We’re living in an era when the absolute worst is coming out in individuals. A professor at Yale University is well versed regarding the potential demographic disaster befalling his native country of Japan. Abortion on demand has put them in a precarious position of having too many senior citizens and not enough young workers. This professor’s suggestion will shock you. During a media interview he stated the solution is “mass suicide and mass seppuku of the elderly.” Seppuku is the traditional ritual of death by falling on a large sword. The professor also advocates the “possibility of making [euthanasia] mandatory in the future.” Voices of compassion and justice were heard. One saying it’s words of “hatred toward the vulnerable.” Seriously Yale, you couldn’t do better?
