Two for One

Diane Francis of The Financial Post wants the entire planet to adopt China’s one-child policy in an effort to “reverse the disastrous global birthrate.” Says Francis:
China has proven that birth restriction is smart policy. Its middle class grows, all its citizens have housing, health care, education and food, and the one out of five human beings who live there are not overpopulating the planet.
What Francis forgot to mention in her piece, however, is that she herself just happens to have two children, according to her own blog.

So, Ms. Francis, if you had to execute one of your children to save the planet, who would it be?
