From The Unborn To The Born

In China, contraception is now apparently important enough to go ahead and start killing people already born. Truly a great leap forward for that nation's birth control program.

On March 21, family planning officials entered the home of Xu Shuaishuai to seize his sister for a forced sterilization. Unable to find her, they beat Xu’s father and when Xu defended his father from the attack, one of the Chinese population control officials stabbed him twice in the heart with a long knife. Xu died on the way to the hospital.

“This murder is a shocking and extreme example of how coercive family planning presses fear into the hearts of the Chinese people every day,” Littlejohn said. “Women who become pregnant without a birth permit — illegally pregnant — are terrified of discovery and forced abortion. Fathers feel helpless to protect their wives and children. Paid informants — friends, neighbors, co-workers — tear down trust in Chinese society. Family members are detained and tortured.”

Littlejohn said the one child forced abortion and sterilization policy “is causing a demographic disaster for China.”

“Due to the traditional preference for boys, girls are disproportionately aborted,” she explained. “This “gendercide” has given rise to a critical gender imbalance: there are now an estimated 37 million more men than women in China. This gender imbalance is a driving force behind sexual slavery, not only in China but in the surrounding countries as well.”

Let me guess. You're thinking, "This could never happen here." It already happened here.

It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind...Three generations of imbeciles are enough.

Oliver Wendell Holmes said this in the Supreme Court Case of Buck v. Bell. There was only one dissenter in that decision. Sure, I suppose it's ok, since they didn't murder anybody on their way to sterilizing the party in question, but what would have happened if someone had offered the same level of resistance as is described above. At least jail time.

Oh, you might mean that it couldn't happen here NOW. Right. Never in a nation that devalues life to the tune of millions of dead babies a year. I feel a lot better knowing that I live in the enlightened times of our present rather than in our barbaric past when killing those babies was illegal. We're clearly a lot smarter now.
