Earth Day = Forced Abortions?

Many environmentalists thought they were celebrating Earth Day yesterday to encourage people to tread a little lighter on the earth. You know, turn off some lights and conserve some energy. In fact, we were all being duped into “a calculated attack on the sanctity of human life,” writes Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council’s Washington Update. That’s right. According to Perkins, environmentalism is a philosophy based on forced abortions and sterilization. He writes, “we must realize that there's a greater threat to the environment than climate change or scarce resources—and that's the threat of environmental extremism that elevates the planet above people.”

Geez. I hoped we were finally done with this kind of talk from religious right world, what with Pat Robertson appearing in pro-take-global-warming-seriously ads w/ Al Sharpton. Oh well.
