• People categorised as unfit were living instead of dying out and allowing only the strongest to survive. Eugenics is the study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population Reasons for bringing eugenics to Britain • Over population due to higher birth rate amongst the lower classes. This is because they believed that through eugenics and selected breeding only the strongest and greatest specimens of the species would survive. Inspiration Galton took inspiration from his cousin Charles Darwin’s origin of species. • Selective breeding should be enforced so that “unfit” wouldn’t continue to be the downfall of Britain. Solution It is believed that eugenicists wanted to control the birth rate of the lower classes because they believed that it was the upper class public who possessed preferred inheritable traits and that the lower class where violent mobs who did not possess any preferred traits.What was eugenics? Who supported it and why? Craig Fitzsimmons (fitzsimmonsc@hotmail. Reasons for these measures • Eugenicists believed natural selection had stopped working due to medical advancements and charity. • Upper class wanted lower class to die out because they saw themselves as superior. Galton did not take into account the idea that those families success came from privilege and social circumstances. .

Support for movement The Eugenics movement was most popular amongst the people from middle class backgrounds.co. When Galton conducted his research he believed that families with better reputations where more likely to produce more gifted offspring. Problems The main problem that eugenics faced was that the logic behind all the research suggested that the upper class citizens must have all the desired qualities needed to reproduce the most genetically superior children just because they are of a higher class. Definition The term eugenics was first coined by Sir Francis Galton in 1883.
