One can only wonder why the media has not picked this up? Will the upcoming House hearing with Gruber address this opinion by him? They sure laughed at us when we talked about the Death Panels which we now know are indeed true. Unelected individuals will decide the quantity and quality of our lives. Welcome to Progressive thinking. The paper written in such a detached method can only remind us of the Nazi regime. Here we go: UPDATE: Questioned during hearing today:
Embattled MIT professor Jonathan Gruber has not only gotten in trouble for bragging about helping President Obama put one over on the American people with Obamacare, he’s also been uncovered as an abortion advocate—but not a run-of-the-mill advocate of “women’s rights.”
No, Gruber’s abortion advocacy is of a particularly pungent eugenics variety. He’s on record repeatedly making the case from social science that abortion is a “social good” because it reduces the number of “marginal children,” by which he means urban poor—those he says can be counted on to commit crimes if they were ever born.
Gruber co-authored a paper during the Clinton years which argued that legal abortion had saved the U.S. taxpayer upwards of $14 billion in welfare benefits and that it also lowered crime.
