"Across a crowded street, two people with 'God Is Pro-Life!' signs and pictures of torn-up fetuses managed to drive the blade in even deeper. Again, I was left trying to console the inconsolable, feeling even more helpless this time, because I wasn’t allowed into surgery with her.
Running on pure adrenaline, and without even a hint of a plan, I grabbed my cell phone and crossed the street. I didn’t know what to say or how to say it, I just knew I wanted to make public the cowardice of these protesters. The video’s below—they didn’t disappoint."
Overpopulation is the herd of elephants in the room. It really is. It's the major factor behind global warming, pollution, poverty and all manner of human and planetary ills. We have to stop breeding so fucking much. No, we really, really do. We have to stop presenting the holy nuclear family and the sanctified 2.4 sprogs as natural and righteous and decent. We have to start resisting the knee-jerk assumption that reproduction is a human "right"; is the thing "normal" people should aspire to; is the goddamned be-all and end-all of the average human life.
If we do not start doing this voluntarily, it will have to be enforced, at some point. No, don't sneer and snark, think. It will. If we do not voluntarily curb our dumb biological urge to push an infinite number of infants out of our dumb, greedy genitalia, then we will have to have it enforced. Really. Nine billion people. Nine billion people, most of whom think they have some goddamned right to inflict their precious 2.4 infants on the world. Do the math. We either choose to adjust our paradigm our we will have to have that adjustment forced upon us.
> Go to their homes. Scream at their children. Shame them in public. Make them know that the world has no love in it for them.
