Vatican to end poverty by ending the poor?

There are massive, well-funded organizations that claim they want to help solve the problem of poverty; however, they would do so by eliminating the poor through contraception and abortion.

Jeffrey Sachs

The Vatican's latest appointment to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, Jeffrey Sachs, is an economist whose plan to fix poverty is to kill the poor. 

Sachs is no stranger to the Vatican. He was a featured speaker at more than six Vatican conferences in the last two years.

In 2011, the world's population topped out at an all-time high of 7 billion people. Sachs openly lamented that in a span of 12 years, the population had jumped by a billion heads:

A rising population puts enormous pressures on a planet already plunging into environmental catastrophe. … The reduction of fertility rates should be encouraged in the poorer countries as well. Rapid and wholly voluntary reductions of fertility have been and can be achieved in poor countries. Success at reducing high fertility rates depends on keeping girls in school, ensuring that children survive and providing access to modern family planning and contraceptives.

In his 2009 book, Commonwealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet, Sachs suggested legalized abortion to deal with "unwanted children." He also claimed that "abortion should be legalized" to help tank the fertility rates in poor countries.

Now, Sachs has the opportunity to advance — with Vatican stationery — his evil proposal of murdering the poor. Last year, when Sachs had a more visible presence in the Vatican, faithful Catholics questioned why an abortion activist was allowed to advise the Vatican.

Bp. Marcelo Sorondo

The chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, Bp. Marcelo Sorondo, responded to the criticism in a 2020 interview. He claimed Sachs "has changed " and that "he integrates the Magisterium of the Church and of Pope Francis into economics by putting the human person and the common good at the center."

There is no documentation, however, showing Sachs' rejection of his abortion ideology. But then again, Sorondo is not a good judge of who has changed and who hasn't. In 2018, he made the outrageous claim that "at this moment, those who best realize the social doctrine of the Church are the Chinese." 

Some men with offices at the Vatican are not just out of touch, they are evil.

Yes, Sorondo lauds the same atheist, communist Chinese who have been repressing Catholics for decades. It's become obvious now to many people that some men with offices at the Vatican are not just out of touch, they are evil.
