Population debate (letter)


by Marcus L'Estrange

News Weekly, September 4, 2010

Sir,

Dick Smith, Bob Brown and others have missed a point in wanting to curb the population growth and have in reality embraced a culture of death.

Birth-rates worldwide have already declined by more than a half since 1980, so population growth has already been checked.

How low do Dick, Bob want it to go? Low enough so that we are not replaced?

The developed world, in fighting for an anti-child society and for abortion on demand, has created a demographic winter.

We have overlooked the other side of the ledger: that the children of today are the workers, the producers, innovators, care-givers and taxpayers of tomorrow - those whose payments keep pension-funds solvent, those who empty the bedpans in nursing homes, operate factories and farms and keep the lights on all over the world. The family with four children helps to assure a comfortable old age to the childless.

Marcus L'Estrange,
St Kilda, Vic.
