By now, you may have heard of Charleston, SC, city councilman Larry Shirley. He recently advocated sterilization for parents who can't take care of their kids:

"What we've got is a failure in society" [...]

"We pick up stray animals and spay them. These mothers need to be spayed if they can't take care of theirs. ... Once they have a child and it's running the streets, to let them continue to have children is totally unacceptable."

Good luck with that, Larry!

Now (of course) he says he was just trying to "start the dialogue." Let's imagine that dialogue, shall we?

INT. City Hall. Council meeting. NIGHT.

Larry Shirley: Let's spay negligent mothers!

Everyone in the country: You're crazy!
