Bill Nye the Science Guy, famous for hosting a childrens educational TV show, is not as kid-friendly as he initially may appear.
An abortion advocate, Nye recently hosted a new Netflix show that The Federalist describes as bordering on eugenics.
The episode Earths People Problem is part of the Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World. In the half-hour show, Nye and several panelists discuss how they think large families and population growth are affecting the world, according to the report.
One of those panelists is an abortionist named Nerys Benfield who practices at the Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. Another is Dr. Rachel Snow of the United Nations Population Fund, which has been linked to coercive abortion practices in China.
Nye begins the show by describing how humans use natural resources. According to the report:
Following an intro that demonstrates how human consumption is like sponges soaking up water, Nye explains how women who have access to educational and professional opportunities tend to have fewer children. This is true
Nye says when women are in power, they have fewer children, and more resources can be devoted to those children. Its not rocket surgery. Its science! he coyly explains.
The underlying eugenic and abortion tones come out later in the show. Though the word abortion never is mentioned, panelists hint at it while talking about family planning and womens health care.
Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter.
At one point, Nye even asks the panel if families should be penalized for having extra kids.
The report continues:
The fight against climate change, Nyes most passionate cause, is brought up by [Dr. Travis Rieder, ethicist at the Berman Institute at Johns Hopkins University], who notes that children in developed countries use 160 times more resources than children in the developing world. This is where the creepy totalitarianism of the environmental movement starts to show itself. Nye asks, bluntly, Should we have policies that penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world?
Rieder says we should at least consider a form of punishment for people who have these Extra Kids (TM). Nye impatiently responds that consider means do it. Snow, to her credit, jumps in and takes issue with the idea that we do anything to incentivize fewer children or more children. Benfield notes the history of compulsory sterilization in America, a practice that was in place as recently as the 1970s. The issue was not come at from a position of justice in the past, she adds. But this time will be different, I guess?
Some countries already do penalize large families, and their population policies are notoriously abusive. China mandates that families have only two children. Until last year, most families in China were allowed one child. Families who have more than one or two children report being coerced or even forced to abort their unborn children, fired from their jobs and penalized with huge fines.
Last October, the BBC interviewed a Chinese family who went into hiding after conceiving a third child.
The local government carries out pregnancy examinations every three months, the husband told the BBC. If we werent in hiding, they would have forced us to have an abortion.
Others have been even less fortunate. A U.S. Congressional report from 2011 detailed one horrifying case where a woman 9-months pregnant with twins was dragged to a local medical center, held down and forced to abort her unborn twins.
These coercive population policies have proven to be abusive, and yet they are being promoted again in popular western media.
Plus if he has a children's TV show would it not make sense to have more children to watch it?
He does realize that would mean many South Asian and North African Muslims, as well as most Sub-saharan Africans - doesn’t he??
The penalty is - you can’t enter the United States.
The Liberals want to penalize people for having MORE children, because we supposedly cannot support them.....
They also want to bring in HORDES of people from the TURD WORLD because we “NEED MORE PEOPLE”...
MAKE UP YOU F###ING MINDS!!!!!
Ever so Exasperated,
Another Fascist masquerading as a “scientist”.
According to Bill Nye, Japan is doing it right.
So we should call their bluff an enact the same immigration controls that Japan has, and then slam them over the head when they complain with what Bill Nye has said....
His audience is all grown up now...still children in a lot of ways, but he’s no longer just doing kids shows.
As a twin, I wonder how China’s 1 child policy would have worked with me and my brother...last one out gets the hammer in the skull?
He is quite the wannabe Commissar.
Bill Nye the Leftist guy.
He hates Hispanics?
Peeps not having kids and teaching them well are not a plus to the long term prosperity of the country.
Bill Nye is some guy with an overgrown ego and a degree in mechanical engineering, not science. So long as he is not supporting the larger families, either by actual funding or by taxes, he should shut up. Of course, I do not support people on welfare in any form having more kids than they can personally support. If you are paying your own way with your family, have all the kids you want. With all the illiterate resource-sucking scum being imported into this country, and all the welfare queens spawning byproducts of their irresponsible lust, we can use some well-raised intelligent kids.
“He hates Hispanics?”
I would say that feeding the third world results in increasing populations and there is no reason to allow that to continue. People who can’t feed themselves are the ones that shouldn’t has childrn.
On the right, we suck at arguing.
Every time “states rights” is mentioned we are forced to say we don’t like slavery.
Every time cutting spending is mentioned we are forced to say we don’t want to kill poor people.
We should do the same to the left. EVERY SINGLE TIME population is brought up they should be forced to say they don’t believe in forced sterilization and forced abortion. Every time they talk about too many people and not enough resources they should be accused of advocating for China’s one child policy. Every time abortion is brought up, they should be forced to say their goal isn’t more dead black babies. This should happen EVERY SINGLE TIME, just like it does to us.
True. If leftists were honest they’d admit that they only disapprove of WHITE people procreating.
As long as they vote democratic and are as dumb as dirt...
You’ve gotta see this!
Everyone on the Left believes this.
He is just the one dumb enough to come out and say it.
For the generation following Fukushima, it may be hard to predict the performance of individuals in the Japanese gene pool.
