North Korea Kills Disabled Infants


I knew it! According to the Sunday Times (London), North Korea kills disabled infants and has a virulent eugenics policy. "The latest description of Kim Jong-il's policy of state eugenics came from a North Korean doctor," A story in the Times states, "Ri Kwang-chol, who escaped last year and told a forum in Seoul that babies with deformities were killed soon after birth. 'There are no people with physical defects in North Korea,' Ri said. Such babies were put to death by medical staff and buried quickly, he claimed. He denied ever committing the act himself."

Gruesome details in the story depict the most vicious murders of helpless babies. It is an awful read.

The world once promised, "Never again!" But, it didn't really mean it. It would rather be comfortable than do the right thing. For shame!
