Birth control should be encouraged


Compliments to New Times for carrying its first birth control ad (March 24, page 5). I hope we will now be seeing ads for condoms, vasectomies, and emergency contraceptives.

Human numbers have exploded. It took a million to reach our first billion in 1800, over 100 years to reach our second billion in 1930, third billion in 1960, fourth billion in 1974, fifth in 1987, and 6 billion in 1999. We have done much too well at being "fruitful and multiplying." We are devouring the planet.
