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.
The girl wanted her birthright...she wanted the man she loved to be the father of her child...but the state condemned her...for the sins of her parents. (Print Ad-Philadelphia Inquirer, ((Philadelphia, Penna.)) 15 September 1934)
