Birth Control will never be enough; gotta have Death Control, too!
Stop making flu, MMR, & Covid shots, to shorten the average
life span by a few years! Extending life spans more & more
is a selfish decision at the expense of other critters, future
generations, & the environment! Nowhere else in Nature does
a population increase indefinitely without a crash!
To the pro-natalists who argue that "God will provide," I say: "maybe God WAS
providing by keeping the death rate so high, for thousands of years, until the
1890s, since it wasn't until then that all the world's DOCTORS had learned the
importance of washing their hands?! Maybe God didn't WANT us to discover
germs in the first place?"
let's not forget that more (?) than half the world's women does not have
easy access to a wide range of contraceptives. (Lots of women cannot
safely use hormones or IUDs without harm.) On top of that, many would
agree that poverty is a huge cause of teen pregnancy, because even when
the parents don't WANT their children to marry early (and millions do), the
teens may see parenthood as the only thing they can accomplish in life.
So until both facts change drastically, we can't say that "birth control will
never be enough."
