Re: Slota: State should pay Roma to be sterilised, By Lukáš Fila, March 3 - 10, Vol 9, No 8
It's so unfortunate that relations between ethnic Slavs and Roma in Slovakia have reached this level of bitterness and distrust. It strikes me that this is a very complex problem with no easy solutions. A more tolerant and open-minded attitude on both sides can't hurt. A cycle of poverty and illiteracy is just not an acceptable option. I agree with the suggestion that sterilisation offered to anyone who requests it, regardless of ethnic origin, is a viable alternative. Sterilisation has very negative connotations but, after all, vasectomies and tubiligation are quite common as legitimate forms of birth control in many countries.
