WHO Wishes To Abolish Pregnancy

This might not be quite what they’re saying but in many a society this is what would happen:

Women of childbearing age should not drink alcohol, the World Health Organisation has said.

WHO officials were accused of being “sexist and paternalistic” after issuing the global advice, covering billions of women regardless of their family plans.

The WHO’s draft global alcohol action plan 2022-2030 urges countries to pay “appropriate attention to prevention” of consumption in certain groups, including children, teenagers and women of childbearing age.

The argument is that excessive consumption of alcohol in the early stages of pregnancy can lead to deformities in the fetus. Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, for example.

Well, yes, except a ban on alcohol for fertile women is likely to have the effect of no fetii to be affected. You know, given the mating habits of certain societies around the world – alcoholic lubrication so often preceding lubricity. This before we even consider how dating is done, let alone seduction.

It does seem rather confounding, really. Still, one benefit, women would now look forward to the menopause when they could have a glass. Or three.

We have enough trouble with the drugs that are at present deemed illegal. We really don’t need to repeat the American’s error with alcohol.

No, they do not wish to abolish pregnancy, merely restrict it to certain approved classes, teetotallers (very probably they prefer vegan ones) and young women seeking a “social housing” flat.

Don’t be silly; the key word is “excessive”. Not a good optic to hammer the optic routinely for ANYONE
