  • Summary

Professor Alison Dundes Renteln examines science in the courts, particularly focusing on eugenics. When eugenics was still considered a real science, many states permitted compulsory sterilization of people deemed to be a threat to the American genetic base. The Supreme Court upheld this policy, and even though eugenics has now been discredited, the precedent still stands.
