Bernie Sanders Wants U.S. To Pay For Abortions In Poor Countries

            Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Colonel Bernie Sanders (I-VT) believes climate change poses such a grave risk to the planet that we must do all we can to prevent people from being born. Especially people in “poor countries.” Sen. B.S. suggested that U.S. taxpayers should be tapped to help fund birth control and abortions for women in some developing nations, to help stave off global warming.
Sen. Sanders obviously believes there is just enough of him, but way, way too many of everyone else.
He made the eugenicist-like remarks during CNN’s recent-- and virtually interminable-- “Climate Crisis Town Hall,” in which he appeared with assorted other Democratic presidential hopefuls/asshats. He added, “women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions.” This is pablum of the first order, nothing more than mental masturbation for “progressives.” No one—male or female-- has the right to do whatever they want with their own bodies, if that behavior could possibly harm others. Or themselves. None of us has the right to drive drunk or club baby seals over the head. Minors don’t even have the right to buy a pack of smokes at the local convenience store. (Though an underaged girl can get an abortion without telling her parents). I can’t hit a person who pisses me off. You can’t legally depress the gas pedal in your car and make it propel you at speeds above the limit. In some places, one person can’t even call a man a man if that man prefers to be called a woman. Progressives don’t even want us to have the right to defend ourselves.
Yet, incredibly, Sanders’ plan to alleviate global warming wasn’t even the craziest of the past week. A Swedish behavioral scientist named Magnus Söderlund, professor of marketing and strategy at the Stockholm School of Economics, spoke in favor of cannibalism at the “Gastro Summit,” a symposium on food choices and availability vis-à-vis a climate apocalypse. Söderlund’s talk was titled “Can you imagine eating human flesh?” The esteemed professor lobbied for the breakdown of taboos against the desecration of human corpses and consumption of other people’s flesh. Call me a skeptic, but this seems to me a difficult marketing strategy to execute. Moreover, though I am well versed in economic theory, I’m not sure I want to know where these supply and demand curves meet.

I’m okay with “save a horse, ride a cowboy.”

“Save the planet, eat your neighbor?” Not so much.
