Emily Byer from The Parousian Post blog has a good article in the LSU newspaper on Planned Parenhood’s 90th anniversary and its founder Magaret Sanger. There have been several comments to her article, most positive, but one that is extremely scary.

As for Eugenics – it is actually good, logical sense to let the infirm and addled live fulfilling fun live but NOT let them breed. How much strain would be taken off the healthcare system, how much misery avoided… In fact pre-WWII it was de-rigueur in most of US law; until Hitler became associated with the term. Tell us, really, what good does let 2 severally retarded and blind people reproduce do anyone?
Eugenics might be "playing God" but as Francis Crick said, "Someone has to." If that is not for you then fine; stick to your "alternate view" and beliefs and stay out of the way of the rest of us. Don’t like abortion – don’t have one. Don’t like sex – avoid it too.

Don’t like slavery, don’t own one. Don’t like murder, don’t kill anyone. Though what immediately comes to mind is in this commenter’s case " Don’t like reason, don’t use it. "
