. . . is a world without hope.
What would it be like if there were no more babies? What if every woman in the world were infertile and could no longer get pregnant? What if it had been over 18 years since the last baby was born?
That is not too fantastic or preposterous a question to ask in this post-Roe, anti-child age of abortion, which has claimed the lives of 50 million innocents in the last 38 years in the United States alone. What if the abortion mentality and contraceptive mentality were realized to the fullest degree? What if there were no more babies?
Theo (played by Clive Owen): I can't really remember when I last had any hope, and I certainly can't remember when anyone else did either. Because really, since women stopped being able to have babies, what's left to hope for?
Miriam (Pam Ferris*): As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children's voices.
The truth is -- it is a baby who is the savior of the world.
* I saw Children of Men a few years ago and never realized that this is the same woman who played the ghastly Miss Trunchbull in Matilda. I recognized Clare-Hope Ashitey immediately though when she was in Beyond the Gates.
