The Pregnancy Problem

So pregnant women die on the island during the third trimester. Terrible. But why the hell was that such a big deal to Ben? Why didn’t The Others just stock up on Dharma condoms and jet off to the mainland in their submarine if they wanted to conceive? Was this really worth nabbing pregnant women in their sleep, and murdering anyone who got in their way?

Didn’t a community of people taking orders from an immortal, who protected a mystical island, have better experiments and such to focus on? What this really exemplifies is that The Others were really just douchebags to the unnecessary extreme. Maintaining secrecy is one thing, but not randomly abducting people and blowing up boats really would’ve resulted in less death on both sides.
