British Mother Aborts Her Unborn Baby to Save Planet

A British woman who was pregnant 10 years ago had aborted her unborn child to help save the environment.

A British woman who had an abortion 10 years ago and was later sterilized did so because she believes pregnancy is bad for the environment, the London Daily Mail reported Sunday.

Toni Vernelli, 35, hopes her actions would ensure her carbon footprint would be kept to a minimum, the Mail reported. The environmental advocate also sees having children as an egotistical act.

'Having children is selfish. It's all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet,' Vernelli told the Mail, adding she believes bringing new life into the world only adds to the problem.

Considering she has a "no-child" policy in effect, does this amount to an environmentalabortion?
