Women Go On BirthStrike Because Of Climate Change

5:46 PM 03/05/2019 | Politics

Caitlin McFall | Contributor

BirthStrike is the newest movement in the push to advance climate change regulations.

At least 60 women have joined the BirthStrike movement, which encourages women to refuse to have children because they believe the earth is in crisis due to climate change. Members of this newly formed group believe it would be unjust to raise children in a world that could look vastly different than the world they grew up in.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been outspoken on this subject, holding a live Q&A from her kitchen and asking the question, “Is it OK to still have children?” (RELATED: Poll: 1/3 Of Americans Share Ocasio-Cortez’s Worry About Having Kids With Climate Change)

According to a report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which is a body in the United Nations focused on assessing the world’s climate trends, having fewer children is the best way people can cut down on CO2 emissions. And this has prompted the formation of BirthStrike.

The report estimates that having one child less per family will save 58.6 tons of CO2 per year, whereas living car-free is estimated to only save about 2.4 tons of CO2 per year.

AOC has not said that people should stop having children. But she has emphasized that “we need a universal sense of urgency” and that the “watered-down proposals” being offered “are frankly going to kill us.”

Tune in to see what exactly is happening with this BirthStrike movement.

That is one way to cull those that cant think for themselves from this planet….

Now all of us who can think for themselves just need to have 4-5 children and eventually we will take over the Earth….haha

Wow! 60 women. We are down to about 158,000,000 females left. Cut out to you, too old and I bet there’s no more than 110,000,000 left. Bet you single guys are distraught that your blind date won’t have your baby.

Let them swear off having children. Get themselves neutered and spayed. I am ENTIRELY in favor of that. No need to have feral children dumped on someone’s farm or front lawn in the suburbs in a cardboard box, right?

Seriously, if they find having offspring offensive to their senses, it means fewer of THEM. And when they die, no one will remember their names.

No, they probably have been so brainwashed from birth that they truely believe what they say.

I’d like to see a more rapid solution to the problem but if Darwinian selection is all we’ve got it’s a good start. All those who deny that climate changes all the time should be encouraged not to reproduce.

Intelligence and the ability to asses one’s environment is an essential survival trait. These women clearly fail. The sooner the blood line disappears the better.

BTW, I don’t give them more than five years before they have a “happy accident”.

The anti-vaxxers are doing something simlar. They’re still having kids, but many of them will not live long enough to reproduce due to their parents’ stupidity. I hate it for the kids who have to die because their parents are idiots. But at least their ability to pass their views on to their children is hampered.

Nah, not religious fanatics at ALL:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shakers

“At its peak in the mid-19th century, there were 6,000 Shaker believers. By 1920, there were only 12 Shaker communities remaining in the United States.

At the present time, there is only one active Shaker village, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, which is located in Maine. Their celibacy combined with external and internal societal changes resulted in the thinning of the Shaker community, and consequently many of the other Shaker settlements are now village museums.”

This is good news in many respects.
1- shorter waiting times for doctor appointments of other couples, especially in health service rationing countries
2- less stressed delivery room services and staff
3- better choices for day care services and grammar schools
4- less financial pressure in health service budgets
5- fewer Green divorces and broken homes
6- more space for migrants with other (traditional) values

The only downside is more free time for paid protesters and over-represented policy advocates.

The article, and probably most members of this movement are missing a point:
The women joining this movement never intended to have children in the first place.
It’s not a sacrifice, it’s an excuse for something THEY see as a shortcoming, that can instead be dressed up as a virtue.

The other component is a moral argument: “if you came across a person about to jump off, and you could save their life buy giving them $500, would you?”

The answer is of course yes.
But not IF:
a) I know they are definitely going to jump anyway or
b) I know they don’t intend to jump in the first place at all.

49 years ago we got married. Today we are us + 2, grown up, children (plus wives) and 3 grandsons.

My wife’s female cousin ,who lived next door to her in their childhood years, had been indoctrinated by her father, who fought in WW2, that there would be a third world war with atom bomb usage and resultant massive destruction. For those of us living at that time that was a logical extrapolation of the “Cold War”.

We carried on as normal, procreation wise, whilst the cousin and her husband, who chose not to have children, are now regretting their decision. Maybe in 50 years these “climate change” females may also regret their decision not to have children.

Situations change so my advice is just carry on as normal.

Another symptom of the harm that fear-ideology does to harm minds and lives, creating errors that can’t be undone. The current misguided virtue-signalers are encouraging others to harm their lives and futures, because of a mass delusion spread by despicable NGOs, parasites and spineless deceitful politicians.

18 months after I left Uni I decided I needed to start a business to become independent of employers so that I could be my own boss and not be reliant on opportunism or whim. I did not want a ‘job’ I just wanted to be my own employer and make money doing what I wanted to do. A self-appointed ‘best-friend’ told me that I should not bother as in two years I would be back where I’d started, having failed and needing to go work for someone else anyway. He quoted TV level ‘stats’ on how 50% of businesses failed in the first 18 months. I pointed out to him that this also meant that if I persisted the chances of my success became 75% within three years or 87.5% within 4.5 years. The longer I persist the better are my chances of succeeding in business. He insisted I was ‘missing the point’, and proceeded to show me what a terrible attitude he has.

I totally ignored his remarks and proceeded the same as I’d intended regardless and my business progressively succeeded more each quarter. Meanwhile, my now disassociated ‘friend’ was living under his mom’s house in a smelly room as an unemployed ‘proto’-bum, who graduated into a fully-fledged bum about 10 years later and no one who had known him ever heard from him again.

I learned from this to ignore people who are negative, or stoking imaginary fears and their Stats-‘O-Doom as taking their advice invited missed opportunity, personal failure and misery. I just wish I’d been told this earlier, and not had to figure it out by trial and error.

Ignoring the prophets-of-fake-doom and carrying on regardless is the path to success.

I’ve become very tired of all the attention AOC is getting. She’s a clown, elected by the foolish.

The news media give her a platform because it gets them attention and on-line clicks.

She responds to the continuing attention with ever more stupid ideas (a natural progression). Every new stupid idea brings another bout of media attention.

It’s a cycle of stupid and exploitation; our only working example of a perpetual motion machine.

People respond because: a) they’re clownettes who think AOC is a deep-thinker who speaks for them, or; b) they see that AOC is an idiot whose publicity needs some push-back.

In either case, the media wins and the civil structure deteriorates further.

If you are referring to AOC, it seems to be a thing when people go by 3-part names. The other examples from years gone by (political and entertainment) so not a new thing

FDR = Franklin D. Roosevelt (President of US 1930s-1940s)
JFK = John F Kennedy (President of US 1960s)
JNT = John Nathan Turner (Producer of Doctor Who back in the 1980s)
JDF = Jason David Frank (Actor who played the Green/White/Red/Black ranger in the Power Rangers franchise in the 1990s)

Worlds population now = 7,700,000,000
BirthStrike movement = 0,000,000,060
Projected world population = 7,699,999,940 (based on models)

It certainly looks like they might make a difference.
We could look at it another way though:

Worlds population now = 7,700,000,060
BirthStrike movement = 0,000,000,060
Projected world population = 7,700,000,000 (based on models)

Indeed. It’s mainly virtue signaling. the ones among them who are capable of having children (IE of child bearing age and not opposed to having sex with men), sadly, are all too likely to have kids at some point in the not too distant future – children that they’ll infect with their loony ideas.

Since they are not abstaining from sex, which means they are still at risk for conception (a.k.a. “burden”), and it is their wicked purpose to carry out a birth strike (a.k.a. planned parenthood), is it the women’s intent to hold their babies’ lives hostage on pain of abortion, decapitation, dismemberment, and sequestration, unless their demands for, ironically, anthropogenic, perhaps catastrophic, climate change are not met to their satisfaction?

Crazy!

“Members of this newly formed group believe it would be unjust to raise children in a world that could look vastly different than the world they grew up in.”

The world I live in now is vastly different to the world I was born in to. Everything is different now than it was then. For example, fewer open fires which lead to cleaner air. Proper waste water treatment, refuse collection an disposal. Better food availability. Better health. Better transport and better technology. Have I missed any of the basics? I refuse to say better education but certainly vastly better access to information without having to leave the house to get to a library.

STAN: Women have a perfect right to play a part in our movement, Reg.
FRANCIS: Why are you always on about women, Stan?
STAN: I want to be one.
REG: What?
STAN: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me ‘Loretta’.
REG: What?!
LORETTA: It’s my right as a man.
JUDITH: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?
LORETTA: I want to have babies.
REG: You want to have babies?!
LORETTA: It’s every man’s right to have babies if he wants them.
REG: But… you can’t have babies.
LORETTA: Don’t you oppress me.
REG: I’m not oppressing you, Stan. You haven’t got a womb! — Where’s the fetus going to gestate?! You going to keep it in a box?!
LORETTA: [crying]
JUDITH: Here! I– I’ve got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can’t actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody’s fault, not even the Romans’, but that he can have the right to have babies.
FRANCIS: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister. Sorry.
REG: What’s the point?
FRANCIS: What?
REG: What’s the point of fighting for his right to have babies when he can’t have babies?!
FRANCIS: It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.
REG: Symbolic of his struggle against reality.

It is a Red Pill, with the BirthStrike! logo imprinted in white.

The directions say that in the onset of child making, remove the wrapper (they are individually hygienically wrapped) then place between knees and grasp tightly until the event passes.

Volume pre-orders are currently being taken. 0.04% of all sales will be donated to further research and parties.

Following in the footsteps of eugenithist Margaret Sanger ideologies, that reducing the population of people she believed lowered the intelligence of a country. As a racist Margaret Sanger believed minorities were less intelligent and that just being poor made you less intelligent. By founding Planned Parenthood and getting Government subsidies to place these “women’s healthcare centers” strategically in economically depressed districts. They have brainwashed women into believing that having children they can’t afford to raise to have abortions. Along came Roe v. Wade that the Supreme Court approved that until the actual birth of a living baby made it a “person” under our Constitution, that it is not a “person” and aborting it is legal. In the USA alone over 60 Million Abortions – and increasing by the minute – have been performed. Statistics show these abortions are by majority minorities and economically by people living below the poverty line that have among the lowest levels of education. By this we can see that what Margaret Sanger believed, has been made a reality by the majority support from the Democratic Party, that refuses to defund Planned Parenthood. The fact that everywhere there are Planned Parenthoods are in districts that have been controlled by the Democratic Party for decades. By their own policies, the Democratic Party has created their own genocide of people that vote for them. While the Republican Party has spent decades trying to end abortions and defunding Planned Parenthood. The only consolation Republicans can take from this, is that less people that vote for Democrats are being born. But it is sad that over 60 Million people have not been born that could have been having children of their own. Our population could have been over 370 Million as mortality rates have declined. And that doesn’t count the new estimates of over 30 Million illegal aliens living in the USA.

That for decades a fraction of humanity has believed the Earth is overpopulated and yet those same people will not commit suicide or reduce their own family to prove their conviction to their beliefs. They expect that other people should do whatever they preach.

This New Green Deal is another farce that only the ignorant will find ways to advocate for it. These 60 females are starting a movement that will grow and further reduce the number of future Leftist. The Liberal Mind is a mixture of psychological disorders that by their own ideologies is causing their own genocide.

Personally…more power to them and keep on doing whatever you’re doing…

The problem here isn’t that these morons have decided not to do something based on completely wrong information and an asinine ideology; it’s the sickening virtue signaling, along with the hope that their actions along with the ideology will spread, like a virus.

To show how internationally orchestrated all this depopulation eugenics is, see Germany’s Bild Zeitung 07.03.19. Also Austria’s Die Presse and Kurier .
38 year old German author Verena Brunschweiger’s new book, Child Free, Instead of Childless, says a 50 year old childless woman should get a 50,000 Euro award, and every child less is 50 tons CO2 saving per year. She is SPD.

“A great way to remove the genes for gullibility and non-scientific thinking from the human gene pool permanently.”

Sadly, the gullibility and non-scientific people will continue to reproduce even as the sane and educated stop. This is exactly what we see happening right now.

March 9, 2019 6:52 am

This is excellent news; I hope the movement “catches on.” Humans should have stopped reproducing decades ago, but it is better late than never. Sadly, not enough people care enough about the future to stop reproducing. On the plus side, the USA’s population is decreasing and the USA birth rate is expected to go negative soon— that will help some, but not enough.
