"Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming. He says political leaders and green campaigners should stop dodging the issue of environmental harm caused by an expanding population.
A report by the commission, to be published next month, will say that governments must reduce population growth through better family planning... Porritt, a former chairman of the Green party, says the government must improve family planning, even if it means shifting money from curing illness to increasing contraception and abortion."
The real agenda behind the faux-environmentalist cult is profoundly anti-humanist, and has always been. Population reduction is the underlying goal. However, the one true method of reducing population growth (where it exists at all) will not be on offer.
Economic development and increasing the educational standards of women reduces the number of children born, but the malthusian devotees of Gaia are hell-bent on preventing the Third World from developping. Instead they pursue other strategies, such as forced sterilisation, for killing off the so-called useless eaters. According to Porritt:
"...we still have relatively high levels of pregnancies going to birth, often among women who are not convinced they want to become mothers."
Porritt thinks he knows the mind of pregnant women better than they do, and advocates abortion by default it seems.
