Travis Rieder, an environmental extremist and climate change believer featured on NBC News’ Think website, is suggesting that children harm the planet due to their carbon footprint and even compares his own daughter to a murderer who must be “responsible for her own [carbon] emissions.” Rieder goes on to write, “If having one fewer child reduces one’s contribution to the harms of climate change, the choice of family size becomes a morally relevant one.”
This kind of argument brings a new type of “morality” from the Left, a new ethical argument to which many pro-aborts might turn to in the future to endorse a “responsible” view of family planning.
