Groningen U Slogan Should Be “We Kill Babies”

Doctors at the Groningen University Medical Center commit infanticide. 

If a baby is born with serious disabilities–and the death doctors conclude they will have an “unlivable life”–the baby’s fate is often to be on the receiving end of a lethal injection.

Doctors there even created a how-to-decide-which-babies-to-kill bureaucratic checklist known as the Groningen Protocol

That is why I had to chuckle (bitterly) when a reader sent me a story about how the university’s official slogan has been voted worst in Netherlands. From the DutchNews.nl story:

Groningen University’s slogan ‘Born leaders reach for infinity’ has been voted most stupid university catch phrase in the country in an online poll…

In the meantime, according to the Parool, Groningen has a new slogan ‘Think Bold’ which as several people have already pointed out, is not correct English.

I think official school slogans should be truthful. Thus, I suggest the following: Groningen University: “Where Disabled Babies Are Sent Into Eternity.”

Nah: Too clunky. Best in these kind of things to be simple and to the point: “We kill babies.”
