spade WV Theme...                   #4               ...individual<--->nature


I think the most basic human right is having control of what you do to your own body. So I say to narrow-minded moralists, lawmakers, etc. seeking to restrict my exercising this right: “Hands off my body!” Steps a young woman takes to insure that her body does not give birth to an unwanted child are her business, not yours. Steps a sick suffering man takes to end his own life with dignity are his business, not yours. From a global perspective, the history of life tells us some things have to die for others to live, and that our crowded planet needs fewer people, not more.

Note: With version 4.0, this theme is new to the Project Worldview theme structure in March, 2019.
As such this page may be rather incomplete or still "under construction" for quite awhile!
