ATLANTA, Apr 20 (LSN) – Actress Jane Fonda, wife of Ted Turner the notorious population control alarmist, was chastised last week for remarks she made on Wednesday in her address to the U.N.  Population Fund agency in New York. Fonda, who last year opposed US government efforts to promote chastity, likened Georgia to developing countries, claiming that “children are starving to death [in Georgia]  and people live in tar-paper shacks.”  Fonda was out to promote her latest population control measure, G-CAPP, which aims to reduce teenage pregnancy in Georgia by 25 percent by 2001.  Of course, Fonda’s methods of “prevention of pregnancy” include the killing of already fertilized embryos in their mother’s wombs.  Fonda’s remarks angered Georgia Governor Zell Miller who demanded an apology. After receiving Miller’s letter of protest, Fonda retracted her remarks saying,  “I was wrong. I should not have said what I said. … My comments were inaccurate and ill-advised.” One wonders where the pro-  abortion movement would be if they were all forced to publicly retract their lies.
