I couldn’t agree more with Fabi, that we must take bold action to protect our planet. I see a declining birthrate as a wonderful thing. What is the ideal world population that the earth can readily support? If you know the answer to this, please let me know. Making choosing to be childfree a more accepted option for young adults is a great way to accomplish both goals- reducing world population and therefore protecting our planet. We, of course, must also reduce our personal footprint by using fewer resources. Many of us are already doing so and are eager to do more in this direction. We as childfree adults need to have strong spokespeople to represent our position, to speak out for us and also for those who are sitting on the fence and unsure. The fence-sitters get nothing but pushing from society, friends, and family to procreate, so it’s up to us to let them know that they do have a choice, and it’s just as good a choice as being a parent would be.
