    When Should Mandatory Abortions be implemented in the United States?

    Now that the elitist have convinced the American public to accept abortion as a morally reasonable thing to do, the next step is to implement mandatory abortions to those who are unfit to be parents. This was envisioned by Plato as a way to improve the quality of the human species much in the same way that cattle are bred to improve the heard.

    The question I have to ask is: When Should Mandatory Abortions be implemented in the United States?

    Below is a quote from Book V of Plato's Republic
    Unsolicited Commentary: Plato’s Republic: Book Five

    "The second wave regarded the communal rearing of children, closely linked to the breeding of the females by only the best men. Socrates was intent upon destroying any bond that might develop except the bonds of a person to their community. The greatest evil was that which caused factions (462b). To this end he erased the family from the lives of the guardians and auxiliaries. No marriages were to be allowed. The best warriors would be directed to mate periodically with the women and the children of those unions would be raised collectively. Not even the mother would know who her offspring were. Socrates goes so far as to insist that this is the most natural way for our best men and women to procreate and exist together. It is not unlike the fighting dogs or game cocks which Glaucon raises at his home 459a).

    It is hard to imagine how this relates to the soul of a human except that, perhaps, we should look closely at the relationships to which we cling. In this light, the argument that the offspring of unwarranted intercourse should be aborted is not quite so hideous."

    Re: When Should Mandatory Abortions be implemented in the United States?

    I think you missed a step somewhere..... like asking "if" mandatory abortion should be implemented or not.... you went right to "when"

    I'm quite certain it has it's fans among the pro-eugenics, pro-abortion crowd.... but I'm gonna say it has a snowballs chance in hell at happening within the next 100 years.

    it is my position that it should never happen... but you didn't have a poll option for that

    That's because this isn't a choice. Elitist are in charge and want to make America stronger. America has already accepted abortion as ok. The next step is mandatory abortions for unfit parents. When the unfit quit breeding this will improve the gene pool thus the quality of life for all. It wasn't my idea. This is a vision of the smartest people in our country. Plato envisioned a Republic that was ruled by the most intelligent class of people rather than the elected class which he despised. Unless you have the highest IQ in the country it doesn't matter what you think.

    I'm a meritocrat who believes in Platonic rule, and the concept of the philosopher-king was designed so that the enlightened class was designed to help people from self-destruction through benevolent choices unable to be seen by the general populace. He didn't have disdain for the common folk.

    Re: When Should Mandatory Abortions be implemented in the United States?

    In the past, the United States skipped that step and either encouraged birth control or mandated sterilization provided if you met certain ambiguous criteria.

    I'm not eager to go back to that policy. Even the most neo-eugenic of folks promote the notion that it needs to be more or less a case of moral suasion rather than an instituted policy.

    Noone has convinced the public that is is the "morally reasonable" thing to do. It is simply the LEGAL thing to do. Legality does not equate to moral by legality alone. All abortion being legal has done is ticked off those that want control over women and FORCE them to carry to term while enduring physical and mental changes to their bodies.

    Didn't vote in the poll because:

    #1 The premise is faulty
    #2 The choices are idiotic without having an option for "never".

    Enjoy!

    There is a reason it is called "pro choice."
    Anti abortion should be called "anti choice."
    mandated abortions would also be "anti choice."

    Alcohol is legal. Is there a mandatory beer anyone has to drink? Should pot ever be legalized, will we have to smoke it?

    The OP is totally absurd.

    North America had a sad history in the last century where the mentally ill and handicapped were often sterilized against their knowledge or will. I had thought, as a society, that we had advanced beyond that sad, despicable period, but maybe not.

    Re: When Should Mandatory Abortions be implemented in the United States?

    An abortion should be recommended when it's discovered that the couple is over 18, the pregnancy was intentional, and the child would end up calling the parents Aunt Mommy and Uncle Daddy ..

    .. And it should be mandatory in the highly likely event that either of the parents are in politics.

    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?
