Another example of eugenics in Canada

Many people do not know that Canada has had a very long history with eugenics. The programs have run from the inception of our nation all the way up until current day.

A great example of this was the ethnic cleansing on the native people. When the Euro-christian elite who first came to this country in the 1800's, the eugenics programs began. A systematic plan of population reduction in the native communities.

These programs hit there high points between the 1920's and 1960's. When the native children were taken by force (some as young as 3 years old) to Indian residential schools, they were subjected to murder, rape, exposure of small pox and tuberculosis, and sterilization. It is said that 60% of the children who entered the schools did not come out.

The church (United church of Canada) who ran the schools has still not admitted to any wrong doing, but the Canadian government has given apologies and financial settlements to survivors and family members.

Many people do not know that Canada had forced sterilization programs that ran until the year 1979. The programs intended to prevent the reproduction and multiplication of members of the population considered to be carriers of defective genetic traits.
2800 people were sterilized, by force in the province of Alberta alone.

But this is just a black eye in Canadian history right? Wrong. Unknown to many, the eugenics programs continue to this very day. A great example of this is something called a fetal reduction or selective reduction.

The practice is promoted to be done to avoid the medical issues generally related to multiple births, including premature births, low birth weights, and associated medical problems. Selective reduction an also be used to reduce a twin pregnancy to a single one.

In other words if a woman is pregnant with an undesirable child, or a multiple pregnancy they can terminate (abortion) or reduce the number of babies they are going to have. The parents can decide to do this if the baby is not the desired sex, like what they do in China. And it is totally legal.

The doctors (not all) and the state play a large role in this. If the parents are in a lower class, have medical issues, or are disabled these kinds of programs are pushed onto them.

Eugenics in a "nice" way. They will not force it, but will throw so much propaganda at the parents, only the very strong willed will refuse.

A typical example of people accepting the tyranny. Accepting what should never be accepted. They are various other eugenics programs still in use in Canada, and they will be covered in the future.
