When Bad is Good or Look What I Found in the Cornflakes
An astounding new study in the British medical journal Human Reproduction this week has revealed that French sperm counts plunged by a third between 1989 and 2005, 32.2 percent or about 1.9 percent annually. The findings of one of the largest sperm quality probes ever. Might there be a link between impaired fertility and Genetically Modified Food and mandatory vaccinations?
Crossing the street, talking to a bright 20 something about kids and population, she said, ‘We should have a test to be sure young people are qualified to have kids.’ ‘What if they don’t pass the test,’ I mused? ‘Well… they shouldn’t be allowed to have children.’ That’s what Hitler thought. It leads to the Holocaust. In his mind a good thing. ‘No way,’ she said.
Caring for children is a tremendous responsibility. Abuse is rampant causing permanent physical, emotional and social damage and none of this is the child’s fault. It feels like a good idea to limit population to those who are qualified. But who’s to decide? Who is going to write the test? Which one of us is smart enough to decide which species are approved of and which don’t make the cut? What skin color will we approve? Which language? Which belief system, national, political or religious beliefs? Some view same sex – sex a crime. We can get rid of them, no problem. And so it goes.
Who shouldn’t be allowed to have children (birth control) and who should be allowed to populate the planet (population control) are two sides of the same coin and often fueled by the same well intended logic as my young friend and Hitler.
