As if the sickening holocaust against childhood that we call a woman’s prerogative and personal choice doesn’t offer enough evidence that children are increasingly being seen as  the great inconvenience, perhaps the latest assault on the gift of a fruit-bearing womb will persuade you that society is nurturing a culture of hatred towards children. Jonathan Porritt, who chairs the Sustainable Growth Commission in Great Britian, says that families that choose to give birth to more than two children are “irresponsible” and create an “unbearable burden on the environment”. He also states that “curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming”. Talk about an inconvenient truth.
