If there were ever a reason to favor sterilization as a requirement for receiving welfare, it’s the story of the octuplets. “Even before she gave birth to the octuplets Jan. 26, Suleman was receiving $490 in monthly food stamps, and three of her children were receiving federal supplemental security income because they are disabled.”
Now there are eight more kids that the taxpayers have to support, with expensive medical problems.
Because society no longer believes that it's appropriate to let these children die because of the gross irresponsibility of the mother, the only humane way to prevent this sort of stuff from happening again is to require sterilization of anyone who would receive food stamps or other sorts of welfare.
Yes, I know this is old news which I should have blogged about days ago.
