I had planned to do a post today comparing the rash of stories of environmentalists getting sterilized to the Shakers. However, someone beat me to it. (Via InstaPundit.)
Of course, the Shakers eschewed sex for reasons of religious purity. These new environmentalist want to keep having sex, they just don't want to further populate the planet with us evil humans. While the Shakers weren't motivated by self-loathing, it wouldn't bother me if these radical environmentalists end up going the way of the Shakers. Certainly they won't be perpetuating their beliefs the old-fashioned way.
