Why do environmentalists care about abortion?
The Center for Biological Diversity says on their website, “Human population growth is at the root of our most pressing environmental issues.” Earlier this year, Michael Brune from the Sierra Club said during a TV interview, “[Abortion] helps to address the number of the people that we have on this planet.”
The Pontifical Academies of Science and Social Science held a conference at the Vatican in March called “Biological Extinction.” Curiously, aggressive pro-abortion advocates, Drs. Paul Ehrlich and Partha Dasgupta, were the keynote speakers. They assert that human society and the global ecosystem are collapsing. The cause? Excessive reproduction and household consumption.
This brand of environmentalism assumes that women having too many children are the cause of societal collapse therefore abortion becomes part of the solution.
But can a humane society survive by destroying its future citizens?
