Trash Palace a community treasure Preserve rare green space We'd be better off with cannabis Trying to kick legal highs out No excusing low refugee intake Medicated youth a bleak trend Housing accord could mean headaches Good time to consider trans-Tasman dollar Punishing rowers going overboard New decile ranking method offered

OPINION: Yes, Monday's Josef Mengele- Paula Bennett cartoon was pretty rough (Letters, May 15). So, of course, is the Government's notice to beneficiaries that it doesn't want their children. The eugenics and population-control road we are now on is the same as that taken by other totalitarian governments such as those in China and Nazi Germany.

We should note that Dr Mengele didn't break any of his nation's laws. Some laws are inherently wrong because they're unethical. It's not ethical for our Government to single out any group of citizens and suggest they shouldn't have more children.
