THE TEXTBOOK IS : you must answer 1. question 1 ( 200 words and a quote included ) 2. question 2 ( 200 words and a quote included ) 3. question 3 ( 200 words and a quote included ) when you answer the question label them. for ex 1. 2. 3. In 1924 Virginia adopted a statute authorizing the compulsory sterilization (i.e. a procedure that renders persons unable to have children) of persons with intellectual disabilities for the purpose of eugenics. Carrie Buck an 18-year-old was described by the superintendent of the Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded as “feebleminded” (an archaic term used to label individuals who had intellectual disabilities or who had certain cognitive impairments) and a genetic threat to society. Carrie was housed at the same institution as her mother who was also labeled as feebleminded. In addition Carrie was the mother of a child born outside of marriage who was classified as feebleminded. The superintendent requested that Carrie be sexually sterilized so she would be unable to have additional children arguing that it was for the betterment of society. The Supreme Court agreed. In an 8 to

1 decision Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes stated: It is better for all the world if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind…Three generations of imbeciles are enough. (274 U.S. 200 P. 208). Eugenics sterilization programs were eventually abolished. In fact in 2002 Virginia Governor Mark Warner formally apologized for Virginias sterilization program (Virginia governor apologizes 2002). In 2015 the Virginia General Assembly approved payments of up to $25000 to persons sterilized under Virginias eugenics program (Virginia to compensate 2015). 1. Is this sufficient recourse for Virginias prior practice of sterilization? Why or why not? Explain your answer.

2 Today the debate continues about castration (usually through the administration of drugs) of sex offenders. Arguments for the practice suggests it reduces recidivism and increases the safety of citizens (e.g. namely children). Arguments against the practice highlight moral and medical concerns about implementing compulsory sterilization and indicate possible due process and cruel and unusual punishment issues (Runckel 1997). In light of what youve learned which side of the argument do you find more persuasive? Why or why not? Explain your answer. *Note–California was the first U.S. state to specify the use of chemical castration for repeat child molesters as a condition of their parole.
