Robert Creamer--Democrat strategist, Obama 2008 campaign aide, and political architect of ObamaCare--argues that the new contraceptive mandate for Catholic institutions isn’t really about equality for women, or religious liberty.
Rather, it is about population control.
Creamer--like his wife, the pro-abortion Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL)--embraces the left-wing fallacy that children are a burden on the planet, which the state should encourage the church--and everyone else--to limit.
At 6:16-7:03 in the video below, by CNS News, Schakowsky describes abortion as "most often" a "responsible decision" to control the size of their families:
Writing in the Huffington Post yesterday, Creamer declared:
...[T]here is a worldwide consensus that the use of birth control is one of society’s most important moral priorities. Far from being something that should be discouraged, or is controversial, the use of birth control is critical to the survival and success of humanity....It is simply not possible for this small planet to sustain that kind of exponential human population growth. If we do, the result will be poverty, war, the depletion of our natural resources and famine. Fundamentally, the Reverend [Thomas] Malthus was right--except that the result is not inevitable....That’s why it is our moral imperative to act responsibly and encourage each other to use birth control.
It is precisely because radical socialists like Creamer, Schakowsky and Obama detest the free economy that they continue to rely on old Malthusian and Marxist ideas.
Regardless, the indication by Creamer that the contraception mandate is not about “equality,” but population growth, suggests that the Obama administration’s challenge to the beliefs of the Catholic church may be more direct--and deliberate--than was previously suspected.
