Reader feedback: Equal-opportunity sterilisation

Re: Slota: State should pay Roma to be sterilised, By Lukáš Fila, March 3 - 10, Vol 9, No 8

Slota's proposal, if interpreted correctly, is unprofessional. To make it acceptable requires deleting references to the Roma. Everyone, without regard to race, religion, or creed should have the opportunity to apply for the sterilisation payment. In conjunction with the above proposal, support payments for children should be eliminated. Instead, tax breaks should be given to taxpayers with children. Finally, employees of all the good-for-nothing branches of foreign charities should be sent back to where they came from. Let them contribute to the population problems in their own countries, not ours.
