Is this the canary in the cage? The U.N. says twenty million people are starving to death right now unless sufficient aid can be raised. And with a population exceeding seven Billion this is just a foretaste of our impending doom. No way can this small planet produce enough food to sustain such an enormous demand for any great length of time and yet neither the United nations nor any country has so far taken any steps to punish those who still actively discourage the use of contraceptives.
Granted we will, enraged, hunt down these culprits as the end draws near but what good will that do us?
Nor have we, the public, registered much concern. Is that because we do not want to face the enormity of the problem? Or are we distracting ourselves by trying to stop pipelines and closing coal mines as if that will take care of this problem for us. It seems like we are trying to stop the flow in a river without a thought to the big lake above.
What we need, what we must demand, is that our lawmakers make it a punishable offense to actively take steps to discourage, by any means, the use of contraceptives. Let us make this happen–better than expending our energy like puppies chasing their tails
