It always comes back to the unborn, because they are the worst.

To the Left, the unborn stop the lives of teenagers and adults mid-sentence, just as they’re becoming something. The unborn strain finances, cause exhaustion, and sometimes are nothing but a reminder that criminal sexual assault has been committed. Now they can be blamed for environmental destruction.

Well-known pro-abort harpie, Gloria Steinem, said as much at a 75th anniversary dinner for the Memphis chapter of Planned Butcherhood Parenthood recently. As reported by Life News:

“Forced childbirth is the single biggest cause of global warming…”

This comment reflects prior statements she made last year regarding Pope Francis and global warming. During an interview with Cosmopolitan, Steinem attributed global warming to the teachings of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of human life.

She said at the time, “…the human load on this earth is the biggest cause of global warming, and that is because of forcing women to have children they would not on their own choose to have…”

Yes. “Forced childbirth” is to blame for the supposed plight of polar bears as they sit on those melting blocks of ice. Therefore, according to her, abortion should be promoted. Abortionists will be saving the planet as they’re scraping out those money-making uteruses.

Yet again, this shows the abortion industry’s complete dismissal of that which precedes a positive pregnancy test: choice. The vast majority of pregnancies are a result of neither rape nor incest. (Even pregnancy that is a result of those criminal acts should not end through abortion.) The Left brands itself as the “party of science”, but dismisses biological fact. At conception, a unique individual is formed. Unless you’re Mary, mother of Jesus, you know exactly how the baby arrived in the womb.

Furthermore, if childbirth is to blame for all this supposed global warming that’s happening, shouldn’t it apply to all births, not just “forced”? After all, children born the “unforced” way also drive cars, ride on planes, use hairspray, turn on too many lights at home, own superyachts (that’s you, Leo DiCaprio), and own cows. They’re the worst, too.

We’re well aware of the fiction coursing through the Left’s discussion of our planet’s soon-to-be demise. We’re also aware that Steinem, and others, slobber over any reason they can use to justify abortion. Placing blame on the shoulders of the unborn is a convenient way to advance any liberal talking point. The irony is that while they promote the health of our planet, they’re keen to destroy its life.
