I think Japan needs a new health minister.
71-year old Hakuo Yanagisawa, who currently holds this post, said the following in a speech on health and welfare today:
The number of women aged between 15 and 50 is fixed. Because the number
of birth-giving machines and devices is fixed, all we can ask for is
for them to do their best per head, although it may not be so
appropriate to call them machines.
Interesting…I was not aware that my main purpose as a Japanese woman was to give birth. He must be very disappointed in me and all the other childless females out here. Sorry, dude.
