The policy of Eugenics would rely in the idea of racial supremacy and since in a liberal western society, the idea of equality is deeply entrenched there would be no way to make eugenics politically acceptable in a western democracy.

The only argument I could think of is the 'tyranny of the majority' or even 'tyranny of the minority' where you could make it culturally acceptable by demonising a particular vocal minority through influence of the media.
