Abortion is important because “it helps to address the number of people that we have on this planet” so that “we can get to a sustainable population,” the president of the influential climate change body the Sierra Club told FOX News's Tucker Carlson on Thursday.
“Last year on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade you all issued a press release saying that the Sierra Club stands in solidarity – I think I’m quoting – with Planned Parenthood,” said Carlson. “Now, people feel that way, okay. What does that have to do with the environment? Why does legal abortion make the environment better?”
“Well, we believe in empowering women’s rights,” Michael Brune, the executive director of the Sierra Club, responded. “We think that, uh, women who have rights and who have the ability to have choice about their reproductive – make their own reproductive choices – uh, will help to produce strong families and will help to protect the environment at the same time. Sierra Club is pro-choice.”
“But why?” Carlson pressed him. “What does that have to do with the environment? How specifically does more abortion or legal abortion help the environment?”
“Well, it helps to address, uh, the number of people that we have on this planet,” said Brune. “We feel that one of the ways in which we can get to a sustainable population is to empower women to make choices about their own families.”
Carlson suggested the Sierra Club has been “hijacked” into “a left-wing advocacy organization” rather than one that focuses on protecting the environment. Brune defended the Sierra Club's leftist stances on immigration, transgender bathrooms, and “reproductive rights,” as “the right thing to do” and said these stances are causing a boom in membership.
“Many Sierra Club members may be gay, they may be transgender, they may be Latinos, they may even be undocumented,” said Brune. “We believe it’s important to stand up for people’s rights so that we can all stand together to advocate for a better environment.”
The Sierra Club was an official partner of the pro-abortion Women's March on Washington because “Trump's administration has proven itself to be a threat to women, immigrants, workers, LGBTQ rights, clean air and water, climate safeguards, and so many other people and places.”
The plain truth is that all these so-called environmentalist groups share the anti-human agenda of the United Nations, Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab and other global elitists. They don't just want to keep killing babies, they want to get rid of all of us!
