Voluntary Human Extinction

Les Knight is the founder of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement.  Yes, they literally want the human race to voluntarily go extinct.  Their less delicate motto is “feed them, don’t breed them” and their hope is that the world will recover in our absence.  He didn’t seem to have a strategy for the world once all the humans are gone.  Of course, abortion is central to their plan, and the demise of Roe was counter to their plan.  Knight said abortion is “the most important thing we need today.”  The group also supports euthanasia.  All this flies in the face of true population experts, who say the world is facing a depopulation crisis – that is a population implosion, not explosion.  Many countries are taking an active role to increase their populations.
