Voluntary Human Extinction Movement
Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (abbreviated VHEMT) is a movement which advocates the voluntary extinction of humankind. The movement was founded by Les U. Knight. The movement's members do not advocate illegal methods like murder or suicide, instead supporting a complete end to human reproduction, which will ultimately result in the extinction of humankind. Thus, they use the slogan "phasing out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed". The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement is based on the belief that the Earth will be better without human beings. It is primarily based in San Francisco. The motto of the VHEMT is "May we live long and die out".
