Editorial: Abortion and global warming?

Radical feminist Gloria Steinem believes the world is suffering from “global warming” because America dragged its feet in legalizing abortion.


It’s true. This 83-year-old progressive thinks America and the planet are “overpopulated” because we have not let enough women kill their own babies before they are born.

She said, “Listen, what causes climate deprivation is population. If we had not been systematically forcing women to have children they don’t want or can’t care for over the 500 years of patriarchy, we wouldn’t have the climate problems that we have.”

In other words, because men were generally in charge, women who wanted to kill their unborn babies were prevented from doing so and that led to over population, poverty, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, drought, blizzards and anything else that other crackpot scientists attribute to human-caused climate change.

This would be worth a good laugh if it weren’t being taught as the truth to young women and men in colleges and universities all across America. This leap of logic is a desperate attempt by Steinem to justify the taking of the lives of innocent babies who are supposed to be safe in their mothers’ womb.

And you can count on the fact that the liberal media won’t point out how ridiculous Steinem’s theory is. They protect their own. “Science Guy” Bill Nye likes to say that life on Earth may have originated on Mars and none of the progressive media challenges that preposterous theory.

The world is not overpopulated. America has allowed the murder of 60 million babies and killing more babies would not stop the climate from changing.

If this is feminism, America should have no part of it.
