Unfit and Unwanted

Guest Author - Dountonia S. Slack

Jesus said, “You will always have the poor among you” (Matthew 26:11a NLT). But, maybe there is a way we can help curtail the poor epidemic. Isn’t it a good idea to offer incentives to poor men and women to get sterilized to prevent them from having children that tax-payers will ultimately end up paying for? Unfit mothers are having unwanted children everyday, why not do something to encourage them to stop having babies? And, let’s offer the wealthy, college-educated mothers to have more children as we limit/stop the uneducated poor from procreating. After all, it’s voluntary, no one would highjack these people to sterilize them. We’ll just take advantage of their desperation for money because that’s all they want/need anyway.

Our Sovereign God does not make mistakes. Even when we make mistakes or make a mess out of our lives, His plan and purpose will always be fulfilled in His time on His terms. Yes, there is overpopulation, children born to parents who do not want them or are unable to afford them, and some children are born with genetic defects that affect their developmental or mental growth. But, we are to “Open [our mouths] for the dumb, for the rights of all the unfortunate. Open [our mouths], judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy” (Proverbs 31:8).

It is easy to see the shortcomings of the poor. They wear their poorness openly. We draw many conclusions about them – they are unintelligent, lazy, unmotivated, deserving of whatever happens to them, unfit for society, and their situation is probably their fault. Today, to stop this travesty there are those who consider “controlling poverty” by paying poor women to choose sterilization so that they stop breeding more of a tax burden for the non-poor.

Even Darwin argued “that biologically inferior people threaten to deprive intellectually superior people of food and resources [which] established a scientific-sounding rationale for genocide, which is used today by the abortion-based population control and family planning establishments, as well as others bent to this day on improving the race by laboratory methods” (Rebecca Messall – The Evolution of Genocide). But the Bible says, "Woe to those who enact evil statutes, and to those who continually record unjust decisions, so as to deprive the needy of justice, and rob the poor of My people of their rights... Now what will you do in the day of punishment, and in the devastation which will come from afar?" (Isaiah 10:1-3)

God is concerned about the poor. We are commanded to take care of the poor. Our attitude about the poor must change in order to get in alignment with Biblical mandates. It is clear in Proverbs 14:31 that what we do to the poor we do to God – “He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, but he who is gracious to the needy honors Him.” A person, church, or a nation that believes it can rid the world of poverty through the injustice of voluntary sterilization is far from the Spirit of God.

“Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and yet we have everything” (2 Corinthians 6:10). The unwanted, burden to the mother of multiple children could be the blessing a married couple that cannot have children has long been waiting for. Every life has a purpose no matter how small or grand the impact on humanity that life has.
