Liberals like to describe themselves as the most compassionate ones, the ones that believe like Hubert Humphrey did that the moral test of a society is how it treats its vulnerable citizens in the dawn and the twilight of life. That's not the party line at the Daily Kos.

Jon Stafford bluntly wrote on Wednesday night that "I often describe myself as 'Not Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion.  There are too many goddam people already.' And while this is meant to be facetious, nevertheless there is a seed of truth in it, because I believe that the world is wildly overpopulated and that we must take steps as a society to reduce it.  This will undoubtedly be met with accusations of callousness, but we could really use is a global superplague.  The Black Death may have been horrible, but without it there would never have been a Renaissance."
