    I agree. Most of my GED students were poor and some disabled, but they were more able than most people think. They were good parents and most went on to college. Many became RNs, nurse practitioners. Engineering techs. The most disabled - IT tech.

    I agree that the sterilization of the poor and disabled is unacceptable and a mentally twisted concept. It is exactly the old eugenics, plus a sort of genocide to eliminate certain groups of people.

    I did not know about Puerto Rico. Thanks for all the info. I wish eugenics were illegal and that law enforced.
