Just-appointed schools chancellor Cathie Black is quoted as having said, "Could we just have some birth control for a while?" in response to questions about school overcrowding.
School overcrowding has been a persistent New York City problem for decades, as the city continues to be beset by a growing school-age population and shifting demographics.
This gaffe comes on the heels of
- a recently-announced pilot program for organ preservation (or "organ harvesting") providing for a second ambulance to respond to cardiac arrest 911 calls in case the patient does not survive,
- the recent report last week that approximately 39 percent of New York City pregnancies end in abortion; and
- an atrocious City response to street cleaning and providing other essential sanitation and public safety services, which response was so poor it has sparked a federal criminal investigation.
