    Default Eugenics: what do you think?

    Another article Nine-Year-Old Dies, Father Hides Death for Four Days about people having disabled child after disabled child has made me bang my head against a wall... Why doesn't somebody ask questions? Get involved? At least advise the couple to stop having children!

    I am a firm believer in some sort of negative eugenics. Many people seem to believe you have a "right" to procreate as much as you have a right to free speech or to own property. I disagree, because in many cases the taxpayers end up having to support women's decisions to let somebody shoot their diseased seed into them, sometimes when they are well aware of the risks. Something ceases to be a right when it harms other people in some way, whether immidiately or in the future. Liberty is not the same as licence.

    Anyway, I am interested to see what others' views are, and have also attached an extract on eugenics which explains the rationale well.

    They are still public. I'm surprised an intellect such as yourself didn't recognize that.

    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Thanks to the term eugenics, I always remember that the name Eugenie means "well-born".

    Otherwise, I don't much care for eugenics.

    I support genetic testing, advising couples on the risks associated with having children, and all in all allowing people to access as much biological information that they can.

    I am on the fence on the idea of genetic engineering a child by picking and removing traits. Some areas I am fine with, others I am against.

    I do not support the notion of placing laws allowing or disallowing individuals to have children.


    From what I understand of eugenics, I generally don't support it.

    I'm okay with the idea of informing people of the risks of having children and making contraception available if they decide not to have children. I do not support forced sterilization, or genetically modifying children. This might not be a popular opinion, but I'm also not in favor of aborting babies if the parents learn they will be disabled. Well, depending on the disability. If they aren't able to live outside the womb that's a bit different. Although, doctors have been wrong about such things before.

    The USA gave the world Eugenics and it was taken by the Germans and refined into the holocaust.

    And what? The gun toting Americans want to give us Eugenics again?

    What do you take us for?

    Everyone has their off days. I have made a mental note to mock you for the next mistake you make.

    In the 1930s countries besides the US and Germany practiced eugenics, and the idea actually originated in England with Francis Galton. You may to interested to know that Sweden, that bastion of socialism, had a eugenics program up until the 1970s. Ouch.

    I take you for a washed up former hippie who hasn't figured out that times have changed.
