south. The Nazis took the idea to an extreme by eliminating undesirables who had already been born, and that gave eugenics a black eye it never recovered from. So in this country, the emphasis on planned population control then shifted to contraception and abortion. And just as was true in the hey-day of eugenics, abortion today is used disproportionately to prevent births by young black women.
Yes, and it is EVIL.
