Yes, childless people don't contribute to population growth, and without population growth there's no economic growth. And economic growth (i.e., big controlling corporations who funnel money into the coffers of our legislators) is the engine that will sputter and die without more children. I heard Paul Ryan, former Speaker of the House, once say that "We need to increase population!" So, no abortions, ladies, and no saving us from climate change brought on, not by people, but by greedy corporations and their investors. OMG, it's a vicious cycle, and I have no confidence we're going to get out of this one.
