Wangari Maathai on Democracy Now!

Democracy Now! aired an interview with Nobel Peace Laureate Wangari Maathai yesterday about the connections between environmental, human rights, and anti-war advocacy. Although the subject didn’t come up in the interview, Maathai also opposes abortion. She gave an interview to a Norwegian newspaper in 2004 in which she said that abortion is wrong, and that it hurts both unborn children and their mothers.

One thought on “Wangari Maathai on Democracy Now!

  1. No one believed me when I brought Wangari Maathai’s pro-life statement up in a Campus Greens meeting. Thanks for bringing them to light!
