The Null Device
In the latest surprising development, Australia's authoritarian-moralist
prime minister John "The Beast" Howard has put forward plans to
roll back the Sex Discrimination Act, restricting IVF treatment to
. The Beast claims that children have a right to
be born into a traditional heterosexual family. Why not extend it further
and ban non-church-going couples from having IVF treatment? After all,
shouldn't children in Howard's Menzies-retro utopia have a right to a good,
moral, Christian upbringing, rather than being brainwashed with permissiveness
and SEXular humanism? Perhaps Howard should bring back the traditional
Australian policy of taking children away from their parents and putting them
in more traditional homes; only rather than just targeting Aborigines,
extending it to target all who disagree with Howard's vision of moral purity.
