Thank you for sharing your experience and your perspective, Mr. Van Cleef.

I am also a "cradle Catholic" - but aside from the philosophical/religious perspective, I am also a college graduate, and I feel that we all owe something to our natural world -- in that our tiny planet has finite space & resources to support the burgeoning population of humans (and other animals). We are the sentient species, so it's our responsibility to look after the needs of our home planet, and not engage in self-serving reproduction without concern for our planet's capacity to support the millions & billions of us. If we cannot control our reproduction, our planet cannot continue to support our numbers. And we are not the only species on the planet who need a place to live and food to eat. I'm committed to compassionate care for the only world we can live on.
