Democrats Promote Abortion as a Means to Slow Global Warming

WASHINGTON, DC, Dec 19 — Here’s one for the books: pro-abortion democrats claim that “having a child is a major contributor to climate change.” They point to an alleged scholarly theory that’s been making the rounds over the past few years.

Take Travis Rieder’s theory. He’s a Director of the Master of Bioethics degree program at the Berman Institute of Bioethics. He put in an Opinion article published by NBC some time ago that, “While I recognize that this is an uncomfortable discussion, I believe that the seriousness of climate change justifies uncomfortable conversations. In this case, that means that we need to stop pretending the decision to have children doesn’t have environmental and ethical consequences.” More recently, in an update regarding his theory, Rieder wrote that he “does not imply that any policy that restricts reproduction would be justified, but just because something shouldn’t be regulated or restricted doesn’t mean that it’s not something deserving careful ethical reflection.” 

Rieder’s not the only one seeking to promote the benefits of abortion as a critical component of dealing with climate change, notwithstanding the fact that there are thousands of authentic scientific climate change deniers. A pair of professors at Stamford University, Robert Proctor and Londa Shiebinger, the authors of a recent opinion article published by the Yale School of the Environment that promotes abortion as a means of checking global warming. Their claim: “Avoiding unwanted births — by making contraception and abortion freely available globally — would significantly reduce births and therefore (over the long term) human-generated carbon emissions. If the world’s total population were eventually reduced by 10 percent, this would reduce carbon emissions by 3.6 billion tons per year, which is more than the total combined emissions of Germany, Japan, Brazil, Turkey, Mexico, and Australia.”

Killing babies might slow down global warming and save the planet as these academics theorize, but it isn’t the reason the vast majority of women opt for legal abortions. The Guttmacher Institute says that most women choose to end a pregnancy for personal reasons such as the cost of raising a child, personal relationship problems or they feel they are too old or too young to have a dependent youngster. A recent Pew survey shows that 63% of the women who were polled said abortion should be legalized. 

Thus, you have the principal reason politically liberal lawmakers are keen to support easier abortion access, even President Biden: votes. He claims to be a “devout” Catholic yet he goes all out in support of killing unborn babies for the votes, despite the fact that his church considers abortion to be not just an ordinary sin, but a mortal sin.

He and the majority of Democrats in Congress objected vehemently against the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe vs Wade, the 50 year old Court ruling that legalized the right to abortion. They now seek other ways to make access to abortion available. Two weeks ago, Democrats introduced a bill in the Senate that would have the government [taxpayers] pay for travel, lodging, meals and the cost of pregnancy terminations in states where they are legal. And, in June, Biden’s Department of Veterans Affairs [VA] issued a ruling to provide, for the first time, taxpayer-funded abortions for eligible veterans. The VA says it took “this action because it has determined that providing access to abortion-related medical services is needed to protect the lives and health of veterans.”

However, a VA nurse practitioner, Army veteran Stephanie Carter, who has worked at the VA for 23 years, is challenging the ruling on the grounds that it violates her rights under the First Amendment. She’s being aided by the First Liberty Institute, which is asking the court to grant a preliminary injunction that would protect her religious beliefs  by preventing the rule from being enforced in Texas at the facility where Carter works.

All those who kill babies in the name of global warming will one day have to deal with unimaginable “warming” as they sit in hell because they have denied the supremacy of all mighty God. They fail to understand or accept that God alone is in control of the universe and man cannot do anything on his own to alter or change what God is in control of. It’s kind of like saying that we can turn up or turn down the sun to fit our needs. God sits in heaven and laughs.

Anyone who sincerely believes this evil doctrine and who is spreading it to others must remove themselves from existence, else they are a hypocrite.

Satanists pure and simple. Their only goal is the death of mankind. Same as Satan’s. Abortion, euthanasia, and now a vaccine that kills people. They are always in favor of death. Quit calling them democrats and leftists. They are Satanists.

I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if they were the ones being aborted. After all it would slow “Global Warming”

Global warming, now called climate change, is a complete hoax. Sadly, more than half of the population of the civilized world has been brainwashed into believing it. So it can be called “unstoppable global warming”.

It’s very hard to stop something that doesn’t exist. Perhaps they have discover perpetual motion.

Funny how these liberal minded people want to kill a baby but not a murderer.

The Dems want to depopulate for easier control of the masses, that is all. Any excuse that stupid people will believe works for their goal. Have a kid or 10, if you want, but be sure you can take care of them, mankind depends on it.

If we want to limit population growth, why are we extending benefits for babies born out of wedlock and providing all kinds of government handouts for their mothers? If we want to limit population growth, why are we allowing millions of illegal aliens to cross into the US?

Asinine comments from the left never end, do they? They just keep pushing the absurd to make the bucks and leading people to believe they actually can control climate. Look up Milankovich phases. We cannot control the variances in orbit , tilt or wobble of the earth around the sun. All three of those things determine the glacial and interglacial phases on earth. NOT PEOPLE!

With so many experiencing a colder than normal winter this fall and now winter – can’t convince us of global warming.

By who’s definition do you define normal? Extreme conditions are the normal that define the average which some insist on calling normal so they can make cash selling false remedies.

How come none of the Climate Change group that wants to get rid of people, cows, and pets leads the way by example?

Just make sure all the abortions a done on parents that are liberal. Perhaps in 10 to 20 years there will be no more liberals.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
