Radical abortion supporter invited to Vatican science conference. Write to the Pope!

At the end of February and the beginning of March, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences has organised a conference at the Vatican, entitled "Biological Extinction". The main topic of the meeting will be the issue of environmental protection.

Unfortunately, among the invited speakers is a notorious doctor from the US, Paul Ehrlich - he is a biologist and demographer, known for his extreme, anti-human, anti-life views. Since the 1970s, he has openly supported the legalisation of abortion in his publications, going so far as to support the use of forced-abortion and sterilisation to reduce the population of the Earth.

He has even stated that allowing women to have any number of children, is like allowing people "to throw as much of their garbage into their neighbour's backyard as they want." (New York Times, May 31, 2015)

Also, in other, recent interviews, he has repeatedly spoken against the teaching of the Church on abortion and contraception. Ehrlich has even slandered Pope Francis' defence of life in Laudato Si, as "raving nonsense".

Because of Ehrlich's opposition to Life - and, just plain bad science (his theories on population growth/control in his 1968 book, "The Population Bomb", have been wholely discredited), concerned Catholics and all people of goodwill now encourage the Pope to ask the Pontifical Academy of Sciences to disinvite him from speaking at the upcoming conference.

Thank you for signing this petition.

PAS discredits itself and Church teaching by inviting radical abortion supporter to speak at conference

For the Kind Attention of:

  • Pope Francis

Cc'ed Dr Werner Arber, President of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences

I wish to express my concern at the invitation of Dr Paul Ehrlich to present and speak at the upcoming "Biological Extinction" conference organised by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

Dr Ehrlich is a well-known biologist who has supported forced-abortion and the sterilisation of women, which has led to so much harm and so many injustices in places like India and China.

Moreover, Ehrlich has also attacked Church teaching on abortion and contraception, and even slandered your defence of life in Laudato Si, as "raving nonsense".

I'm afraid that to invite such a radical, anti-life scientist to a conference, organised by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, will give his extreme anti-human views undeserved notoriety and importance, and, also, perhaps be a cause of scandal. The same invitation could also discredit the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which has, to-date, made some very important contributions to science and social studies.

I'm writing to you as someone who is concerned about the defence of human life, at all stages. I hope that the incident is the result of an oversight, and I hope that steps will be taken to disinvite Dr Ehrlich, so that his noxious views will not be promoted at an event organised by the Vatican.

Thank you for your pastoral consideration.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
