Meet The Women Who Won't Have Babies

. . . because they're not eco friendly.

by Natasha Courtenay-Smith and Morag Turner - November 21st, 2007 - London Daily Mail

Sarah started work for the Ethical Consumer magazine, and seven years ago she met her fiance Mark Hudson, a 37-year- old health- care worker. When they started dating in 2003, they immediately discussed their views on children. "To my relief, Mark was as adamant as me that he didn't want a family. After a year of dating, we started talking about sterilisation," says Sarah.

"I didn't want to have an 'accident' if contraception didn't work - we would be faced with the dilemma of whether to keep the baby." While other young couples sit down and discuss mortgages, Sarah and Mark discussed the medical options for one or the other to be sterilised.

"We realised it was a much more straightforward procedure, safer and easier, for a man to be sterilised through a vasectomy than a woman to be sterilised," says Sarah.
"In January 2005, Mark had a vasectomy and we both felt incredibly relieved there was no chance of us having a baby."

Ironically, the couple who have decided to deny themselves children for the sake of the planet, actively enjoy the company of young children.

There are two groups of people in this universe of people who want no babies. Those who choose it for themselves. Those who think it should be forced on others. The first type I have no problem with. It is the second type, many of whom flock to PETA, that I find truly repugnant. I do not understand how they can simultaneously think our world is great but that one species God created has to be wiped out? Do they not see the idiocy of that position? Even if they deny the existence of God it makes no sense. If all this "just happened", how can there be anything wrong with our species doing what it wants?
