Excerpt from Eugenics: The Science of Human Improvement by Better Breeding

I propose briefly to consider what is the present state of our knowledge of the inheritance of various characteristics.

The limitations in the scope of this booklet must be made clear at the outset. As a biologist, not a physician, I shall not consider many acquired conditions which render unfit for marriage. Governments spend scores of thousands of dollars and establish rigid inspections to prevent the spread of the coitus disease of the horse but the Spirochete parasite that causes the corresponding disease in man and entails endless misery on hundreds of thousands of innocent children may be disseminated by anybody, and is being disseminated by scores of thousands of persons in this country, unchecked, under the protection of the "personal liberty" flag. Alas! that so little thought is had to the loss of liberty of the infected children.
