Well, I know that we in America are trying hard to emulate Europe these days. So, wouldn’t you know it that the chair of Britain’s Sustainable Development Commission, Jonathon Porritt, has decided that those who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” stewards of the earth and are causing global warming. What is Mr. Porritt’s solution? You can read it here, or I can tell you: Mr. Porritt’s solution is that we need more contraception and abortion. Mr. Porritt wants to shift British public funds from curing illnesses to killing babies.
And, of course, the countries with the highest birthrates in the world are the developing nations of Africa. Thus, our simple conclusion is that Mr. Porritt, just as in the case of our very own Mexico City Policy, thinks that taxpayers should be supporting the killing of children in poor foreign countries. And, I believe that if such government policies are allowed to take place around the world, it will only be a matter of time until they or similar ones come home to us. Just as with China’s one-child policy, we may see a policy in our own lifetimes where the government tries to limit our ability to freely choose the amount of children we can have.
