33. Those are two different issues

 

one is a scientific problem.

The other is social.

How about solving the problem of too many unwanted children before
displacing even more children by avoiding adoption in favour of a pointless
gimmick like this?


How do you "solve" that problem? People aren't stray cats. You can't forcibly sterilize them or put them down if they breed out of control.


How about solving the problem of too many inherited diseases ?


By telling certain people they can't breed?

How about solving the problems of child abuse, kidnapping, murder,
exploitation rather than just providing fuel?


You know, if we got away with all medical care relating to pregnancies and childhood vaccinations there would be more children dying at a young age. That would alleviate this problem would it not?
