The mainstream media has decided to collectively hide 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders proposed population control /climate change solution.
His remedy in solving those issues would be to embrace government-funded abortions abroad at the tax payer’s expense. That stunning admission Wednesday night during CNN’s Climate Town Hall televised event raised more than a few eyebrows.
The incident began when a member of the audience asked the Vermont Senator would he support measures to curb population growth in order to protect the climate. Without hesitation the 78-year old socialist responded “yes…especially in poor countries around the world, is something I “very, very strongly support.”
The audience member then added that “the planet cannot sustain this growth” and “empowering women and educating everyone” on curbing the population seems “reasonable.”
Sanders again responded that he supports women being able to “control their own bodies” and have abortions in relation to the climate change question.
Adding, “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.”
Sanders then pivoted to the Mexico City agreement and his support to use American tax payer’s funds for abortions conducted in foreign countries exclaiming “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: something I very, very strongly support.”
Thus far Sanders is the only candidate advocating abortion as a political policy in combating climate change and as a means of population control.
As of the today, the mainstream media has yet to interview Sanders regarding his newly articulated extremist views.
Sanders – when asked recently by Fox host Martha MacCallum his views regarding late-term abortions – said the government didn’t have a right to keep someone from having a late-term abortion.
Responding to MacCallum’s question Sanders said “no one should tell a woman what to do with her own body,”
MacCallum fired back, “With regard to abortion, do you believe that a woman should be able to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment of birth?”
“Look, I think that happens very, very rarely, and I think this is being made into a political issue,” Sanders responded. “Okay, so I think it’s rare, I think it’s being made into a political issue, but at the end of the day, I believe that the decision over abortion belongs to a woman and her physician, not the federal government, not the state government, and not the local government.”
The question by MacCallum was in response to a proposed bill by Sanders if he became President that would provide “Medicare for all.”
The bill as planned would provide free coverage of “comprehensive reproductive, maternity, and newborn care,” however the wording is quite ambiguous perhaps by design, in that it doesn’t mention abortion anywhere within the bill, however, when pressed further by MacCallum, abortion would indeed be covered under the plan.
Let’s be clear aside from creating an egregious policy using abortions as a mechanism for population control and combating climate change, a “PRESIDENT SANDERS” would also us tax payer’s funds to pay for worldwide abortions.
