By all means protect the environment and transition to clean energy, but do it dibetately and incrementally so that you don't wreck your economy, put multitudes out of work, suffer energy shortages and become reliant on outsiders for energy thus potentially becoming their slaves.

This is a very sad story. I'll bet that whatever prison sentence they get will be nothing compared to the feelings of regret and guilt....and then even more insignificant compared to the grief and sorrow of the poor parents. May God comfort the parents.

I could understand such reluctance in a very poor or developing country, but Japan is among the most developed in the world with high standards of living for most of the population. There's no excuse for most people. This is national suicide. Reproduce or perish Japan.

Japan self destructing because a whole generation put other concerns before reproduction. No society or civilization can survive like this. Japan is one of the most advanced nations on earth. For the vast majority of people theres just no excuse. Reproduce or fade into oblivion.

I wonder what people in the developing world, which has much higher birth rates, would think of the Japanese' attitudes towards child bearing? To them this would seem a great place to have a family. And I'd agree with them.

The term 'misinformation' is subjective.
Just because the media, elites, big biz, etc tell you something doesn't necessarily mean it's true.

Elon is kind of out there with his opinions sometimes, but I will say he's right about babies. Nations that don't at least hit the replacement rate are headed for disaster, like Japan.

Well, they certainly are a blessing for all the human beings in the womb whose lives are being saved.
Yes, they are human beings.
Separate DNA. (From conception.)
Separate chromosomes. (Also from conception.)
Separate blood supply.
Separate arms & legs.
Pregnant women don't have two of any of the above.
The unborn are clearly human beings. This is not debatable. It's not controvertible. It's undeniable biological fact.
And when we kill human beings, it's called murder.
The pro-abortion crowd always avoids the above facts. They always try to rhetorically spin their way away from them. They utter shrill, shrieking, angry, bitter wails. None of it changes the facts above, though.
I fully support every woman's (and man's) choice to either (a) abstain from sex so as to avoid pregnancy, or (b) engage in sex, but with the understanding that a pregnancy may ensue.
If (b) is the choice and a pregnancy does result, it's not a choice anymore. It's a child. Again, review the incontrovertible facts listed above.
So, to the "control my own body" crowd, if you don't want to get pregnant (ladies) or get someone pregnant (gentlemen), then ... control your body. Control your actions.
You already have reproductive rights. You have full rights over whether or not you choose to engage in the reproductive act.
If you choose to engage in it, don't be surprised if you get pregnant -- and take responsibility for it, which doesn't include intentional homicide.
Very well put.
Any response pro abortionists?

Why? Why is his voice more important than their own citizen's? Australia is losing the plot. No wonder it's quickly losing its great reputation.

Japan looks to simplify COVID survey, deal with it like seasonal flu
Common sense. They're finally realising that it's not as serious as the fear mongers told us and they don't want another yearly spike of 8000 more suicides than usual. Well done.
But let's bear in mind that the elderly and other vulnerable need strong protection.

While I sympathize with Yamagami's plight (if it's true....we haven't heard his mother's side of the story) it's absolutely no excuse for killing an innocent person. He may have experienced pain from his mother's actions but what about the death he caused Abe san and the pain inflicted on his family? -Mostly because of money.
If what he said about his mother is true, the focus of our anger should still be far more on him than on the Unification Church. He's the murderer of the innocent, they are possibly fleecers of their flock.

How many of these children died? Probably near zero. I personally don't think vaccination is necessary.

While I don't think abortion is right in the very vast majority of cases, I think applying Bill Clinton's motto would be a reasonable compromise between both sides of this issue. "Abortion should be safe, legal and rare".

There are plenty of people commenting here whose views I would consider cultish. And they probably feel the same about mine.
So how about we leave these people alone? It's a free world and everyone should be free to join whatever 'cult' or ism they choose, whether it be religious, political, environmental or otherwise.

The problem with these climate alarmists is that they base their 'trust the science' conclusions on a mixture of facts, assumptions and guesswork. How can they prove thier assumptions re temperatures, conditions and events of the distant past? They can't. It's all guesswork.
Unfortunately we and our children will have to bear the financial and social fall out of their foolishness....if we allow it. Ignore them.
