Natural selection isn’t nice, but it is necessary, Morning sickness bad enough to make a woman out seek medication == unhealthy woman and/or unhealthy fetus. Same as post partum depression and post partum psychosis.

That being said, those responsible for these things should have been executed once the results came out.

This is not an example of natural selection.

Sure, by itself. However, it’s part of the pruning that’s been going on in the US.

I'm curious what you mean. Are you implying that people are deliberately killing off certain segments of the population? If so, we mustn't allow them to avoid blame by citing evolution.

I mean that those who trust and submit themselves to the US medical industry (and food supply) are being selected against. They are increasingly dying younger, having fertility issues, and having defective children and no grandchildren. This has nothing to do with avoiding blame.

If it's a concerted effort then of course the perpetrators are to blame and not natural selection. It's like blaming AI for a planned takedown of the middle class.

Natural selection is just describing the process of population change in response to environmental pressures. Humans and their various groups and agendas are part of the environment.

It’s possible to blame a group and also recognize that its methods affect the/a population’s demographics/dispositions, thus falling under natural selection.

I'd disagree on post partum depression. The body gradually increases feel good/painkilling neurotransmitters during pregnancy, so when the mother goes into labour she is naturally high enough to deal with the pain of child birth. Then the body goes back to normal levels of those neurotransmitters, which feels like withdrawal.

When I was a kid I saw a man who played guitar with his feet because of this. It was the first thing I thought of when they rushed out the shots.
