Ads Telling People To Have Fewer Kids Appear In Vancouver


A series of bus ads and billboards across Vancouver has caused quite a stir this week for suggesting people have less children to quell overpopulation. The ads, purchased by U.S. nonprofit World Population Balance, feature slogans such as “the most loving gift you can give a child is not having another” and “conservation begins at contraception.” They promote the idea of having one child or no children as a way to quell overpopulation, and therefore the climate crisis. According to the group’s site, the organization was founded in 1992 to “solve the overpopulation crisis.” “Our mission is to chart a path for human civilization that – rather than causing greater misery – enables good lives on a healthy planet,” they argue.
