Democrat presidential candidate and avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has aligned himself with those who think that babies are nasty little carbon emitters and need to be eliminated in large numbers to save the planet. He has endorsed taxpayer funding of abortions around the world as part of a plan to combat overpopulation and fight climate change.
His startling proposal came in response to a questioner at CNN’s seven-hour climate town hall, who suggested that “the need to curb population growth”–that is, population control–was a way “to address climate catastrophe.”
He jumped up out of his seat and practically shouted, “Yes!” He went on to claim that poor women around the world were having lots of babies they didn’t want.
Actually, women in poor countries, like women everywhere, pretty much have the number of children they want. Unless of course they live in a country which practices population control. Take China, for example, which for decades has dictated to women how many children they can have–one–and when they can have it.
A new documentary called One Child Nation explains how this worked in practice in China. Bernie should watch it before proposing population control as a “solution” to global warming–or anything else, for that matter.
The documentary details the 35 years of suffering that Chinese women and girls endured under the policy, which ended in 2015.
