We must cut out the cancer of population growth. Coercion? Perhaps,
but coercion in a good cause [population control] ... We must be
relentless in pushing for population control.
Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb, 1968.
The world is critically overburdened with people right now.
This crush of humanity is destroying the environment and detracting from
everybody's quality of life.
It is absolutely essential that we slow or halt population growth by
making contraception and abortion available to all of the world's women.
If we do not put the brakes on our runaway population, the use of
coercion will be necessary in order to save the planet. Introduction.
Family Planning has a theme
Two children as each couples dream;
Three years after marriage, one -
Before 33 childbearing's done.
Let a small family be your goal
Just choose a method of birth control
Methods are safe and simple too
A happy future waits for you.
Poem from a Taiwanese population control
pamphlet entitled "Paste Your Umbrella Before the Rain."
The Malthus Manifesto.
There exists, at this very moment, a tremendous battle of minds over
the vexing problem of world population vs. world food supply. This
struggle, largely unnoticed by the public, has been going on ever since
the British economist, the Rev. Thomas Malthus, published his landmark
work Essay on the Principle of Population in 1798.
The heart of Malthus' philosophy, and the cornerstone of the
population controller's credo, was contained in his book; "The
power of population is indefinitely greater than the power of the earth
to produce subsistence for man. Population, when unchecked, increases in
a geometrical ratio. Subsistence increases only in an arithmetical ratio
... By that law of our nature which makes food necessary to the life of
man, the effects of these two unequal power must be kept equal. This
implies a strong and constantly operating check on population from the
difficulty of subsistence."
The title of the second edition of Malthus' book, published in 1826,
betrayed his strong bias towards "quality of life;" An
Essay on the Principle of Population: Or a View of its Past and Present
Effects on Human Happiness; With and Inquiry into Our Prospects
Respecting the Future Removal or Mitigation of the Evil Which it
Take it to the Limit ...
The "New Malthusians" seem to delight in painting pictures
of mass horrors that will inevitably befall society if various nations
do not get serious about controlling their populations right now.
Their predictions are almost always wrong and frequently comical.
25 years ago, Paul Ehrlich, the dean of the population scaremasters,
warned us that mass starvation would strike the North American continent
by the year 1985. Now, of course, the United States and Canada have tens
of thousands of weight-loss clinics, and diet books routinely occupy the
New York Times bestseller list.
In the 1970s, the mass media, ever ready to hitch a ride on a
politically correct cause, warned us that, by 1990, huge artificial
islands would be constructed in the middle of the ocean to handle the
earth's exploding population; that the world's oil supplies would be
completely depleted by 2000; and that the prime motivator of all wars by
the year 1990 would be attacks on other nation's cached food stores.
Zero Population Growth (ZPG) leaders took advantage of the media
drumbeat and loudly insisted that the United States create a Bureau of
Some of the population controllers extrapolated current trends far
past the point where they are physically possible in order to frighten
people who were not familiar with statistical theory or demographics.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of the population is unschooled in
these disciplines, and so accept the bogus math of the population
controllers without question.
A 1972 article by David Lytle, which was heavily circulated by
Planned Parenthood-World Population, was chillingly and verbosely
entitled "The Human Race Has Thirty-Five Years Left: After That,
People Will Start Eating Plankton. Or People."
Other population controllers predicted that, if population growth
continued at a rate of two percent annually for 650 years, there would
be standing room only on the planet, with only one square foot allocated
In other words, the population of the world under such an absurd
scenario would be 1,589 trillion persons, or 450,000 times the world
population in 1972.
Even this was not the most ridiculous prediction made by the
population controllers. Ansley Coale won the prize for the most
ludicrous projection when he said that we are experiencing " ... a
growth process which, within 65 centuries and in the absence of
environmental limits, could generate a solid sphere of live bodies
expanding with a radial velocity that, neglecting relativity, would
equal the velocity of light."
A little fiddling with numbers reveals that this would be equivalent
to 23,891 trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) people, or more than the number of
atoms in the known universe!
Such statistical extrapolations obviously have no bearing on reality
whatever and are entirely useless for any purpose other than scaring
Intellectuals who are interested in the population 'problem' have
gravitated towards two poles. A minority insists that it is indeed
possible for the world population to continue to grow almost without
restraint, because we could feed as many as 50 billion people
comfortably if we could just remove all of the existing barriers to food
production and distribution.
This is an unrealistic viewpoint. Inevitably, the world population
will indeed exceed the food supply, even if production and distribution
methods operate under ideal conditions. At the rate the world population
is growing, we would reach the 50 billion limit in about 150 years. What
would we do then? How could we possibly overcome the momentum of such
massive population growth? Any measures taken to limit population growth
would be much more severe under such a scenario than they would be
today. And, of course, any population-limiting or reducing disaster
would be much worse indeed than under current conditions.
The other viewpoint of those interested in population problems is
much more practical. It is also terrifying. Those who hold this view
have the primary or secondary goal of limiting population at any cost,
and include members of the Rockefeller Foundation, the International
Planned Parenthood Federation, UNICEF, Zero Population Growth (ZPG), and
many others organizations. This extensive, vastly wealthy, and very
influential cartel is so bold in its work, and so convinced that it are
right, that it doesn't even bother to conceal or package its activities
in a more attractive and appealing format any more.
So the fundamental question remains: Where is the middle ground
between a planetwide sewer and the dreaded Uterus Police (a la
the People's Republic of China)? The Environmental Agitators.
[Environmental groups] are missing the boat because picking up the
garbage is not the issue, having sewage treatment plants is not the
issue those are really details of the bigger
issue. It's like trying to talk about a pimple when you really have
As described in Chapter 91, "Animal Rights and
Environmentalism," some people believe that Man has no particular
status on this earth, and that he is just another animal who must take
into consideration all the other animals when making any
decisions regarding his own welfare.
This all sounds logical from a Humanistic point of view, but when
people begin to see themselves as morally equal to or even lower than
animals, a certain inevitable depressive world outlook must result.
After all, if we are not the supreme creation of God, then we are a
cancer. If we do not occupy a privileged place on this earth, we occupy
the lowest rung of existence because of our unparalleled ability to
destroy other species. If we desire to escape responsibility in sexual
and other matters, we may assuage our consciences by accepting
culpability for 'destroying' our planet a psychological ploy that allows us to
take no concrete action other than being politically correct in our
This attitude is reflected in many statements made by animal rights
activists like Ingrid Newkirk, who once said that "We [humans] have
grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the
earth." Although not an activist by any means, even United
States Supreme Court Associate Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes once
remarked that "I see no reason for attributing to man a
significance different in kind from that which belongs to a baboon or a
grain of sand."
Some environmentalists even wish for death, not only for themselves,
but for the entire human race. For them, the world is an unending circus
of horrors, to be endured and survived until the blessed release
afforded by the end of their lives.
Bill McKibben writes in The End of Nature that
not interested in the utility of a particular species or free-flowing
river, or ecosystem, to mankind. They have intrinsic value, more value
to me than another human body, or a billion of them. Human happiness,
and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and
healthy planet ... Somewhere along the line at about a billion years ago, maybe
half that we quit the contract and became a
cancer. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the earth ...
Until such time as homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of
us can only hope for the right virus to come along.
Perhaps the most extreme statement of this
nihilistic philosophy was made by what has to be the world's ultimate
anti-life group The Voluntary Human Extinction
Movement, or VHEMT, pronounced "vehement" for short.
Anti-people crusader Les U. Knight, Portland, Oregon substitute teacher
and founder of VHEMT, says in his newsletter These Exit Times,
The hopeful alternative to the extinction of millions of
species of plants and animals is the voluntary extinction of one
species: Homo sapiens us ... When every human makes the
moral choice to live long and die out, Earth will be allowed to return
to its former glory. Each time another one of us decides not to add
another one of us to the burgeoning billions already squatting on this
ravaged planet, another ray of hope shines through the gloom ... No
matter what you're doing to improve life on planet Earth, I think you'll
find that phasing out the human race will increase your chance of
Knight seems not to notice that people will have a hard time
'improving life on planet Earth' if there are no people left to do the
One Expression of the Worldview.
One strange manifestation of the
extreme animal rights/ environmental worldview is that such activists
are uniformly pro-abortion. They turn pale at the thought of inflicting
any discomfort or damage upon animals or even upon inanimate objects,
but shrug indifferently when confronted with the specter of a late-term
unborn baby writhing in agony as it is torn limb from limb by the steel
instruments of the abortionist.
Molly Yard, former president of the National Organization for Women,
neatly tied abortion and radical environmentalism together when she said
that "The abortion question is not just about women's rights, but
about life on the planet environmental catastrophe awaits the world if
the population continues to grow at its present rate."
The following environmental and animal-rights organizations have gone
on record as favoring repeal of the Mexico City Policy and restoration
of Federal funding to the United Nations Fund for Population Activities
(UNFPA), the chief architect of China's one-child population control
policy. This program includes mass forced sterilization and abortion, as
described in Chapter 50 of Volume II, "Forced Abortions."

These environmental groups claim that they only favor "family
planning" and "population control." However, their
leadership is fully aware of the fact that the Mexico City Policy and
the cutoff of funds to the UNFPA only affected those
"population control" programs that funded coerced abortions.
The Anti-Natalist Bigots Speak.
Birth control is the one sin for which the penalty is national
death, race death; a sin for which there is no atonement.
The population guru's books are masterpieces of
hysteria. Even their titles hint (scream?) at the philosophy of the
authors Men or Insects? by Alfred Fabre-Luce; Breeding
Ourselves to Death by Larry Lader; Standing Room Only by Karl
Sax; Population on the Loose by Elmer Pendell; The Case for
Compulsory Birth Control by Edgar R. Chasteen; and, of course, Paul
Ehrlich's shoddy 'work,' The Population Bomb.
The outlandish solutions and proposals put forth by these popcon
devotees border on the ridiculous; they are certainly nothing that a
free society would accept, much less a Christian society.
The Common Anti-Catholic Thread.
These 'works' prominently feature a
single common thread: A total and irrational hate of the Catholic Church
(the Neoliberal term for this attitude is "bigotry").
Elmer Pendell denounces the "Cardinal's breeding program,"
allegedly promulgated to gain political control in the United States; he
also asserts that "The Catholic hierarchy favors war as a method of
keeping population and resources in balance," states as a fact that
"One characteristic of Catholic countries is gnawing hunger,"
and, like Maggie Sanger, philosophizes that
The Catholics are
promulgating a breeding program to gain political control in the United
States. In the poorer countries, they favor war as a method of keeping
population and resources in balance. In these poor countries, the denser
population is denser because the dumber Catholics and dumber others are
having so many dumb children so the major influence of the Catholic's
campaign against birth control is that they trade away their smart
Catholics and get dumb ones.
Just try substituting the word "Jew" or "Black"
for the word "Catholic" in the above quote and see what kind
of a reaction you get!
The pro-abortionists are certainly not above slandering the Catholic
Church in pursuit of their goals. Dr. Bernard Nathanson gives us a rare
'insider's' look at the anti-Catholic bigots as he describes part of a
1969 conversation he had with fellow abortophile Larry Lader, in his
book Aborting America;
Historically, every revolution has
to have its villain ... Now, in our case, it makes little sense to lead
a campaign only against unjust laws, even though that's what we really
are doing. We have to narrow the focus, identify those unjust laws with
a person or a group of people ... There's always been one group of
people in this country associated with reactionary politics,
behind-the-scenes manipulations, socially backward ideas. You know who I
mean, Bernie ... the Catholic hierarchy. That's a small enough group to
come down on, and anonymous enough so that no names ever have to be
Biophobia and Self-Hate.
We [humans] have grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight
on the face of the earth.
Ingrid Newkirk, Director of People for the Ethical Treatment of
The Root of All Evils.
When we turn away from God, we lose the hope
that He offers us. If we fail to recognize the soul within us, we become
just another animal, undeserving of any special respect or
consideration. Man's value or lack of value then depends solely upon his
perceived impact upon Gaia, the "Goddess Earth."
This hopeless worldview is reflected in the statements of
antinatalist activists in every field.
Edgar Chasteen asserted in his ominously-named book The Case for
Compulsory Birth Control that "Soon the world may well be
engulfed by indescribable horrors as these nations of the starving are
crushed under the weight of their teeming populations."
Chasteen's suggested law mandating sterilization and birth control is
shown in Figure 131-1.
EDGAR CHASTEEN'S PROPOSED COMPULSORY FAMILY PLANNING MEASURES
PUBLIC LAW NUMBER _____:
REVERSIBLE FERTILITY IMMUNIZATION
As of January 1, 1975, it shall be unlawful for any American family
to give birth to more than two children. Any family already having two
or more natural children on that date shall not be allowed to give birth
to another. Toward this end, it is hereby lawfully determined that all
Americans above the age of 10 years will, at least one year prior to the
aforementioned date, present himself/herself for reversible immunization
against fertility at a local county health department or physician's
office. An official "Certificate of Immunization" shall be
issued to and in the name of each citizen so treated. Said certification
shall be signed by the authorized medical practitioner who administers
the immunization, and shall be entered into the official records of the
county in which immunization occurred. After marriage, any citizen may
present himself/herself at a local county health department or
physician's office and obtain a fertility restorer. At the birth of the
second child, immunity against fertility shall be readministered to both
parents. If the first birth shall be multiple, no other births shall be
permitted to that mother, and both parents shall thereupon be

Control. Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, 1971.
Perpetual population controller Paul Ehrlich asserted in his 1968
pulp scare novel The Population Bomb that "We must cut out
the cancer of population growth." The United States Department
of State was even more direct, asserting that "[Mankind is] the
cancer of the planet."
This 'biophobia,' or fear of human life, is generally an infection
suffered by those who approve of or use artificial contraception,
abortion, and euthanasia. It is also vividly portrayed in many of their
articles and books. Some quotes that reflect this twisted worldview are
listed in Figure 131-2.

by society which may legitimately limit that privilege. (2) Every

Future." 54 pages, 1972, page 45.
Planning to prevent over-population of the earth must include
the practice of euthanasia, either negative or positive ... Therefore,
since we must restrict the rate of population increase, we should also
be giving careful consideration to the quality as well as the quantity
of people generated ... We doubtless will not get support from all
religious groups and it would be best not to force these and other
disagreeing groups to conform unless non-conformity would affect society
or significant segments of it too adversely.

America and to de-develop the United States.

Quoted in Brent Bozell. "Environmental Inaccuracy: Who Cares?"
Conservative Chronicle, June 17, 1992, page 18.
As a first step in this direction [of achieving zero population
growth], it would be necessary for the family planning movement to
enlarge its objectives ... from enabling couples to achieve the number
of children desired to inducing them to have a number of children

Tools for Depopulation.
Nobody in their right mind will seriously
argue that the United States is overpopulated. Instead, the emphasis is
cleverly shifted to the topic of how much of the world's resources we
selfishly consume, and how overcrowded and hungry other nations
While we were distracted by horrific scenes from blighted areas of
the world, the popcon fanatics emplaced and deployed the tools for
government-enforced population control in our country. In 1967,
Congress allocated its first $50 million for domestic population control
and family planning programs. The Family Planning Services and
Population Research Act of 1970 allocated $382 million for domestic
The Commission on Population Growth and the American Future, packed
entirely with pro-abortion and anti-natalist activists, made its stance
official in 1972 by stating baldly that "We have concluded that no
substantial benefits would result from continued growth of the nation's
population." And, of course, the Supreme Court presented us with
abortion on demand in 1973.
Stamps for Eunuchs.
Even the United States Postal Service has gotten
into the act. On March 17, 1972, it unveiled its new eight-cent
"Family Planning" stamp at the winter meeting of the Planned
Parenthood-World Population Board of Directors in New York City. The
Postal Service announced that "The new stamp will serve as a
reminder for all members of our society of the current world
environmental situation and the need for planning to have a better
America and a better world."
This stamp showed a perfectly groomed, White,
"gender-balanced" family joyously embarking on the wide and
smooth road to the Brave New World, as shown below.
Crude But Effective.
This anti-natalist propaganda has been extremely
effective in our country, as shown in the demographic bar charts in
Chapter 48 of Volume II, "Demographic Effects of Abortion."
Our country has not attained a replacement birthrate in more than 15
years. Women have been constantly bombarded with the message "STOP
For more information about how the scourge of abortion has decimated
the United States and world populations, see Chapter 57 of Volume II,
"International Abortion Situation."
Abortion is now an act of honor, performed and endured gladly for the
greater good of the planet. Catholic women have been conned into giving
up their religion and have been given an excuse to turn to artificial
contraception. "Christians" everywhere have come to believe
that abortion and artificial birth control are the least of several
evils. Child-killing has been turned from a mortal sin into a moral and
The Propagandists Agitate.
Propagandists are in the forefront of any
Neoliberal social revolution, regardless of whether it is a drive
euthanasia, homosexuality, abortion or population control.
A propaganda campaign consists of two parts: Presenting one view and
censoring opposing opinions.
Antinatalist strategists are already preparing our children for
indoctrination in various coercive population control measures, as
described in Chapter 114, "Homeschooling."
They are also struggling to insure that our children are not exposed
to any kind of influence that would encourage them to have children when
they grow up and marry.
One such example of censorship was provided by the National
Association for Optional Parenthood (NAOP), which launched its "Pronatalism
in Textbooks Project" in the late 1970s. The following excerpts
were taken from a letter that NAOP mailed to its members.
Thank you for your interest in the Pronatalism in Textbooks
Project and for volunteering your assistance. With your help and that of
others we will be able to further the principle goal of this project;
the elimination of pronatalist content in textbooks and children's
At this point, we need people to examine textbooks and evaluate
them for pronatalist content ...
Pronatalism refers to social and economic systems and attitudes
that exalt the role of parent and assume or encourage parenthood for all
... Pronatalism can lead to sexist stereotyping; limited roles,
especially for women; overpopulation; inadequate or abusive parenting;
feelings of inadequacy or ostracism for couples who, by choice or fate,
have no children and are a "two-person family.
Pronatalism is sometimes so subtle that we often are unaware of
its existence. The following criteria will be helpful in identifying
pronatalism in textbooks; 3. Definition of family to exclude couples
without children. 5. Large families favored over one-child or no child
families. 6. Failure to discuss family planning when appropriate. 8.
Theories of "maternal instinct" or maternity as central to
women's lives. 10. Bias against abortion ...
NAOP's Advisory Council reads like a horror buff's lineup of
celebrities: It numbers among its many members Lee Salk, Alvin Toffler,
Geraldo Rivera, Paul Ehrlich, and Shirley MacLaine.
NAOP even went so far as to whine about Holiday Inn's "Kids Eat
Free" program, claiming that "The symbolic message in policies
of this kind may be interpreted as "approval" for parenthood,
there being no comparable benefits for those without children."
The Plague of 'Contraceptive Imperialism.'
It is the moral obligation of the developed nations to provide
... birth control techniques to the developing portions of the
Humanist Manifesto II, Article 15.
Third World aid without birth control is like trying to pour
Columnist Hobart Rowen, The Washington Post, September 15,
The anti-life philosophy asserts that, in order for a
nation to advance economically or socially, every country must control
its population. This objective is supposedly paramount, and therefore
any means necessary may be used to implement it, even if such means
include widespread coercion. The truth of the matter is even more
fundamental: If developing nations do not control their
populations, then the commercial interests of the United States
will be at risk.
Dr. Charles Ravenholt, Director of the Population Office, candidly
Population control is needed to maintain the normal
operation of United States commercial interests around the world.
Without our trying to help those countries with their economic and
social development, the world could rebel against the strong United
States commercial presence. The self interest thing is a compelling
element. If the population explosion proceeds unchecked, it will cause
such terrible economic conditions abroad that revolutions will ensue.
And revolutions are scarcely ever beneficial to the interests of the
This condescending attitude is at the heart of the West's
"contraceptive imperialism." We have been scared into
believing in the phenomenon of "differential fertility:" i.e.,
if we don't do something fast, we Americans will be inundated
with all of those "colored" people from those poor, backward
nations (like Mexico). And, even worse, these "colored" people
might even revolt against U.S. commercial control of their economies and
might even become (gasp!) financially independent!
Obviously, contraceptive imperialism is, by its very nature,
More than two decades ago, feminist writer Lynn Phillips recognized
the strong link between 'population aid' and external coercion and
control, and the connection obviously made her distinctly uneasy;
[Birth control] is an international strategy in application
throughout the world; in Vietnam population control of uncontrollables
takes the form of outright genocide, but in Latin America, India, here,
and in American colonies, birth control is the favored method ... If
there is any truth to the idea of a genocide campaign against black and
other minority women, our sisterly concern for [illegal] abortion
victims begins to look like a blind.
Agencies and Their Deadly Work.
In particular, United States official
and quasi-official bureaucracies, in the form of Planned Parenthood, the

converting everyone into a infinitely consuming society can be found in

Perhaps the most important antinatalist conference took place on June
19th and 20th, 1974 at the Hotel Americana in New York City. It was
sponsored by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), and
was entitled "The International Convocation on the World Population
It is interesting to note that many of the distinguished population
controllers that were present at this conference were also members of
activist eugenics groups and were uniformly pro-abortion and
pro-euthanasia (see Chapter 105, "Eugenics," for a listing of
these eugenics organizations). Most of the population controllers named
in Figure 131-3 are still very active today. A partial list of
"Convocation Sponsors" is listed in the same figure, and is
More than 100 anti-life groups were listed as "Sponsoring
Organizations" at this conference, and this roll call read like a
Who's Who of pro-abortion groups.
Try to imagine the colossal wealth and influence that can be
marshalled by these people, who currently have an aggregate personal net
worth of more than five billion dollars, and the anti-life
organizations, whose aggregate annual budget exceeds a total of ten
billion dollars! Notice that the sponsors alone include 15 United
States Senators, Congressmen, Governors and Ambassadors, and try to
imagine how their belief in abortion and population control affects this
The incredible combined magnitude of the activities of these
organizations can be hinted at by examining the programs funded by just one
of them over a period of just one year.
In 1987, the United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF), in
partnership with the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA),
spent $720,684 to purchase abortifacient contraceptives in Jamaica;
contributed $700,000 to a World Bank project that established 18
sterilization facilities in Kenya; contributed $1,800,000 to another
World Bank project in Malawi for the development of sterilization
services; financed for $795,569 an UNFPA and World Health Organization
(WHO) project that expanded mobile sterilization units in Nepal; funded
for $37,116 a UNFPA project in Rwanda that supplied abortifacients;
funded for $21,657 another UNFPA project in conjunction with the
International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in Tanzania that
provided abortifacients; funded a stockpile of contraceptives in
Zimbabwe; and sponsored the formation of committees in 15 African
nations to expand contraception, abortion and sterilization, and attack
indigenous family values.
The Fatal Flaw.
Mahatma Gandhi, whose country has been a population
control battleground since the turn of the century, struck at the heart
of the matter when he pointed out that
If it is contended that birth control is necessary for the
nation because of overpopulation, I dispute the proposition. It has
never been proved. In my opinion, by a proper land system, better
agriculture, and a supplementary industry, this country is capable of
supporting twice as many people as there are in it today.
I am totally opposed to artificial means of controlling the
birthrate, and it is not possible for me to congratulate you or your
co-workers on having brought into being a league whose activities, if
successful, can only do great moral injury to the people. I wish I could
convince you and your co-workers to disband the league and devote your
energy to a better purpose. You will pardon for giving my opinion in a
When asked about the possibility of the United States government
getting into population control, President Dwight D. Eisenhower replied
that "I cannot imagine anything more emphatically a subject that is
not a proper political or governmental activity or function or
responsibility." Eisenhower, of course, changed his mind later.
Differential fertility certainly will lead to a vastly
different world socioeconomic picture before very long. Moslems, among
others, recognize very clearly that there is more than one way to
conquer the world. As Atifa Dawat, an Iranian delegate to the July 1985
conference entitled "Forum '85," in Nairobi, Kenya, stated,
"The more children we have, the better. When there are enough
Moslems in the world, then we will have world victory."
The United States would like to exert control by the opposite means;
by convincing Third World women to stop having babies.
The Process of Emasculation.
The story is the same on every continent
and in every country that has been subverted by the West's
"contraceptive imperialism." The process of corrupting and
destroying the morals, traditions, and religious beliefs of "less
developed" countries invariably follows the seven-step sequence
outlined in Figure 131-4.
THE SEVEN-STEP STRATEGY FOR FOREIGN POPULATION CONTROL
(1) First of all the national legislature is targeted. They must be
forced or persuaded to accept the equation that SMALL FAMILIES =
PROGRESS, which is alleged to mean equality with the West, the ultimate
goal of all proper nationalistic striving.
(2) Once approval for
contraception is gained "for family planning purposes," the
country is literally flooded with pills, IUDs, abortifacients such as
the injectable Depo-Provera, and, most deadly of all, the 'family
planning' experts, who maintain a hawklike vigilance to insure that
nothing goes awry.
(3) A massive propaganda campaign, which is now paid
for by the State, is launched. Its purpose is to convince the people to
abandon their 'backward' and 'unsophisticated' lifestyles and embrace
the idea that unrestricted sex is desirable. The groundwork for abortion
on demand, paid for by the State, begins to be laid.
(4) Since the
ultimate objective of the "popcon" experts is zero (or even
negative) population growth, sterilization is next. Incentives are
offered for male and female neutering, and camps are set up to
facilitate extensive sterilization programs. Often, women are
involuntarily sterilized as they are having their second child.
Since contraception very frequently fails, abortion becomes a necessary
backup, naturally only for the "hard cases." The population
planners are careful to leave plenty of restrictions on abortion.
(6) The restrictions on abortion are eliminated, one by one, for
"humanitarian" reasons. Once step (5) has been taken, this is
a remarkably easy process.
(7) Once respect for unborn life has been
sufficiently eroded, the movement to legalize euthanasia only for the
"hard cases" begins.
These programs have been devastatingly effective. Figure 131-5 shows
the impacts of population control programs on 16 countries that now
possess 61 percent of the world's population. Each has experienced a
steep drop in fertility over the past thirty years. The People's
Republic of China (PRC), the world's most populous country, has had a
56% decline in fertility since 1960, from 5.5 children per family to 2.4
children per family. This is largely a result of the coercive Chinese
population program, which is described in detail in Chapter 50 of Volume
II, "Forced Abortions."

rates for each country. If a country's population is to be stable, the
total fertility rate must be 2.20. References. (1) Jodi L. Jacobsen. Planning

It seems that economic prosperity, when teamed with a propaganda
saturation campaign, is by far the most effective means of population
control. Figure 131-5 shows that the fertility rate of Singapore has
plunged from 6.3 children per family to 1.6 children per family, a 75
percent decrease in 30 years.
Figure 131-6 shows the current rates of fertility for a number of
developed and developing nations. It is interesting to note that Europe
is literally dying; every country but one (Ireland) has a
below-replacement birth rate. In other words, if a fence was built
around the continent of Europe, allowing no immigration or emigration,
the continent would be completely unpopulated within twenty generations.

The population controllers keep very careful track of the trends
shown in Figure 131-7, and have proclaimed that their work has just
begun. Even when the population of the planet levels off and begins to
decline, they will always find more to do.
Many elements of the population control programs that have been
implemented in developing countries had to be tested in the United
States first, of course, and Figure 131-8 shows that the United States
has suffered as much as the rest of the world. The average number of
children living at home in American households has declined from 2.3 to

The View from the Left.
The contraception-abortion-euthanasia field
of study and action is almost incomprehensively vast in scope, but the
Right and Left find little to agree upon. One exception is the United
States' brand of "contraceptive imperialism."
The general reasoning of the Left is that the United States wants to
hold down the population in only developing countries because, as
Socialist writer K. Agnes White puts it, "Poverty and starvation
are the perfect breeding ground for Communism."
This is apparently the opposite of the situation in the United
States, where Marxism/Socialism/Communism are mere hobbies for trendies,
college students, and bored housewives.
The Real Motives.
In an article she wrote for the Portland [Oregon] Alliance,
White makes a disturbingly accurate analysis of the real reason
behind our meddling in the affairs of other countries;
distribution of such dangerous forms of birth control [i.e., IUDs banned
in the United States for health reasons] in Third World women and the
restriction of their use in industrialized countries makes it clear that
population control is a racist as well as sexist policy. Along with the
fear that the poor and hungry will rebel is the fear that the poor and
hungry by and large people of Color will out-breed Whites.
Case Study: South Africa.
South Africa is an obvious example of such
racist population policies. The South African government, coached by
United States Planned Parenthood experts, is implementing a strong
'family planning' program, but the "experts" blundered badly,
because only Whites are following the program!
In other words, the target population (Blacks) were smart enough to
see the deception, but Whites were not. In the last ten years, the White
birthrate has fallen from 2.8 children per family to less than
replacement at about 2.05 children per family in South Africa.
Meanwhile, the Blacks and 'Coloreds' (mixed race) population has about
five children per family and state correctly, like the Moslems, that
"Our children are our weapons."
The ubiquitous injectable abortifacient Depo-Provera is administered
to girls as young as 14 years of age in South Africa, and some girls'
boarding schools, on the advice of Planned Parenthood, inject every
girl with the drug before they go on holiday. This is a classic example
of how little Planned Parenthood and the population planners think of
the rights and intelligence of children and of their parents.
Depo-Provera: It's Good Enough For Them.
Depo-Clinivir in Germany) was banned until very recently in the United
States and Israel because of its extremely dangerous side effects. This
drug, which was considered much too dangerous for lily-White American
women to use until it was refined, was peddled forcefully in more than
80 developing countries, including Indonesia, Kenya, and Mexico.
The Upjohn Company applied to the United States Food and Drug
Administration for approval of Depo-Provera in 1976. The FDA turned down
the application because Depo-Provera had been found to cause breast
cancer in animals, and that some users will suffer "possibly even
permanent infertility." The country's leading pharmacologists
sanction the use of Depo-Provera "only if the possibility of
permanent infertility is acceptable to the patient."
Statistics by Upjohn and the National Cancer Institute show that
women who have been injected with Depo-Provera develop cervical cancer
(which usually metastasizes) at rates of up to 9.1 times that of the
Women who are unknowingly pregnant and are injected with Depo-Provera
have borne children with congenital heart defects, abnormal development
of the sexual organs and the possibility of genital cancer later in
life. These effects are similar to those experienced by the daughters of
women who had taken diethylstilbestrol (DES).
Case Study: Nigeria.
In developing countries with large populations,
the Population Council, the International Planned Parenthood Federation,
and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID, a
part of the Department of State) use effective CIA-like tactics to
infiltrate government ministries and the press and entertainment
industry, recruit "focus groups" of local people upon which to
test their theories, and undermine indigenous values and traditions.
According to International Family Planning Associates (IFPA)
researcher Elizabeth Sobo, the objective of such intensive programs
"... is to literally saturate the media with birth-control themes,
and at the same time to make it appear that these ideas represent
nothing more than a spontaneous change in local customs."
These programs feature not just localized spots, but massive
nationwide and even continentwide media and propaganda saturation
As an example, a written contract between the United States Agency
for International Development (USAID) and the Nigerian government
outlines the various points of the country's proposed family planning
program as follows;

Although the problem is serious and the prognosis grim, some people
are beginning to wake up to the existence of the massive programs of
covert genocide being practiced in Africa. The Information Project for
Africa, Post Office Box 43345, Washington, DC 20010, in particular
fights United States contraceptive imperialism, and anyone interested in
population control programs in Africa and what to do about them should
contact this group.
One has only to be familiar with the philosophies
and quotations of Margaret Sanger and current abortionists such as
Edward Allred to realize that the above statement on the racism of
population control by K. Agnes White is absolutely correct.
As Allred stated in an October 12, 1980 San Diego Union
I would do free abortions in Mexico to stem the new
influx of Hispanic immigrants. Their lack of respect for democracy and
social order is frightening ... When a sullen black woman of 17 or 18
can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a
burden to all of us, it's time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles,
having babies for welfare is the only industry the people have."
It is laughable that the far Left will not condemn such blatant
Because "reproductive rights" are much higher on their
priority list than mere racism.
So, of course, they ignore such atrocities happening right here at
home. For example, in 1976, the U.S. Government's General Accounting
Office charged that the Indian Health Service had sterilized more than
3,000 Native American women in a four-year period by using elements of
coercion including using consent forms that did not fully inform women
of the hazards, or which carried a thinly-veiled threat that they would
lose their jobs unless they consented to the surgery.
Of course, any pro-life activist knows that we have been fighting
against this insidious form of "contraceptive imperialism" for
decades, so it is most amusing to note that most Socialist groups
actually blame Right-wing fanatics (that's us, gang) for these abuses.
The Unbreakable Link Between Abortion and Population Control.
The right to abortion, an inalienable right of all women, is an
integral part of population control.
Lawrence Lader, co-founder of the National Abortion Rights Action
Pro-abortionists tell us all the time that
contraception frequently fails, and that abortion is required as a
backup if "women are to control their own lives."
Indeed, as described in Chapter 99, "Contraception Effectiveness
and Use," there are more than two million contraceptive
failures in the United States every year, half of which end in
Larry Lader, the king of the abortion propagandists, recognized the
"value" of abortion in controlling the population in our own
country even before Roe v. Wade; "Above all, the abortion
revolution should intensify the trend towards population control. In
1972, about 600 thousand legal abortions were performed nationwide a
figure that accounted in large measure for the decline in births below
the replacement level of 2.110."
Extending the Principle.
The population controllers have flooded
scores of developing countries with IUDs, birth control pills, and
condoms. They also correctly recognize that tens of millions of
contraceptive failures will occur in these countries.
It is therefore absolutely inevitable that the controllers will
vigorously implement abortion programs in these countries as
"backstops" for their ineffective contraception programs. As
the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) acknowledges,
"It has been clear for a long time that family planning campaigns
[without abortion] are largely ineffectual in producing a lower rate of
Population statistician Emily C. Moore confirmed the UNFPA view when
she said that
The population explosion compels us to take every
means necessary to curb our growth rate. Since contraception alone seems
insufficient to reduce fertility to the point of no-growth, and since
population experts tell us that eliminating unwanted fertility [is
necessary], we should permit all voluntary means of birth control
(including abortion) so as to avert the necessity for coercive
Notice that Moore implies that, if she and her ilk do not get their
way (i.e., unlimited free abortion and contraception), then they will
try coercion, regardless of whether it is in this country or developing
Going One Step Further.
Just as contraception leads inevitably to
abortion, whether it be on a national or an international scale,
abortion inevitably leads to euthanasia, as described in Chapter 110,
"Infanticide: The Abortion-Euthanasia Link."
Dr. Robert H. Williams asserted more than twenty years ago that
Planning to prevent over-population of the earth must include the
practice of euthanasia, either negative or positive ... Therefore, since
we must restrict the rate of population increase, we should also be
giving careful consideration to the quality as well as the quantity of
people generated ... We doubtless will not get support from all
religious groups and it would be best not to force these and other
disagreeing groups to conform unless non-conformity would affect society
or significant segments of it too adversely.
Williams' thinly-veiled threat of coercion against
"disagreeing groups" in the future if their
"non-conformity" would "adversely affect society."
Williams and his cohorts, of course, would reserve such a judgment to
themselves and would implement the coercion if they have the power at any time they felt was appropriate. Notice also that the above rationale
is precisely that used by the government of China in justifying
its forced-abortion program, which is described in Chapter 50 of Volume
II, "Forced Abortions."
Cultures and civilizations rise and fall with the populations
on which they are based ... This is the lesson of history.

Samuel L. Blumenfeld. The Retreat From Motherhood.
Rochelle, New York: Arlington House. 1975, 222 pages, hardback. This
interesting book by a pro-abortion former editor and sociologist
attempts to pin down the roots of Neofeminism and does a pretty
good, if rather disjointed job. Although he is definitely anti-life,
Blumenfeld has strung together a large quantity of evidence that shows
the influence of the population controllers and media in the mass
turning away from childbearing to abortion and contraception. Blumenfeld
feels that there is really no hope for us, and that we will eventually
exterminate ourselves (but he neglects the role of religion, as well).

alarming shortage of births in Europe and the United States, low
fertility in an evolutionary perspective, population models, the
changing values of society and their impacts upon decreased fertility,
demographic impacts of below-replacement birthrates, impacts on

more attention to the value judgments that make many of us think that
people can ever be thought of as a "problem."

book purely because it gives us insight into the mind of Dr. Carl

reading this book, one can examine the very roots and beginnings of the
anti-life, anti-natalist philosophy.

June 1992. This fact-filled booklet aggressively debunks the eight
primary myths set forth by the population controllers: The earth cannot
feed us, the exponential growth rate is a population time bomb, planet
Earth is too small, excessive population is incompatible with national
economic health, Earth does not have enough natural resources,
contraception and abortion are necessary, population growth causes
severe environmental impacts, and the Chinese forced-abortion program is
a good policy. Available from Human Life International, 7845-E Airpark

book exposes the real agenda and identities of what the authors call the
"social elite:" The rich population controllers, banks, media
moguls, and other institutions who appeal to American values but who are
working to destroy them at the same time. The Isaacs describe who the
elite are; where their money comes from; and what their true goals are.

Population Research Institute, Post Office Box 2024, Baltimore, Maryland

how the population controllers are not only targeting families in other
nations, but in ours as well. She demonstrates the myths of
overpopulation, the false statistics used to attack the family, and the
secular humanist war on the family.

telephone: (815) 434-7905. One of the most popular myths of our time is
the Malthusian notion that the world's population is exploding, so that
disaster is inevitable (even imminent). Therefore, the population
control fanatics state as fact that governments and individuals have the
duty to control procreation, no matter what means are necessary. The
population controllers use billions of our tax dollars to advance U.S.
"contraceptive imperialism" all over the world. This book
examines and effectively debunks the basic assumptions of the
international population control network.
Thomas R. Malthus. An Essay On Population.
New York: Dutton,
1941. This is the book that began the original population panic. Malthus'
general theory was that population increases exponentially while
resources increase arithmetically, a situation which cannot continue
indefinitely. This theory has since been proven simplistic and
incomplete, but it still serves as the linchpin theory for the
Father Paul Marx. Confessions of a Pro-Life Missionary.
353 pages, hardback, softback. Published by Human Life International,
7845-E Airpark Road, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20879. This is an excellent
account of Father Marx' travels all over the world since the founding of
HLI in 1981. It is a firsthand account of his battle against U.S.
'contraceptive imperialism,' International Planned Parenthood, and
abortion in dozens of countries.
James A. Michener. The Quality of Life.
New York: J.P.
Lippincott Company. 1970, 120 pages. The early 1970s saw an explosion of
interest in the population "problem," and many famous people
spoke up to denounce mankind as an undesirable element 'infesting' the
earth. The author James Michener takes a crack at "quality of
life" here by attempting to tell us how we can best respond to
various problems caused by racial strife, education, crimes and drugs.
But we all know where his emphasis really is: His last chapter on
the problems is entitled "The Population Cancer."

Ph.D. because he revealed details of China's forced-abortion policy,
outlines various Chinese government policies and their impacts on the
common Chinese worker and rural dweller. Chapter 9 of his book,
"Birth Control: A Grim Game of Numbers," deals with China's
forced-abortion and one-child policy, which leads also to female
infanticide when the first baby is a girl.

Population Growth and National Security.
The Humanist Press, 7
Harwood Drive, Post Office Box 146, Amherst, New York 14226. 1984, 265
pages. This book is praised by Larry Lader and Paul Ehrlich, which clues
us in to its contents. Sure enough, it is a rather unrestrained screed,
filled with great quotes demonstrating the bigotry and the totalitarian
and intolerant nature of the Humanists and population controllers.
Mumford's thesis is that the Vatican and the Catholic Church are
attempting to destroy democracy and even the world by encouraging
uncontrolled breeding. All of the old tired slogans are trotted out: The
Vatican runs the United States, dissident priests are quoted as
authoritative sources, and Catholics are portrayed as mindless drooling

Ben J. Wattenberg. The Birth Dearth.
New York: Pharos Books,
1987. 182 pages. Reviewed by Rupert J. Ederer in the April 1988 Fidelity
Magazine. This is a very interesting book. The author is a secularist
with an extensive professional background in demographics. He is
concerned that, one of these days, we Westerners will be inundated with
"babies of color" from the less-developed nations because of
their high birth rate. Therefore, he implies, we in the developed
nations should get to work and produce as many babies as possible to
fend off losing our Western identity. Alternatively, of course, we could
flood the rest of the world with abortion and contraception techniques,
so that their birthrates could be as racially suicidal as ours. This
important book exposes the racist roots of the antinatalist movement and
its obsession with differential fertility. Of course, the author cannot
eschew abortion, artificial contraception, and sex education, which
obviously brought about the problem in the first place! Some of the book
is useful to Christians, such as the effects of the
"one-child" on only children, and the social and economic
effects of the "greying" of America.
