Tomorrow's Children (1934) Donald Douglas

A young woman wishes to marry her boyfriend and raise a family, but because her own family has been deemed "defective" by the state health authorities--her parents are lazy alcoholics who continue to have children, and her siblings(brothers here) are crippled, have mental problems or are jailed--she is ordered by a court to undergo sterilization so that her family's "defective genes" won't be passed on to any more children. Her boyfriend and a kindly priest desperately search for a way to stop the forced sterilization before it's too late.

As an exploitation film this is one of the best in production values. The premise of this film deals in eugenics the idea that the "inferior" should be sterilized for the good of society. Yes this really did happen, and unfortunately it's still happening. In 2013 it came to light that dozens of female inmates in California had been illegally sterilized. Eugenics is part of the "New World Order", if you want proof just look up, The Georgia Guidstones and UN Agenda 21. What this film could not deal with is the fact that most of the sterilizations in the US were done on blacks. In 1921, Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League, which later became Planned Parenthood. In a letter Sanger wrote “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population...". See this film, eugenics and population control have not gone away.★★★
