Children should be seen as a ‘blessing’, not an ‘environmental burden’

Children should be seen as a blessing and not a burden on the environment, says Jim Daly of Focus on the Family in response to a group that awarded Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, among others, for committing to have no more than two children or none at all.

On World Population Day, the London-based group Population Matters, which pushes for abortion rights and population control, awarded the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with the “Change Champions” award for “choosing and publicly declaring their intention to limit their family to two” and ” … for taking this enlightened decision, and for affirming that a smaller family is also a happy family.”

The group also awarded five other individuals and three groups for “promoting reproductive rights, defending the environment and enlightening the public.”

Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, a Chrisitan and socially conservative public policy organization, told The Christian Post in an emailed statement on Friday that parents shouldn’t view their children from a secular lens that demeans humanity.

“Family formation is a very personal decision between husbands and wives. We believe strongly that children are not a burden on the environment, but a blessing on so many levels,” Daly said.

“My wife and I also had only two children — should we get an award too? But my greatest regret is that we didn’t have more — a truth which makes our two boys smile,” he added.
