Quote of the Week - C.P. Blacker

Psychologist C. P. Blacker called for a strategy of "crypto-eugenics," saying "you seek to fulfill the aims of eugenics without disclosing what you are really aiming at and without mentioning the word."

Blacker was appointed by Margaret Sanger to be first director general of the International Planned Parenthood Federation.

Although C.P. Blacker's call for a strategy of "crypto-eugenics" might sound like a good idea in theory, it does not appear that this strategy can work effectively in practice.

From whom does Blacker intend to hide the eugenics that are being implemented? Moreover, does Blacker even have a legal right to implement the eugenics without the knowledge of the person on whom they are being used?

Indeed, the legal and ethical ramifications of such an undertaking must be thoroughly reviewed before "crypto-eugenics" can be allowed to occur.
