Or how about the simple PILL??! OR. ..

. .getting one's tubes tied after having two children. That's not so hard and I've known plenty of women who have done it, including my own mother who had three children in the first 4 years of her marriage.

Spent 6 weeks in China, 11 years ago. All women of childbearing age who had one child, had their tubes tied. Big deal, folks.

Overpopulation is an existential threat to all life on the planet.

We can ignore that fact at our own risk. And if you do not believe this, you need to read more.

It's not about being able to afford more children, it is about "can the planet afford more children?"

"Population is growing rapidly, far outpacing the ability of our planet to support it, given current practices. Overpopulation is associated with negative environmental and economic outcomes ranging from the impacts of over-farming, deforestation, and water pollution to eutrophication and global warming."

He also said...

"If our solar system is not unusual, then there are so many planets in the universe that, for example, they outnumber the sum of all sounds and words ever uttered by every human who has ever lived. To declare that Earth must be the only planet with life in the universe would be inexcusably bigheaded of us."
- Neil deGrasse Tyson

Most humans are indeed bigheaded; after all, aren't we the only species in the universe that can achieve eternal life?!

Found link...



"The Network for Animals, a charity with offices in London and Oldsmar, Florida, is one group trying to help ADA foundation and other shelters to secure funds but the number of animals and their needs are great. The veterinarians are working day and night with little sleep."

Ever notice that the more traditionally religious

A person is, the less they're worried about life on the planet surviving mankind's pollution, plunder, and multiplying population.

One example of quotes used, as if they're a substitute for scientific facts:

"Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:

"I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you
and with every living creature that was with you--the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you--every living creature on earth.

I establish my covenant with you:

Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth."


Whew, we're saved!
