Seguimos con la eugenesia

In the early 1940s, a Mrs. Hayes decided that her daughter, Velma, wasn’t worth the trouble. She committed her to Oregon’s Fairview Hospital and Training Center at Salem. Some fifteen years later, in 1957, a Mr. Morris decided that his 13-year old daughter Ruth required some education: taking the “Training Center” portion of the name literally, he committed his daughter to the same institution. Another decade and a half later, in 1973, two Alabama officials knocked on the door of Minnie Relf, an illiterate mother of three children and a Medicaid recipient. They told her that her daughter needed some shots.

All three women were sterilized by the state.
