Population Controllers Call Babies “Carbon Legacies,” a Threat to the Environment

4

I guess it takes global warming hysteria to get the bioethics movement to criticize what is known in the trade as “artificial reproductive technologies” or ART.

But now, in the ever more radical Journal of Medical Ethics, Cristina Richie, of Boston College’s Department of Theology, argues that these technologies should be regulated to limit the number of children–called “carbon legacies,” as a means of fighting climate change. From the article:

A carbon footprint is the aggregate of resource use and carbon emissions over a person’s life. A carbon legacy occurs when a person chooses to procreate. All people have carbon footprints; only people with biological children have carbon legacies.

Population Controllers Call Babies “Carbon Legacies,” a Threat to the Environment

I don’t know if Richie coined the term, but it is ridiculous. Children are children, not bundles of carbon producers.

ART is an almost unregulated industry, a lamentable circumstance with which many bioethicists are content. But Richie says global warming has to change the field’s thinking about ART.

Through the use of ARTs multiple children are born, adding to worldwide carbon emissions. This is a burden on the already over-taxed ecosystem to support new beings who might not have existed without medical intervention. It is therefore the obligation of environmental policymakers, the ethical and medical communities, and even society to carefully weigh the interests of our shared planet with a business that intentionally creates more humans when we must reduce our carbon impact.

All those IVF babies are melting the ice caps!

While population growth and ARTs are not the primary environmental issue that should concern ecologists and bioethicists, the numbers of ART babies are increasing at an exponential rate. If we were to look at these numbers in terms of carbon emissions instead of raw population growth data, the statistics look grim.

No, grim is the exploitation of surrogates in biological colonialism and the eugenic impetus that has sunk its fangs deep into the heart of the industry. In the face of such human objectification, sorry, I can’t get upset about global warming.

It’s time to regulate!

The unregulated ART business can no longer be endorsed and the medical industry ought not operate in an environmental vacuum. Retrenchment in all areas of life is the key to slowing down or halting carbon emissions that lead to climate change. For each child made through medical intervention a carbon legacy results. ARTs should be allocated with due concern for the environment and sober consideration for the implications of climate change.

Carbon caps on the fertility business and eliminating funded ARTs for those who are not biologically infertile are the beginning of an environmentally sustainable ART business.​

“And Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little carbon legacies to come onto me’…” Good grief.

    CO2 is not responsible for climate change. CO2 levels are critically low on Earth and if they were to fall much lower would mean human’s would die in vast numbers resulting in their extinction.

    Low CO2 levels are also responsible for poor crop yields and crop failures and increased crop yields by increased CO2 levels would expose geoengineering such as chemtrails and GMO crops as vectors for global depopulation of humans along with environmental and radiological pollution from wars and nuclear power plants.

    However the reptilian’s are more robust and can withstand greater temperate differences, lower light levels, higher radiation levels and much lower levels of CO2. The planet is overpopulated at over 7.2 billion people but mass culling is wrong. Industrialisation and improved living standards and reducing fertility are three ways to reduce population growth.

    Spiritually speaking the body is not the person it’s the consciousness (or consciousnesses) inside a body that make a body a person with a personality. Those wanting to know about where these many extra consciousnesses come from and why they are here on Earth could look at the link below and decide tor themselves if they want to believe the information provided.

      That’s right…CO2 is a good thing. It’s what plants need to thrive and in turn produce Oxygen…We exhale and produce CO2…
      Reptillian?? Have you ever met one? Can anyone meet a reptillian?? Do they wear clothes??
      Who decided that the world is overpopulated by exactly 7.2 billion people and how as that determined??

    These science worshipping types really hate everything that makes us human don’t they?
    Perhaps it’s time we helped them resign from the human race

      There is NO science in AGW…The problem with “Global Warming” is there is NO empirical science to support it! Just the pseudo-science of Shamology! They think picking convenient periods of weather to support their story can substitute for CLIMATE.
      If someone thinks “artificial reproductive technologies” (ART) needs to be regulated, we definitely need to regulate Shamology!
