Connecting the wrong dots

Saw a picture in the paper of a PETA activist in India dressed in a dog outfit giving a talk on spaying/neutering one's pets. On a blackboard was written in large letters:

Animal + Birth + Control = HAPPY DOGS
It's time to sterilize all dogs!

And so the following came unbidden to my mind:

Human + Birth + Control = HAPPY PEOPLE
It's time to sterilize all people!

This has nothing to do with the fact that my young nephews have come to visit for a few weeks, honest. Well, maybe just a little. Ahem.
