BRAVE NEW WORLD ON THE WAY
THE POPULATION PROBLEM REDUX
by William Olkowski, PhD 10.25.12
Globally, assisted reproductive techniques result in 350,000 babies a year, research shows.
5 million artificial matings worldwide since the first in 1978. This is a travesty. When we should be trying to stop unnecessary births we are encouraging people who can’t have a normal fertilization occur to have children. We should be encouraging people, instead, to adopt children. And take the resources from the fertility clinics, and put it into contraception aids of all sorts, and aid for people who adopt so they can be better parents.
But I don’t run the world. I guess it’s not a rational world after all. But that will not stop me from pushing along what rationality I can muster.
