Lib Professors Says Women Should Not Have Children to Save the World From Global Warming
Liberals are always the first ones to claim that they’re “pro-choice”, but in reality, the only choices they allow are the ones that they approve of. Notorious bioethicist and college professor Peter Singer is a perfect example: at a recent conference, he made the argument that women may one day need to be forcibly sterilized in order to save the environment.
Bioethicist Peter Singer compared women and children to cows overgrazing a field and said – at the global Women Deliver Conference last week, hailed as the most important meeting to focus on women and girls’ human rights in a decade – that women’s reproductive rights may one day have to be sacrificed for the environment.
The controversial Princeton University professor, known for championing infanticide and bestiality, was a featured panelist on Thursday at the three-day Women Deliver conference attended by Melinda Gates and more than 4,000 abortion and contraception activists in Kuala Lumpur.
Singer said that since the world’s affluent are not likely to restrain their high rate of consumption compared to the world’s poor any time soon, and since it’s possible that family planning efforts may “turn out to be not enough…we ought to consider what other things there are that we can do …in order to try stave off some of the worst consequences of the environmental catastrophes…”
“It’s possible of course, that we give women reproductive choices, that we meet the unmet need for contraception but that we find that the number of children that women choose to have is still such that population continues to rise in a way that causes environmental problems,” he said. Women have more children because of their “ideological or religious views.”
Singer added that “greenhouse gases… are getting very close to a tipping point,” and climate change could become a “catastrophe and cause hundreds of millions or billions of people to become climate refugees.”
In that case, he said, “we need to consider whether we can talk about trying to reduce population growth and whether that’s compatible with the very reasonable concerns people have about women’s right to control their life decisions and their reproduction.”
It’s shocking that Singer could make arguments such as these, considering that his parents narrowly escaped being sent to a concentration camp in Germany, and his grandparents were killed in the camps. For someone whose family underwent such atrocities, to champion such similar ones is truly horrifying.
