Winston Churchill and Theodore Roosevelt were early proponents of eugenics, as were the feminist heroines Margaret Sanger and Marie Stopes. The iconic Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote the Supreme Court opinion in the Buck case upholding Virginia's law of compulsory sterilization, noting that "three generations of imbeciles are enough." It is ironic if the Supreme Court would endorse the "disparate impact" theory and enforce quotas on other people, considering that it is composed of 6 Catholics and 3 Jews in a country which is overwhelmingly Protestant and that it has no white southerners at all, although white southerners are the largest single ethnic group in the nation.
