Eugenics, Alive and Well Today

http://ideas.time.com/2013/07/10/eugenics-are-alive-and-well-in-the-united-states/ This article is about modern eugenics in California. 148 female inmates were unwillingly sterilized, with some having to be coerced into the procedure.

  1. I found a list of sterilization laws by state.
    And I also found another article on it.

    I'm not entirely sure how bad eugenics is as an idea, but it seems that it typically gets a bad reputation because generally speaking it is referred to as "Hitler's Eugenics" or used in such a context.

    DQ: Is the idea of eugenics bad, or is it typically seen in a bad light because of the way that the Nazi's used eugenics?
