Moral Considerations Aside...

A report published in the new issue of the oh-so-prestigious New England Journal of Medicine suggests that Communist China should finally end its one-child population control policy that has resulted in forced abortions and sterilizations for those who violate it. Why?

"With the freedoms that have resulted from wealth and globalization, the one-child policy seems increasingly anachronistic," says the NEJM repor. "A relaxation of the one-child policy would be desirable."

Hmm...Forcing parents to kill their children isn't described by the NEJM as barbarity of the cruelest kind. Nor is it presented as a horrible affront to a holy God. No, the Red's violently coercive abortion policy should stop ( the report actually says only "relaxed") because it is outdated... so 1970's. Sigh.
