Bioethicist Peter Singer compared women and children to cows overgrazing a field and said that women’s reproductive rights may one day have to be sacrificed for the environment. He made the remarks at the global Women Deliver Conference last week, hailed as the most important meeting to focus on women and girls’ human rights in a decade.
The controversial Princeton University professor, known for championing infanticide and bestiality, was a featured panelist on Thursday at the three-day Women Deliver conference attended by Melinda Gates and more than 4,000 abortion and contraception activists in Kuala Lumpur.
"The right to graze as many cows as you like on the common was not an absolute right," Singer is quoted as saying.
"Obviously this is what I think we ought to be saying even about how many children we have . . . I hope we don’t get to a point where we do have to override it . . . but I don’t think we ought to shrink away from considering that as a possibility," Singer said, according to LifeSiteNews.
