A City of Helsinki deputy councilor has come under fire after he publicly stated in a Facebook post that African men who come to Finland as refugees should not be allowed to have more than three children, and should be sterilized instead.
According to Olli Sademies, 67, the problem with African immigrants is that they have too many children. So forced sterilization is the way to tackle it, he suggested.
“Migrants put to the test our social security,” Sademies wrote. “Africa’s social security is based on a large number of children, which enables some children to live longer and take care of their parents.”
In order “to avoid total collapse” of a similar system in Finland, African refugees should be restricted, Sademies said. “Three children maximum. It would require the forced sterilization of African men, which will effectively discourage them from trundling into our country,” he wrapped up.
