Just a quick post to demonstrate the kind of world we live in and the possiblities pronatalists expose their progeny to. Famine in North Korea has reached such proportions that there are now cases of children being eaten by their parents:
Yes, this is the magical world full of wondrous possibilities that breeders give the thumbs-up to and are happy to perpetuate due to their ignorance and egotism.
Notice also the contrast between the main material and the stories in the sidebar. This is the world we live in. Ain't it great! Also, in the comments we see many 'I would never do that no matter what the circumstances!' remarks, foolish, of course, given that History provides ample evidence that people will do anything to anyone in order to survive a few minutes longer.
Of course, in spite of this, we'll still see the same old excuses trotted out, the same old, 'this is just unfortunate', 'this can be fixed', etc etc. Pronatalists, as we all know, believe, just like Peter Pan, that if they close their eyes and wish hard enough everything will be ok. Try telling that to those Korean children.
