A dual solution

CambriaOctober 15, 2013 

Since Congress is not doing anything productive this month, I am considering asking Senators Dianne Feinstein or Barbara Boxer to introduce the following proposal:

Whereas abortion beyond 20 weeks is forbidden in many states, and our precious planet is about to tilt due to the crushing weight of increasing homo sapiens, we suggest the following: All must abide by the oft-quoted rule “You broke it, you bought it” — if women must carry and deliver all babies, then all men must have irreversible vasectomies after siring two children.

Since it is a scientific fact that pregnancies cannot occur without male involvement (no matter what some wackadoodle conservative may say) this proposal, when it becomes the law of the land, will solve two problems, abortion and overpopulation.
