Contraception Harms the Environment

Pro-Life Conference to be Held in Dying Europe:

Steven Mosher to Address How Contraception Harms the Environment

As the U.K.’s abortion rate continues to grow, Family Life International-UK and Population Research Institute are joining together to hold an international pro-life conference in London.

“We see this conference as a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of the moral, social and economic consequences of widespread abortion, sterilization and contraception,” says PRI president Steven Mosher.

Mosher’s talk, “Why Catholics Don’t Contracept,” will address the environmental devastation caused by the indiscriminate use of hormonal contraceptives.

The Optimum Population Trust wrongly argues that hormonal contraceptives are the solution to environmental problems like Global Warming,” says Mosher.  “Actually, they are part of the problem”

The stellar lineup of speakers includes Jo Tolck of the Human Life Alliance, Simon Dames of the Scottish Catholic Media Office, James Parker of Harvesters (an international Catholic men’s network), James Bogle of the Catholic Union, and Brian Clowes of Human Life International.

“Last year’s conference in the Cathedral was great success,” says Greg Clovis, head of Family Life International-UK.  “We expect pro-lifers from throughout the British Isles and Continental Europe to attend in large numbers.”

The conference will be held at Westminster Cathedral in downtown London on May 8.

    That video was the most ignorant thing I’ve ever seen. How can you say that something is a myth when it’s freaking slapping you in the face every day? More people does not equal fewer problems. You and I have education and technology to thank for our comfortable living (and I have to include living in a Democracy). Yes, forming communities gave us access to these things, but the simple truth is that the reason there are so many of us today is because we came up with ways to support billions of people, not the other way around. Furthermore, the next billion people are not going to be born countries with high per capita income where populations are either steady or declining. Instead they will be born into the poverty of India, China and Africa. There is an enormous price to pay for not only having so many people walk Earth at the same time, but especially for having each and every one live a “comfortable” life. The landslides occurring in China caused by all of the dams that have been built in order for everyone to have clean water, the spread of diseases in Africa nobody can seem to control, the murder of countless natives of North and South America for the purpose of spreading our seeds to create a new world, and, in my opinion most importantly, the extinction of so many species of animals and plants that did not stand a chance against parasitic man claiming nature as his host are all examples of the consequences of overpopulation. If it were as easy to be fixed as it is to spay or neuter a dog, I would have it done in a heartbeat. If I ever get pregnant, I would have an abortion in a heartbeat. The average American carbon footprint is 20 tons a year. That is five times larger than the average human. Earth cannot afford to have even one more person selfishly using her as an attempt at fulfilling a never ending list of desires. The harder we rape nature, the harder she is going to fight back. Our greed cannot win, and when the end comes, it is going to be brutal-leaving us with only ourselves to blame. Think about it.

    @veritas: your response neither answers profbob’s questions nor gives support of your claims, it merely throws out a couple terse, loaded statements and posts a link hoping that readers would be sufficiently befuddled by your “response” as to give you the benefit of the doubt and search further. Why would we? If you had any powerful reasoning or verifiable facts supporting your claim, you could have easily posted enough to warrant further reading, as it stands, you are easily marked as dogmatic zealots who’s agenda clearly has NOTHING to do with population OR environmental issues, only the Churches arroagant and reckless perpetuation of the myth that one can legislate morality. You feel making contraception less available will reduce abortions? Or even making abortion illegal? When?! When has this approach ever worked? Education and empowerment of women, including the right to make their own decisions is the ONLY tested, just way ever proposed to attain this end. Yet you rail against it. And why? Because it would mean emancipation from the Church as a central authority. Even though supporting feminine empowerment could mean perpetuation of the Church as a trusted guide and advocate for people in Christ’s name, you choose to constanly take the role of the Pharisee: Judging and passing “Law”, and ignoring Christ! When will this end?! Take your nose out of the Law and read your Gospels!

    I would like to see a detailed reasoning for the opinion that we must have a pro-life approach to the world’s problems of overpopulation and global warming. It’s true that Europe’s fertility rate is reducing, but with today’s longer lifespans we don’t need as many people. Poverty, illegal immigration, lack of jobs, as well as the decrease in the amount of arable land and water available per person. I think all of these issues need to be addressed with any proposals that might increase the world’s population.
