In unearthed letter urged President-elect Clinton to 'reform' country
A letter to Bill Clinton written by the co-counsel who successfully argued the Roe v. Wade decision urged the then-president-elect to "eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country" by liberalizing abortion laws. Ron Weddington, who with his wife Sarah Weddington represented "Jane Roe," sent the four-page letter to President Clinton's transition team before Clinton took office in January 1993.
The missive turned up in an exhibit put together by the watchdog legal group Judicial Watch, which has been researching the Clinton administration's policy on the abortion drug RU-486, notes James Taranto in the Wall Street Journal's Best of the Web.
Weddington qualified his statement, saying, "No, I'm not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to people who can't afford to have babies.
"There, I've said it. It's what we all know is true, but we only whisper it, because as liberals who believe in individual rights, we view any program which might treat the disadvantaged differently as discriminatory, mean-spirited and ... well ... Republican

don't believe it
Socialists are utopians going back to the 19th century and were determined to go to any length to attain their goals. From Margaret Sanger inspiring Hitler's National Socialist movement, the "Dream" is still alive and well today in these people. Satanic and evil to the core.
And would you believe the University of California (Berkeley) honored her with their "National Hero" award last year?
Smells like sabotage...ends justifying means: I'd want some verification and stuff.
Also consider the source: JW is not without stain.
I'm just darn skeptical.
Not impossible....just unlikely as heck.
It's hard to imagin the evil of some people, reminded me somewhat of Josef Mengele.
Nazis said the same thing....And Communists and Socialists...Now the American Demorats.
This isn't any better then the Brazillian practice of hiring mercenaries to just butcher the poor.
It's all about the unskilled and underpriveledged.. Hmm. We're all largely against abortion here and tacitly give lipservice to being for the poor and underpriveledged.. but the republican policy on this issue seems to be to export their job opportunities, import illegal aliens to keep them from making an income they can live off of and replace them in the workplace with H1 & L1 visa imports under the deciet that there is some sort of labor shortage. But we did cut their taxes...
If true, very disgusting. I have little faith in WND.
Most of us started out "poor". All of us started out "uneducated". Good thing our parents knew better.
The State Boys Rebellion
Its interesting that Germany looked to the US for its ideas on eugenics.
Excerpt from link:
Though they couldn't possible know it, the children of the Fernald State School were the victims of bad science and a newly developed bureaucracy designed to save America from the so-called "menace of the feebleminded." Beginning early in the twentieth century, United States health officials used crude versions of the modern IQ tests to identify supposedly "deficient" children and lock them away. The idea was to protect society from potential criminals and to prevent so-called undesirables from having children and degrading the American gene pool......
...... It reveals the danger in misguided science, the fearsome power of unchecked bureaucracies,
Considering the current unemployment rate, people are working somewhere... They are also spending a lot of money - cars, houses, etc. Many of them must have jobs that pay well.
Do you really think that people who advocate the abortion of millions have scruples?
If you still don't believe it, read Mr. Weddington's own words in the New York Times:
To the Editor:
Re "30 Years After Abortion Ruling, New Trends but the Old Debate" (front page, Jan. 20):
But for Roe v. Wade, millions more children would have been born into poverty, where they would be greeted by Congress and the state legislators who failed to provide money for day care, health care, education or job training.
Millions more would have joined the ranks of welfare recipients and the homeless, the populations of prisons, prostitutes and drug addicts.
All that, simply to pander to the religious beliefs of a minority who persist in claiming that a collection of cells, without reason or awareness, is human life with something called a soul.
As co-counsel in Roe v. Wade, I applaud the determination of J'Vante Anderson, the young woman in your article, to break the cycle of teenage mothers. But if her vow of abstinence fails, I hope that she can fall back on abortion, for her future and ours.
Austin, Tex., Jan. 20, 2003
I'd crawl on my knees over broken glass to pull the lever for a Republican to keep these evil monsters (Democrats) away from the levers of power.
If Weddington is writing this crap..he must make a lot of Dems very uncomfortable. I can't believe he didn't get a plane ticket to somewhere from Bill.
If you're talking about Olympia Snowe or Judy Barr Topinka the problem becomes somewhat less simple.
Keeping the monsters out of the majority is keeping them out of power.
