Liberals to Poor Third World Children: Drop Dead

Nature magazine has a terrific feature in its current issue about the great Swedish demographer Hans Rosling, who we have discussed here on Power Line in the past.

Late in the long piece appears this astounding sentence:

Melinda Gates says that after a drink or two, people often tell her that they think the Gates Foundation may be contributing to overpopulation and environmental collapse by saving children’s lives with interventions such as vaccines.

Read that sentence again slowly. And let it sink in.

No wonder people on the left get angry when you say that “All lives matter.” Because they don’t believe that they do.
