Separating identical twins for “research”

From NPR’s Talk of the Nation:
 

Identical twins Paula Bernstein (left) and Elyse

Bernstein grew up unaware that they had an identical twin. Their new
memoir, Identical Strangers, chronicles their story of separation, reunion and identity.

from the adoption agency indicate that the identical twins’ separation
and adoption placement in the late 1960s was connected to a
psychological study investigating the effects of nature versus nurture.
