In a recent report which surfaced in Sweden, that nation discovered that Hitler’s legacy of madness lived on fully 35 years after the Second World War.
The report confirms that a social-engineering program mounted by the Swedish government in 1935 was inspired by Hitler’s eugenics program of the 1930s. Trouble is, it did not cease when Hitler disappeared. The Swedish government continued to administer sterilization to mostly women patients until 1975.
The criteria for sterilization adopted and continued by the post-war Swedish government embraced those classified as “racially mixed,” “gypsy,” and any young girls who were reported to government agencies for leading an “immoral life.” Among those sterilized against their will were women who had produced disabled children.
Many women had no idea they had been sterilized. On the other hand, the report indicates that thousands of others were sterilized by force. In all it appears that 63,000 Swedes were sterilized as a result of the program.
The report of involuntary sterilization contrasts markedly with the recently released British statistic verifying that 30 percent of British women under the age of 35 have had a voluntary abortion.
