Chaminade University in Hawaii is offering tickets to students at a discount price to attend a talk by former Vice President Al Gore, an abortion rights and same-sex marriage advocate, later this month as part of the Stephen and Marylyn Pauley Seminar in Sustainability series, organized by the University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program
Gore, chairman of The Climate Reality Project, the subject of an Oscar-winning documentary, and co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, is an outspoken abortion right supporter. In fact, in his run for President of the United States in 1999, Gore reportedly said, “I will always, always defend a woman’s right to choose. Every time Congress has tried to play politics with that fundamental personal right —imposing gag rules, and attaching anti-choice language to any bill they can think of — we have stood up to them and stopped them. If they try it again,we’ll stop them again. And if they try it after the year 2000, with your help, I’ll stop them. That hard-won right will be safe with me as your President.”
In 2008, Gore reportedly endorsed same-sex marriage and said, “Shouldn’t we be promoting faithfulness and loyalty to one’s partner regardless of sexual orientation?”
“Gore authored the bestsellers Earth in the Balance, An Inconvenient Truth, The Assault on Reason, Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis, and most recently, The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change,” states Chaminade. “He is the co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, for ‘informing the world of the dangers posed by climate change.’”
Gore has reportedly declared the need for “fertility management” to battle overpopulation which he believes contributes to global warming.
