“The mother of the year should be a sterilized woman with two adopted children,” according to Paul R. Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb. His theory that the human race was on the brink of disaster due to over-population was debunked by reality and the dismal sub-replacement rate in most of the developed world.

It wasn’t the first or only time our betters found a reason to counsel their lessers not to have children. Today, the reason is the climate “emergency” and a week doesn’t go by without another woman stating she has joined the Birthstrike due to it.

(...)Today, it’s the climate emergency. Our betters have decided we need to be roused from our slumber. We need to be frightened about our very existence yet again. Our betters have decided they need to rouse us from our slumber with the word “emergency.”

But the exquisitely designed body of a woman comes with its biological limits. Women and men alike can attest to the difficulties and expenses of putting off conception.
