Description: In the late 1910s, Dr. Harry J. Haiselden, a prominent Chicago surgeon, electrified the nation by allowing the deaths of at least six infants he diagnosed as "defectives." Martin Pernick tells this captivating story -- uncovering forgotten sources and long-lost motion pictures -- in order to show how efforts to improve human heredity (eugenics) became linked with mercy killing, as well as with race, class, gender and ethnicity.
