Eugenics, the effort to improve the human species by inhibiting reproduction of 'inferior' genetic strains, ultimately came to be regarded as the great shame of the Progressive movement. Judith Daar, a prominent expert on the intersection of law and medicine, argues that current attitudes toward the potential users of modern assisted reproductive technologies threaten to replicate eugenics' same discriminatory practices. In this work, Daar asserts how barriers that block certain people's access to reproductive technologies are often founded on biases rooted in notions of class, race and marital status.
