Stop slaughtering millions of wild animals. Animals were here first. Why isn't it inhumane to slaughter defenseless animals, yet it's inhumane to keep the human population from procreating? There are some out there that do not need or deserve to procreate. Stop them before you stop the creatures of the earth, Government!!
