Letter: Your cartoonist had a point

00:00, May 17 2012

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.
