Save the environment, don't have kids!

At least if you are in a developing country. That seems to be the message of the "climate change" folks. It's only a matter of time before this becomes mandatory in the name of "saving the planet." And of course it is only poor people who will have to, those darn 'breeders.'

This is at the heart the biggest problem with the environmentalists. They view humans as a cancer on the earth rather than as part of nature. As such they will seek to inflict this ideology on the rest of the world (oftentimes it is the 'other' countries that are the problem, not the people who are advocating these policies).

As Christians we have two things we must continue to defend and watch out for. The dignity of all human life (abortion and contraception must go) and defense of the poor (the developing countries will be targeted for these anti-life policies). We must take care of the environment sure, but with humanity as a part of nature, not the cancer that the environmental movements sees.
