Woman Aborts Baby to Save the Planet?

A UK woman decided to abort her baby and sterilize herself ASAP so that she would not create more of a carbon footprint:

...when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief she was helping to save the planet.

[...]

Incredibly, instead of mourning the loss of a family that never was, her boyfriend (now husband) presented her with a congratulations card.

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.


What the Hell are they teaching them in the UK? Is there something in the water? Having children is selfish? What about having an abortion? That's SELFISH. What a sick, sick woman, and a sick, sick, liberal world we live in.

Mark adds: "Sarah and I live as green a life a possible. We don't have a car, cycle everywhere instead, and we never fly.

"We recycle, use low-energy light bulbs and eat only organic, locally produced food.

"In short, we do everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint. But all this would be undone if we had a child.

"That's why I had a vasectomy. It would be morally wrong for me to add to climate change and the destruction of Earth.

Morally wrong? What is morally wrong about having a baby? If it DOES happen to be morally wrong, than the pure existence of all people on Earth, from saint to murderer is immoral, and thus, it would be hard to imagine us living moral lives now wouldn't it? As well, if Mark sees everything he does to reduce carbon emission as a moral venture, than how is it that 1) he cannot imagine having a child that could do the same, 2) how could it be immoral if all he is doing is reducing the "badness" of his state of existence? And one more thing: since when is murder alright in the name of global warming?

Whats next, do they want us to live in caves to reduce our carbon footprint?
