Had Toni Vernelli gone ahead with her pregnancy ten years ago, she would know at first hand what it is like to cradle her own baby, to have a pair of innocent eyes gazing up at her with unconditional love, to feel a little hand slipping into hers -- and a voice calling her Mummy.This is an example of "ecofeminism" at its worst.
But the very thought makes her shudder with horror.
Because when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief she was helping to save the planet. ...
... At the age of 27 this young woman at the height of her reproductive years was sterilised to "protect the planet".
Incredibly, instead of mourning the loss of a family that never was, her boyfriend (now husband) presented her with a congratulations card.
While some might think it strange to celebrate the reversal of nature and denial of motherhood, Toni relishes her decision with an almost religious zeal.
What I find interesting is that people like this have no problem sacrificing their children to "save the planet," but they never seem to think of sacrificing themselves or their sex lives. They aren't environmental heroes; they're sick, twisted, selfish individuals who are practicing child sacrifice in an effort to appease their pagan god.
