bumping for later...
well, look at the Rats, and if they are not “the great horde of defecatives”, then what is?
To further support your point, from wikipedia:
"Breeding of human beings was suggested at least as far back as Plato, but the modern field and term was first formulated by Sir Francis Galton in 1865, drawing on the recent work of his cousin Charles Darwin. From its inception eugenics was supported by prominent thinkers, including Alexander Graham Bell, George Bernard Shaw, and Winston Churchill. Financial support for the advocacy of eugenics came from the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Harriman interests. Eugenics was an academic discipline at many colleges and universities. Its scientific reputation started to tumble in the 1930s, a time when Ernst Rüdin began incorporating eugenic rhetoric into the racial policies of Nazi Germany."
Also, there was a definite link between Sanger (planned parenthood) and Eugenics.
There can be a connection.
When scientists study the record of life on the planet, life clearly was here first as very simple lifeforms and developed over a long time to more complex forms - better adapted species survived - individuals who survived and mated had a chance to pass their genes along.
Now its not hard to see how that scientific evidence could be misused. That doesn’t make the science bad - it makes the misuse of the science bad.
Even the Bible can be distorted.

We can watch ice change into water and eggs become chickens but let the show begin to watch a monkey turn into man.
You may wish to read up on the Social Darwinism movement of the late 1800s as a link between Darwin and popular culture. The eugenics movement was a popular movement that would have gained no traction if there was not a widespread acceptance of the idea that some people are destined for greatness and the rest are just... vermin. Eugenics was widely embraced not because of scientific merit but because it was part of hip and trendy culture - a cause celeb of the ‘socially conscious’ and progressives who outgrew their social darwinist roots.
Wrong on two counts.
The lives of the unborn are already begun.
They do have the same *insistency* as those already born. Spoken like a true liberal and one who has (obviously) never been pregnant nor has any clue what the *average* man of woman is all about.
What an arrogant elitist attitude.
Is this self-parody?
