- Alan Ditmore commented on the petition
ONLY contraception can save the world, or your school district. Please sign these petitions advocating municipal environmental
contraception funding, which is increasingly politically realistic due
to The Big Sort in more and more towns, and helps women's rights, quality of life, and school taxes as well as being at
least 5 times more cost-effective than any other environmental effort.
The prochoice and contraception movements are placing too high a priority on defensive actions in the red states when we should be going on the offensive, the side of "change", in the blue states, and cities. The worst places
will get even worse no matter what we do, but the unrealized political potential, the low hanging fruit, is in making the best places even better. This opportunity is being caused by The Big Sort. Mayors are not answerable to rural voters, unlike governors and presidents.
Prochoice churches like the UU church, Presbyterian Church USA, and Anglican Church may consider overpopulation their purview and responsibility to make up for the damage done by pronatalist churches by making use of PopOffsetts:
We americans love cars more than babies, Very soon we will have to choose, and we will choose cars.
Popoffsets almost has it right except that local contraception funding can solve local environmental problems like traffic, school tax;
and landfill, water and sewer treatment capacity. So environmental contraception funding is not just global or long term. Prenatal care adds to local traffic in mere months.
If you can't win significant (over 5% of budget) environmental contraception funding from your city hall,
then get a moving van and move to a town where you CAN WIN!
