Liberal Activist: Sometimes I Think 'Abortion Should Be Mandatory' to Reduce Earth's Population

"Sometimes in my darker moments, I'm anti-choice. I think abortion should be mandatory for about 30 years."

Sex columnist and liberal activist Dan Savage said this week that sometimes he thinks "abortion should be mandatory" as a solution to what he said was Earth's overpopulation problem.

Savage, on a panel at an Australian event, was asked by an audience member to provide a "dangerous idea" that would change the world for the better.

"Population control. There's too many goddamn people on the planet," Savage told the laughing audience.

"You know, I'm pro-choice, I believe that women should have a right to control their bodies," he continued. "Sometimes in my darker moments, I'm anti-choice. I think abortion should be mandatory for about 30 years."

Savage, an outspoken liberal, made news earlier this week after it was reported he was paid $24,000 to deliver a graphic sex speech at a public university in October.
