Leftist support for tyranny...

...and China's One Child Policy.

But I repeat myself.

This is from the New York Times circa 2014.  Read this and not the amazing thing about the explanation provided for why forced abortions/sterilization is a "touchy" policy does NOT include the fact that controlling human beings' decisions about their families is absolute totalitarian tyranny.

//In the 1970s and 1980s, rich nations’ support for population control in poor countries smacked of just another form of colonialism. Coercive population control — like India’s forced sterilizations, which were abandoned after they led to the collapse of Indira Gandhi’s government in 1977, or China’s one-child policy, which remains in place — is now widely considered a blatant violation of human rights.

Even China’s one-child policy is undergoing re-examination in Beijing because of the skewing of the country’s sex ratio — countless pregnancies have been aborted and millions of girls have been killed or left to die by parents who had hoped for a boy — and the tearing of the traditional safety net from so many elderly Chinese being forced to rely on only one child for support. Economists at the International Monetary Fund have even welcomed Africa’s fast-rising population as an opportunity to increase its pace of economic growth.//
