Just when you think you’ve heard it all, you say to yourself, could that have actually been said? It’s really sick when you think about it.
Today on the show we discussed Sen. Bernie Sanders saying that if we increase abortions we’re going to save the planet.
Think about that for a moment. He basically said kill the children to save the planet.
This is what’s coming out of the mouths of presidential candidates. The Left has bought so completely into abortion that they are now tying it to climate change.
Here’s the question Bernie Sanders was asked at the Democrat Forum on Climate Change:
“Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it's crucial to face," an audience member asked. "Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?”
Notice the question did not directly address abortion. However, Bernie could not resist immediately tying abortion to climate.
The answer is yes and the answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions. And the Mexico City agreement, which denies American aid to those organizations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control to me is totally absurd. So I think especially in poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very, very strongly support.
So the Left wants to kill babies to protect the environment?
I want clean air and clean water. What I don’t want to do is kill unborn babies to get there. There are conservative ways to protect the environment. It is called conservation, the solution is not abortion.
This is depraved and sick.
Jordan correctly pointed out during the show that Bernie Sanders also totally mischaracterized the Mexico City Policy during his depraved comments, claiming it prevents women from gaining access to birth control.
It does not prevent that. What it does do is prevent your taxpayer dollars from paying for abortions overseas.
The truth, as ACLJ Senior Military Analyst Wes Smith so correctly observed, the Left will do anything to link their issues to abortion. “We’ve said it many times, the Left worships at the altar of abortion.”
We at the ACLJ are front and center in the fight for life. We’ll be in federal court next month in California in a major abortion related case.

As we take on the abortion industry at the Supreme Court and fight to save babies, we urgently need your support. Donate to defend life.
Sidewalk counselors share the good news of the sanctity of human life where that message needs to be heard the most: right outside the doors of abortion facilities. These counselors, who suffer the insults of clinic “escorts” and all types of weather, are unspoken heroes of the pro-life movement.
