On the same day we sent out our alert last week on the UNFPA’s troubling adoption of climate change to promote “reproductive rights” programs, The National Post ran an article confirming our fears.
In the article, “The Real Inconvenient Truth,” Diane Francis writes:
“The ‘inconvenient truth’ overhanging the UN’s Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world.
“A planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days.”
Yes, you read that correctly. Francis is asserting that China’s disastrous one-child policy—the policy that resulted in state-sponsored, coercive sterilizations and abortions—should become “planetary law.” It seems that in order to protect the planet, the international government must become directly involved in the reproductive decisions of every world citizen and advocate the abortion of any children that exceed numerical quotas. Such a claim should give even the greatest environmental advocate a moment’s pause.
As we said in the alert, “Whenever a numerical calculation of life is used to defend a public policy, any and all who value life should be incredibly wary. The slippery slope to murder for the greater good is shorter than most imagine.”
Thank you, Diane Francis, for proving our point.
