Sierra Club joins Planned Parenthood to Promote Abortion


The Sierra Club crisscrossed California this month for a series of conferences called Sex and the Environment. Planned Parenthood also was represented at most of the stops, the California Catholic Daily reports. The Sierra Club is pushing "global reproductive health" — abortion means fewer kids and, apparently, a healthier environment.

"The Sierra Club and Planned Parenthood are teaming up to promote their radical views on the environment and abortion," said Dawn Vargo, associate bioethics analyst for Focus on the Family Action. "The view that humans are to blame for our environmental problems has found perfect partner with the largest abortion provider in the country."

The 115-year-old Sierra Club, founded by California environmentalist John Muir in 1892 to “explore, enjoy and protect the planet,” declares on its Web site:“Sierra Club is a pro-choice organization.”

The tour was part of the Sierra Club’s Global Population and Environment Program, which aims “to protect the global environment and preserve natural resources for future generations by advancing global reproductive health and sustainable development initiatives.”

"The answer in their minds is clear," Vargo said, "environmental problems can be addressed by aborting the next generation."

As a pro-life Catholic, I cannot support this group or it's candidates. You cannot have it both ways either you're pro-choice or Catholic, one or the other.

I agree wholeheartedly with Richp. One cannot be Catholic and support anti-life groups or agendas. Yes, I believe in the "freedom to choose": choose Catholicism (and the culture of life that it defends vigorously), or choose death and admit that you are not Catholic. No one can choose both sides at the same time, since they are mutually exclusive.

So many people who want to save the environment and animals want to kill humans - it's crazy! I'm not religious, but still pro-life, and pro-environment as well - these causes do not have to be mutually exclusive.

After reading this article, I have lost all respect for the Sierra Club now.
