Bill Bennett versus black babies

Former Education Secretary and current Republican cheerleader Bill Bennett has said, "But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down."

Bennett says that his whole point was that you can't justify abortion by pointing out its practical benefits. But saying that skin color is the source of crime is, well, not virtuous, to say the least.

I wonder if he's going to cover eugenics in the next update of The Book of Virtues?

Read all about Bennett's squirming here.
