A few days ago, I saw a disturbing story on the news. A dead baby was found in suitcase on an Erie street. Apparently, a woman starved her 14-month old, left her to die, stuffed her in suitcase, and then put that suitcase in her neighbor's trash can. You can read the story in the PG. Other than this woman murdering her child, the thing that really gets me riled up is this: In addition to the baby she birthed and killed, this 20-year-old woman also has a two- and a three-year old as well as one on the way. So for the past four years, this woman has gotten pregnant, had a baby, gotten pregnant a few months after giving birth, had a second baby, gotten pregnant a few months after giving birth, had a third baby, and gotten pregnant for the fourth time.
Isn't that lovely?
This woman should be sterilized, plain and simple. If that seems too strong (and I don't think it is), then she should be forced to receive monthly birth control shots or be inserted with that device that prevents pregnancy for something like five years. I assume this woman is on welfare, and as I and others have said before, people on welfare should not be allowed to reproduce if they want to keep receiving their checks. I expressed my strong feelings on this subject in another post almost a year ago. In fact, with all the advances in science, why hasn't anyone come up with a male birth control shot? What goes for women on welfare should go for men. But it probably won't happen in my lifetime.
I know that this goes against my religion. And I am sorry that I am suggesting the government put its nose into someone's private life. But enough is enough. How many children have to die and how much money do the rest of us need to fork out for low-life people before something changes?
Walking away now...
