Replying to LO13129 --

Clyde makes an eloquent statement about the changing 'goodness' value of
birth control from the days when having lots of children was practically a
moral imperative in order topreserve the local community and the family to
now when therre is a shortage of resources to feed the newly born mouths.

To dramatize Clyde's point, let me add that there those those today,
primarily in the women's movement, who believe that the current emphasis
on birth control misses the point and robs women of one of their critical
reasons for being. They would say that the current famines in various
places are not the result of out-of-control birthing, but are instead the
product of a distribution system controlled by the "haves" for their own

This re-emphasizes Clyde's point. Who can say with certainty what is
good, right, or even just?
