Now I am all for treating our earth and resources with respect. I believe we should.. but people this is getting crazy!
I found this to be an Interesting transcript from Glenn Beck,
GLENN: Ten years ago she was pregnant. In the last ten years she hasn’t had a chance to cradle her own baby. She hasn’t had a chance to have a pair of innocent eyes gazing up at her with unconditional love, to feel that little hand slipping into hers, a little voice calling saying, “Mommy, Mommy.” The very thought of it Toni now says makes her shudder with horror because when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief that she was helping save the planet.This is one of the more incredible stories you will ever hear. She was sterilized at the age of 27 to reduce her carbon footprint. I don’t know, Toni. You’re still breathing. You breathe good oxygen in, you breathe good oxygen out. You know what I’m saying? The bad oxygen, you’re leaving a pretty big carbon footprint. You’re still eating. Maybe you should go to a doctor, see if they can euthanize you. She was so determined that the terrible mistake of pregnancy should never happen again that she begged the doctor who performed the abortion to sterilize her at the same time. He refused. She works for an environmental charity and she “Relentlessly hunted down a doctor who would perform sterilization. Finally eight years ago Toni got her way. At the age of 27, this young woman, at the height of her reproductive years, was sterilized to protect the planet. Instead of mourning the loss of the baby she killed in the womb, Toni relishes her decision.” She says, “Having children is selfish. It’s all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet.” I don’t think I’ve ever — having children is selfish? Toni, Toni, Toni, hmmm. This clearly, from the lips of a person who has never had children. Having children is quite possibly the most selfless thing you could ever do. Believe me, you don’t have time for yourself when you have children. You can’t be selfish. They’re always pooping and sneezing and cryin’. There’s no time for you!
She says, “Every person who is born uses more food, more water, more land, more fossil fuels, more trees, produces more garbage, more pollution, more greenhouse gases, adds to the problem of overpopulation.” Ahhhh! She says, “While most parents view their children as the ultimate miracle of nature,” she says, “They’re a sinister threat to the future.” Yeah, yeah.She said, “When I started school, I got a job at retail and at 19 I met my first husband. No sooner had we finished our wedding cake than all of our relatives started to ask when we could expect a new addition to the family. I always told them it would never happen, but nobody listened. When I was a child I loved bird watching.” Probably bought that damn bird book! “In my teens bird watching developed into a passion for the environment, as well as welfare for animals. I became a vegetarian when I was 15.” A vegetarian? I scoff at vegetarians but let the vegans. “Even my parents used to smile. Well, you’ll change one day. The only person who understood how I felt was my husband, who didn’t want children, either.” Of course not! He’s a guy. He just wants sex without any consequence.“We both passionately wanted to save the planet.” No, he didn’t. He just wanted to have sex with you. “Not to produce any new life that would only add to the problem. ” Boy, that is the best thing. Stu, is that the best scam going?
You know, In my opinion it is up to the individual on whether or not he/she wants to reproduce, but this is getting freaking ridiculous! I can see it now, first we will be limited as to how many children we may have..Sound like China? let’s see now, one, yes one child is the limit..oh, it was an accident..well, we will have to abort and for this trouble you have caused, we need to charge you carbons too! After all, Gore pays just for having lots of rooms to heat and cool. You need to pay because of the long term space you’re taking up!
