Re: Denver Post “Division between church, Catholics on abortion” Bermingham/11/19/08
Denver Post “Abortion schism spreads” DP 11/16/08
What the heck, let’s open up a can of worms! Let the cat out of the bag! Let’s jump on the pile! Let’s cause the Pope an Excedrin headache the size of a pumpkin throbbing around his temples. Let’s make him pay for his complicity with overpopulation in the world. He addresses environmental destruction on the worldwide scale, but he promotes unlimited births while decrying abortion. He stands against birth control, which results in millions of children that cannot be fed, water, housed or given any chance of a reasonable existence. In other words, the Pope promulgates starvation, disease, misery and human suffering on a global scale.
Yet, enlightened Catholics in the United States and worldwide practice birth control and abortion. Catholics in the U.S. practice birth control better than the Protestants. Catholic women birth 1.9 babies on average.
Yet, the Pope, Cardinals, Bishops and priests walk about in their ‘holy’ robes as if life continues in the 1st century. It does not! The human race cannot continue to go forth, multiply and take dominion over the earth. Why? Simple: we’re killing the earth with too many humans! We overload the planet’s ability to feed, water and sustain us.
Why can’t the Pope get that into his understanding? Why can’t he add 2+2=4? Why continue doctrines clearly out of step with reality in the 21st century. Why promote 5,6,7, 8, 9 and more kids when more than 10 million children under the age of 12 die of starvation or starvation related diseases around the planet annually? (Source: World Health Organization) Do the Pope’s doctrines on prohibiting birth control and then prohibiting pro-choice make any sense? How about nonsense!
If he cannot or will not make sense, let’s listen to people that espouse common sense and realistic action.
John Bermingham, founder of Colorado Population Coalition, responded to the abortion debate from a Denver Post article, “Division between church, Catholics on abortion” 11/19/08
Bermingham said, “That there is a schism among Catholics is not a surprise, but is this a private brawl or can anyone get into it? At the global level, the figures released this past October by the Alan Guttmacher Institute show one in every five pregnancies worldwide is aborted, for a global total of 43 million abortions annually. The frequency is roughly the same in both developed and developing nations.
“Compare 40 million abortions with figures for 2005 from the United Nations Population Division: 136 million births and 58 million deaths, meaning an annual increase of 78 million — roughly 1.2 percent. If there were no abortions, however, the figures would be 176 million births and 58 million deaths, meaning an increase of 138 million — roughly 2 percent.
“By 2050, the world population is likely to have jumped from 6.7 billion
today to 9.3 billion and still growing, yet today’s humans are throwing our
waste into the oceans and skies faster than nature can absorb them, consuming
key natural resources faster than substitutes can be found, and eating up the
world’s forests, fisheries and soils faster than nature can restore them.
It’s not abortion that’s a sin — it’s the lack of contraception. Wake up, Pope Benedict. Malthus is hovering above you and coming closer every day!”
Bermingham states the obvious results of lack of birth control and archaic thinking by religious leaders. The Catholic Church’s leaders follow in the footsteps of other ancient and out of touch religions like Islam, Hindu, Buddha and others that promote unlimited birth rates.
Come on folks! Humanity faces a devil of a ride if we continue on our current hyper-population growth path to add 3.1 billion by mid century to bring the cascading onslaught of humanity to 9.3 billion people. Our planet home cannot and will not tolerate such abuse!
“Democracy cannot survive
overpopulation. Human dignity cannot survive it. Convenience and decency cannot
survive it. As you put more and more people into the world, the value of life
not only declines, it disappears. It doesn't matter if someone dies. The more
people there are, the less one individual matters.”

This three minute interview with Adam Schrager on “Your Show” May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications of adding 120 million people to USA in 35 years and six million people to Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the USA in 35 years. He advances new concepts such as a “Colorado Carrying Capacity Policy”; “Colorado Environmental Impact Policy”; “Colorado Water Usage Policy”; “Colorado Sustainable Population Policy”. Nationally, the USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy" to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.
