By Their Fruits

On the subject of eugenics, Ann Farmer has published a new book entitled By Their Fruits: Eugenics, Population Control and the Abortion Movement, examining the history of the abortion movement and the link between population control and eugenics.

This book is a timely work of revisionism which challenges the received wisdom that the population control and abortion movements have ever been altruistic or pro-woman in their ethos.
