Concerned about the impact of rising population numbers, a British environmentalist group is urging United Kingdom residents to have fewer children.
Breitbart reports a new report from Population Matters argues that the predicted population growth in the UK in the next 15 years will put a heavy strain on the economy. According to the environmental group, the expected 5.5 million-person surge could cost the UK billions of dollars for roads, infrastructure and more.
One of the groups proposed solutions is to promote abortions.
Heres more from Breitbart:
They claim drivers will waste an extra 12 hours a year on average in traffic delays by 2030, costing the average household £600 [ about $730] a year in lost working time, additional fuel, and the higher cost of delivering goods.
The group is lobbying the government to pour more public money into family planning to curb the population boom, including easy access to contraception and abortion.
Reacting to the report, Chris Packham, the broadcaster and a patron of Population Matters, wrote in The Times:
In the UK we already have the choice of how many children we have. If we want them to enjoy the natural world to have a thriving, supportive natural world they will need to survive we have to recognise that the more of them we have, the more difficult it will be for them to do that.
We all need breathing room: animals, plants, human beings. We shouldnt have to compete for it, and we dont have to.
Overpopulation fears have been around for hundreds years, coupled with dire predictions about huge populations depleting the worlds resources. These predictions largely have been proved untrue, but they still are being used as excuses to push abortions. In 2015, the New York Times even published an article admitting that overpopulation fears were unfounded.
Steven Mosher of the Population Research Institute wrote at the time:
The article included a video interview with Paul Ehrlich, the author of The Population Bomb. He was the butterfly scientist from Stanford who scared tens of millions with the specter of overpopulationand the population apocalypse that would supposedly result. He predicted that by the 1970s the population bomb would explodeand hundreds of millions of people would starve to death in India and elsewhere. (India is still there, and doing quite well, thank you.)
But Americas newspaper of record, as it styles itself, failed to record the horrors themselves. It was woefully incomplete. There was no mention of the human costs when governments made population control a priority. No mention of the savage forced abortions and forced sterilizations that followed. No mention of the killing of baby girls through female infanticide and sex-selective abortion. No mention of the wasted money, the age and gender imbalances that continue to unfold and will take effect for years to come. No mention of how the overpopulation panic helped to fuel the rise of birth control use and abortion.
These horrors include coerced and forced abortions and sterilizations in China, India and other countries across the world.
Even if overpopulation was a problem, killing innocent human beings should never be the answer. The United States and the UK do not allow born children to be killed because of environmental or economic concerns, and they should not let children in the womb be killed either.
The jihadis do it with bombs, machetes, IED's, exlosives and crashing airplanes.
The environmentalists, with contraceptives, sterilization, abortion, gender disorientation, sexual dysfunction and buggery.
Have no children and import millions of Muslims.
Self imposed genocide.
The people who want you to stop having children also want open borders.
The idea is to replace you. You are being replaced.
I thought that Trump’s winning put an end to the need for violent revolution.
Now I’m not so sure anymore.
I wish there were a non threatening way to let the powers that be know we WILL NOT sit idly by if they succeed in damaging Trump, in whatever way.
Brits to abortion activists: go shoot yourselves.
I agree. They should commit sucide. We’ll se how long their bull shit lasts.
Why. They stop having children they’ll have children from someone else in the 3rd world.
Amazing the ignorance of the Left.
What they should be doing is castrating every male Muslim under the age of 66.
I’m sure that doesn’t apply to the Muslim invaders.
Might work, if the Muzzies would quit forcibly raping every woman they see.
Exactly. Those calling for the ban of children will be the first to go
at the hands of Muslim extremist in UK.
Since most of the people that need to be killed to control population would be MUSLIMS, can we safely say that this group needs to prosecuted for HATE CRIMES?
The Third World Islamists need to stop having babies, the British don't.
Again I point to David P. Goldman's argument that we need to deliberately kill 3 million young Muslim males.
So libs want to leave the world to the muslims and hindus and africans and chinese, basically. Basically they dont mind their populations are expooding and would rather have the industrial nations folks die out.
Well blatant stupidity can be cute when you’re two, but...
Britain has fallen a long way since WW2.
Funny they don't mention from WHERE this growth & surge will be. (hint: jolly old Winstons & Janes aren't the problem).
Of course we all know that on top funding PP, we are also funding IPP. That’s right, International Planned Parenthood. But that should end the moment President Trump resets the Mexico City Policy.
