“Forced childbirth is the single biggest cause of global warming,” Gloria Steinem said at a recent gala celebrating Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region’s 75th Anniversary.
Steinem, a prominent abortion activist in the feminist movement, gave the keynote address at the event, The Commercial Appeal reported. She used the opportunity to celebrate the nation’s largest abortion chain and push abortions.
Steinem began her 20-minute speech by promoting “reproductive rights.” She said: “Nothing but nothing is more important than ensuring our fundamental right to reproductive freedom. The principle that government power stops at our skin.”
She then went on to attribute global warming to “forced childbirth.” This comment reflects prior statements she made last year regarding Pope Francis and global warming. During an interview with Cosmopolitan, Steinem attributed global warming to the teachings of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of human life.

She said at the time, “…the human load on this earth is the biggest cause of global warming, and that is because of forcing women to have children they would not on their own choose to have…”
Steinem specifically linked global warming to Pope Francis: “I’m glad the Pope spoke out about global warming and it was very helpful, but does he know he’s causing it?”
Her answer to this is more abortions, and it fit right in with the Tennessee abortion affiliate’s goals for the evening. The Tennessee Planned Parenthood announced before Steinem’s talk that it plans to use the money raised from the event to build a second abortion facility in the area.
Steinem is exulted in liberal circles as an inspirational feminist. She constantly promotes abortion despite how abortion strips future women of their voices. This is one reason why many feminists identify as pro-life.
Patricia Heaton, a well-known actress from “The Middle” and leader with Feminists for Life, explained her pro-life view during an interview with The Blaze: “I find it impossible to subscribe to a philosophy that believes that the destruction of human life is a legitimate solution to a problem that is mostly social, economic and psychological. In reality, most women ‘choose’ abortion because they believe they have no other choice.”
Although abortion stops the heartbeats of thousands of females and continues to leave negative mental and physical effects on women, Gloria Steinem said in her speech that “there is no cause on earth more important” than giving women easy access to abortions.
