Is state sanctioned pre-natal infanticide (i.e. abortion under Roe v. Wade) inherently racist? Go back to the early decades of the 20th Century and there would be no doubt about the answer: eugenics, the science of population control, assumed that the perfectibility of man was possible by culling out the "weaker" strains of our species.
