Another scary overpopulation prophet speaks

A former Planned Parenthood director and present overpopulation lunatic is saying that Obama's plan to force all insurance companies to cover contraception and abortifacients without a co-pay is saying it's just a good start ... you know, kind'a like China's one-child policy.

I won't bore you with the whole letter from former Planned Parenthood Director Norman Fleishman. I'll cut right to the worst nugget he wrote in The Napa Valley Register:
Unless we act (this legislation, along with China’s “one child” policy, is a start [???!]), the world is doomed to strangle among coils of pitiless exponential growth.
The sad part is that you know he worked on that phrase "strangle among coils of pitiless exponential growth." He's probably real proud of it too.
 So okay, this nugget has been making the rounds, from Weasel Zippers to my friend Lisa Graas to Matt and Pat Archbold. Lisa makes the following point:

Will Planned Parenthood denounce this statement from Fleishman? No, because this is what Planned Parenthood is really about. Planned Parenthood receives a great deal of funding from pro-abortion population control activists, including Bill Gates and many others.
 At the end of the day, Lisa's right: "Freedom of choice" is simply a ride Planned Barrenhood hitched to get to where it is now ... a multi-million-dollar industry with friends in high places, like the guy at the right. But they don't really care about women's health; they only care about preventing a doomsday scenario they have yet to prove is a real possibility, let alone an inevitability. Put these wingnuts into power, and what today is a "right" of dubious provenance will become a legal obligation tomorrow.
