The Welfare Working Group wants to get poor women to breed less by offering them free long-term contraception. Jeez, I know this is all an exercise in proposing extreme options along with less extreme ones to make the less extreme ones appear moderate when the government adopts them but eugenics? Seriously?
Offering free contraception to all, I would support. But targeting one ‘undesirable’ strata of society because, by virtue of taking a benefit, they are a ‘drain’ on society? That’s one step back from forced sterilisations. Has the right reverted 80 years?
