I don’t see a lot of babies here in my NYC bubble, but I’m reminded of just how baby crazy everybody is when I visit my hometown of Tampa, Florida.
Besides being mucho expensive, having a bajillion kids is pretty awful for the planet, and actress Evangeline Lilly wants people to chill out with the breeding.
Lilly believes that we have to stop having so many children if we want to protect the earth. She says:
“For a very long time, I have had intentions to adopt. We have a huge population problem on Earth. We’re not going to protect the Earth the way we need to protect it if we don’t stop making so many babies.”
“I have always wanted to have a child of my own and I will always want to go through the gift that women have been given to experience that, so I hope to be a mother at some point. I think I can allow myself one child – and from then on, I think I would have to adopt. It makes sense not to add to the population problem.”
What do you think? Should people consider the planet before getting prego? Chime in and share your thoughts!
