Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Questions Whether Americans Should Have Children to Fight Climate Change

Should Americans decline to reproduce in order to “save the enviroment?”

Published

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to suggest that Americans should decline to reproduce in order to prevent climate change in a Sunday livestream.

AOC’s endorsement of Malthusian politics, even if she doesn’t want the state to enforce them, shows just how far she’s prepared to go in order to advance the climate-alarmist agenda she laid out in the Green New Deal.

AOC claimed that there was “scientific consensus” that the lives of children were going to be “very difficult,” and that there was a “legitimate question if it was okay to still have children.” She mentioned far more legitimate economic factors making the prospect of raising a family more difficult in 21st century America, but went on to state that was also a “moral question” about the prospect of having kids.

It’s unclear if AOC is suggesting having kids is problematic because of how climate change would affect their life prospects, or if she thinks it’s immoral to create future generations of Americans who will inevitably create carbon emissions throughout their entire lives.

The policy isn’t the first AOC has suggested that would radically alter the lives of Americans- she suggested that the United States decrease meat consumption in order to alleviate methane emissions from livestock. However, the notion of going without a few hamburgers is mere peanuts compared to the idea of purposely declining to have children for “enviromental” reasons.

In any case, Americans already aren’t having enough children to replace those who are dying, and annual births continue to decrease. Ongoing population growth in the United States is attributable to immigration, both legal and illegal.

Global population projections suggest that populations of highly developed nations such as the United States, Japan, and Germany will in fact decline in the 21st century, whereas the populations of developing nations like Afghanistan and Nigeria will increase exponentially.

After a lengthy obstructionist attempt to delay the confirmation, Democrats proved unable to stop a floor vote on Barrett’s confirmation on Monday night. Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attempted a last minute filibuster in a race against time- claiming the eventual confirmation of Barrett represented “one of the darkest days in the history of the Senate,” but Mitch McConnell ultimately arranged a vote.

Josh Hawley had earlier hailed the confirmation of a justice with a strong pro-life track record.

The vote to confirm Barrett as a SCOTUS Justice passed by a count of 52-48, with Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski voting in favor of Barrett’s confirmation. Maine’s Susan Collins was the only Republican senator to vote against Barrett’s confirmation, refusing to budge on her stance that the next President should appoint Ginsburg’s replacement.

Judge Barrett is expected to be sworn in as an Associate Justice by Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House on Monday night.
