EVIL IDIOCY: Abortion Icon Gloria Steinem: Abortion Necessary To Combat Climate Change

By  Hank Berrien

If only millions more women had aborted their children we wouldn’t have to worry about “climate change,” according to abortion icon Gloria Steinem. Steinem, 83, gave an interview in which she hilariously argued that climate change is a “feminist issue” because of world overpopulation, thus the overwhelming need to kill babies.

Steinem was asked, “People argue that climate change and other issues are also feminist issues. What do we lose by broadening the meaning of the term?”

Her addled response:

Are you kidding me? Listen, what causes climate deprivation is population. If we had not been systematically forcing women to have children they don’t want or can’t care for over the 500 years of patriarchy, we wouldn’t have the climate problems that we have. That’s the fundamental cause of climate change. Even if the Vatican doesn’t tell us that. In addition to that, because women are the major agricultural workers in the world, and also the carriers of water and the feeders of families and so on, it’s a disproportionate burden.

Steinem, of course, was a champion of the T-Shirt emblazoned with “I had an abortion” on it; she once said, “You can’t be a feminist who says that other women can’t and criminalizes abortion. 1 in 3 American women needs an abortion at some time in her life …” In 2015, discussing an abortion she had had as a young woman, she stated, “It gave me my life. I mean, I wouldn’t have been able to live my life otherwise.”
