Summary
"Ann Farmer illuminates a dark corner of modern Western history in her new study of the English abortion campaign. This book aims to correct long-held assumptions that the abortion campaign was the product of feminism and concern about backstreet abortion, and argues instead that it was the fruit of the eugenics/population control movement. Associated with Nazi Germany, eugenics is a social philosophy that advocates the improvement of the human race through various forms of intervention. Farmer argues; despite their compassionate rhetoric, female abortion advocates were all eugenicists obsessed with controlling the quality and quantify of mankind. In addition to abortion, birth control, and sterilization, "solutions" included even the lethal chamber; abortion advocates worked closely with American and German eugenicists despite Nazi anti-Semitism."--Jacket
