Too Scared to Have Kids Because of Climate Change

While many liberals say no to having kids as a “pro-choice” decision, a group of about 60 British women and men have banded together and vowed not to have children as an environmental response.

The movement, called BirthStrike, founded by 33-year-old Blythe Pepino, has decided “not to bear children due to the severity of the ecological crisis and the current inaction of governing forces in the face of this existential threat.”

Group member Alice Brown says, “I am depressed every day because of the ecological crisis and I’m terrified of passing this burden on to a child . . . I’m 24 and instead of dreaming about my career and family, I’m burdened with the disease we’ve created. My decision not to have a child I truly feel is a necessity not a choice.”

This hopelessness brought on by the fear of an overwhelming impending extinction-level event is what can happen when humanism as the basis of one’s belief system fails. But when our hope is in the providence of a sovereign God who loves the world He created, denying His creational mandate to be fruitful and multiply cannot be the answer.

British Parents Not Allowed to Intervene to Save Ill Child

UK parents Chris Gard and Connie Yates have a hospitalized 10-month-old who was diagnosed at only eight weeks with a rare genetic condition that causes brain damage. They were hoping to send little Charlie to America for experimental treatment and have raised almost £1.4 million ($1.8 million) to do so through a GoFundMe account.

But the British Supreme Court and now the European Court of Human Rights ruled that baby Charlie was probably suffering pain and should have his life support removed. This week a plea from the parents to intervene in the case was denied.

It’s scary that neither the love of parents nor money for life-saving treatments can rescue a child from a messed-up legal system that literally gives a death sentence!

UK Schools Teach Children to Respect Jihad

Through an instructional book called Talking About Terrorism, published weeks before the Manchester terrorist attack, schools in England have been telling primary age children that terrorists kill people because they believe they are being treated “unfairly and not shown respect.” Along with this indoctrination, children as young as 7 are instructed to write a letter to a terrorist.
