Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders, is getting blasted by conservatives after he said he would be “open to discussing population control as a means to combat climate change.”

Bernie made the comments on Wednesday during a climate town hall on CNN after he was asked about rising populations and how the planet “can not sustain this growth.”

The questioner, identified by CNN as a teacher named Martha Readyoff, said that she realized linking population control to climate was a topic “poisonous for politicians, but it’s crucial to face,” as reported by The Hill.

“Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” she asked of Bernie during the town hall.

“Well, Martha, the answer is yes,” Bernie replied. “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 aide to those organizations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control to me is totally absurd,” Bernie continued. “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.” (Continued Below)

Bernie’s comments quickly sparked outrage from conservative lawmakers and media talking figures:

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) responded on Twitter Thursday morning: “Bernie Sanders wants to prevent disadvantaged populations from reproducing by forcing taxpayers to help poor people across the world kill their children. This is sickening. And Prejudiced.”

House Republican Whip, Steve Scalise (R-LA), expressed, “During CNN’s #ClimateTownHall, Bernie Sanders said YOUR tax dollars should be used to fund abortions in foreign countries to reduce population size. Are you kidding?? That’s horrifying, and tells you just how little regard radical liberals have for innocent life.”

GOP Chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel declared, “Just when you thought the Democrat Party couldn’t be any more extreme on abortion. Bernie Sanders wants American taxpayers to fund abortions in foreign countries to control population growth. So much for ‘safe, legal and rare’! (Video Below)

McDaniel added, “Yesterday we learned Bernie used a racial slur in his 2015 book. Then he called for aborting more minority babies in poor countries to limit population growth – all so rich liberals can feel better about running the A/C. How much MSM coverage did his racism get? Zero.”

Even CNN host S.E. Cupp was disgusted and asked, “How do you not say unequivocally “NO” to the question of whether you support the idea of ‘curbing population growth’ through abortion to reduce climate change??? Well, watch. This is apparently how.

“Let’s just state for the record: talking about needing “population control” through ABORTION for the sake of CLIMATE is talking about EUGENICS. The fact that @BernieSandersis willing to entertain this vile idea is not only disgusting, it should be disqualifying,” she expressed.

Liz Wheeler, host of “Tipping Point” on OANN, tweeted, “Imagine being so disgusting that you want to force Americans to pay for abortions to kill brown babies in foreign countries so you don’t feel guilty flying private jets & visiting communist nations. Meet @BernieSanders. He’s that disgusting.”

Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, wrote, “Did you know: Bernie Sanders spent $300,000 in one month on private jet travel But instead of giving up his private jet to lower carbon emissions, he would rather abort babies This is the current state of the Democrat party.”

Judge Jeanie Pirro tweeted an article from the Daily Caller entitled, “Bernie Sanders Says Abortion Will Help Fight Climate Change”. The Judge pleaded, “God help us…”

Tony Shaffer wrote, “This is absolutely racist – real racism -@BernieSanders wants to kill foreign populations – this is a eugenics madman’s perspective – this is who the Progressives really are -this is what the Nazis wanted to do – control or eliminate other cultures”

“Fox & Friends” co-host, Pete Hegseth, tweeted: “Using “climate change” to justify killing more unborn babies is a new low, even for socialist @BernieSanderss.”

Jessie Jane Duff, who works for the Trump Campaign Advisory Board said, “If a Republican said we should use abortion to control another country’s population, they’d be accused of supporting genocide against an entire religious, ethnic & racial group of people. Meanwhile, Bernie will get a pass from the Democrats because they actually agree with him.”
