The proposal has been made by some that children are a burden.
Population experts tell us that we are heading for critical mass where
population growth will soon out-pace food supplies. Water, arable land
and natural resources are in limited supply. Such concerns, we are told,
affect us all, regardless of political affiliation. One mouth is just as
hungry as another.
One way to avert an over-population calamity is to shrink its size by
proactive means. Some prominent billionaires have devoted their
after-tax fortunes to such a task. A capital idea. But wouldn’t it be
best to eliminate only those who are true problems, those who lack
social utility? I believe “useless eaters” is the appropriate phrase. A
bit of discrimination is needed based on a studied statistical analysis.
A simple assessment of purpose and need are in order.
By all means, a person’s background and potential for contributing to
society should be taken into account. Only the best people should be
exempted from the weeding out process. No doubt we could convince
potential parents that their present “sacrifice” would result in a
benefit for those who remain, including themselves. What groups commit
the most crimes? What groups are a drain on tax dollars? There are other
sensitive but necessary questions to be asked. Margaret Sanger, founder
of Planned Parenthood, was not afraid to ask them. Such measures are for
the good of us all.
This is why I applaud the release of RU-486 by the FDA and the
promotion of all contraceptives by groups like Planned Parenthood and
the National Abortion Rights Action League. Abortions should be funded
by tax dollars. Make the procedure easy and cheap. Now, if we can only
get the right people to take these contraceptive measures.
Liberals should be the first to self-limit since contraception is
their message. They should be taking every inhibitor to reproduction
legal to them. Of course, we’ll look the other way if they choose some
illegal methods. Anything to support their cause.
The public schools, bastions of liberal social thought, should hand
out condoms by the truckload to anyone who wants them. Birth control
pills should be ground up and placed in the school’s drinking water.
(Christian kids should, of course, be warned not to drink the water.)
The pills should be flavored like candy and passed out as rewards to
students who can daily quote and practice the cardinal doctrines of
political correctness. School nurses should provide medical vouchers for
vasectomies; after all, we wouldn’t want to discriminate based on sex.
Only those who believe in the generosity of the paternal state could get
This will mean fewer liberals and anti-Christians in the future. Of
course, homeschoolers, private Christian schools, and non-liberal rebels
in the public schools will not participate.
So, while pro-abortion liberals are doing the environmentally
friendly and politically correct thing, Christian conservatives with
their large families will dominate the culture in a generation or two.
Better living through chemistry.
