Double Standard Illustrated

A wild horse herd increases from 200 to 300 animals in three years, a 14.5% annual growth rate.  The government removes 100 horses at the end of year three, leaving 200 on the range.

Another herd has 200 wild horses and does not grow over the three year period, thanks to the advocates, who limit the birth rate.  At the end of three years there are 200 horses on the range.

Both cases yield the same results.  The government got rid of the horses with helicopters while the advocates got rid of them with contraceptives.

The first case is condemned while the second case is acclaimed.

That is the double standard.

Contraceptives can’t shrink a herd from 300 to 200 horses in three years.
