Chile’s pro-abortion, pro-LGBT socialist president to speak at Vatican conference
August 25, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Chile's socialist president who just helped legalize abortion and is now pushing for same-sex "marriage" will speak at a Vatican conference on climate change and population control in November.
President Michelle Bachelet, who originally introduced the pro-abortion law that the country's high court just ruled is constitutional, will speak at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences' "Health of People, Health of Planet and Our Responsibility: Climate Change, Air Pollution and Health" conference on November 2.
The same day Chile's high court ruled in favor of the abortion law, Bachelet promised to formally introduce legislation to make marriage an institution between any "two people, of the same or different sex."
Bachelet's talk is called "Global Leadership Session I: Call to Action."
Speaking alongside Bachelet at the conference are one-world government-supporting climate activist John Schellnhuber, population control supporters Sir Partha Dasgupta and Peter Raven, pro-abortion activist Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University, and three pro-abortion American politicians.
The American politicians are Rep. Scott Peters, D-California; state Sen. Kevin de León, president pro Tempore of the California State Senate; and California Gov. Jerry Brown. All three vocally support Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion business.
The state of California is currently attempting to prosecute and censor David Daleiden, the pro-life activist who uncovered Planned Parenthood's baby body parts trafficking.
Archbishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, the head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, will also be present and speak. This is the second population control conference featuring opponents of Catholic teaching that Sorondo has hosted this year. At the first one, called "Biological Extinction" and held in February, Sorondo said, "We know some part but not all of the doctrine of the Church" about fertility and procreation.
Pro-abortion activists have said they hope Chile's legalization of abortion will create a "domino effect" in the six Latin American and Caribbean countries that still outlaw it.
According to Bachelet, same-sex "marriage" is "not only a demand of the international justice system but a legitimate demand of Chilean society."
