The truth is not always pleasant, and in discussing eugenics it is unfortunate that it is often necessary to pain ugly pictures in order that by contrast there may be a greater appreciation of the beautiful; that the conditions which have made necessary the ugly pictures may point a lesson and inspire and influence the world to produce only the good and beautiful in life.
World Leaders Head Movement
So it is we present in a brief way some of the startling statements and findings of the Eugenics Record Office, at Cold Springs[sic] Harbor, Long Island, and the Bureau of Social Hygiene, New York, in which the former made the world stand aghast with the declaration that practically ten per cent of the present population of the United States are defectives, and that the ultimate aim of a campaign recently launched by the Cold Springs[sic] eugenic enterprise has for its purpose the "sterilization" of about 15,000,000 defectives.
These remarkable statements are not made by irresponsible persons, who, like the "quack doctors" and cheap medicine "fakers," are endeavoring to frighten the weak and suffering into pouring a stream of gold into their pockets, but by world leaders in the realm of science, medicine, and law and those fields of applied knowledge through which there may be wrought changes that will bring about the development of a nation of "supermen," and "superwomen."
