Yes, because our brains are what separate us from our brute ancestors. We're not apes, so let's not act like apes. By the way, I mean this literally; I'm not trying to make a racist comparison.
Stupidity is basically impulsive behavior with little or no thought.
Intelligence is controlled behavior with plenty of thought put into it.

I fully accepted that this topic would bring out some raw emotions. I totally feel for you. But please accept that I am a thinking, compassionate person. I absolutely HATE the idea that we have to even bring this topic up. But, how long can we go on with business as usual (birth as usual) when today's 'norm' is one stupid person poisoning the lives of SOOOO many people?
Do I have the answer? Hell NO! But, we'll never find the answer if we're too afraid to ask the hard questions.
Please note my statement in the original post: "I have to say that, at this time, if sterilization for the unfit were put on a ballot, I would vote for it."
When I say, 'at this time' I mean I am fully open to any suggestions, as long as the suggestion isn't: Close your eyes to the problem, leave well enough alone, don't rock the boat.
