Quaker PopOffsets (letter)

Dear Editor: Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW) has just approved a new program, Quaker PopOffsets. It’s patterned after a similar program in Britain, which collects contributions and then disperses the money to programs that either educate about family planning or provide family-planning services. Because a “non-person” has no carbon emissions, this is a very effective way to offset one’s carbon emissions. I would also like to ask you to share with Western Friend readers the minute in support of Planned Parenthood that Intermountain Yearly Meeting approved at our annual session this June. Thanks.

Quakers rejected this doctrine, and Robert Barclay called it “an invented and unscriptural barbarism”. . .

Today, the Quaker Peace Centre in South Africa conducts training for teachers on alternatives to corporal punishment in schools.
