I’m listening to politicians rambling on about paid maternity leave and one just observed that it’s a crying shame that in Australia the birth rate is less than 2.0 per female. Said same politician is advocating for more financial support for those undergoing IVF.
This planet does not need more people. Governments should not be encouraging their production.
I’d like to point out that as it has in the past, Australia can very easily import humans to fill any shortage of warm bodies needed to care for the Baby Boomers in their dottage. We don’t need to breed workers for the elderly-care industry.
