President Teddy Roosevelt: ‘Society Has No Business to Permit Degenerates to Reproduce’

“I agree with you if you mean, as I suppose you do, that society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind. It is really extraordinary that our people refuse to apply to human beings such elementary knowledge as every successful farmer is obliged to apply to his own stock breeding.” -Progressive President Teddy Roosevelt
