    What these funds no doubt have in common is the severe discrimination visited on the single and childfree, who if killed would have few dependents to cash in.

    Why do we maintain such a pronatalist, matrimanial society that rewards people for the degree of complication they’ve made in their lives?

    I imagine that if Jesus, St Paul and HD Thoreau had been killed, nobody would have received anything from these victim funds, since all of them were single, childfree and unemployed. Octomom, on the other hand, would leave behind millions to be divided among her 8 children.

    Because most people realize that the human world comes to an end if not enough people have children. So the “childfree” are just a bunch of parasitic free riders.

    I think the Bible holds that the world will come to an end, and, indeed, Christians are hoping for it. Our Consitution does not favor maintaining the human race, nor should it. The animals and plants would rejoice if humans disappeared. So where does Bellmore get the idea that breeding should be encouraged?
