Aborting to save the planet.
Insert adjective here: Outrageous, stupid, absurd, ridiculous, flaky, wacko, nutty, insane, loopy, ludicrous.
Syndicated columnist Kathleen Parker gets right to the point in her column today on these nutjobs.
“If we're not saving the planet for our kids, for whom are we saving it? After we're all sterilized and aborted, who's going to appreciate the fact that global warming is, by golly, under control? Who's going to live to tell the tale? Tell me: When was the last time you read a good book by a polar bear? Human beings may unconsciously wish to maintain their genetic line, but that's not the reason most people have children. OK, most of us have children because we get pregnant. But otherwise, the planet -- glorious as it is -- is simply not that much fun with no one around.”
“Suddenly, the unborn is of no greater importance than the contents of our recycling bin. Like Weight Watchers dieters substituting carbs for sugars, we trade off future members of the human race to neutralize insults to Earth's balance in the present. Here's how the mental calculation goes: Let's see, if I abort my child, maybe I can travel first-class to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali.”
Here’s the entire Parker column.Save the earth….kill your baby.
If that’s being green, color me anything but.
