Latest in Liberal tripe: Contraception prevents Global Warming

Just in case you thought liberalism wasn't evil, check out this particularly evil, liberal position. Apparently, taxpayer-funded contraception is good for the environment because it leads to fewer people less carbon on planet earth.

Via the Daily Caller:
During a discussion series on Monday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., speaker and activist Kavita Ramdas argued that contraceptives should be part of a strategy to save the planet, calling lower birth rates a “common sense” part of a climate-change reduction strategy.

At the event, titled “Women’s Health: Key to Climate Adaptation Strategies,” Ramdas pointed to studies conducted by health consultants at the for-profit Futures Group, the government-funded National Center for Atmospheric Research and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, in Austria, to connect contraception with climate change.

Ramdas told The Daily Caller that the research shows “empowering women to time their pregnancies” and avoid unwanted births would reduce carbon emissions between 8 to 15 percent globally.
Uh, huh. Are there actually people so brainwashed that they can't connect the next dot here? So if you start from the premise that fewer people equals a healthier environment for the earth, doesn't that necessarily mean that you believe human beings are a nuisance at best and evil at worst? Well, apparently Ramdas has a different view.
“It is common sense that when women are able to plan their pregnancies, populations grow more slowly and as a result so do greenhouse gas emissions,” she explained. “Providing access to contraception and preventative health should be one of the many effective strategies used to fight climate change.”

Ramdas is also executive director of the Program on Social Entrepreneurship at Stanford University.
Interestingly, Ramdas is also a Sikh Muslim who is featured prominently on the Wise Muslim Women website.

I have a question. If Ramdas is considered to be a "wise Muslim woman," why is she subscribing to the notion that fewer infidels people is good for the planet? Whoever considers that a wise point of view is either intellectually vacant or deceptively evil.

Considering that Islam is home to things like taqiyya, perhaps we should consider the latter option first.
