In reading the posts, it certainly did not take long for some to say that Bernie is racist for saying this.

I do wonder, though, how the extreme leftists reconcile a woman's right to choose with the fact that one of their "idols" said that he wouldn't have a problem with limiting the births of Third World babies. Their little minds must be going crazy! (Even crazier than usual, I mean.)

Nothing has changed. Birth control is very much encouraged. If you think that's racist - that's on you.

sigh... yes, attitudes certainly have changed, and no, when I said "suddenly it became racist" I was describing those changes in societal attitudes toward population control in poor, fast growing countries, not expressing my own view.

First, I call bullsh on Faux News. Climate change and abortion are only marginally related, if at all. BTW it's the richer countries who both pollute and use more per capita than poor ones.

Second, abortion does not mean extinction, any more than the Duggars mean they want to use up all the planet's resources. Equating abortion to impending extinction is just a right-wing Faux fear-mongering.

Third, global warming IS a real thing. Average temperature of the globe is rising (and don't give me that line of "Hey, we got snow this year when we didn't in the last 3 or 4 years" line --- That's just weather, not climate. Climate is long term trends and patterns, weather is just daily change in atmospheric conditions.

That's just garbage slander right there!!! Stereotyping that white people from hyper-white states don't care about the well-being of others. Either present proof he is racist or he didn't say it. Ball's in your court now, skeddy.

Because in the Economically Advanced World, births already slipped below sub-replacement levels - including the United States. Also, women in the "Third World" have less access to birth control than women in the First World, or even many upper-tier "Third World" countries. This is about giving women the ability to choose to have children or not.

LOVE it! It really is a matter of WHICH humans you care about. And recognizing, rather than punishing, the challenges of people in the world IS caring.

Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood (typical oxymoron) was a devout racist who called anyone other than white "unfit".

Minorities crammed into impoverished areas in inner cities should not be having so many babies. And, of course, these minorities (including most of America’s immigrants) are inferior in the human race, as are the physically and mentally handicapped. We should require mandatory sterilizations of those less desirable and promote easy access to abortion. And since sex should be a free-for-all, we must provide birth control and abortions to teenagers too. It’s all for the greater good and for a more intelligent, liberated, healthier population. - Margaret Sanger

To this day they still set up clinics in the poorest areas. They are managing the black population. It's sick.

She is a hero to progressives, also sick.
