“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it” Joseph Goebbels

For over 200 years grave fears have been expressed concerning the earth’s capacity to cope with an exponential population growth.
It is obvious that the calamitous famines and widespread starvation repeatedly forecast over the last 200 years, have never eventuated. Yet the call for population control continues to persist.
This paper briefly reviews the history of population control incentives, identifies the leading proponents and considers the courses of action that have been adapted to implement population control. Nonetheless, the need to question the validity of the over-population thesis prevails.
Few valid explanations for the inability of human kind to sustain (provide food for) the earth’s expanding population have ever been confirmed. Moreover, no consistent correlation between population distribution (density) and poverty or the converse, economic abundance, has ever been corroborated.
In exploring the ‘raison d'être’ of the fear mongering ‘elite’, it is clear, whether consciously or unconsciously, that devious and perverse ‘eugenic’ projects have been instituted. The Western power base remains apprehensive of development and economic maturity in the 3rd world nations.
An affluent hierarchy of politically powerful individuals and organisations, together with mega-rich foundations, consistently pursue ‘reproductive health’ programmes as opposed to disproportionately low levels of effort directed to provide health care, clean water or encouragement, to self-sufficient agriculture.
The demographic consequences of the methods applied by the ‘population controllers’ is creating increasing economic and welfare distresses and drastic differential population distributions: manifest in particular by an increasing Islamic populace.
The same ‘elite’ proponents of global population control now link their thesis to sustainability, the environment and global warming; again reinforcing the over-population fears. Advocates for religious syncretism and inter-faith (e.g. URI) have likewise attached themselves to the global population cause.
Meanwhile, global population numbers are now in decline and agricultural food provision (where civil strife and government ineptness is absent) continues to outpace population growth.
During the recent furore over the ‘chemical abortion pill’ or rather the RU 486 procedure, the national [Australian] emphasis was the principal focus. Aspects of this and other abortifacient chemicals, used in ‘population control’ projects in other parts of the world, were not addressed.
Tracing the history of RU 486 we are soon led to the ‘Population Council’ and their capture of the RU 486 patent rights, and the funding for its manufacture, predominately in China and distribution as mifepristone (RU 486) and misoprostol throughout the third world.
The real background and broader issue behind this debate however, concerns global overpopulation and the competence of world expertise to feed its growing mass of people.
Two excessive but opposing views address the global population theme. These we could title as the optimistic and pessimistic extremes.
A minority optimistic ideal that insists that world population should be able to grow without restraint, even to as many as 50 billion people provided humanity is able to agree to lifting barriers to food production and its distribution.
The dominant, and controlling view, is that limits must be imposed on population growth. This is the view held by the powerful and wealthy elite of this world convinced that the world population must be restricted at all or any cost.
This review attempts to examine the evidences for global overpopulation and to critically appraise the aggressive methods used to implement population control.
2.0 Over-population—Historic background.
Concerns relating to overpopulation are not new. The ancient Greeks, for instance, [believed to be at the behest of Aristotle] authorised homosexual practices, in particular pederasty, as a means of providing sexual release without the consequences of population growth.
Modern history however, attributes the issue of overpopulation to the work of, and the 1798 essay by, Rev. Thomas Malthus –1766-1864. Malthus’ proposed the thesis that human population growth would outpace the earth’s capacity to feed the ‘flood’ of the earth’s masses. He further identified that the poor of the world were unproductive and that increasing their number would lead to disaster. Consequently, the elite ‘masters’ should not waste resources to help them; such was the groundwork for an eugenic ideal.
Appreciation that living standards decrease when there are too many mouths to feed and that this results in even more poor people, began as the prevailing view; still seized upon to this day.
A growing number of present-day critics of the neo-malthusian elite note however, that population growth, of itself, is not a cause of poverty but rather it is poverty that leads to population growth.
In contemporary human societies there now appears an inverse relationship between per capita income and fertility rate; namely, as poverty decreases so too the population. Moreover, over the last 200+ years evidence of Malthus’ predicted world wide famines has not materialised.
Thomas Malthus’ essay on the ‘Principle of Population’ did however, have a profound impact upon Charles Darwin; colouring his concept of an evolutionary theory and his thesis of natural selection. Hence, the extended title for his– ‘Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection and the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.’
Malthus, together with Darwin, prompted a belief for favouring the fit at the expense of the unfit. This of course is the basis for what Francis Galton; cousin of Darwin called ‘eugenics’ or good births.
Francis Galton taught that people have either good genes (eugenic) or bad (dysgenic) and good racial stock will degenerate unless breeding is restricted to the eugenic kind.
The eugenic ideal was further advanced by Margaret Sanger, founder of the American Birth Control League and later in 1934, Planned Parenthood; who initially opposed helping the poor. Planned Parenthood might try to disguise Margaret Sangers eugenic heritage (by amongst other things ignoring the ‘negro project’) yet, as acknowledged by Alan Guttmacher when he succeeded her as President of the PP Federation of America–“ we are merely walking down the path that Mrs Sanger carved out for us.”1
In the early 1970s, Dr. Malcolm Potts [First Medical Director of International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) -1968-80.] recognized that, without widespread abortion, it would not be possible to implement any family planning whose purpose it was to limit population growth. Thus, IPPF has, for almost 40 years boasted an absolute commitment to abortion on demand.2
Moving on we come to Julian Huxley (founder of the UNESCO in 1947). Huxley had direct links with the British Population Investigation Commission and the Eugenics Society. His directorship of UNESCO laid a foundation for a global population control agenda that still pervades UN agencies and numerous NGO’s. In particular the UN Population Fund formerly the UN Fund for Population Activities- the acronym remains UNFPA.
Eugenic ideals also attracted the attention of the ‘Rockefellers’ who in the late 1930’s , funded the Kaiser Willem Institute in Germany. The Rockefeller foundation, following the embarrassing consequences of post war American occupation in Japan approved of the Eugenic protection act- legalising abortion in that country. The in 1952 in company with Frederick Osborn [ex-president of the American Eugenics Society] John D. Rockefeller founded the Population Council.
Two principal goals of the Population Council have, over many years, remained unchanged
to convince government leaders in poor nations that they have a serious population problem.
Solving this problem can be achieved through (Council aided and approved) population control.
Rockefeller funds have amongst other causes provided for the Kinsey Report 3 which launched the sexual revolution. Their funds have aided in the development of the contraceptive pill, the IUD and more recently rights to the RU 486 patent and its (Chinese) manufacture. Rockefeller funds have also supported the growth of Feminist activism, promoting in particular Betty Friedan and her 1963– “Feminine Mystique”.
Alan Guttmacher in 1963, then President of Planned Parenthood, confided that laws protecting the unborn could only be changed inch by inch.4 He has thus promoted this social revolution in stages; initially introduced by fraudulent and deceptive propaganda, culminating in the infamous Roe V Wade judgement in favour of abortion in America in 1973.
Propaganda of lies and deceit can still be found permeating ‘Population Control’ agencies.
The cause of abortion on demand has infected not only the US but many other countries throughout the world. Radical feminist Germaine Greer in her book ‘Sex and Destiny’ describes how the eugenics movement went underground only to re-emerge in the guise of the global over-population threat. The Am. Eugenics Society’s activities, for instance, surrendered to support the Family Planning Association, Planned Parenthood and International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF]. Yet a strong eugenic emphasis remains for discouraging certain groups from reproducing.
Paul Ehrlich’s convictions published in his “Population Bomb” in 1968 stirred the imagination of a new ‘elite’ family of over-population scare mongers. Fortunately, his fear filled forecast that – “in the 70’s the world would undergo famine and hundreds and millions of people would be starved to death.” has yet to be fulfilled.
Further comments on the identity of over-population advocates, their various foundations and organisations follow under other headings.

3.0 The Global Population Control Allies.
Global over-population fears appear to be sustained by the so called BIG LIE Theory; namely –‘if you repeat a lie often enough people will soon believe it and the media will be quick to promote it.’………… ref.. Joseph Goebbels
With this in mind John Cobin –Times Examiner 15 Sept. 2004 –defined the ‘fear mongering’ population controllers as Liberal Ideological Environmentalists – the LIE’s.
This band of ‘over-population believers’ maintain that the present global crisis results from
1. rapid unsustainable population growth, and
2. resource dilapidation
both contributing to global warming or climate change leading to environmental degradation as a major threat to human existence.
Many of the elite and powerful in our modern world with direct association to wealthy leaders and their philanthropic foundations remain captivated with Malthusian ideas and whether, consciously or unconsciously , trend to hold to eugenic ideals. Otherwise, why the continual focus upon the black, yellow and brown skin third world communities?
Regardless of any or all evidences to the contrary, such people and their foundations, show little willingness to slow their population control agenda and the persistent focus on reproductive health and [coercive] family planning, as a guise for encouraging large scale abortion and sterilisation on 3rd world womanhood.
Moreover, the ‘Population Control – FIRM’ maintains an effective stranglehold on the world’s political and financial institutions. Many would be quick to rebut with the comment that for three decades that the FIRM has reaped the rewards for effort in that more than 30 of the world’s most populous countries have now demonstrated drastic reductions in fertility statistics; but at what human cost?
Admittedly the world population has over the last (20th) century multiplied ~4 times from 1.6 billion to 6 billion however, the real gross domestic product over the same 100 years expanded 20 to 40 times. It is the uneven distribution of this wealth and its benefits, that has been so selfishly inequitable.
4.0 Over-population –A rationale.
The wealthiest fifth of this world’s population consumes more than 66 times of this earth’s resources relative to the poorest one fifth. Acknowledged or not, this leads to common fears held by the wealthy consumers that there are insufficient resources available for the over-populated nations to ever attain to the patterns of and living standards of, the western industrialised world. Some have dared to suggest that if every person on the Indian sub-continent were to use the same level of western packaging, they would bury themselves in waste. Other calculations suggest that each single person in the industrial world consumes 6-8 times as much any one in the third or under-developed world.
It is hard to perceive how or why, the richest moguls of the western world would ever genuinely, let alone altruistically, seek to sacrifice their possessions to see people in the third world attain to their standard of living; hence, their support for ‘population control’.
If the west is unwilling to make the sacrifices needed to share the world’s resources with the masses of the developing world then ways must be found to decrease the population in these developing nations. Hence, the goal of family planning and reproductive health programmes is an evidence of a desire to preserve the present political geography of world power.
Meanwhile, the special needs of these people for clean water, good seed, self sufficient agriculture schemes and a safe homeland appear to be insignificantly or insufficiently, addressed.
5.0 Overpopulation Quotes
The following provides a brief overview of quotes made by leading authorities concerning their fears and remedies, relating to global population growth. An attempt has been made to place them in rough chronological order.
Undoubtedly the first significant quotations are those recorded by Rev. Thomas Malthus in 1798 in his Essay on the Principle of Population, . This thesis however, that overpopulation would destroy the world unless war, famine and disease rose to check human growth -- has proven to be dead wrong. Nevertheless, Malthus became the father of population control; he frightened leaders of British society with the claim that the arithmetic growth forces of food production could never be capable of keeping pace with the much greater exponential growth force of population increase.

“The early millionaires brought with them an eugenics concern. Meanwhile today’s [mega rich] philanthropists genuinely believe they can solve the world’s problems---war, poverty, disease, through population control AND controlling the world’s population is ambitious enough for them.”
6.0 Billionaire Foundations and Personnel Sponsoring Population Control.
Some of the richest men in this world through their Philanthropic Foundations 1 provide funds in support of projects aimed at reducing global population growth. These include [or have included] those named after their billionaire sponsors…. Rockefeller, Ford, Ted Turner, George Soros, Bill Gates, William Buffett & Hewlett Packard. Many or all of them are linked through the Funders Network.
Exposing the enormous influence of Billionaire funding for world wide population control is Stephen Mosher and his Population Research Institute. Mosher contends that too many wealthy white men are spending hundreds and millions of dollars to contraceptualize, sterilize and abort, poor brown, yellow and black women in the developing world. It’s a scary thought.
Bill Gates, Ted Turner, George Soros, Warren Buffett and David Packard have all given away much of their money to international family planning programs aimed at curbing population growth. Together they have access to personal assets exceeding the combined gross domestic product of over 48 of the least-developed nations in the world. Their funds however, are directed essentially for population control and environmental issues.
The following table from the Population Research Institute [Stephen Mosher] lists the top foundations giving to pro-abortion –‘population control’-causes, both foreign and domestic use, in 2000. All figures are in millions of US. dollars.

Grants from these multi-millionaire foundations are linked through the Funders Network2 which acts as kind of coalition. The Network receives requests and directs aid moneys in support of population issues. “A high proportion of these funds are directed to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights.”
A brief account of a small selection of these funding agencies follows–
6.1 William Buffett
Since 1981, the Buffett name has been linked to ‘family health’ programs, disbursing some $197 million in charitable donations. However, in 2003 the Berkshire Hathaway Board 3 made a decision to cease donating (undoubtedly embarrassed by the projects sponsored) Notwithstanding, in May 2006 William Buffett pledged the bulk of his $44 billion fortune (~$31b) in support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Which foundation seems to exhibit priorities essentially consistent with furthering the ideals of world population control.
William Buffett's name has been associated with some of the most radical aspects of the population control. In 1994, $2 million was given to the Population Council, to fund US. clinical trials of Mifepristone (RU-486) initiated by Joseph Pike’s Danco Co. Other grants in this US. RU 486 project were provided by George Soros’ Open Society and David and Lucille Packard Foundation.4
Buffett provided a further $2 million to Family Health International [FHI] for the distribution of quinacrine hydrochloride, the chemical used to sterilizes a woman by burning her fallopian tubes. Although Quinacrine is illegal in the U.S., it has been used, often coercively, in Vietnam, India, and other nations. During the late 1990’s another grant of $20 million was made to International Projects Assistance Services (IPAS) which manufactures and distributes manual vacuum aspirators [MVA’s], used for performing abortions in the Third World.
MVA’s were first invented by Dr. Malcolm Potts; First Medical Director of IPPF (1968-80 )
& Harvey Karman.5
Other Buffett linked funds have provided support to Family Health International (FHI) for evaluation of quinacrine sterilisation and for the manufacture of ‘manual vacuum aspirators’ for third world distribution by International Projects Assistance Services(IPAS)
Other population control agencies enjoying Buffett largesse have been Planned Parenthood both National (US) and International, The Centre for Reproductive Law and Policy and Catholics for a Free Choice.
In effect, the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation continues as the quiet force in the controversial area of population control.
6.2 George Soros
George Soros (himself a father of 5) through his Open Society Inst.6 has funded the US Nationwide Mifepristone Affiliate Readiness Project backing media advertising and training programmes for medical (chemical) abortion training; with a pledge of $600,000
The Soros foundation provided the funds needed to pioneer the Abortion Rights Mobilisation RU 486 clinical trials in the US. With additional funds from John Merck Foundation 15 medical centres were provided with RU 486 for ‘evaluation’ by 3000 women.
Ellen Chesler author of ‘Women of Valour– Margaret Sanger and the IPP’ has directed Soros’ backed Program for Reproductive Health & Rights; assisting in the allotment of National (US) Network of Abortion Funds.
Soros’ Open Society Inst. is quite openly political in its aim– “to protect laws governing reproductive health care, especially abortions… to support public opinion research….to combat anti choice activities in support of a campaign to gain widespread awareness and acceptance of emergency contraception. ”
Soros’ foundation has provided the not for profit vehicle for the Council on Foreign
Relations7,8. to filter tax money in support of population control programs.
6.3 Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
The Gates Foundation is a patron for a wide range of world wide ‘reproductive-health’ programmes, funding research to improve birth control. Planned Parenthood, for instance has received $34 million from the Gates Foundation out of a total of $10.5 billion worldwide.
Notwithstanding, on 5 Nov. 1999 Trevor Neilson, spokesman for the Gates foundation, assured his audience that while the ‘Foundation’ maintains concern for overpopulation and ‘family health problems’ it holds to – “ as a policy the Gates Foundation doesn’t fund abortion services of any kind.” Jaquelline Fuller (another foundation spokesperson) has also commented that while the foundation has provided in excess of $10.5 billion the funds were earmarked for Planned parenthood programs other than the provision of abortion.
Former President-Gloria Feldt- of Planned Parenthood has affirmed that the giving from the ‘Foundation’ is not used for abortion services. Yet Planned Parenthood itself is clearly one of the world’s largest providers of abortion services.
The recent augmentation of the Gate’s Foundation with a legacy of over $30 billion from William Buffett elevates the Gates Foundation to a pinnacle position as the world’s largest private funding agency.
Historically the Foundation has committed significant funds in 1998 to AVSC (Association for Voluntary Surgical Contraception– sterilization);.internationally a major player in global and domestic population control,
August 22, 1999 the Gates Foundation donated $6 Billion to research effort targeting malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. This Foundation also wanted to lower the costs of any newly developed vaccines. The Foundation supports programs in global health and learning, with the hope that as we move into the 21st century, advances in these critical areas will be available for all people. To date, Gates has set aside $17 billion for his charitable foundation
November 20, 1999, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation joined UNICEF in its Efforts to Prevent Newborn Deaths in the Developing World. $26 million was used to fight and eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT), a disease responsible, in 1998, for nearly 250,000 deaths in developing nations. Funds were available for the distribution of clean delivery kits and provided health education in 57 developing countries.
Gates Foundation 9 has helped UCSF Researchers evaluate birth-control devices in Africa; in the battle against HIV/AIDs.
It is difficult to envisage just how the Gates Foundation can continue to provide funding aid to organisations, dedicated to providing access to abortion and sterilization yet still maintain oversight over the funds so that they are not used, either directly or indirectly, to promote abortion techniques.
For instance the Gates Foundation recently [20 Feb. 2002] funded IPPF to coordinate a world wide gathering of ‘reproductive health experts’ and representatives from USAID, UNFPA, PATH, the Gates Foundation, Columbia University, and the CONCEPT Foundation in Afghanistan. Initiatives included; reproductive health services*; non-prescription, social marketing distribution of oral contraceptives, injectables and condoms; and training of selected midwives and paramedical workers to undertake emergency obstetric care.
* Though abortion did not rank explicit mention the expression– ‘reproductive health services’, in United Nations parlance, always includes abortion.
Particular concern, at this gathering, related to the resistance to contraception, voluntary sterilization and obstetric care, prevalent in Islamic countries.
A commentary from Population Action International states….. "Although human growth rates are slowing, human numbers are still increasing" yet this organization still claims on its Website, www.populationaction.org. "More family planning is needed" to slow population growth rates.
Then Rose Berg, a Gates' spokeswoman, comments on the population question in quite a different context. "It's an access and equity issue" says Berg. "Grants from the William H. Gates Foundation are made to ‘women's reproductive health’ whether we can agree on the exact trends or not."
It would be refreshing indeed to learn that even a small proportion of the Funding Foundation’s and the Population Control agencies grants were also promoting alternative ‘pregnancy crisis’ help other than termination.
6.4 Packard Foundation
The David and Lucile Packard Foundation was set up by Hewlett-Packard co-founder David Packard in 1964. A large portion of the Foundation's funds continue to be devoted to population control. While the Gates Foundation gives public assurances that they do not provide financial aid for abortion the Packard Foundation does not express any such embarrassment. For instance, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation 10 aided Danco's efforts to market mifepristone [RU 486] to the tune of $10 million.
Up until 2000 some $9 billion had been pledged in support of various educational programs for sexual heath including, safe-sex, and aid to organisations providing access to ‘safe’abortion.
Sarah C. Clark, when director of the population program at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation expressed the view that– “lack of ‘choice’ and opportunity traps people in poverty”– adding –“- "we must never forget that it is poverty, not choice, that drives people to live in risk-prone areas."
This Foundation recently pledged $21 million for 40 grants to fund ‘population control’ programs, both in the US and worldwide.11 Ethiopia was a primary target of several programs, including $3 million for family planning and ‘reproductive health services’, and one to the German Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevolkerung to continue its adolescent reproductive health activities in Ethiopia. Other grants include over $7.5 million to the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League Foundation, $1 million to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, and $750,000 to Population Action International, which is committed to universal access to family planning and related health services including abortion.
The Foundation has given P26 Million Grant to the Reach Out Foundation in the Philippines for Family Planning Initiative, to assist the this government’s family planning program.
Other substantial sums have been provided for Ethiopia, Uganda and Vietnam for the distribution of contraceptives.
In 2001 $600,000 was given to IPPF to further their sex and reproductive health services to adolescents in Brazil, Ecuador and Peru.
$2 million to the Centre for Reproductive Rights was provided to fight legal issues.
In 2004 close companions with the Packards, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
Population Programs under made grants totalling $32,871,945.12
Donald Critchlow author of –“Intended Consequences”, writes– “Today’s philanthropists have a genuine belief that they can solve this world’s problems---- whether these be war, pollution, poverty or disease simply through population control—something like controlling the world population is a common ambition for them all.”
These population control advocates seem to hold the view that 3rd world parents are so irresponsible that they will breed themselves to destruction unless the ‘cultured elite’ do something about it. Strangely, radical feminist Germaine Greer, notes in her book- ‘Sex and Destiny’, that parents from all cultures have historically used all manner of indigenous means to capably plan their families; often they have large families because they want to. One modern day observation is that when people precipitate to urban growth centres they maintain smaller family units. The choice in rural, self-reliant areas, is for larger families.

7.0 Eugenics and Racism Endure
Eugenics and racist ideals may well have found their origins with Malthus and his immediate and succeeding contemporaries. Nevertheless, it advanced into the early 20th century by Margaret Sanger and her supporting associates. Its acceptable global dominance however, received a major set back when embarrassed by projects advocated by the infamous Third Reich (Adolf Hitler). Yet it remained strong in the US with the creation of The Human Betterment Foundation by philanthropist E.S. Gosney.1 Its first President Paul Popenoe was also a member of the established American Eugenics Society, funded by John D. Rockefeller and Max Eastman. From these foundations the World Wide Population Control movement has expanded. In the US some 20 States once supported laws which allowed for obligatory sterilization. The CRACK program formed by Barbara Harris, Stanton; Cal. is one example of present day forced sterilization of women addicted to drugs. [CRACK–Children Requiring a Caring Kommunity] Similar activities were challenged in the high court in Australia in 1992.2
One tributary flowing from the leaders of Human Betterment was the formation of the Association for Voluntary Surgical Contraception (AVSC). Another incarnation, used the name Birthright International. AVSC has been at the forefront of pro-coercive or other encouragement, for sterilization and contraception as population control measures; embracing abortion and other ‘reproductive health’ projects.
Recently AVSC [8 March 2001] changed its name to Engender Health.3 Its sponsored ‘reproductive health and family planning’ projects however, remain unchanged. Both male and female sterilisation are encouraged.
Sterilization, the ‘ideal contraceptive’ and injectable contraception, remain the preferred programs supported by ‘affluent’ Western donors in the third world.
Tracing another tributary, the involvement of the UN is encountered. In 1966 population control was officially authorised by the General Assembly by commending nations willing to decrease their populations. The following year the UN Fund for Population Activities [UNFPA ] was launched; followed by other UN groups UNESCO, UNDF and UNICEF, backing up the population control incentives of UNFPA.
UNFPA proudly acclaims itself 4–“the world’s largest international source of funding for population and reproductive health programs”. In 2003 it zealously stated–“ We advocate close attention to population problems and help mobilise resources to solve them.”
More than 25% all population control assistance from donor nations and private foundations to developing countries is channelled through UNFPA
In 1971 IPPF was recognised by the UN as a major NGO and associate of UN Economic and Social Control, UNICEF and the World Health Organisation [WHO]; attracting financial backing.5 The World Bank in 1968 had already determined that its foreign aid funding would be tied to population control advances.
By 1976 the National Security Council commended the World Bank
The World Bank has for over 30 years provided in excess of $2.5 billion in grants to 130 reproductive health projects in some 70 countries.
In company with private funding from the foundations established by billionaire moguls [Rockefeller, Bergstrom, Buffett, Gates, Soros, Hewlett, Packard, Turner etc] the World Bank and UNFPA provides incredibly large financial contributions to ‘population control’ projects. Many of them co-ordinated through IPPF and associated like organisations [The Population Council, Concept Foundation, Engender Health, IPAS, Pathfinder Intl etc]
IPPF boasts an annual budget of $86 million covering offices in over 18 countries from Africa, though Asia and into Latin America.
7.1 Draper Family Connections.
The Draper family line provides strong links to eugenic ideology.
In 1932 General William H. Draper Jr. provided the finance for the International Eugenics Congress and appointed Dr. Ernst Ruaudin as Chief of the World Eugenics Movement-[Intl. Fed. of Eugenic Societies]
Ruaudin was a Swiss born psychiatrist with obvious Fascist sympathies He received grants from the Rockefeller Foundation to establish the Kaiser Wilhelm Inst. [previously Kraepelin Inst.] first in Munich then in Berlin . He founded the German Society for Race Hygiene. Ruaudin and his staff were chosen by Heinrich Himmler to form a task force of Heredity Experts to draft sterilization laws for the Third Reich– Law for the Prevention of Hereditary Diseases. These were adopted in July 1933 and authorised under Adolf Hitler’s signature. These laws were patterned after race laws already drawn up by the Rockefeller group and established after legislated statutes in the US State of Virginia.
General Draper went on to form the Population Crisis Committee/Council (recruiting ZPG –Generals Maxwell Taylor and William Westmoreland) and the Draper Fund which together with grants from the Rockefeller and Du Pont Foundations promoted the eugenic ideals for ‘population control’. He was instrumental in steering US public discussion relevant to the “population bomb” in non-white areas of the world; then, as advisor to Pres. Lyndon Johnson [1963-69] recommended the creation of USAID. This provided funds for ‘birth control’ in tropical ‘over-populated’ countries. This was said to safeguard America from the security threat of overpopulation in under-developed countries.7 [cf. Lyndon B. Johnson, Great Society Speech, 1964.] General Draper took a leading role in Planned Parenthood becoming an active Vice Chairman. In 1966 he was one of the first recipients of the Margaret Sanger award–“for his singular contributions……..to resolve the world population crisis.” And
In the early 70’s he was appointed by Pres. Nixon [1969-74] to the UN Population Commission.
This General’s son William H. Draper lll, in his turn, became a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Deputy Advisor on National Security in the Bush snr. Presidency [1989-93] He serves, amongst other Boards, on the Population Action International formed out Population Crisis Committee founded by his father.
In 1986 he was Head of the UN Development Program and Director of the USAID which according to a 1991 report he prepared was to be used– “to assist 254 million couples to be surgically sterilized over the 90’s”
The UNFPA now claims that 37% of Ibero-American and Caribbean women have been sterilized.
In 1992 USAID expended $300 million to achieve sterilization goals.
Kissinger, as a member of the Club of Rome, in 1974 supervised the production of National Security Study Memo 200 [declassified in 1989] This memo discussed the implications of population growth.8,9,10 This stated that population growth in the developing world would lead to a desire for self determination of their economies. Proposals were made that their populations must therefore be controlled. Even so this fact was to be withheld from the country's leaders. Amongst the countries specifically targeted were India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia, Colombia. and Indonesia.
Two respected US commanders in this new conflict were Maxwell Taylor and William Westmoreland, both members of the Population Crisis Council and Draper Fund. ...
7.2 Eugenics Summary
Population control is an elitist, coercive ideology having roots in eugenics and Malthusian economics. It is now linked with radical environmentalism and has significantly influenced both medicine and sadly, even Christian thinking. Eugenics theory persists in shaping social science, politics and medicine - particularly bioethics and ‘population control’ continues to be promoted as a panacea for the world's ills, particularly those related to the environment.
The infamous sterilization program sanctioned by Adolf Hitler under Third Reich –Law for the Prevention of Hereditary Diseased Offspring (drafted by Dr.Ruaudin) was instituted in 1933 yet this pales when compared with the mass sterilizations that have occurred throughout the Latin American countries in recent times. More than 200,000 women in rural Peru [supported by USAID] under former President Alberto Fujimori is but one example.
The national sterilization campaign launched in Bangladesh in Feb. 1997 sterilized over a two month period something like 60,000. This was undertaken merely to demonstrate the efficiency of Population Control and Family Planning Clinics. It has been reported that over 75,000 women were recruited.
In Brazil sterilization was regarded as an illegal procedure; at least up until 1997 yet it is estimated that 20-25 million sterilizations had been undertaken in Planned Parenthood clinics over preceding years.
The culture of sterilization in Brazil has become so pervasive that female employees must Proverbs 11 that they are sterile.
One population expert 12 commented that–“this means Brazil’s population bomb has been de-activated.”
The campaigns that continue to be conducted throughout India and runs to many multiple millions of women. Furthermore, it is now estimated that something like 40% of Chinese women of child bearing age have now been sterilized.
In 1979 a one child policy was instituted in mainland China.. Today, in spite of law reforms introduced to substantially reduce forceful or coercive methods, as from 2002, strong monetary and economic coercive incentives remain. In many regions reports of brutal tactics of inducement continue. Many examples of aggressive ‘incentives’ have been documented by the Population Research Institute. These reports are in striking contrast to the official UNFPA assertions that coercive sterilization programs can no longer be corroborated. One cannot help but concede that this latter view greatly assists in the restoration of USAID funding.
The one child policy in China attracted significant support from the UNFPA, the World Bank and IPPF. Private funding contributions were also made by both the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations.
In 1983 UNFPA awarded Qian Xin Xinzhong (Communist Leader & Minister in Charge of State Family Planning) with a special award for “implementing population policies on a massive scale.”
It was in 1998 that the Chinese government first notionally agreed to halt its one child policy while when UNFPA was invited to set up model family planning programs with help from IPPF in liaison with the Chinese Family Planning Association.
The formal UNFPA program now boasts that–
1. reproductive health is to be fully voluntary
2. Chinese women are now free to space their pregnancies
3. target quotas are now lifted
4. abortion is no longer vigorously promoted, and
5. coercive methods have been lifted.
The Population Reference Bureau lists in 2002 the following as relative proportion of child-bearing age (15-49) women who have been sterilized………
The most zealous of Population Controllers have long wanted to find an easy inexpensive method for female sterilization. Initially quinacrine hydrochloride seemed to provide the answer.
Werner Fornos [Pres. Population Institute] on 29 March 1999 wrote– “With our planet’s human numbers expecting to reach 6 billion late this year and since 97% of that growth is occurring in the developing world---it is obvious that there is a need for economical, safe and effective contraceptives.” Foros added in his communication to WHO and the FDA [respectively –Gro Harlem Brundtland Director Gen. and Jane Henney- FDA Commissioner]
“If quinacrine hydrochloride is given a clean bill of health we will have a low cost, non-surgical sterilization method–no operating rooms; no anaesthesia; no lengthy training etc …. This could go a long way toward ensuring that population stabilization will be achieved in time to save the planet…”
Quinacrine was originally used to combat malaria during WW ll . As a chemical means for inducing sterilization it is inserted as pellets or slurry into a women’s uterus causing burn scar tissue and effectively blocking the fallopian tubes.
The first large scale experiments using quinacrine was on 4000 Chilean women in the early 1970’s. Although banned by the FDA in the US in 1993 two Nth Carolina based population agencies, FHI and the Centre for Research on Population and Security, still pursued continued use. The latter centre [under direction of Dr’s Elton Kessel and Stephen Mumford]13 provided quinacrine pellets free for distribution in Asian and Latin American countries.
It was not until 1998 that the Supreme court of India banned quinacrine sterilization (QS) . Not withstanding, its clandestine use has continued in regions of India at least well into 2003.
Funding 14 for QS programs can be traced to the Ted Turner and Warren Buffett Foundations and other supporters of the Population Council.
Again in spite of the fact that the US FDA has taken steps to prevent both the manufacture distribution of QS there still remains an estimate, in over 20 countries some 120,000 women subjected to QS.; chiefly Viet Nam, India; Bangladesh and even Pakistan.
Even the AVSC have expressed their doubts over the safety and efficacy of QS ; largely due to the fact that women undergoing QS remain uninformed. The absence of significant animal testing programs before extending it to women is contemptible. It has therefore remained essentially unauthorised human experimentation.
One other significant reason for the lack of any further evaluation of quinacrine is because it is no longer under patent control; does not offer any profit potential and Western Pharmaceutical companies are hesitant to handle it due to potential liability risks.

8.0 Personnel Relationships.
The close associations between many of the leading personnel in responsible positions involved with aspects of ‘Population Control’ could well lead to the conclusion that they all belong to the same FIRM.
Starting at the top we have James D. Wolfensohn, the most recent past president of the World Bank; he also served as a Director on both the Rockefeller Foundation and the Population Council–participating on their respective finance committees.
The present Head of the ‘Population Council’ Dr. Peter J. Donaldson was formerly director of the Councils International programs and CEO of the Population Reference Bureau (1994-2003) Washington DC.
With George Soros we have his ‘Open Society Institute’ which includes a ‘reproductive rights group’ once headed by Ellen Cheslar who, in 1998, was also Chairman of the International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) who authorised the publication –Expanding [3rd world] Access to Safe Abortion – Strategies for Action.
Next we mention Ingar Brueggemann representative for the World Health Organisation [WHO] at the UN. She has held senior office within WHO yet over the period 1995-2002 served as Director General of IPPF. ( The new D.G. for IPPF is the former Executive Director of NZ Family Planning; Dr. Gill Greer)
Another who has served in various roles in Planned Parenthood is Daniel Pellegrom. He became President of and CEO of, Pathfinder International.
The current Director for Reproductive Health for the Gates Foundation; Dr. Gordon W. Parkin previously served with WHO and represented the UNPFA in China and worked 14 years for the Ford Foundation and served as Board Member on both PPFA and the Alan Guttmacher Inst.
Another strong advocate for the Chinese [one child] population programme Dr. Nafis Sadik has received notable awards for Family Planning, including Hugh More and Margaret Sanger awards and has served as Exec. Director of the UNFPA and was Special Advisor to the Sec. Gen. of the Cairo Population Conference in1994.
8.1 Population Action International [PAI]
PAI grew from the ‘Population Crisis Committee’ established by General William Draper Jr. who was instrumental, in 1932, for financing the International Eugenics congress and later appointing the Third Reich Eugenicist Dr. Ernst Ruaudin to lead the World Federation of Eugenic Societies.
Taking his father’s lead William H Draper lll officially launched PAI in 1965 . This ‘population control’ agency is presently headed by Amy Coen, who for 12 years was CEO of Planned Parenthood Chicago after working as Associate Director of the Southern regional Office of PP. Amy Coen leads a Board which includes William H. Draper lll and Dr. Nafis Sadik who has served as Exec. Director of the UNFPA.
8.2 The FIRM’s Global Links.
This is but a small selection of the personnel concerned with the ongoing ‘population control’ strategies and their connections. The common thrust has been to focus predominantly on what are euphemistically called ‘sexual & reproductive health’ issues; issues of family planning involving contraception, abortion and sterilization.
The devious intrigue occurring between ‘people in high places’ has clearly been exposed in the precipitate manner in which RU 486 was approved by the FDA in the US.
For instance, contrary to the Code of Federal Regulations -Immoral Articles Importation Prohibited under 19 Subsection 1305, which made it illegal to import the abortifacient RU 486; this code was deemed inapplicable in a memorandum between then Pres. Bill Clinton and the Director of Health & Human Services Donna Shalala and Mario Cuomo; both members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)– 19July 1996. Moreover, the Population Council, an associate corporation with CFR/CIA in 1994 was the recipient of the rights to RU486 apparently donated by the Hoechst Co. of which the French Roussel Uclav was a subsidiary.
Recourse to the following actions seem to have followed the failure to find any Western Pharmaceutical Co. to manufacture RU 486.
In 1989 the Concept Foundation initiated the creation of the Hua Lia Pharmaceutical Co. in China with assistance from the UNFPA, WHO and the World Bank, with further practical and financial aid from the Rockefeller Foundation. The goal being to bring inexpensive quality contraceptives and ‘reproductive health’ medication, to help population control in China and other South East Asian countries. [Concept Foundation Headquartered in Bangkok is now represented in over 30 countries including Latin America]
Joachin Oehler CEO for Concept Foundation has declared [Washington Post 11 Oct. 2000] that the primary goal for Hua Lian Co. was to produce RU 486 for large scale pregnancy control in China; including ‘emergency contraception’. There are now 3 such processing plants 2 in China and at least 2 in India.
Oehler recently undertook to manage 3, 4 (under the direction of the Rockefeller Foundation) an International Consortium for Emergency Contraception [ICEC] and injectables. These include Cyclofema; Postinor-2 and Norplant.
Gao Ersheng -Director of the Shanghai’s Inst. of Planned Parenthood Research has stated5 that more than half of China’s 10 million abortions each year are achieve by way of the mifepristone-misoprostol [RU 486] chemical procedure.
These practices are supported by a wide coalition of groups and privately funded agencies largely co-ordinated through the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health. (PATH) in Seattle.
Mary Meeker– Closing windows on the poor- 28 Nov. 1999

9.0 Weasel Words.
In George Orwell’s novel 1-1984- he coined an expression “New Speak”. This can best be defined as a devious use of language to confuse and propagandise a gullible community.
Orwell himself defined this kind of communication as –‘Political language….. designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.’
In today’s media ‘spin’ idiom, New Speak would now be known as ‘Weasel Words’ and best defined as deliberate misleading , or ambiguous language. According to Watson's Dictionary of Weasel Words, ‘these are the words of the powerful, the treacherous and the unfaithful, of spies, assassins and thieves. Bureaucrats and ideologues love them. Totalitarian states use weasel words to hide truth and conceal or complicate meaning’.
‘Population control’ communications have become characterised by misleading obfuscational and confusing concepts. 2, 3
The modern ‘pro-choice’ community have adapted the weasel word device for avoiding the use of ‘abortion’- and cower behind society’s inability to define ‘a person’ therefore everyone has their own ‘choice’. Pro-lifers are of course anti-abortion. ‘Pro-choicers’ are those who demand ‘reproductive rights’ but are never inclined to reproduce, since they have their choice, not to.
For example, take the classic expression–"I'm against abortion, but I support someone's ‘choice’ to have one." While noble-sounding on it's face value, it is really just a ‘copout’.
Why can’t each person be up front, either, be against abortion or for it?
Even the ‘neutral’ media create clever headlines –“Anti-abortion demonstrators anger the pro-choice activists.”
Never has language for propaganda been more effectively applied. For instance, what does this headline mean?– ‘Pro-choice is not pro-abortion!’ or ‘This issue is not about abortion but choice.’
Meanwhile, the womb is not a safe place for life to be nurtured.
‘Reproductive freedom’ is another slogan safeguard used to avoid employing the word abortion.
Various UN agencies and funding groups, in their turn, apply the expression ‘family planning programs’. The WHO uses ‘fertility regulation’ and to avoid the use of abortion identifies– ‘interrupting unwanted pregnancies’. ‘Reproductive services’ describe a wide field of ‘family planning’, ‘reproductive health’ and the ‘regulation of fertility’; all avoiding specific application of abortion.
The following verbal side step was recorded at the WHO Geneva– World Health Day-Safe Motherhood; 6 April 1998
Unwanted pregnancies can be reduced by improving people's access to high quality, client-oriented and gender-sensitive information and services that offer a range of methods appropriate for different people at different stages in their lives.
At the 50th Commission on the Status of Women at the UN New York; 27 Feb.-10 March 2006, women’s health issues addressed only ‘reproductive health’. This Commission did little, by way of recording any concern, for disease that kills, nor maternal health or child health just reproduction. ‘Fertility regulation’ was again defined, according the WHO as a ‘right’ which included the ‘interruption of pregnancy’. Oops! doesn’t this mean abortion?
See “Technical Definitions and Commentary” prepared for the UN’s International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994.
“Fertility regulation is the process by which individuals and couples regulate their fertility. Methods that can be used for this purpose include, among others: delaying childbearing, using contraception, seeking treatment for infertility, interrupting unwanted pregnancies, and breast-feeding.” Also see– World Health Organisation–Definition and Indicators in Family Planning, Maternal and Child Health and Reproductive Health, used in the WHO Regional Office for Europe, revised March 1999.
This drive for abortion access seems unmistakably, at odds with the edicts determined at the ICPD in 1994; in which a policy of action [PoA] explicitly stated what constitutes “reproductive health”.
“In no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning…..”
“Governments should take appropriate steps to help women avoid abortion, which in no case should be promoted as a method of family planning……..”
“In circumstances where abortion is not against the law, such abortion should be safe…..”
“Prevention of unwanted pregnancies must always be given the highest priority and every attempt should be made to eliminate the need for abortion…..”.
The Hewlett Packard Foundation [which contributed substantially to the CRR- Centre for Reproductive Rights] presents another classic avoidance language expression. Concerning their contributions to international ‘reproductive health services’ they comment. “This Foundation is devoted to programs concerning the world’s population and is dedicated to making grants addressing serious environmental problems and placing a high value on sustaining and improving institutions that make a positive contribution to society.”
In regard to ‘population control’ Communications Director/s for the H&P Foundations Chris De Cardy and Eric Brown, have replied–“ We don’t see it as population control. We see it as helping to reduce the rate of population growth in the world.” Duhr?
On the issue of sterilization, what critics of population control call coercive, the controllers themselves prefer to identify as economic encouragement, persuasive and thus, voluntary and consensual.
9.1 Menstrual regulation [MR]
Perhaps one of the most devious of all expressions devised by ‘population controllers’, UN agencies and funding groups is – menstrual regulation– defined as the induction of menses when a women has noted a missed period. This terminology has been encouraged by the Concept Foundation (Bangkok) particularly in the South East Asian nations. While it is clearly an abortion procedure, it is not recorded as an abortion simply because there has not been any recorded confirmation of a pregnancy; fear of an unwanted pregnancy is however not excluded.
MR has become a favoured form of ‘fertility control’ in nations where abortion remains illegal- largely those with predominantly Muslin populations.
Menstrual regulation (MR) may involve either chemical [eg. RU 486] or more commonly, manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) to evacuate the uterus. In Vietnam MR is given up to 10 weeks from the date of the last menses, which corresponds to a foetal age of 8 weeks. In India however, only 14 days is approved. Vietnam is reported to record the highest abortion rate in Asia exceeding 1 in 10 women of reproductive age and estimated at about 2 million a year.
MVA kits designed under the direction of the Concept Foundation are manufactured by International Provision and Advocacy Services [IPAS] and distributed by Family health International [FHI] and approved by the WHO
9.1.1 Chemical Menstrual Regulation
In chemical MR the RU486 –mifepristone/prostaglandin (misoprostol) procedure– is generally involved. In some countries this procedure has been adapted as a once a month contraceptive technique.
Earlier this year 29 March 2006 the Australian newspaper carried an article describing the potential of mifepristone as an alternative to ‘the pill’. As it is oestrogen free the associated discomfort with menstruation might then be avoided. It has also been recommended as an emergency post-coital [morning after] contraceptive.4 The misoprostol (prostaglandin) on its own, is also being evaluated as a simplified, early termination of pregnancy by the Population Council.

10.0 Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT) 1
One of the more bizarre population control groups is one directed toward human extinction.
The aim is to phase out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed. Thereby allowing the Earth's biosphere to return to good health. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense. Their motto–'May we live long and die out.' Les Knight of VHEMT avows 2, 3– “ 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 success."
“The sooner we go extinct, the greater the biological diversity we'll leave behind to carry on”
This earth [Gaia] centred ‘world view’ sees human kind [Homo sapiens ] as just one of tens of millions of species in Earth's biosphere. To preserve what's left of Gaia, we must change our human-centred activities to Earth-centred activities.
VHEMT attributes earth’s problems as having resulted from human religious ambitions; no doubt excluding the earth-based pagans.

11.0 Population Control and the Earth Charter.
Maurice Strong, on 8 April 1997, when introducing the Draft of the Earth Charter to the UN. commented–
“There is a need to address the fundamental ethical imperatives of ‘sustainable development’ and to foster a healthy balance between the quality of life and quantity of environment…to be in balance with ‘Mother Earth.’
According to the Earth Charter–sustainable development–population control and global governance and, dare I say it, a new global religion, are all part of a ‘One World’ package.
It is intriguing to note that 20 years prior to the launch of the Earth Charter , which fortunately, has not yet received formal UN approval, a man identified as R.C. Christian contacted the Elberton Granite Finishing Co. to erect the Georgia Guide Stones. These stones represent a new [humanistic] ten commandments for ‘Mother Earth’. They embrace 4 principles:–
Reducing the world population
Establishing a world government
Promoting a new [world] spirituality
The 1st Command demands that a stable world population of just 500,000,000, in perpetual balance with nature, should be an initial goal.
11.1 Sustainability and Environmentalism.
Today’s global over-population concepts are now presented as a major [or at least potential] cause of environmental degradation. Why then do we think it strange that the same people who have long been advocates for population control are presently the same activists concerned with climate control (or human origins for global warming). Hence, the demand for environmental sustainability, efficient utilisation of renewable resources and condemnation for, the mishandling of non-renewable resources; in particular, fossil fuel.
The elite zealots of western cultural mentality fear that when the ‘uncultured’ millions in the third world start exploiting the world’s resources, after the same manner enjoyed in the [over] developed industrialised world, then we have every reason to be apprehensive and thus need to discourage their expanding populations.
In the Earth Charter document (housed in the parody ‘Ark of Hope’) "Sustainable Development" is defined 1 , wherein the following “values and objectives” are included
1. Belief that Earth is God (or Gaia hence Pantheism) and embracing at no.4. The adoption of an "emerging world community" (or one-world government); at no. 5. The creation of a common world culture; at no. 11. Worldwide contraception and "reproductive health" (a term often synonymous with abortion rights) and at no.12. Worldwide education for sustainability; including spiritual education (Pantheism)
‘Sustainable development’, in effect, becomes just another ‘euphemism’ for ‘population control’ under the direction of a “Global Government” and a New (age) world religion.

12.0 Global Population Predictions 1,2,3.
At the beginning of the 21st century this earth’s population was determined to be somewhat more than 6,000,000,000 (or 6 billion)-12 Oct 1999. Up until this time recognised population forecasters were giving estimates of between 9 and up to 12 billion people occupying the earth by the middle of this present century. These calculations had been predicated on the long established view that for each succeeding generation there had been a doubling of people on the earth. Clearly the growth rate over the 20th century from 1.6 to 6 billion seemed to provide a sound basis for the predictions.
The UN, over a period of time, have been in the habit of biennially reviewing the world’s population growth and in 1996 it was determined that the annual exponential growth rate from a peak of 2.2%,* was now clearly retarding downward.
*[corresponding roughly with the publication in 1968 of Paul Ehrlich’s ‘Population Bomb’ when about 90 million were added each year].
The idea that a staggering 12 billion people would be attempting to occupy the earth by 2050 was the principal raison d’etre for the population controllers.
After the UN population review in 1996 the NY Times Magazine carried an article by Ben Wattenberg 4 where he coined the expression ‘birth dearth’. In a book of the same title he recorded (in 1997) that the global population had been in decline for over 15 years and no more than 9 billion people would be on earth by 2050.
In the 2002 “Global Population Profile” the annual increase for global growth was given as 74 million. This annual rate of growth had now dropped to 1.2% yielding a maximum earth population of 7.5 million by mid-century. In fact a nominal ZPG would thus obtain by 2038.
Earth’s annual population increase at the beginning of the 21st century had slipped to 60 million. It was then reasoned that if a declining rate of 2.1 million less people continued, then at this rate a zero population growth would be attained by 2029 when there would be no more than 6.9 billion.
However, if the reducing annual rate should drop even more quickly, as is likely, then a maximum population for the earth would be no more than 6.64 billion by 2029.
Highlights reported from Global Population Profile: 2002, accessed at http://www.census.gov/ipc/www/publist.html. revealed.......................
n The slowdown in global population growth was linked primarily to declines in fertility. In 1990, the world's women, on average, were giving birth to 3.3 children over their lifetimes. By 2002, the average had dropped to 2.6 children -- slightly above the level needed to assure replacement of the population. These Census Bureau projections showed the level of fertility for the world as a whole descending below replacement level before 2050.
In 2001 it was noted that some 83 nations were recording TFR much less than replacement (2.1) European countries (~ 30) were in 2004 showing serious decline; averaging 1.5. Spain is presently exhibiting a crisis level of just 1.08. In 2005 the global average TFR was just under 2.6.
European population will soon shrink to less than 7% of the total world population. This kind of European ‘birth dearth’ has occurred before; historically in the late the eighteenth century when sustained fertility declined. Starting in France, it then spread to other European countries. This data certainly shows that couples, even without of access to modern contraception, were well able to regulate their family size.
Meanwhile, African countries are soon to correspond to ~25% of the global population. That is, if not depleted by disease; in particular HIV/AIDs which is having a devastating impact upon overall life expectancy.
Japan has been experiencing a TFR less than replacement for almost 50 years currently just 1.29; likewise Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. Japan in particular, has a rapidly aging population where those over 65 far exceed those under 15.
Japan’s attempted solution has been to offer a $5000 baby bonus. Similar ideas have been introduced here in Australia and in other European countries. Singapore in 1994 initiated tax rebates 5 for families with more than two children. Then more recently they have resorted to reality TV 6.7 to encourage parents to have more children. Not all that long ago parents were penalised if they had more than three.
Concern for declining population in 1994 led South Korean government 8 to impose restrictions on expenditure for birth control.
France also offers to pay cash 9 for more babies. Mothers may get €1,000 a month to have third child.
In Russia 10 to Pres. Putin has proposed paying women to have (more) children–“To remedy a critical population outlook.” Russia is presently facing a daily loss of some 2500. Moreover, this population decline is aggravated by an accompanying deterioration in life expectancy–59 for men 63 for women.
Clearly Russia is now paying a high price for their incredibly high rates of abortion. Official statistics for 2005 listed 1.6 million abortions relative to 1.5 live births
In Russia one leading Muslim cleric 11 has pleaded for legislative approval for polygamy to increase that countries drooping birth statistics.
In neighbouring Ukraine the ex-PM 12 is calling for more sex.
In Italy the Government 13 has even offered rewards to poorer women not to abort their children.
To date there is no evidence at all that the introduction of reward incentives has any positive encouragement to have larger families.
China too is rapidly moving toward a disproportionately high aged [60 +] population expected to exceed 25% of that countries population by 2020.
China birth rate of 2.9 before the 1979 one child policy [as a short-term measure to] has dropped to 1.94 in women over 35 and 1.73 in women under 35 -- below replacement level.14
Even more serious is the decline in the number of children under 15. Cultural preference for male heirs in China, India and Korea, is leading to male/female imbalance. China 15 now grieves for 15 -25 million lost girls. One BBC report in Sept. 2000 stated that already there were 60 million more men.16Official government figures, state that there are 100 girls for every 116 boys in China.
While in India for every 100 girls there are 110 boys. Then in Seoul–South Korea kindergartens lament a ratio of 6 to 4 boys to girls.
In Australia there is a mild preponderance of females to males as indicated in [page 5] the recent ABS census notes. In 2001 there were 350,000 more females to males under the age of 18.
Population controllers and the Liberal Ideological Environmentalists (LIE’s) might well claim the credit for this massive slowing in the rate of global population growth; yet at what cost.
The aging population, in the industrialised west 17, , is creating havoc with future welfare support because of the declining tax paying workforce. Moreover, this decreasing workforce is creating other economic difficulties. What happens to a consumer economy based on growth when facing a ‘birth dearth’? Decreasing levels in skilled trades and technologists is another issue again. In a recent report 18,19 by the Population Division of the UN Secretariat emphasis is given to the importance of “Replacement Migration”. In Japan a migrant intake of some 10 million is predicted. Japan however, has always prided itself in its homogeneous population.
If we were to learn from history, which we rarely do, we would note that declining populations in any country, invariably lead to failed creativity, reduced societal vitality and finally cultural collapse.
Mark Steyn 20 columnist to the New Criterion wrote recently –Much of what we call the Western World will not survive this century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most, European countries.
12.1 Abandoning Christianity
Columnist Don Feder 21 bravely asserts that it is Europe's abandonment of its Christian heritage that is the true root cause of its population problems.
"It's no coincidence that central to the new Europe ... is a refusal to acknowledge the continent's origins," says Feder, [who is Jewish]. "The proposed constitution for the European Union (a document of over 70,000 words) contains not a single reference to Christianity. Thus, more than a millennium of European history is effectively erased."
The Russian Orthodox Church concurs.22
12.2 What of the Future?
For somewhere near forty years an intensive campaign has been wrought to combat the global “overpopulation” problem. Present global demography now reveals the hoax of this scheme and exposes the truth. The consequences of the contraceptive invasion, abortion [both ‘safe’ and involuntary], sterilization and the bothersome ‘reproductive health’ projects causing the resultant shrinking populations, particularly in the developed world, are promoting–
¨ the rise in aging populations,
¨ collapsing pension systems,
¨ the diminishing young age group,
¨ a decreasing tax paying work force, and
¨ globally not less poverty but more.
The truth is we have failed to maintain natural family structure and normal population pyramid in order for society – and mankind itself – to survive. Fertility must not be regulated at merely replacement levels or below, otherwise even serious consequences will set in.

13.0 Population Growth and Food Supply 1-4
In spite of compelling evidence to the contrary the Mathusian concept of population growth outpacing food supply, continues to captivate the fear mongering [Liberal Ideological Environmentalists] LIE activists who still continue to blow the over-population trumpet. In addition, whatever happened to Paul Ehrlich’s (the modern Malthus) “Population Bomb”? 5 or he and his Wife, Anne’s  ‘Population Explosion’ 6 and its cancer uncontrolled multiplication of people
The predicted global famines, disease, civil and international conflicts, over food distribution, have not eventuated.
One would have thought that following the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation’s [UNFAO] World Food Summit Nov. 1995 that panic, over world population would have diminished–sadly no!
Population control programs that seek to pursue increasing access to abortion, sterilizing, contraception and appeals for ‘reproductive rights’, continue unabated.
Conclusions and recommendations reached at the [FAO] 1995, Rome Food Summit, noted a doubling of food supply since the 1960’s, yet this has had negligible impact upon population control projects.
Even the earlier 1993, World Bank forecasts 7 of continual food expansion effected no changes to its own measures or its support for, restraining world population growth.
The World Bank did report that increased grain production was often handicapped by limits to storage capacity and restricted distribution, due to reduced economic benefits and farmer profit margins.
In 1995, Sheldon Richmond of the Cato Institute, spoke before the US Congress inquiry – International Population Stabilization and Reproductive Health – he concluded that—
1. There was no global population problem.
2. Growth in human population was more than matched by increasing food production.
3. Countries experiencing poverty could not attribute this to over-population but to government ineptness or the tyranny of corruption or civil conflict.
Moving up to more recent date, the over-population ‘scape-goat’ refuses to go away. In Nov. 2003 Russell Hopfenberg 8 wrote an article–‘Human Carrying Capacity is Determined by Food Availability.’
Here Hopfenberg argued that parallel increases in food and population would ultimately lead to a doubling in global population. Then in company with ecologist David Pimentel* they proposed the radical idea of capping food production to halt population growth, convinced that this would reduce human fertility.
* Prof. Pimentel was widely quoted, during the mid 90’s, for recommending a global population of no more than 2 Billion.
Still there has not been any evidence produced to show any correlation between birth-rate and food supply; at least not in respect of directly associated, parallel increases. Rather, poverty and birth-rate seem strangely interrelated. Hopfenberg moreover, failed to recognise current declining rates of birth.
Even the most up to date UNFAO records of food supply, not only continue to show increasing food availability but an increasing differential rate of food supply relative to population.
Linking Land Quality, Agricultural Productivity, and Food Security, by Keith Wiebe,AER-823,
June 2003, available at: www.ers.usda.gov/publications/aer823
At the 1996 World Food Conference the FAO presented data revealing that a decreasing number of the world’s people have access to less than 2100 cal/person/day.
Then in its 2005 documents FAO statistics for 2002 records, even for sub-Saharan Africa 2200 cal/person /day and a world average of 2790 cal/person /day. Of course, the developed world remains overfed, with an average of availability of 3450 cal/person/day. Then contrary to Hopfenberg’s thesis, countries with this higher availability of food have the lowest fertility.
Sad to say, Africa still shows high rates of fertility and in some countries, food production is there dwindling and famine evident. However, this is attributable more often to governmental corruption, internal civil strife and at the margins, drought related to climate change.
Against seeming common sense, hunger and high fertility appear coupled. All too often linked to poor education and restrictions imposed upon women’s freedom. Education of the female population is by far the highest precursor to lower fertility. Male poverty is tied in with male dominance.
13.1 Famine and Overpopulation–Is there a link?
All too often ‘population control’ advocates point to the levels of poverty in various countries, particularly on the African continent. Then draw attention to the associated levels of sickness and famine, attributable to over-population. While noteworthy attention is given to efforts to control disease and provide varying degrees of immunisation and vaccination, by far the greater attention [and funding] is to the distribution of contraceptives, provision of access to ‘safe’ abortion, including menstrual regulation and to encourage and provide sterilization. Far less aid goes to creating infrastructure, housing, clean water, self-sufficient food production, schools roads hospitals etc..
Hunger, famine and resource depletion are still erroneously assumed to be due to over-population. Hence, the relentless mantra of ZPG and emphasis on ‘reproductive health’, still penalises women to the detriment of other family and child care health problems. Condoms and chemicals for contraception and abortion are readily available while medicines for even the most common of diseases are, all too often, in short supply.
Modern history is rife with examples of serious famine but rarely has this ever been cause solely by overpopulation. The Soviet famine of 1934 was politically instituted by the Stalinist regime to destroy Ukrainian resistance. Even Britain, fearful of Japanese invasion through Burma in 1943 systematically removed grain distribution which contributed to the Bengal famine. Famine throughout China followed Mao’s great leap forward in 1948. Ethiopian starvation during the 80’s was inflicted by the harsh policies of the then communist government. Conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa especially in the Sudan and Congo have been devastating on human populations. North Korea, even today, suffers famine [on <500 calories /person /day] because of the ambitions of a despotic government. Well might we conclude that civil wars and corrupt repressive governments cause far more poverty and consequent famine than simple human population growth.
In the island nation of Sri Lanka the conflict with Tamil tigers in the north caused the government to put a ban on fertilizer because the Tamil Tigers were converting it into bombs. As a consequence, this led to poor harvest and eventual starvation in the Vanni region.
Famine occurs because–
"People have inadequate physical and/or economic access to food as a result of the poverty caused by political instability, economic inefficiency and social inequity, not simply because there are too many people.”
What then of resources and wealth distribution?
Significantly, the greatest discrepancies can be attributed to the economies of centrally planned [authoritarian] nation states compared with the market based capitalist democracies. But even here human selfishness still thrives.
We might for instance, look to countries with similar cultural inheritance such a China and the Island State Taiwan or North and South Korea; the former East and West Germany and of course, the former USSR and the capitalist West. Each comparison presents a stark reminder of the effects of differential wealth and political power distribution.
13.3 Population density.9
Going further we might look to differences in population density. Here further confirmation is presented that in spite of higher population density pressures the market driven enterprise economies, in general, flourish while centrally planned nations stagnate and demand foreign aid.
South Korea with 3.5 times the population density than China produces, per capita, 16 times the manufacturing output.10
In Africa the poverty stricken people of Niger could well be used as propaganda for the cause of ‘population control’. Yet even here the problems are not too many people. Niger’s population density is just 9 per square km. Compare this with the USA at 28; Japan at 340; the Netherlands 484 and Hong Kong 6,621. One would need to be very simple indeed to equate population density as a factor or cause of poverty and starvation.
The global population drift to cities is also impacting world population growth but not as might be predicted by the population controllers. In rural communities children are seen as an asset but in cities a liability. Thus, cities now function as population sinks even though population density increases. One prime correlation is that, in general, city women are becoming better educated.
Who then, in the rush to control the world population, wants to give attention to evidence of this kind?
Well might we conclude that global people problems result not from excess people but excessive governments!

World Bank Development Report 1997
14.0 Muslim Birth – rate:
Increased Muslim birth-rate and migration from, Islamic nations presents a major issue for the Western industrialised world 1; particularly for Europe. On average, Muslim families are expanding with a TFR of the order 3.5. This, coupled with the European ‘birth-dearth’# is resulting in ever expanding Islamic community growth; currently of the order 20 million.
# Where, on average, European woman each have 1.5 children, Muslim women often give birth to 6.
Taken together with increased Muslim migration it is predicted that Europe will reach an Islamic population in excess of 40 million by 2025.
Chuck Colson has commented that, what the former Moores and Ottoman empires failed to carry out, changing demographics will achieve; a Muslim Europe. This has similarly been documented by Bat Yeor in her book ‘Eurabia’. Similar comments have been repeated by Nial Ferguson in the Hoover Digest 3; 2004, Arnold Beichman, a Hoover Institution research fellow and Washington Times columnist, Mark Steyn & numerous others.
Should Turkey be admitted into the European Union a further 50 million Muslim adherents would be added.
The Netherlands presents a prime example of this population drift for, by 2020 it is estimated that half of the children under 18 will be of Islamic decent.
Colonel Gadafi of Libya recently on Al Jazerra TV [10 April 2006] confidently laid claim to the following–“with 50 million Muslims in Europe there are signs that Allah will grant victory in Europe…within a few decades..”
Other headlines are now common such as–
¨ “The pill is mightier than the sword.” 2
¨ “The Islamic Population Bomb.”
¨ “The power of Islam is in its birth-rate.”3
¨ “Babies win wars.” 4
¨ “Conquered by the Muslim baby boom.”
The high fertility exhibited throughout the Arab nations of the Middle East 5 is further cause for concern – TFR for Yemen 7.2; Palestine 5.9; Saudi Arabia 5.7 meanwhile, at the low end, Lebanon 2.4; Iran 2.4 and Tunisia 2.1. These latter 3 have all but reverted to replacement levels and ZPG.
The same trend is evident throughout the Indian sub-continent Muslim women are out birthing the Hindu (TFR 4.4 to 3) These kind of divergences have been attributed to higher general disapproval of family planning amongst many Muslim communities.
The Malaysian Government (a Muslim nation) abandoned population control in 1984.Yet this country has never seen any marked over-population poverty; for, under free market reforms they have exhibited remarkable economic advances.
A few commentators have bravely asserted that the western attitude toward contraceptive, recreational sex; free from responsibility for (many) children has been (rightly) condemned by Islamic spiritual leaders. Moreover, Islamic communities have been consistently suspicious of the West’s approaches to health and reproductive education.
In Nigeria for instance 6 , these fears and active resistance seem to have been justifiably confirmed. Historically as part of the 1991/92 UNFPA birth-control promotion, ‘fake’ documents were written by ‘a supposed Islamic theologian’7 defining family planning ideas in stark contrast to traditional Islamic views.
Furthermore, in 2004 UNICEF polio vaccine was found to have been contaminated with sterilizing agents. Documented evidence of the presence of toxic drugs affecting human reproduction certainly is strong justification for Islamic resistance to UN Family health programs.
Could it be that Islamic resistance and hesitancy in implementing birth-control, is the reason why sub-Saharan Africa has not exhibited any dramatic population decline?
Muslim commentary 9 on population control reads–
“We can see that the ‘family planning’ campaign is being run on baseless claims. The real issue is "How to increase the share of the world’s population living under Western Values?" There are only two ways. Either increase the ‘Western’ population, or decrease that of the rest of the world. Unfortunately, the first option does not exist. The ‘Me generation’ in the West today is unwilling to give the sacrifices needed for bearing and bringing up children. Hence, the push is to decrease the numbers of the ‘other’ populations. The real goal of ‘family planning’ is to make sure that the world’s political geography stays in favour of current powers.”
Notwithstanding, the reproductive controllers do not hesitate or take stock. David Reardon 10 describes other examples of female human guinea-pigs detained in the hands of population controllers. Commenting upon a BBC documentary 11, describing a new pregnancy vaccine in Mexico and the Philippines, it was confirmed that a tetanus vaccine had, unknown to the recipients, been laced with the hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) to promote rejection of pregnancy. This vaccine was first trialled in Australia in 1986 by Adelaide Professor Warren Jones.12
Curious Filipino young women could not grasp why they had been selected for inoculation against tetanus when the disease was more prevalent amongst young men.
It seems that this program was the outcome of a 20 year long WHO project 13 to develop an anti-fertility vaccine tied to a tetanus toxoid as a carrier. This same exercise has been identified in Mexico and Nicaragua also.
Anti-fertility "vaccines" are a clear example of the impact "population control" has had on contraceptive research.
It is now recognised that force of arms may not be the strategy for any Islamic invasion of Europe; the power of Islam is in its birth-rate. It is three times higher than for non-Muslim Europeans yet seemingly, is now beginning to decline as their affluence grows. UN projections suggest that the Arab world birth-rates will eventually converge with those of the US at ~ 2.1 ZPG stability.
In Iran such convergence is already beginning to occur. Observations of this kind have convinced Spangler of the Asian Times [see The Demographics of Radical Islam] that an increasing pool of unemployed [disenchanted] Islamic young men throughout Europe may well rise up in anger over the next 20 or so years. The US Council on Foreign Relations seems to recognise the same scenario.14
Beside expressing a strong leaning for the introduction of disciplined, Sharia Law, assertive Muslim communities might well rise up to exhibit riotous unrest, as exemplified recently by the rebellion demonstrated as a reaction to the Danish cartoons, deemed, by the Islamic people, as offensive to their ‘Prophet’ -Mohammed – and their religious culture.
A dominant question that must be addressed is– “Can any European Society, increasing in its Muslim (demographic) character, resist becoming Islamic in its political flavour? In addition, it should be noted that any political resistance, to Islamic migration, in order to slow the internal ‘birth-rate invasion’, particularly if the migrants seek registration as refugees or asylum seekers, will be condemned as discriminatory, racist and a denial of human rights.
Who ever would have reasoned, as Bremen University Professor Heinsohn, proposes that ‘Babies Win Wars.?”

15.0 United Religions Initiative (URI) & Population Control
As an outgrowth of the new ‘Global Ethic’ proposed by radical theologian Hans Kung comes the support of the URI with the complementary– “Declaration of Human Responsibilities.”
Kung’s –“Declaration Toward a Global Ethic”– was confirmed by almost all delegates meeting in 1993 as a Parliament of World Religions. This ethic has been proposed as foundational to policies of multiculturalism as followed here in Australia under the direction of the Australian Multicultural Foundation [AMF]. At the core of the ‘Global Ethic’ is the foundational ‘Golden Rule’ but in reverse order… “What you wish done to yourself, do to others!”
Bishop William Swing (1995) founder of the URI sees Kung’s ‘Global Ethic’ as the basis for a syncretism of all the world’s religions and for the formation of a New [One] World Religion, equivalent to and the spiritual partner of, the United Nations-as described by the first President of URI- Rev. Charles Gibbs.
URI leaders view ‘global over-population’ as a grave threat; a problem likened, according to Bishop Swing, the converse of the Noahic flood. He comments- ‘ Now the world is drowning in people.’ …..Continuing Bishop Swing (agreeing with Muller 1) asks ---‘Will the population problems of this earth ever be solved without the best wisdom, strength an actions of religions working together?’
Barbara Marx Hubbard 2 and URI activist comments that – ‘the vast effort of humanity to be fruitful and multiply will have to be curtailed in our generation…. Our Mother (earth) namely Gaia, will not support us if we continue to grow in numbers.
Robert Muller author –World Core Curriculum-[inspired by Alice Bailey's spirit guide "the Tibetan Master”, Djwhal Khul] and ‘The New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality’ – is another keen devotee of URI has even suggested the introduction of a UN Marriage certificate for the new millennium (21st century), with an agreed commitment to have no more than two children.
Radical Episcopalian clerics and other proponents of URI like Barbara Marx Hubbard, Robert Muller, Maurice Strong et al are merely following an agenda mapped out over 50 years ago by theosophist founder Alice bailey who even in the 40’s discussed the perils of overpopulation and recommended eugenic and birth control solutions.
In addressing the ‘population issue’ the URI President and Vice Pres. have signed on to a new document drafted by SEICUS [Sexual Information & Education Council of the US] called the –‘Religious Declaration on Sexual Morality, Justice and Healing.’ This document opposes ‘un-sustainable population growth’ and offers radical support for homosexual-union, legalised abortion, artificial contraception and (various) reproductive health practices.
Complementing the ‘Global Ethic’ is of course, the Mikhail Gorbachev/Maurice Strong/Steven Rockefeller ‘Earth Charter’ 3(for Global Governance) see also the Georgia Stones’ commandments. This ‘Earth Charter’ expresses the philosophy that –‘the protection of the biosphere, as the common interest of all humanity, must not be subservient to the rules of state sovereignty, the demands of the free market or to individual rights.
Need we say more?
At the Gorbachev/Strong sponsored Millennium Summit –San Francisco –2000 part of the Charter there presented emphasised ‘respect for the dignity and worth of the human person’, directing further attention to ‘respect for nature’ and the precepts of ‘sustainable development.’
In appreciating these Orwellian-‘Weasel Words’ we recognise that ‘sustainable development’ embraces limits to economic activity and restrictions on population growth–in particular, inhibiting family size;– by way of abortion including menstrual regulation, contraception and sterilization. Thus, there remains a persistent assault in selected (developing) countries to reduce the world population to a ‘manageable number’.
15.1 Evangelical Environmental Network
The URI tentacles of influence have now been extended to the creation of the Evangelical Environmental Network to mobilize evangelical Christians on the problem of global warming climate change and sustainable development.
EEN is headed by Rev. Jim Ball and their recent declaration in this ‘populist arena’ –Climate Change: An Evangelical Call to Action– was signed by 86 American Evangelical leaders and funded mainly by the Hewlett and Rockefeller Foundations; The same foundations which funded the U.N. Millennium Peace Summit, organized by the United Religions Initiative (URI) and other “religious” groups.
This strange partnership raises the sombre question – “How come these Evangelical representatives of the Christian community are now embracing the population controlling, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, global government and one world religion elite?”
In some circles this has been referred to an “Unholy Alliance” 4 with Pro-gay, Pro-abortion, Globalists, to Fight Global Warming.
Global warming is now assumed to be one main reason for the need to control world population; but, only if global warming is caused by people. Thus, one way to control it, is through having fewer people. However, if the global population declines does that mean we will avoid global worming? And if global warming is not due to too many people what reason have we to control population?
Also in the US, the National Council of Churches of Christ (NCC), in their booklet ‘Eradicating Global Poverty.” 5 is saying that for the first time in human history we have the ability to eradicate poverty. Nevertheless, the proposals advocated are aligned through and with, the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Yes this is the URI at work!
Benny Hinn has commented 6:–
“I believe what we have here is a subtle new age influence infiltrating evangelism; turning our concern to care for the environment as we do people. Of course we are not to abuse the creation but to have this as part of the Gospel mandate is absurd.”
A URI principle states “We act from sound ecological practices to protect and preserve the Earth for both present and future generations. URI promotes interfaith cooperation.”
Roll on URI–Global Religion–Global Government and the New World Order.
Biblical Christianity remains a threat and thus, consistently finds itself under siege from powerful political and [new age] religious bureaucracies.

Benny Hinn Comments– http://www.inplainsite.org/html/ywam_and_benny_hinn.html
Stefan Kühl [The Nazi Connection Eugenics, American Racism, and German National Socialism 2002] uncovers the ties between the American eugenics movement and the Nazi program of racial hygiene, showing that many American scientists actively supported Hitler's policies. After introducing us to the recently resurgent problem of scientific racism, Kühl carefully recounts the history of the eugenics movement, both in the United States and internationally, demonstrating how widely the idea of sterilization as a genetic control had become accepted by the early twentieth century.
