you guys will totally love this! i posted a message on an ivillage.com message board and got in trouble! have you ever visit these boards? the one i was on was for "family planning". most of these women have 3 or more kids. they actual post messages that talk about how their husbands don't want any more kids so the wives want to get "accidentally pregnant". one women gave a reason that she just loves babies so much that she has to have another.
this was my message: stop having so many kids!!! Base: Family Planning Keywords: family planning, one child families, environment Date: Feb 01, 09:32 am EST From: lisaterwilliger in this day and age the environmentally conscience thing to do regarding family planning is to only have one or two kids. at the rate the population is growing the earth doesn't have the resources to sustain people having 3 and more kids. if you want our kids to enjoy fresh water, open spaces and clean air, you'll take the "planning" part of family planning seriously and plan for the future. don't mean to tick anyone off (undoubtedly will) but any environmental magazine or research study will give you the same cold-hearted facts.
this is the email i got today from ivillage:

isn't that great? i sent TWO emails back to them begging them to tell me how i was being offensive and abusive but they haven't responded. bastards. i also MAY have told a little lie and said that i have two kids of my own. i feel like i had to give myself some leverage.
