Eugenics Are Now On the Table

Whatever else may be said in favor of the new administration, the willingness to embrace eugenics is an unspeakable evil. But this is where I think we have come to--we now propose abortion as a means of cutting the budget.

Gary Graham in a recent post on Big Hollywood has this to say:

Nancy Pelosi tells us yesterday that ‘family planning’ is now a fiscal responsibility to ‘reduce costs.’ Her defenders will say that NO, she’s talking about condoms and sex education. But anyone with a mind who’s been around for a while knows that ‘family planning’ is code for abortion. She is asking for 200 million dollars for Family Planning Services to ‘expand the economy.’ These are taxpayer dollars, dontcha know. Your money. She says states are in terrible fiscal crisis and it’s ‘part of what we do for childrens’ health and education’…” I’m trying to figure out how ripping an unborn child from it’s womb is aiding in it’s health or education, but maybe I’m missing something here.
How have we found ourselve here?

Speaking about his own youth and support of liberal abortion laws, Graham says that "I was only concerned about my selfish convenience of the day. But I didn’t want to know, I didn’t want to think about it. It was inconvenient to think about it."

He concludes by observing the irony "that the ‘Love’ Generation should spawn such a culturally accepted abomination as abortion."

Compare this with the words of His Beatitude Metropolitan at the recent Life for March in Washington, DC:

May God have mercy on us for what we have done.
