Sounds ludicrous, doesn’t it? VHEMT (pronounced vehement) is a movement not an organization. It's a movement advanced by people who care about all life on planet Earth including ours. Voluntary human extinction is the humanitarian alternative to human disasters. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense.

Being a VHEMT volunteer is a state of mind. All you have to do to join is make the choice to refrain from further reproduction.

We are sure that at this point you are probably thinking “There are definitely more of us than there should be but should we become extinct?” This is quite a natural initial reaction. But if we follow a consistent chain of reasoning and common sense guided by a love and respect for all life then this would be the only logical alternative.

Please visit the pages on this forum to have a look at the VHEMT ideology and its relevance in the Indian context. For more details visit the parent website at

VHEMT meet in Mumbai
I am glad to announce that a small group of VHEMT supporters in Mumbai, India are scheduled to meet on Sunday, 3rd of October 2010 at 5 pm on the Stairs opposite Bombay Blues at Kala Ghoda, Fountain, Mumbai. This is the place where the Kala Ghoda Art Festival is held. Flyers and pamphets for the same have been distributed throughout the city.

This is with a view to create awareness of the VHEMT idea and to initiate a dialogue among potential Volunteers. Since this is a Movement and not an organisation we dont have any membership fees or hierarchy. We do not have any criteria to be a Volunteer, so EVERYONE is welcome.

In case of any clarification, please address it to this blog.

In case of any specific query, please mail it to and we would be glad to help.


  1. It's wonderful to see the beginnings of a VHEMT group in India. Best wishes on your efforts to help others achieve a new awareness. Have fun!

  2. This is a great idea, Don. I hope you reach a lot of people in India and have a great meeting in October.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  3. I like the page with all the Hindu and Buddhist teachings...

    the world is a dynamic place, and i think this is great,Don,that you are pointing out saying of relevance to the present situation...

    possibly, with religions, it is best to remind others that these things where written long ago, and it is their duty to look to the world around them to properly assign an undeniable depth of relevance...or risk shaming the author with their own neglect.

    Don,I feel you have wisely chosen that which is now relevant.

  4. Thanks, a lot for the feedback... Please feel free to mention names, there is no need for anonymity...

  5. Great work... Its high time voluntary childlessness is applied by Indians.. your work is helping to achieve this goal.. Keep it up..
