Meet the women who won't have babies - because they're not eco friendly
Had Toni Vernelli gone ahead with her pregnancy ten years ago, she would know at first hand what it is like to cradle her own baby, to have a pair of innocent eyes gazing up at her with unconditional love, to feel a little hand slipping into hers - and a voice calling her Mummy.
But the very thought makes her shudder with horror.
Because when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief she was helping to save the planet.
Incredibly, so determined was she that the terrible "mistake" of pregnancy should never happen again, that she begged the doctor who performed the abortion to sterilise her at the same time.
He refused, but Toni - who works for an environmental charity - "relentlessly hunted down a doctor who would perform the irreversible surgery.
Finally, eight years ago, Toni got her way.
At the age of 27 this young woman at the height of her reproductive years was sterilised to "protect the planet".
"Having children is selfish. It's all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet," says Toni, 35.
"Every person who is born uses more food, more water, more land, more fossil fuels, more trees and produces more rubbish, more pollution, more greenhouse gases, and adds to the problem of over-population."
"I've never felt a twinge of guilt about what I did, and have honestly never wondered what might have been.
First, it was if you were white, you should feel guilty about oppressing blacks.
Then it was if you were male, you should feel guilty about oppressing women.
Then it was if you were christian, you should feel guilty about oppressing other religions.
Then it was if you living in a western culture, you should feel guilty about oppressing eastern cultures.
Now it's all reached it's final conclusion; if you're human, you should feel guilty about oppressing the entire planet. And if you bear a child, gaia help you!
And here I thought the popular joke was guilt was a Catholic thing.
Now there's proof the nutty-left enviro-kooks and contraception and abortion go hand-in-hand.
Notice the double-talk: "Having children is selfish. It's all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet," Oh, ok, so having an abortion, choosing for the child whether or not it would like an existence, somehow isn't selfish?
These aren't activists, nor are they eco-conscious. They're nihilists, pure and simple. My best friend in highschool was one of them I know how they are. Humanity is a plague upon the earth that needs to be purged. Humanity is evil, the less human beings the better. There is no reason for goodness because humanity is intrinsically evil and will just corrupt the goodness eventually. Life is simply waiting to die, and the sooner the better.
I would call these people self-afflicted martyrs but they don't hold up their 'sacrifice' to move people's pity. They're proud of it. Self-hate has been consumed in such queantities that it has now perverted even human instinct.
An interesting comparison is that 95% of all abortions are done out of convenience. The focus of these people are themselves. In this instance, the abortion was for the planet. In the first case, you have ultimate pride, their god is themselves. In the second, you have the Greenhouse Gestapo as their god.
Both the selfish and the 'selfless' are enchanted with satan's spell.
How about all of these people just off themselves? Seriously. The only way to remove a person's carbon footprint, let alone putting it in the negative is to stop breathing. The more you breathe, the more carbon you create. Gaia would be happier with less carbon and everyone else on earth would be happier without the Greenhouse Gestapo's finger-wagging.
If humanity is such a burden on the planet, and procreating is only a selfish expression of one's impulse to continue their genetic line, then why don't the eco-elite enviro-illuminati lead by example and stop breathing?
What the earth needs is a purging of all the enviro-fundamentalists.
