The national deputy of the Front of All (FdT) Natalia Souto received a draft statement from the grouping Foot neighborhoods in which he expresses the repudiation of the expressions of the legislator Joseph Louis Espert on birth control to poor households. In journalistic statements, he stated that “the birth rate in poor neighborhoods should be controlled so that Argentina does not become a gigantic slum.”
The project against José Luis Espert
«The project highlights Espert’s sayings in relation to the fact that in the popular sectors they have children to collect social plans, and in this way criminals, rapists and murderers are raised. It is clearly an example of the class hatred that the deputy has for the sectorSouto said according to a statement he accessed Telam.
In addition, the deputy called for “joining efforts to move forward and prioritize the improvement of the quality of life of the popular sectors, who are the ones who have been going through the worst.” “Messages like this only contribute to creating more social divisions and generate hatred against a sector that has historically been stigmatized,” she stressed.
Last Tuesday, the group Somos Barrios de Pie called for the expulsion of deputy José Luis Espert (Avanza Libertad) from Congress, considering that his statements are “a sign of class hatred” after the legislator ruled on the need to put “a limit to the birth rate in poor households”. This was done in the framework of a rally that the group held in front of Congress with the aim of denouncing that Espert’s comments are “a show of class hatred.”
What did the deputy say?
“One cannot give an AUH for each child: up to two children we give you AUH, but not. It cannot be that one is subsidizing the increase in poverty,” Espert said on a news portal in Buenos Aires. And he added that “the growth rate of the population in marginal households is four to five times higher than that of the population of the middle and upper middle class.”
“This means that, if a limit is not placed on the birth rate in poor households, Argentina is going to be a gigantic slum in the coming years,” stressed the national legislator for the province of Buenos Aires. He then added that “some of the poor people want to have children to collect the plan, but another part has children because they don’t know how to take care of themselves, they don’t have birth control.”
