The wrong question

A simple proposal to reduce abortion from a eugenicist made me realize that the real problem with abortion and contraception in the United States isn't as much the answer as the Question.

The question should NOT be "How do we reduce the surplus population?". It should be "What has gone wrong with our economy that human beings are no longer valuable?" The first has a medical solution, if a horrific one. The second, requires an economic solution, which is harder. As a country, we'd rather kill the poor than help them, because it is easier to kill a man today than feed him tomorrow.
