Re: "Irresponsible" for having more than 2 children

it's no one's business but mine & my DHs how many kids we choose to have. if i want to have a dozen...i will. if i want to stop at 3....i will. as for connecting people to their responsibility, i teach my kids responsibility every day....we recycle....we shop at thrift stores...we don't make needless trips to the store. that's where the biggest environmental impact is going to show. not by encouraging couples to use contraception or abortion as crowd control.

Re: "Irresponsible" for having more than 2 children

Well, there are people who believe that way.

However, that statement makes me sick. And the fact that he said ABORTION is at the HEART of this plan to curb population growth. He is talking about passing POLICIES!!!

If they try to make a policy to force women to abort or be sterilized I will be standing in the streets screaming my loudest in protest. The thought makes me sick.

Seriously makes me wanna have a bunch more kids.

One last thought, what kinda car does he drive and how big is his house?

Oh, in reading further it looks like this guy is from the UK, not the US. So I highly doubt his comments have any bearing on US policy. Although I am sure he hopes they will.

Re: "Irresponsible" for having more than 2 children

when people start talking about population control I get an uneasy feeling in my stomach.... We all have to be aware of how we effect the earth but we don't want to end up like china either

Well, when h3ll freezes over, and it's becomes illegal, there will be "underground" birth centers for the rest of us to continue having babies.

Re: "Irresponsible" for having more than 2 children

Well, I happen to think that stupid humans should stop procreating and more intelligent people who actually care about the planet should have as many babies as they want

But seriously, I know in Canada (not sure about the rest of the world, but I know there are many other countries in similar circumstances) the birth rate is lower than the death rate (ie. we're losing population over the years). So, I really don't understand the logic behind this type of argument.

I think global warming is a big joke. I think it's a political scam to get our money and make us communist. I don't want to fill my landfills either, but come on! It's been the coldest here in Iowa in decades. Seems like we should worry about global freezing!

Are you serious? Do you really not "believe" in global warming?
