https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugenics

Frederick Osborn's 1937 journal article "Development of a Eugenic Philosophy"[6] framed it as a social philosophy—that is, a philosophy with implications for social order. That definition is not universally accepted. Osborn advocated for higher rates of sexual reproduction among people with desired traits (positive eugenics), or reduced rates of sexual reproduction and sterilization of people with less-desired or undesired traits (negative eugenics).

People deemed unfit to reproduce often included people with mental or physical disabilities, people who scored in the low ranges of different IQ tests, criminals and deviants, and members of disfavored minority groups.

Prenatal screening can be considered a form of contemporary eugenics because it may lead to abortions of children with undesirable traits.

The statement just before this quote is: Consequently, many countries adopted eugenic policies with the intent to improve the quality of their populations' genetic stock.  

The key word there, obviously, is "countries."  

To equate individuals who support abortion with countries that support eugenics to influence the genetics of their population is as intellectually dishonest as it gets.

Semantics.
Making it legal to do so is not a problem?
