more history that you probably didn't get in school


There is a chilling line in The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide
"Only in Nazi Germany was sterilization a forerunner of mass murder..."
Given the widespread prevalence of contraceptive sterilization (permanent and temporary) in our culture, I can only hope that this is a true statement. But given the increasing acceptance of first abortion and now euthanasia, I have my doubts.
also worth reading (if you have a strong stomach):
The War Against the Weak
Mentally and Physically Handicapped
The Origins of Nazi Genocide
Medicine under the Nazis
