“Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control."

News has broken that Paul Ehrlich, a thoroughly discredited scientist and advocate of gross injustices against the poor, has been invited to speak at a Vatican conference in late February hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.
For obvious reasons, this causes great concern to anyone who cares about the poor and marginalized in the developing world. These vulnerable brothers and sisters of ours have long been targeted for extinction by those who think that, when it comes to poverty and the environment, people are the problem. Mr. Ehrlich is foremost among the false prophets of doom who consistently pit the future of the world against its poor, the latter being the obstacle to progress and environmental “sustainability.”
The fact that Ehrlich has been so spectacularly wrong in his doomsday predictions about the supposed threats of “overpopulation” has not slowed him down in the least, he still claims after all his failed prophecies that unless we can more drastically reduce population, that the environmental apocalypse is just around the corner.
We ask that Paul Ehrlich not be given a platform at the Vatican which he can use to bolster his own diminished scientific and moral credibility. His views must be directly confronted and denounced in no uncertain terms.Much more could be said about Ehrlich and his destructive campaign against the poor and disempowered, but we will let him speak for himself below. Following are quotes from just some of his works, in which he directly attacks the Catholic Church and the pope, and advocates for forced abortion, forced sterilization, and other crimes that, in large part due to his past success, are widespread today.
