NO abortion extremist Paul Ehrlich at the Vatican

  • 11,126

BACKGROUND

The Vatican has invited Dr. Paul Ehrlich, the undisputed father of the modern, pro-abortion population control movement to present a paper at an upcoming Vatican-run conference.

Ehrlich, author of the 1968 bestseller The Population Bomb, is scheduled to speak in Vatican City during the February 27-March 1 conference that will discuss “how to save the natural world.” 

The Stanford biologist champions sex-selective abortion as well as mass forced sterilization as legitimate methods to curb population growth. Ehrlich has also openly defended forced abortion for population control, writing that "compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.” 

It is impossible to calculate the possible millions of deaths globally this man and his ideas may indirectly be responsible for over the past five decades. 

Titled “Biological Extinction,” the conference will address what Vatican organizers call an unsustainable “imbalance” between the world’s population and what the earth is capable of producing. The event is jointly sponsored by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.

In The Population Bomb, Ehrlich forecasted “an utter breakdown in the capacity of the planet to support humanity” that would result in starvation for hundreds of millions, predictions that have proved to be false while his theories have been debunked time and again. 

In his book, Ehrlich defended sex-selection abortion as a potentially effective tool for conserving the world’s resources by reducing population, a position he defended in a 2011 interview

In a 2013 article he denounced Catholicism as “dangerous” for opposing the use of contraception and told reporters in 2015 that Pope Francis’s exclusion of population control in the environmental encyclical Laudato Si’ was “raving nonsense,” and that the pope was “dead wrong.”

Ehrlich has repeatedly attacked the Catholic Church. In 2014 he said: "The pope and many of the bishops are one of the truly evil, regressive forces on the planet, in my opinion, interested primarily in maintaining their power."

He once said that allowing women to have as many children as they desired was like letting people “throw as much of their garbage into their neighbor’s backyard as they want.”

Ehrlic’s paper will highlight “Population Numbers” as he discusses “Causes and Pathways of Biodiversity Losses.”
