This image courtesy of Ann Telnaes at the Washington Post editorial animation page claims the pope’s anti-contraceptive stance is responsible for overpopulation:
What is the pope inflating? A pregnant woman. How idiotic.
If you want to understand why this editorial cartoon is so misguided, read Steven Mosher’s column in the National Catholic Register: “Too Many People? Ignore the UNFPA and Welcome Baby 7 Billion.”
If anything, we should be thanking the Catholic Church and the pope for advocating a pro-human message. But I guess it’s too much to hope that a WaPo cartoonist would understand the facts behind the figures.
