I read about this noble woman over the weekend, as did many of you. For an excellent exposition of the illogical stupidity of sterilizing yourself on behalf of the Earth, go here. Couldn't have said it better myself.
I've read about people like this woman before and I always have two reactions:
Why oh why are these people NEVER willing to follow their Sanctimonious Humans Are An Awful Blight Upon The Earth premises to their logical conclusion and just off themselves already?
Hooray that they have taken some of The Crazy out of the gene pool. In doing so, humanity will be better off in the long run, which is good for the rest of us. Also, removing themselves from the gene pool somewhat diminishes their whole point in sterilizing themselves, thus leaving behind breeders such as myself who don't mind being a Blight Upon The Earth and will certainly pass along those genes and values to our offspring. Which of course makes the whole matter even funnier.
