TheGroundTruthProject: Women in India are offered incentives to encourage sterilization for population control
Canada's Eugenics Program
Sterilization of Indigenous Women ...
and the difference between "encouraged" and "coerced".
In India, a variety of birth control methods are often unavailable, but women are nevertheless encouraged to limit their families due to obvious overpopulation, and often the only choice available is surgical sterilization. Various incentives, however, are offered in order to encourage compliance, and they have worked to the point of greatly slowing India's population growth.
Canada is a vast country with no overpopulation problem. But there is a Eugenics program and a law allowing the forced sterilization of young Indigenous women. If you do a general search for forced sterilization in Canada, you will get the impression that it's all in the distant past.
But it's not. And, to encourage co-operation, some are told they can't see their newborn baby without first submitting to sterilization. See: Compulsory Sterilization in Canada
But our ever-so-politically-correct-leftie Prime Minister Trudeau is not at all interested in changing the law that allows this to happen, despite having bravely criticized Saudi Arabia for its treatment of women.
Hands up, you Canadians who knew that our Native women were being coerced into involuntary sterilization? My hand is not up and I'm extremely perturbed that we have to be censured by a UN committee on torture!
Just a while ago I wrote a post about the dubious doings of the RCMP and later tacked on an addendum that went like this:
It occurred to me even later that the reason no progress has ever been made in solving this horrific situation might be that somebody with the power to make it happen and keep it covered up is convinced that it's necessary to keep the Aboriginal population to a minimum, and that fewer young women means fewer babies born. Now, I'm thinking I may well have thought correctly.
But where was my brain in all the years before now that I didn't know my country was actually practising eugenics in the same manner as the Nazis did in Germany!
I knew there was a eugenics office (lab?) in Ottawa -- it gave me a bit of a chill as I passed by it on my way home from the library -- but I convinced myself that in this day and age it was probably just a research facility, something to do with disease prediction and prevention. It's all the rage nowadays for people to want to know their DNA structure; some even have their breasts lopped off because their genes indicate susceptibility to breast cancer.
If I, a strongly critical thinker, kept myself blind to certain possibilities, how much more benighted are people who live in the bubble of TV News and the lives of the beautiful, rich and famous?
Wikipedia spells out pretty clearly the activities of Canada's Eugenics Board (bolding mine):
So, having a sense of humanity is a weakness, and those who lack it are doing us all a favour. Yet we were encouraged to point the finger at the other Adolf as being the worst kind of demon for wanting Germany to be peopled by a "pure race".
Canada is known around the world - ask a Canadian who has visited a foreign country and sat at dinner with some of its citizens - for our callous treatment of our Native peoples, yet it's the last thing on the minds of most of us.
How superior can a citizen possibly be who imagines there is anyone remotely worth voting for in this callous country described as "the true North strong and free" except maybe the lesser of a bad lot of self-serving smooth-talking narcissists?
