Reduce Crime, Abort Babies

Former Education Secretary Bill Bennett recently said something stupid. But that's not unusual for Bennett who is also the author of The Book of Virtues. Despite writing that book he later was found to be a high stakes gambler in casinos around the country. I'm not sure if gambling is a virtue, but it must be to Bennett. His recent remarks are way up there in the stupid zone.

In answering a callers question on his "Morning in America" radio show he didn't agree with an hypothesis of a recent book about lowered crimes rate to higher abortion rates.

He said, "But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, abd your crime rate would go down."

He did add, "it's an impossible, rediculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky."

I'll say, tricky is right. I think the tricky part for Bennett is how not to say stupid things. But maybe he is on to something.

To reduce white collar crime, executive scandals and such, we could abort babies of Ivy League business school graduates.

To reduce terrorism we could abort Arab babies.

To reduce future hate crimes we could identify trucks by the type of bumper stickers they have, such as confederate flag, or "fags die" and make the owner's wife have abortions.

To reduce abortions (in case abortions become a crime) we could abort babies of women likely to give birth to future women that are likely to have abortions. I'm sure they could come up with some type of ratio statistic to zero in on those type of women. Abort them before they abort others.

And we could reduce crime down to nearly zero by aborting all babies. We can kill off the human race so that it stops criminal activity. This might be the best idea. Abort all humans and humanity will be crime-free. Crimes against the earth (man-made pollution) will cease as well.

Of course my ideas are as stupid as Bennett's. He didn't think other races besides African-Americans apparently commit crimes to consider aborting them. Maybe Bennett is like George Bush, he don't care about black people.
