Eliminate the Poor

See this article, Clinton Pushed RU-486 in First Official Act, Report Shows:
( - Before being sworn in as president, Democrat Bill Clinton was told that he should "start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of the country." Clinton received the advice in a letter from an advocate for the abortion drug regimen RU-486, which the president promoted during his first official act in the White House, according to a new report.
This letter, written by the former husband of the pro-abortion attorney who argued Roe v. Wade, included:
"Our survival depends upon our developing a population where everyone contributes," he wrote. "We don't need more cannon fodder. We don't need more parishioners. We don't need more cheap labor. We don't need more babies."
We don't need more parishoners? Parishoners? And who goes to a parish? Hm.

"Our survival depends upon our developing a population where everyone contributes". How does the writer define "contribute"? it seems that in contemporary America you only "contribute" if you get a college education, earn a high wage, pay a large marginal tax rate, and buy the most expensive home that you can afford.

When ordered to turn over the wealth of the Church to the Roman Empire, St. Lawrence gathered the poor and sick, who were the true wealth of the Church.

Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, encouraged sterilization and abortion of the "human weeds" of society, which included the Irish, Italians, and Jews. All of these groups were very poor in the first part of the 20th century, but they managed to enter the middle class within a generation. Sanger hated charity and did not understand its purpose.

Traditionally, men have cultivated virtue in order to conform the soul to reality. Since the Renaissance, men have sought to conform reality to the desires of the soul via technology. Poverty is a problem and should be solved, but by what means? We should cultivate the man instead of controlling his nature.
