Halliday Sutherland

"A born writer, especially a born story-teller. Dr. Sutherland, who is distinguished in medicine, is an amateur in the sense that he only writes when he has nothing better to do. But when he does, it could hardly be done better." G.K. Chesterton.

Book: Exterminating Poverty

Exterminating Poverty is the incredible true story about the eugenic plan to get rid of the poor, and the Scottish doctor who fought against it.

The book has been published on Amazon kindle and a paperback edition will go on sale on 31st July 2020.

While the book centres around the Stopes –v– Sutherland libel trial of 1923, it explains the background that led to the case:

  • tuberculosis – a plague that killed 70,000 Britons each year,
  • eugenics – a psuedo-science that believed that TB was caused by the weak genes of its victims, and
  • the heartless eugenicists who saw TB as beneficial to Britain because it did an effective job of killing the so-called “unfit” before they could have children.
