Eugenics in the Unites States
Nazi Germany committed unbelievable horrors in the 1930's and 40's in the name of genetic improvement. What is not so well known is the history of eugenics in the United States.

Dr. Colin Ross outlines the unforgivable programs in our own country that subscribed to many of the same theories regarding sexual promiscuity, mental retardation and poverty. The Tuskegge experiment knowingly left poor African American men untreated for venereal disease to test the disease effects. Impoverished women, alcoholics an the mentally retarded were sterilized with no access to legal representation.

Think it can't happen here? It already has.
