Government Should Dictate Family Size?

Green Guru: Two children should be limit


by Sarah-Kate Templeton, Health Editor, Sunday Times, London   2.1.09

COUPLES who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” by creating an unbearable burden on the environment, the government’s green adviser has warned.

Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming. He says political leaders and green campaigners should stop dodging the issue of environmental harm caused by an expanding population.

A report by the commission, to be published next month, will say that governments must reduce population growth through better family planning.

“I am unapologetic about asking people to connect up their own responsibility for their total environmental footprint and how they decide to procreate and how many children they think are appropriate,” Porritt said.


Editorial reaction by Allan Erickson

When we challenged the presupposition that global warming was man-made, we were called anti-scientific, bone-headed, ignorant, uninformed:  the debate is over declared Al Gore; man-made global warming is FACT.   Then recently we read about 650 scientists attending a symposium in Poland, all of them challenging the notion global warming is mostly a man-made phenomenon.   In fact growing numbers of climatologists and others with advanced degrees are saying global warming itself is questionable, and even if it does exist to some degree (so to speak) there is nothing mere human intervention can accomplish. 

When we sounded the alarm that global warming was being used as a weapon to give government power to engage social engineering and centralize our economy, we were called conspiracy theorists, paranoid, conservative nutjobs, and alarmists.

For 36 years we warned people about the evils of abortion and sexual promiscuity, noting the destruction of the nuclear family, and the threat  posed to everyone if the most vulnerable among us are denied even the right to life.  We warned that abortion diminishes everyone, and gives government the right, eventually, to determine who lives and who dies, leaving the disabled and the elderly at risk.   We were called anti-woman, anti-modern, reactionary, religious fundamentalists, and morality fanatics.

We challenged the idea that population increases were a threat to human existence, and demonstrated that the earth can and does sustain much more than much of the scientific community acknowledges.  Respected economists demonstrated that population growth is good economic policy, even essential to economic health.  We were branded fools, self-centered and provincial. 

Now, it appears it is all coming home to roost.

The tyranny of the Left, in the form of the so-called Green Revolution, is working overtime, not only to leverage the hoax of global warming to fashion a centralized socialist state, but also to exert massive federal control, even to the point of telling husbands and wives how many children we can have, dubbing those who have more than two, “irresponsible.”   The next step is naming such parents environmental criminals. 

Next you will  hear how church people, Christians especially, and those who support traditional morality, are barriers to progress and global healing.   Once the forces of CONTROL successfully convince substantial majorities of these ‘truths,’ kiss the free exercise clause good bye.

In the 90s, push came to shove.  Now the Alinskyites led by Obama and his minions, are taking this entire agenda from shove to punch, and beyond.

As Americans, if we put up with this lunacy much longer, we’ll forfeit all our liberty and be forced to bow in complete surrender as government agents rundown women in the night to perform forced abortions.    You will be told where to work, how far you can travel, what size house you can live in, what you can eat, what you can wear.

You think it can’t happen here?

That’s what all of Europe thought in 1938.  In six years, the entire world would be engulfed in flame.  World war would claim the lives of 48 million souls.

In America, in the last 36 years, we have aborted, killed, murdered 50 million children who might otherwise live among us working, and contributing to the betterment of humankind.

We will never know what they might have contributed had they been allowed to live.

“A government big enough to give you everything you need is strong enough to take everything you have.”

“Indeed,” she wrote, “Muslims are outbreeding non-Muslims throughout Europe.”

Before writing off her recitation of the facts as an ugly example of Western hegemony or racism, consider that in 2007 a Norwegian imam gloatingly noted that in Europe “the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes. Every Western woman in the EU is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries is producing 3.5 children. Our way of thinking will prove more powerful than yours.”

Islam already dominates Europe

    How many of tens of millions of children have died from starvation, preventable disease, drinking dirty water, and collateral damage caused by American explosives?

    We will never know what they may have contributed if they had lived.

    People who are opposed to abortion should adopt a few of the children who have no home, who have no school, who have no doctor, who have no love. Then they should donate so much money to feed other children, so that they are trying to feed, educate and love the children they have adopted while working at a minimum wage job and living in a trailer. And they should live near a super dump so they can never be sure what is in the soil of the land their children play on.

    People who oppose abortion should also weep for the 25% of all fertilized eggs which are aborted naturally.

    After that it would help if anyone who comments on abortion be a woman who has borne and raised children which they didn’t have the time for or the money and whose fathers were absent, drunk or abusive.

    China has a one child policy which has made it possible for the government to raise the Chinese out of the condition of chronic famine into a population which is educated and fed. Given that China could drive the US into bankruptcy simply by calling in all the U.S. debt which China holds, we have to ask why anyone who cares about what people can contribute would oppose abortion. The Chinese government cares about living children, not possible children. Their children contribute a lot.

      The folks down the street from us adopted three little boys not long ago, after raising two adopted kids prior. We know many, many families, including our own, who sponsor poverty-striken kids overseas. How about just a few stats (?): Americans are the most generous people on earth, contributing far more to foreign aid and outreach to children than anyone, most of it from private funds, and this doesn’t count volunteer labor, or loans at favorable terms.

      Interesting too: liberal versus conservative giving to charity overall.

      The Chinese hunt women down in the night, forcing them to have abortions, something of a violation of a woman’s right to privacy wouldn’t you say? Ah, the benevolent Chinese. I wonder how much they send to other countries to lend a hand?

    PS: Forgot to talk about crisis pregnancy centers, all run on private funds, now in the cross hairs of this benevolent new administration.
