What exactly is Eugenics?
Eugenics is trying to change the gene pool by affecting breeding.
Positive eugenics would involve encouraging certain partners to breed
to enhance good traits. Negative eugenics would involve preventing
certain partners from breeding in an attempt to eliminate "bad" traits.
This is highly controversial, to say the least.
