Watch the lecture video. As you watch the lecture, answer the following questions. If
any questions please let me know. Also, I would need the MLA citation after answering the 3 questions.
1. How did American culture and the law treat abortions from the 1600s to the 1920s? Why do you think
arguments against abortion in the 19th century (1800s) differed so radically from anti-abortion arguments made
2. Why did the concept of Republican Motherhood only apply to middle-class white women? Do you think that
that the Republican Motherhood was empowering for white middle-class women? Why or why not?
3. What was Eugenics and how do you think it impacted women deemed “unfit” to be parents?
