BirthStrikers are a demographic of people, primarily women, who have pledged to not have biological children due to the current state and prognosis of climate change.


While the "movement" is ambiguous,[1] the name is credited to British musician Blythe Pepino, who started a blog about it as a form of a support group.[2]

Freshman United States Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brought media attention to the movement after an Instagram Live video.[3]


The African country of Niger has the highest birth rate in the world (7:1) yet produces one of the least carbon emissions rates of any nation. According to Conceivable Future, an American organization that studies how climate change is affecting reproductive choices, it is not the population's fault but rather how the average United States citizen consumes resources that is exacerbating climate change.[1]
