Sanders Says He Supports Discussing ‘The Need To Curb Population Growth’ To Deal with Climate Change

‘Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue?’


READYOFF: "Good evening. Human population has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it's crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of the plan to address climate catastrophe?" 
SANDERS: "Well, Martha, the answer is yes. And the answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of Americas, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions.
(Cheering and Applause)
And the Mexico City agreement, which denies American aid to those organizations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control to me is totally absurd.”
