The Sanger Parade Marches On

When Barbara Harris began her story on how she adopted her children I paid attention because it was a similar story of our path to adoption. We both received children from drug addicts who knew they were incapable to raise that child. I soon found that we both reacted differently from this similar experience.

Where as when we found out the birth mother was pregnant again we located another family seeking to adopt. A word of mouth network began and several children of women in trouble have been adopted. We are no longer in the loop but referrals are still happening - no web site needed.

Now Barb took a different tact. She thinks these types of women should not breed. She has set up an organization to pay these women (and men) to be sterilized.

"Hey Girls, just say yes to this little procedure and we will give you $300.00" Her business is death and business is booming. Now she exporting, starting in the UK

"More children for the fit, less from the unfit - that is the chief aim of birth control." Margaret Sanger 1919

In that same vien a Louisiana State Rep., John LaBruzzo is putting together another program to help society: "What I'm really studying is any and all possibilities that we can reduce the number of people that are going from generational welfare to generation welfare," he said.
He said his program would be voluntary. It could involve tubal ligation, encouraging other forms of birth control or, to avoid gender discrimination, vasectomies for men. This program would pay the volunteers $1,000.00.
It could also include tax incentives for college-educated, higher-income people to have more children, he said.

Fortunately the state legislature put the kibosh on that - for now.

Final thought:
"This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life so that you and your children may live." Deut. 30-19

Yah, well.

In the early 1900's, the Progressives in Wisconsin called for mandatory sterilization of the "feebleminded."

At that time, the Progressives were all Republicans. The Catholic Bishops rallied the troops--and since then, the Democrat party has dominated Wisconsin elective offices.

And now the Democrats just want to kill babies.
Yes, the parade of Death Lovers has been with us a long time with no end in sight.
I for one refuse to throw in the towel.

Hello, I have a question quite unrelated to the immediate subject, since, however, I failed to conceive a better place to post it, here it is:
Can anyone tell me whether GK Chesterton and Joseph Conrad ever effectively met? exchanged any meaningful words? and if so, further: what did they think/say of each other (not necessarily each directly to the other, but to anyone, at any moment)? Given the common acquaintances (H.G. Wells for one)and J.C.'s well-known disapproval twd. all sorts of revolutionary left (while maintaining good personal relations with many of its proponents - much like G.K. Ch. and G.B. Shaw) one may easily form a notion what the common ground would have been, had they actually met, but I would love to know for sure and be extremely obliged if anyone was kind enough to tell me. Once again, I apologise for coming in off topic.
