← Should Depressed People Avoid Having Children?

Silverman said this in her interview, which I think is very sensible:

We live in Los Angeles, where everybody is like, "Don't get your dog from a breeder, get your dog from a shelter..." and I agree, but don't get your people from a breeder. There are human puppies in shelters and it's odd that that never seems to be a connection that people make. If you're not OK with yourself, it's easier to love a dog than a person in need because you don't see all the things you hate about yourself reflected back in the eyes of a dog. If Africa was full of springer spaniels dying of AIDS and starvation we'd probably take care of it in a day.

Bravo Sarah.
