BBC: Bernie Sanders in climate change 'population control' uproar [View all]

The question was about: "Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact."

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-49601678

Mr Sanders, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination to face President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election, replied: "Well, Martha, the answer is yes.

"The answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies, and make reproductive decisions.

"The Mexico City Agreement which denies American aid to those organisations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control to me is totally absurd.

"So I think, especially in poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies, and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very, very strongly support."
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
