Birth Defects Rise as Immigrant Cousin Marriage Rates Increase in UK

Importing the Third World Part II: Birth Defects Rise as Immigrant Cousin Marriage Rates Increase

London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has confirmed that there is a dramatic rise in genetic birth defects in Britain which has resulted from the rise in first cousin marriages amongst masses of Third World immigrants.
The hospital, one of Britain’s most famous paediatric institutions, said it was preparing to treat more children born blind or deaf and with genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anaemia as a result of the rise in the immigrant population.
The hospital’s recently released annual plan said that “growing numbers of people from Asian countries such as Pakistan, where marriages between first cousins are more common, were expected to settle here” and that this was the reason for the increased rate of birth defects.
“Increasing immigration, accompanied with the increasing incidence of first cousin marriages in the UK, will lead to a greater level of serious congenital abnormalities which require treatment from specialist centres such as GOSH.”
The report coincides with a television documentary to be broadcast on Channel 4 which deals with the topic.
According to figures revealed in that show, 50 percent of Pakistani immigrants in Britain marry their cousins.
In Bradford, 75 percent of Pakistani immigrants marry their cousins and, the documentary continues, “such relationships are also common in East African, Middle Eastern and Bangladeshi communities.”
Other figures in the programme revealed that a third of all children born in Britain today have a rare recessive genetic disease which comes from the Pakistani immigrant community.
Children born from first cousin marriages suffer genetic disorders, higher rates of infant mortality, birth defects, learning difficulties, blindness, hearing problems and metabolic disorders.
As adults these children are at an increased risk of miscarriage or infertility, while a third of children affected die before their fifth birthday.
The investigation by Channel 4 found that even though more than 70 British studies have proved the risks, many people are still denying the dangers, and first cousin marriages continue to rise.
Other statistics have shown that forced, or arranged marriages, are in 92 percent of cases between cousins. This practice has not decreased with each passing generation, exposing the claim of “integration as a solution” to be a lie.
Mass immigration has therefore not only imported Third World practices, but has also burdened the taxpayer through the medical costs it has incurred.
