Please, give us 1.37 million new, unwanted people added to our population per year.
Please, give us 123,300 more people in the Unemployment lines per year.
[Update : 4/5/2011 :
I have come to believe that this is exactly the driving force behind the Republican embrace of government interfering in the Health and Life decisions of women (and men) to outlaw abortions. They seek to flood the labor market to lower wages and provide corporations with a limitless supply of desperate job-seekers ]
Please give us 178,100 more people stuck in poverty, many of those going hungry or starving, per year.
Please give us 42,470 more people who have committed crimes and are living in Prisons per year.
Please, let us have 5,891 more murder victims per year.
Please give us 493 more kids in foster care per year.
Please give us 2,877 more homeless people per year.
Those numbers assume that with the extra population things will stay statistically the same instead of getting even worse – as having more population usually means. For one instance, Hunger will greatly increase because food production will decrease as farmland is cleared to house the increased population.
So, where is the morality in that? Is increasing those numbers really the responsible thing to do?
Nobody is Pro-Abortion and Anti-Choice people are certainly not “Pro-Life” as they claim. Pro-Choice is a matter of Personal Responsibility. I choose Quality over Quantity of Life.
