Only 50%? What? Me worry?
I started the reduction on my own, but it's slow work..
Thanks, Plinius, for the excellent site http://www.vhemt.org.
Most Volunteers subscribe to the philosophy embodied in the motto “May we live long and die out”, but if someone doesn’t want to live long that’s their business. Really, the only action required for becoming a VHEMT Volunteer or Supporter is not adding another human being to the population. A couple could conceivably be expecting and decide to become VHEMT. That new human would be the last one they produced. VHEMT Supporters are not necessarily in favor of human extinction, but agree that no more of us should be created at this time.
Volunteers are so diverse in religious, political, and philosophical views that it would be divisive to begin formulating official Movement positions.
Beware of dogmas. We speak with our own voices.
I'm a voluntary nonbreeder too.
Plinius, from 1927 when my parents' conceived their first until 1963 when their fifth left for college, they mostly worked. (My mom said a baby is heaven going in and hell coming out.)
During a six-year marriage my wife and I bred none; we played.
I was unwanted in my parents' house, so I lightened the burden by not having children. I have used my maternal feelings for stray cats, other unwanted people and almost everything that needed some extra care.
