  • The Oregonian has an article on the opening and protest of a new large Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Portland, OR.
  • In his Washington Post column, Michael Gerson shares some information from Edwin Black’s recent book, War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America’s Campaign to Create a Master Race
  • Black points out that early last century, the American Breeders Association – supported by generous grants from Andrew Carnegie – created a committee to study “the best practical means for cutting off the defective germ-plasm of the American population.” The panel included doctors, economists and attorneys from Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the University of Chicago.
    Black continues: “During a number of subsequent conferences, they carefully debated the ‘problem of cutting off the supply of defectives,’ and systemically plotted a bold campaign of ‘purging the blood of the American people of the handicapping and deteriorating influences of these anti-social classes.’ 10 groups were eventually identified as ‘socially unfit’ and targeted for ‘elimination.'” Among those groups, according to Black, were the “feebleminded,” epileptics, the “insane,” the “deformed” and the “deaf.”
