World Vasectomy Day Encourages Men to Cut … The Population

World Vasectomy Day Encourages Men to Cut … The Population

October 18th, believe it or not, is World Vasectomy Day.

According to the holiday’s designated website, World Vasectomy Day (WVD) is the “largest male-oriented global family planning event ever. The goal is to have 1,000 vasectomies performed across 25 countries in 24 hours.*”

This event, which includes live screenings of the 15-minute procedure and other such publicity methods that may seem a bit shocking to some, is in fact a noteworthy cause intended to demystify this (minor) surgical procedure and educate people about the benefits of vasectomies. WVD was organized in part to raise awareness about a man’s ability to reduce the global population boom and participate (beyond the use of condoms) in the birth control process. (Although this procedure can be reversed, it should not be thought of as a temporary birth control option.)

The global human population is now estimated to be over SEVEN BILLION and is expected to reach eight billion as soon as 2025. [1] There are also an estimated 153 million orphans living in the world today. [2] When we look at the overpopulation issues we are now facing and the number of children already in need of a family, many serious questions loom before us:

  • What responsibility does each of us have to slow the population growth?
  • If you do wish to be a parent, should you help take care of the children already on this planet before you biologically reproduce?
  • In this day and age, is choosing NOT to have a biological child in fact less selfish than choosing to have a biological child?

In their letter to men, WVD organizers state: “…making a difference in the world today and [for] the wellbeing of the planet in the future, getting a vasectomy is something you should choose, only if it’s right for you… We might all have different reasons for getting a vasectomy, but at the end of the day, for the vast majority of people the procedure puts us in a place of self-empowerment for our fertility and our fatherhood.”

This is a serious decision for any man to make and not something to take lightly, but I hope that World Vasectomy Day will cause us all to think carefully about the issues this campaign is highlighting

*The registration period for this event is over.

Jewish Rabbis Have Now Infected 14 Babies With Herpes After Sucking Their Penis: Where Is Child Protection Service? These are ONLY the ones that get reported---reporting puts you in danger in the Jewish community.

How much of YOUR TAX MONEY GOES TO ISRAEL INSTEAD OF OUR HUNGRY CHILDREN? {According to Forbes & Fortune 500, Israel is one of the TOP 10 RICHEST NATIONS ON THE PLANET} BUT YOUR KIDS SCHOOL LUNCH GOES IN THE GARBAGE IF THEY ARE 5 CENTS SHORT! AND YOU ALREADY PAID FOR THAT FOOD ANYWAY THRU THE AG BILL, YOUR TAXES! { ALL SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAXES}

All the republiKKKans care about is WHITE WOMEN HAVING BABIES! Read what they say, they constantly harp about the "BROWNING OF AMERICA" & how CAUCASIANS ARE NOW THE MINORITY--that's why they SUPPORT VIAGRA AND REFUSE TO COVER BIRTH CONTROL PILLS---they are afraid retrobution might come their way from the minority populations on voting days so FORCED WHITE BIRTHS ARE THE ANSWER..

Check how the Zionists and most Jewish religions treat their woman here in the US & in Israel, READ ABOUT THE JEWISH TORAH & TALMUD & SEE that PEDOPHELIA IS OK ACCORDING TO THEIR "BIBLES"....3 YEAR OLD GIRLS, IT'S OK WITH THEIR GODS. MORE MOLESTATION goes on IN CLOSED JEWISH GROUPS THAN ANY CATHOLIC CHURCH, any RABBI that SPEAKS OUT IS IN DANGER! They are STONED and even have bleach thrown in their faces to blind them for reporting it --the repubs have adopted ALL OF THEIR DOGMA. If THEY & YOU care about AMERICA & YOUR KIDS YOU WILL INVESTIGATE HOW DEEP ISRAEL IS INVOLVED IN OUR GOV'T. Try googling how many of our politicians are Jewish---lol, ONLY 100%!

Try this if you are a NON JEW AMERICAN: SUCK A NEWBORN BABY'S PENIS & GIVE THEM A DISEASE THAT IS SOMETIMES FATAL: http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/07/health/new-york-neonatal-herpes/ IT'S OK, ONLY SEVERAL {THAT WE KNOW OF} HAVE DIED & NO ONE IS CHARGED. http://pimppreacher.com/post/85718036780/jewish-rabbis-have-now-infected-14-
