After a global nuclear war, most modern civilizations and technology were destroyed. And for reasons unknown, portions of humanity became mutant freaks, either from radiation or some sort of...genetic thing? That doesn’t really matter.
What does matter is that mutantism is embedded in humans genetic code. Every generation, there will always be a child born with all sorts of freaky mutations: neurological problems that make them insane, discolored skin, multiple limbs.
Mutantism has become a recessive trait, like having red hair, and if two people with the gene mate, they will create mutant offspring. Most mutants are a danger to mankind, as they are often mentally challenged, violently insane, and psychotic.
They can’t simply be killed, as the Pope and other religious figures have said that mutants are technically human, and women can not simply have abortions, as technology has been pushed back to the late 1600s, so my question is: how could the wastelanders deal with the mutants humanely? Humanely means no killing or shoving into prison or workhouses.
