The word "eugenics" evokes images of mad scientists and modern humanistic appeals from a bygone era. Howevever, what does eugenics look like in an updated and contemporary medical setting? Join us for a powerful interview with Rex Allison, producer of the documentary film "Labeled," which explores the experiences of parents of babies born with special needs. Parents share how the health care industry, which is supposed to heal and sustain life, actually worked to subvert the purpose of medicine when it came to these families and their babies. Join us as we have a very serious discussion about the creeping resurgence of contemporary eugenics, euthanasia, and medical ethics against the best interests of parents and children.
Find the video trailer to "Labeled" that will be played for the program.
From the website:
Labeled exposes the shocking reality of how parents of some children diagnosed with genetic disorders are tragically being told their child’s condition is lethal and incompatible with life. Once labeled, children may have life sustaining food and medical care withheld or withdrawn, without the consent or knowledge of their parents.
