Save the Planet! Kill Babies!
World leaders gathered in Rio de Janeiro this week, intent on saving the planet from the scourge of global climate something-or-other (the current buzzword is “sustainable development,” which really doesn’t mean the same thing, but has the advantage of masking the intentions almost completely). So as the high mucky-mucks were deciding on how humanity should go about controlling the weather or sustainably developing or whatever, guess what came up? The Moloch religion’s answer to everything. The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute reports:
Admitting a stinging defeat, political leaders joined abortion and population control advocates this week to express outrage over the omission of the term “reproductive rights” from the outcome document produced at the UN’s Rio +20 conference on sustainable development last week.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed heads of state on the last day of the conference and pointed out where the battle had been lost. “[W]hile I am very pleased that this year’s outcome document endorses sexual and reproductive health and universal access to family planning” she stated, “to reach our goals in sustainable development we also have to ensure women’s reproductive rights.”
Though reproductive health is mentioned six times and in three different paragraphs, many lamented that in their view without a mention of reproductive rights, a term that abortion proponents use as synonymous with abortion, the document could not be counted as a victory for women’s rights or sustainability.
That’s right: according to Hillary Clinton and a herd of others, abortion is one of the answers to global warming. I kid you not:
The Women’s Major group which represents over 200 different women’s organizations at the United Nations, went as far as claiming that the absence of reproductive rights meant that “two years of negotiations have culminated in a Rio+20 outcome that makes almost no progress for women’s rights and rights of future generations in sustainable development.”
I’m not sure exactly how you have “future generations” if your primary obsession is with killing them off. They probably meant “future white generations,” because as Margaret Sanger said, the problem all along has been too “inferior stock”:
Throughout the two-week conference, International Planned Parenthood Federation and other groups sponsored events explicitly linking reproductive rights and population control, especially in developing countries.
You knew Planned Parenthood would be in here somewhere. You just knew it.
Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime minister of Norway, was one of the creators of the notion of sustainable development twenty-five years ago, and has been unabashed in making the connection, warning “the only way to respond to increasing human numbers and dwindling resources is through the empowerment of women.”
She went on to say, “regrettable is the omission of reproductive rights – which is a step backwards from previous agreements,” and concluded that “the Rio+20 declaration does not do enough to set humanity on a sustainable path.”
“The empowerment of women”...to kill their children. That’s what’s going to lead us to a “sustainable path.” Why do I feel more and more everyday like I’ve wandered into a George Orwell or Aldous Huxley novel?
Also criticizing the exclusion of terms was Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and chairman of the Aspen Institute’s Global Leaders Council for Reproductive Health.
She’s also the former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Go figure.
She stated, “we have not been able to mainstream the issue of family planning into this conference at Rio de Janeiro. That is a mistake. Population growth in poor countries has become a global problem, one with long-term implications for the economic, environmental and political health of the entire world.”
That’s the problem. Too many “little brown babies,” as Ingrid Bergman called them in Murder on the Orient Express. If we could just get these colored people to stop breeding like rabbits, the whole world would look like Ireland or Norway. Or Margaret Sanger’s neighborhood.
