MP apologises for saying unemployed should be sterilised http://dlvr.it/QBVtqh
A Tory, naturally. Still the “Nasty Party” then.
What is it with fascists and eugenics?
The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, European Constitution and Treaty of Lisbon provide a framework that specifically outlaws eugenics.
p.s. Here an old article in the Torygraph from 2004 that tries to make an argument against the EU and for eugenics: EU law on eugenics attacks our freedom http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/3321686/EU-law-on-eugenics-attacks-our-freedom.html even though the EU treaties have exceptions for medical and scientific purposes. But they don’t extend to designer babies. And of course national laws might be more restrictive, and often are.
