Cleaning up the gene pool

To make sure: I am not one of the pro-lifers. I think that it is up to the woman to decide on the whole issue, without the government or this or other religious cleric dictating to her the outcome.

However, this is way beyond sane.

Because when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief she was helping to save the planet.
Incredibly, so determined was she that the terrible "mistake" of pregnancy should never happen again, that she begged the doctor who performed the abortion to sterilise her at the same time.

He refused, but Toni - who works for an environmental charity - "relentlessly hunted down a doctor who would perform the irreversible surgery.

Finally, eight years ago, Toni got her way.

At the age of 27 this young woman at the height of her reproductive years was sterilised to "protect the planet".
I am not in agreement with Rogue Jew who calls for splaying of liberals and other similar life forms. I believe that the group called "liberals" contains its share of idiots like any other group selected according to a political label.

I agree with him, however, that Toni made a good decision, somewhat reducing the percentage of potential politically motivated idiots in the gene pool. The more the merrier!
