NICK SCHULZ looks at Worldwatch's Lester Brown, who seems to think highly of China's one-child policy, which is effectively a forced-abortion policy.
My position on this is pro-choice: if you want an abortion, you should be able to have one. If you don't, the goverment shouldn't make you.
Brown, I think, illustrates the not-so-latent authoritarianism that pervades too much of the environmental movement.
