Stats and Analysis Overview - Stop Planned Parenthood
In 1907, Indiana passed the world’s first involuntary sterilization law based on the theory of eugenics. In time, more than 30 states and a dozen foreign countries followed suit. Although the Indiana statute was later declared unconstitutional, other laws restricting immigration and regulating marriage on "eugenic" grounds were still in effect in the U.S. as late as the 1970s. A Century of Eugenics in America assesses the history of eugenics in the United States and its status in the age of the Human Genome Project. The essays explore the early support of compulsory sterilization by doctors and legislators; the implementation of eugenic schemes in Indiana, Georgia, California, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Alabama; the legal and social challenges to sterilization; and the prospects for a eugenics movement basing its claims on modern genetic science.
History of Psychology By David B
The twentieth century was a time of great progress for North Carolina. New scientific advancements helped to steadily advance the health of the citizens, but the state hoped to improve their health further by establishing state-wide programs. One of the largest of these was the Eugenics program, in which the state hoped to increase the quality of health in future generations of North Carolinians by controlling who was allowed to procreate. This study guide chronicles the development of the Eugenics program in North Carolina. The featured documents record the ideology behind the practice, the development of the policies of eugenic sterilization, as well as the program's decline and reparations movements.

STOPP - Stop Planned Parenthood - Stats and Analysis Overview
Planned Parenthood has targeted African-American communities across the country, building large abortion facilities in black neighborhoods. Planned Parenthoods founder, Margaret Sanger, was a proponent of eugenics. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the eugenics movement sought to "improve" the human species and preserve racial "purity" through planned human breeding. Sanger wrote in a letter dated December 10, 1939: "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Sanger wrote the comment as a part of her collaboration in The Negro Project.
