This question has been on the back of my mind for a week or so. The most common argument against incest is that it has an increased chance of producing babies with defects. Alternatively, one of the principals behind eugenics is to breed out undesirable genetic traits, such as an inclination for cancer or heart disease. Given the similarity, are they examples of the same line of thinking or are they different somehow?
