The Jaffe Memo, Ginsburg, Harris v. McRae, and Population Control – PART 5

In my first post, I showed how the beliefs of the Nazis and the eugenicists are disturbingly similar to viewpoints of some modern liberals.  I gave three examples;  I could have given three hundred.  The Jaffe Memo shows that ‘population control’ is central to the the progressive outlook on the world.  It is an aspect of their ‘religion.’  As progressives have flooded into the government over the last sixty years, the moral (!) righteousness of population control has become institutionalized.
