Re: “O'Sullivan

This column is chilling, but not in the way the writer intends. Rather, it is chilling to envision United States' citizens even having to defend rhetorically their _inalienable_ right to determine the size of their families (that would be "liberty") and the equally _inalienable_ right to life (that would be, um, "life") -- that is, the rights to reproduce and not be killed in abortion. Green fear-mongering pales in comparison to the threat of the loss of our basic liberties. Our Founders must be spinning in their graves!

Overpopulation is just as much of a hoax as it has always been; most of the world isn't even replacing its population. What is needed, however, is improved resource production and distribution. The earth _has_ the resources our population needs! Let's not solve the problem of poverty by killing the poor!

Thank God for charities like those of the Catholic Church that help the poor all over the world, regardless of faith. And, thank God that the Church has preserved and furthered knowledge throughout history, from Middle Age Benedictine monasteries to the modern Vatican observatory!

And, yes, I am a proud Catholic, a Mom of four gifts from God in four years -- and yes, my husband and I are open to having more children, however many God wishes to bless us with. And, no, the government _will not_ force us to surrender our God-given rights, and even less so will misguided earth-worshippers! Martyrs have died for a lot less than this. And, there are many, many families just like ours...

Observe: Humans have free will and can love; we are not mere animals, lions to be forced onto the Pill! To put it spiritually, we are made in the image and likeness of God, whether we deform that image miserably by sin or not. Why would we ever choose to exchange such a dignity from God for regarding ourselves as nothing more than animals in a zoo?!
