Eugenicist: birth control and abortion are great eugenic advances

Frederick Osborn was: “the key strategist of the American Eugenics Society and the first president of the Population Council. Well before surgical abortion became a major issue, Osborn advocated research on chemical abortion and the Population Council’s distribution of abortifacient IUDs”

He was quoted saying:

“Birth control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time. If they had been advanced for eugenic reasons, it would have retarded or stopped their acceptance.”
