Population woes

Let’s face it: The majority of the world’s problems are due to overpopulation. Increasing pollution,global warming (or climate change as some who can’t read a thermometer would call it), disappearing species, diminishing resources (including food), and the present and future pandemics, are due to too many people.

So if you are one of the (world-wide) religious zealots who are anti-choice and anti-birth control you may have succeeded in being responsible for bringing an unwanted child into the world, but you may be hastening the extinction of the human race. Say your prayers; you’ll need ‘em.
