Late-Term Abortionist Pushes Population Control, Calls Human Beings a “Planetary Cancer”

Late-term abortionist Warren Hern’s writings on environmental problems may explain why he has dedicated his life to aborting unborn babies.

His research papers, some of which have been published in academic journals, refer to human beings as a “planetary cancer” on the environment.

In one paper, “Why Are There So Many of Us? Description and Diagnosis of a Planetary Ecopathological Process,” published on his website, the elderly Colorado abortionist argued that human population growth resembles cancer in multiple ways.

Warren noted that he is not the first person to compare the human population to a disease.

“Geologist Peter Flawn, speaking to students at Northwestern University in 1970, said that the earth’s crust has a skin disease, a case of microbes infecting its crust, and that sickness is man,” he wrote.

In a series of diagrams, he then compared images of Baltimore’s and London’s population expansions to the growth and shape of a cancerous tumor.

Like cancer, the human population is characterized by “rapid, uncontrolled growth” and “metastasis, or distant colonization,” he wrote. Humans also invade and destroy “normal tissue,” or other species, as their population spreads, he argued.

“Human communities, once established, tend to invade and destroy all adjacent ecosystems without limits,” Warren said.

Writing in 1989, he noted that the human population, like cancer, also “resists regulation.” As examples, he referred to the pro-life policies of President Ronald Reagan. The pro-life president took steps to protect unborn babies from abortion by defunding the United Nations Population Fund and establishing the Mexico City policy, which prohibits foreign aid to groups that promote and/or perform abortions.

Without actually stating it, Warren implied that abortion is a solution to environmental problems. He argued that his hope, aside from human extinction, is that humans will take action to reverse their population growth. But he said it is unlikely to happen.

“The idea that the human population is a planetary cancer is a profoundly disturbing conclusion, but the observations of the scientific community over the last 20 years have provided massive support for this hypothesis and little, if anything, to refute it. It is exceedingly rare that any cancer ever voluntarily or spontaneously stops being a cancer,” Warren concluded.

With that point of view, is it any wonder that Warren may think of himself as a hero? By aborting unborn babies up to birth, he is helping the environment, in his mind. By reducing the population, Warren probably thinks he is saving the planet.

Of course, Warren is correct that there are environmental problems throughout our world, and more work should be done to fix them. But his “solution” destroys human lives. An abortionist for 44 years, one can only guess how many unborn babies have died at his hands. Our world has many, many problems, but society must never solve these problems by destroying the most vulnerable and defenseless, including babies in their mothers’ wombs.
