Eugenics is a social philosophy that the human race could be improved by making sure desired traits in humans are passed on and that undesirable ones are not. Eugenics was widely supported in the USA and it all began with the story of Carrie Elizabeth Buck who, in 1927, was a victim of the state of Virginia’s eugenics program.
On March 20, 1924 the Virginia General Assembly passed SB 281, The Sterilization Act, “to prevent the procreation of feebleminded, insane, epileptic, inebriate, criminalistics, and other degenerate persons with inferior hereditary potentialities”.
Carrie Buck was operated upon at the Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded, making sure she was never able to have another child.
