Name:Ferguson’s NotesDate:Chapter: 16Key Points:The Holocaust (con’t)Unit/Era:World War LoomsDetails:Buck v. Bell (con’t)1.2.Questiona.Did the Virginia statute which authorizedsterilization deny Buck the right to dueprocess of the law and the equal protection ofthe laws as protected by the FourteenthAmendment?Conclusiona.The Court found that the statute did notviolate the Constitution. Justice Holmesmade clear that Buck's challenge was notupon the medical procedure involved but onthe process of the substantive law. Sincesterilization could not occur until a properhearing had occurred (at which the patientand a guardian could be present) and after theCircuit Court of the County and the SupremeCourt of Appeals had reviewed the case, if sorequested by the patient. Only after "monthsof observation" could the operation takeplace. That was enough to satisfy the Courtthat there was no Constitutional violation.Citing the best interests of the state, JusticeHolmes affirmed the value of a law likeVirginia's in order to prevent the nation from"being swamped with incompetence . . . Threegenerations of imbeciles are enough."Summary:Class Website: 110
