You selfish and immoral people! Given the grim seriousness of Climbit Change, how dare you have a baby? You carbon footprint, you! Gyaaaaah….! [Collapses with pink foam oozing from ears. Funny: we thought that space in there was vacant.]
Yes, now the Climbit Change wackos have got a Big Professor of Bioethics to do their shouting for them, and he’s got his knickers in a twist over “the moral aspect”–like any of these guys would recognize morality if it bit ’em in the ass–of having babies in this age of we’re-all-gonna-die Global Warming blah-blah (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/11/17/bioethicist-opinion-science-proves-kids-are-bad-for-earth-morality-suggests-we-stop-having-them/). ‘Cause, ya see, children contribute to Climbit Change.
He doesn’t quite come out and say, like, immediately completely stop having babies waddayou, crazy–! He just wants us to have a lot fewer offspring. Does that mean he wants us to go extinct slowly, instead of in just another generation? He actually likens having a child to releasing a murderer from prison, “knowing he will kill again.” Liberals do that all the time, of course, and it doesn’t bother them a bit. They like murderers. Murder reduces that ol’ carbon footprint. Anyway, says the Big Professor, stop having those confounded babies!
Where was this great advice when his mother needed it?
In his novel, That Hideous Strength, C.S. Lewis described an all-powerful scientific consortium whose ultimate goal is to scour the planet clean of life, so it will be “pure.” Their scheme is inspired by Satan. C.S. Lewis never heard of George Soros.
Anyway, did he hit the nail right on the head, or what?
