LaBruzzo’s Plan Would Pay Poor Women To Be Sterilized

State Representative Says Plan Would Fight Poverty

NEW ORLEANS — A suburban New Orleans legislator is revisiting the controversial idea of paying poor women to undergo sterilization.

State Rep. John LaBruzzo told New Orleans Citybusiness, in an article published this week, that the program he is thinking about would be voluntary. It would pay poor women $1,000 to have their fallopian tubes tied.

“I’ve got a stack of e-mails for and against,” LaBruzzo said. “Two-to-one in favor of something being done.”

LaBruzzo, a Metairie Republican, said the plan could slow the growth of welfare rolls.

“It could be tubal ligation, IUD,” LaBruzzo said. “It would be more coast-effective than having three to four kids. It would be more cost-effective for them.”

Labruzzo said he’s not sure exactly how much the state spends on welfare each year. He requested that information from Baton Rouge, but he said he’s sure the dollar amount is rising.

The poor are so evil they must be stopped from procreating!


Obviously wiping out the poor is a superior solution to ascertaining and correcting the causes of poverty.

I look forward to a superior solution to ascertaining and correcting the causes of extreme wealth.

That solution was fairly close at hand until the US Congress voted today to spend $700bn to refund rich folks’ gambling losses. For a minute there, it looked like the US govt was going to let rich people become poor or something fully inconceivable like that.

Gotta save the bankers!
