Speaking at a CNN climate change town hall event Wednesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said that he is willing to discuss population control and that abortion is crucial in combating the climate "crisis."

Sanders was asked by an attendee, "Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?"

He responded, "The answer is yes," while also claiming that population control is something he “very, very strongly” supports.

Sanders then added, "The answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions."

Where does Bernie draw the line?
