Al Gore Encourages Women To Have Fewer Children In Order To Curb Pollution
Here’s what Gore said in a recent appearance in New York:
“One of the things we could do about it is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of the principle ways of doing that is to empower and educate girls and women,” Gore said. “You have to have ubiquitous availability of fertility management so women can choose how many children have, the spacing of the children.
“You have to lift child survival rates so that parents feel comfortable having small families and most important — you have to educate girls and empower women,” he said. “And that’s the most powerful leveraging factor, and when that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices and more balanced choices.”
No doubt this audience was mostly white liberals. Now I would love to see Gore go into a rough neighborhood in Detroit (which is probably most of that city) and tell an audience of welfare recipients and drug addicts the same thing. Or how about a meeting of the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund. Of course that would never happen in a million years, since we’re talking about Democrat voters with both examples. But still if any white politician were to tell these groups to have fewer children, all hell would break loose.
