The Daily Mail recently ran a piece about the growing trend of young women who are having abortions, and being sterilized in order to reduce their “carbon footprint”:
Had Toni Vernelli gone ahead with her pregnancy ten years ago, she would know at first hand what it is like to cradle her own baby, to have a pair of innocent eyes gazing up at her with unconditional love, to feel a little hand slipping into hers – and a voice calling her Mummy.
But the very thought makes her shudder with horror.
Because when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief she was helping to save the planet.
Incredibly, so determined was she that the terrible “mistake” of pregnancy should never happen again, that she begged the doctor who performed the abortion to sterilise her at the same time.
He refused, but Toni – who works for an environmental charity – “relentlessly hunted down a doctor who would perform the irreversible surgery.
Finally, eight years ago, Toni got her way.
Incredibly, instead of mourning the loss of a family that never was, her boyfriend (now husband) presented her with a congratulations card.
Now, you tell me? Should people like this procreate, anyway? Those of us who love, and value children are the ones who should be having them, and raising them.
While some might think it strange to celebrate the reversal of nature and denial of motherhood, Toni relishes her decision with an almost religious zeal.
“Having children is selfish. It’s all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet,” says Toni, 35.
The temperature of the planet may rise a degree or two in the coming decades, so she thinks it’s her duty destroy any chance she has of bringing life into the world?
There’s no vocation more natural and fulfilling to a woman, than motherhood, unless you’re a moonbat. Then it’s an anathema to everything you find holy. People are the enemy of Gaia. Babies are baaaad polluters.
Toni’s not alone. There are tons of women just like her…the article goes on to chronicle another ‘childless to save the planet’ couple. You can multiply these couples by thousands, I’ll bet; perhaps hundreds of thousands of couples…lefty moonbat couples who are not having children to save the earth.
When I put my Political Pundit Hat on, I say, “That’s a good thing!”
But my Catholic Conscience says, “What a terrible waste.”
