Woman Got Herself Sterilized to "Save the Planet"

Toni Vernelli, 27, got herself sterilized because she wanted to save the planet!

At the age of 27 this young woman at the height of her reproductive years was sterilised to "protect the planet".

Incredibly, instead of mourning the loss of a family that never was, her boyfriend (now husband) presented her with a congratulations card.

While some might think it strange to celebrate the reversal of nature and denial of motherhood, Toni relishes her decision with an almost religious zeal.

"Having children is selfish. It's all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet," says Toni, 35.

"Every person who is born uses more food, more water, more land, more fossil fuels, more trees and produces more rubbish, more pollution, more greenhouse gases, and adds to the problem of over-population."

While most parents view their children as the ultimate miracle of nature, Toni seems to see them as a sinister threat to the future.

A bit extreme in my opinion, but what's your take on it? Did Toni do the right thing?

I applaud her actions. By sterilizing herself,she's also preventing the possibility of having a defective,disabled,disfigured human being coming into existance,especially in a developed nation like the United States,where social crulety and harassment seem to be the norm,all in no small part to our Zionist/Neo-con dominated media. Some people are just better than others. I much rather prefer death to being a disabled American I am. Over population is strongly related to the Judeo-Christian-Islamic culture which encourages people to 'be fruitful,multiply,to subdue the Earth,have dominion over the fowl,beast and planets' as He commanded it.

I totally agree with Persephone about the kid starvation thing.
And I also agree with this woman's choice, except that i think it's to late : why should we care about a planet we already fucked up ? So I act like a good christian and act as God asked to me, and i'm taking the life out of this damn earth because I am human, and only me and my siblings deserve to suck it dry. So, my new opinion is : why not doing as much as kids as possible then ?

The first comment was right : "Only stupid people are breeding."

This thread is full of hatred. How does it affect any of you if this woman doesn't want to have a baby? Or if any other woman doesn't want to have a baby? There will always be plenty of women who are willing to have lots of babies. I don't think you need to worry about under-population of the planet. And second, why would you wish her dead?

After reading these comments, I'd certainly think twice about bringing a child into a world that's filled with such cruel people.
