Biological and Racial Mistakes

A discussion of Racism, Eugenics and Abortion

"Every single case of inherited defect, every malformed child, every congenitally tainted human being brought into this world is of infinite importance to that poor individual; but it is of scarcely less importance to the rest of us and to all of our children who must pay in one way or another for these biological and racial mistakes" - Margaret Sanger, The Pivot of Civilization (1922)

The historical confluence of eugenics, racism, population control advocacy, and abortion remains a worrisome aspect of the contemporary debate regarding the inalienable equal dignity of all human beings, born and unborn. Please join us for a discussion featuring a panel of distinguished experts:
