Actually this is an awesome idea that could help dictatorships and authoritarian regimes use more roleplaying ideas with this.

Some tweaks, though:

Name: Government policy with regards to negative eugenics.
Law/Policy Category: Civil Rights

Options:
1. The government does not engage in negative eugenics.
2. Citizens with undesirable traits (e.g. mental or physical illness, race, etc.) are forbidden to reproduce by law.
3. Citizens with undesirable traits (e.g. mental or physical illness, race, etc.) are actively exterminated.
4. This is left for the local governments to decide upon.

Effects:
1. No real effect, maybe an increase in civil rights.
2. Decrease in civil rights. Increase in government responsibility.
3. Significant decrease in civil rights. Increase in government responsibility.
4. Increase in devolution.

Name: Government policy with regards to positive eugenics.

Overall a good law, but with one minor flaw:

2. Citizens with desirable traits are encouraged to reproduce, without any active government involvement in this matter.

should be

2. Citizens with desirable traits are encouraged to reproduce.


Encouraging always means active involvement, usually through tax refunds or something.

Indeed, so in definition, the government encourages them to reproduce but does not get actively involved in the process with tax refunds and stuff and like that.

Some people would argue that this is an health issue since eugenics is implemented to improve collective health.

I think most would agree that allowing/forbidding to reproduce is a civil rights issue.

As it contains both, let's put it in the health section, seeing it has fewer proposals than the civil rights section.
