In addition, findings in the social sciences contradicted many of the beliefs promulgated by the more ardent eugenicists. Despite a mass of accumulating evidence that eugenics programs could never be effective, the enthusiasm for controlling the perceived negative impact of “bad” genes continued during the 1930s. Sterilization laws were passed in a number of countries. It was only after the horrendous consequences of Nazi attempts to wipe out whole groups of people in the 1940s that the eugenics movement lost all credibility.

The products of meiosis I carry 23 duplicated chromosomes (23d) from cells that entered meiosis I with 46 chromosomes. Meiosis II consists of a combined G1/G2 phase followed by prophase II (PII), metaphase II (MII), and telophase II (TII). The final products of the meiotic process are cells that contain 23 chromosomes that comprise one of each of the original set of 23 pairs of chromosomes. In human females, each meiotic process produces one functional gamete and three nonfunctional cells called polar bodies.
