It makes absolutely no sense to continue to overpopulate regions of the world, and then find it necessary to have wars to blow up the excess humans we
have no ability to feed, educate, and sustain.
If each family would MAKE THE CHOICE to have no more than two children, and use birth control to prevent more from being conceived, there would be
abundant resources for everyone, and we would be lots healthier.
If each couple would be tested to see if there is the possibility that either or both of them could be carrying a gene known to be responsible for
birth defects, and then opt to ADOPT a child instead, or (in the worst case scenario) abort a child in the womb who is scientifically proven to be
defective, and then adopt a child who otherwise will grow up in a system that fails to nurture properly, fewer State and Federal monies would need to
be extended for long-term care that the family cannot afford, and there would be fewer children who grow up to become inmates.
We can't be expected to tell all the other countries of the world what to do, but if we act responsibly and stop pretending it's GOD'S WILL for
every child ever conceived to be born, and begin to set a proper example for other countries to emulate, once they see how much our economy, health
care, prosperity, and maturity grows from acting WITH conscience instead of having conscience dictated to us by our religious beliefs, we will have a
positive impact--upon our own country and our personal lives, and upon the lives of others who live elsewhere and wish to prosper as we can do IF we
are willing to make the sacrifices required.
IF there really is a GOD... he certainly didn't intend for women to spend their entire lives being baby factories, and he didn't expect our
societies to make up for our inability to care for them all, when we have more than we can afford, or ones with severe medical problems who can never
enjoy life, nor contribute to it. Pastors are always saying, "God helps those who help themselves." And so if we are going to believe in God, then
we should give him the credit for helping us to understand HOW BEST to help ourselves--which, right now, is by deliberately slowing down the
birthrate, adopting the children who need love and nurturing to become good adults, and by being good stewards of the Earth and to each other.
Remember: It wasn't GOD who allowed the OctoMom to have 8 more than the 6 she already couldn't care for... it was just a selfish woman with no
conscience and no common sense, and the doctors & nurses who aided and abetted her. And you and I are footing the bills for most of their lives.
If WE don't begin to realize where the destruction of all civilizations that came before us began, we will just breed on, willy-nilly, until we, too,
are expunged from the Earth by our own stupidity... and lack of foresight.
