Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders railed against the Trump administration for ending U.S. funding of abortion businesses overseas and said one of the benefits of abortion is that it reduces the population.

Sanders, a senator from Vermont and self-proclaimed Democratic socialist, participated in CNN’s climate town hall Wednesday night and was asked by Martha Readyoff, a teacher, whether he would speak up about the issue of human overpopulation. 

Readyoff, a teacher from Connecticut, said during the town hall that human population growth has more than doubled over the last 50 years. She contended that “the planet cannot sustain this growth.” She admitted that it was a “poisonous” topic for politicians but one that is “crucial to face.”
