How awful, how dreadful, how widespread, how wrong, . . . how in retrospect.
Just a few jolts off the old internet:
In the UK.
In residential schools.
In Britain in the sixties as archived by the NIH.
And Aubrey Levin from South Africa to Calgary.
Can you believe it? It was going on in places other than BYU? It still goes on. And I thought Mormons were the only ones involved in such sordid research and practice?
Any of you scientifically inclined souls care to have a run explaining the scientific community's one time fascination and embrace of Eugenics while we are at it?
Or care to at least tell the whole story in the context of the times?
I'm still waiting for the documentary evidence that BYU's "studies" occurred without informed consent.
