The Most Loving Act on Valentine’s Day
It’s Valentine’s Day and romance is in the air. Every year at this time I feel it’s a good time to remind loving couples of the most loving and compassionate act they can take – being very intentional about when and whether they conceive a child, and making the informed, responsible decision to have a zero, one or – at most, two – child family.
Why? Because on a full planet, overpopulated at 7.2 billion, we need to do all we can to give our kids a shot at living good lives. Adding 8, or even 4, kids to the population doesn’t improve their odds.
Lynsey and I were discussing this the other day and she turned me on to www.someecards.com, so we each made one. Funny how I didn’t really think hers was all that great. And she thought hers was better than mine. Usually Lynsey is the hip and trendy one. So, what do you think? Can you do better?
It’s not a contest, but we’re going to spend the day celebrating the love that goes into responsible family-size decisions, on this, the most romantic day of the year. So we encourage you to make your own ecard and send it to us (dave at growthbusters.org or lynsey.jones at growthbusters.org) or just post it on the GrowthBusters facebook page. I’ll copy them all to this blog as the day goes on. Feel free to vote, just to express your appreciation for the best ones.

And here’s an excellent one from Lynsey:
But I think my final creation of the day takes the cake!
