Joe Biden’s macabre support of China’s forced abortion/sterilization one-child policy

Vice President Joe Biden is known for his foolish gaffes and inappropriate statements – not positive attributes, particularly in a politician. But what Biden said in China on August 20 was beyond foolish and inappropriate. It was macabre, it was sick… I never thought anyone could match Barack Obama’s penchant for abortion. As you know, […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat A NPR blog has statistics on the percentage of OB/GYNs who provide abortions: 97% of OB-GYNs have encountered patients wanting an abortion, but only 14% of the doctors perform them, according to a study published today in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Biden to China: “Not second-guessing” one-child policy, it’s just “not sustainable”

Your policy has been one which I fully understand – I’m not second-guessing – of one child per family. The result being that you’re in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable. ~ Vice President Joe Biden (pictured above with granddaughter Naomi and US Ambassador to […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Margaret Somerville comments on “deselecting our children”: Here’s a recent Danish headline: “Plans to make Denmark a Down syndrome-free perfect society.” The Danes want to promote aborting fetuses with Down syndrome, so their society will be free of such people around 2030.

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
