What I Wanted to Say, but Chose Not To

Referring back to the question on Donatism and Contraception, I wanted to make a observation about the overpopulation causing starvation comment but ran short of space. And given what I wanted to say, maybe it is better this way.

This is what I wanted to say:
"On the issue of overpopulation and starvation, I know an equally viable and more profitable way to bring that to a close. The world governments can set a mandatory death date of 60.5 years. On that day, the government agency will euthanize you for no charge in the presence of all your loved ones. Think of all the money we would save on medical care for you. Then after your loved ones leave, we will send your corpse to a rendering plant where it will be turned into a savory paste. It would be chock full of protein and other nutrients. Then, the governments can distribute this paste to all the starving people. Now, after you pick up your jaw, I want you to think about the logic of my statement. I used the same contraceptive logic against the elderly that some would suggest being used against the unborn. If you aren't a person in the womb, and you are not supposed to be the product of a married couple's conjugal union, then a person is simply a means to an end rather than a good in itself."
