The United Nations and its Non-Government Organisation allies, such as London based International Planned Parenthood Federation and Washington's Population Action International, have linked population and fertility control to ‘green’ issues such as sustainable economic development under the guise of ‘social development’.

The argument they put forward is that as the world's human population rose from 3 billion in 1950, to 6 billion in 2000 and growing at 80 million a year will reach 9 billion by 2050. They would seek to reduce it by about half. The following quotations are a chilling endorsement of their position:

Claire Chambers, The SIECUS Circle: A Humanist Revolution “Since its inception, the U.N. has advanced a world-wide programme of population control, scientific human breeding, and Darwinism”.

Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier, November 1991, “The United Nation's goal is to reduce population selectively by encouraging abortion, forced sterilization and control of human reproduction, and regards two-thirds of the human population as excess baggage, with 350,000 people to be eliminated per day.

INITIATIVE FOR ECO-92 EARTH CHARTER: “The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary.”

Barbara Marx Hubbard, former Democratic vice-presidential candidate and advisor to the U.S. Department of Defence in her self published The Book of Co-Creation 1980, “We are in charge of God's selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death.”

The Pivot of Civilization quoted in Margaret Sanger (the founder of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the world.) “Those least fit to carry on the race are increasing most rapidly ... funds that should be used to raise the standard of our civilization are diverted to maintenance of those who should never have been born”.

Robert McNamara in New Solidarity, March 30th 1981, “There are many ways to make the death rate increase.”

In fact, the contrary idea to controlling population as a way of “saving the environment” comes from some surprising quarters. Jennie Bristow, editor of Abortion Review (which is about as far away from the Pro-Life movement as you can possibly get) writes, “If it is accepted in principle that it is right for women to make reproductive decisions based on social ends, rather than their personal choices and circumstances, then it becomes easy for state authorities to introduce policies that validate one choice over another. This poses a clear threat to women's autonomy”.

The website Population Control is Evil, makes the following points: “There is plenty of arable land in the world. The problem is not too many people but rather oppressive governments. The elite are suppressing food and water to the poor around the world. The World Bank has bankrupt nations, cutting off their resources.

If you do the math, everyone in the world could fit within the State of Texas, having a space of land 30ft by 30 ft. There's plenty of land. The problem is greed, lust for power and oppression”.

Pranay Gupte from New Delhi commenting in August 2004 on the 10th anniversary meeting in London of the UN's population conference in Cairo in 1994 says, “Between UN expenditures and those of individual governments and NGOs, some (US)$11 billion is spent each year on population-related matters. That is more than a fourth of what all 135 countries of the Third World receive annually in foreign aid.

It is culturally insulting, and historically erroneous, to say that poor people everywhere will keep producing children because of unrestrained libidos. Anthropology suggests that people will always respond positively to economic and educational opportunities and adjust family size accordingly. Few parents wish to have children whom they cannot feed”.

In his article, The Population Control Agenda, the California based Orthopaedic Surgeon, Writer and Broadcaster Stanley K. Monteith, M.D. Writes, “I shall have to admit that I studied the politics of AIDS (HIV disease) for over a decade before I finally came to a horrifying conclusion. The real motivation behind efforts to block utilisation of standard public health measures to control further spread of the HIV epidemic was population control”.

He then goes on to state that, “In the early 1960s a group of environmentalists and population control adherents set out to block the use of DDT for mosquito and malaria control after it had been found that the insecticide was extremely effective in saving human life”.

The Club of Rome (described as an international elitist organisation) published a book called The First Global Revolution in which the authors noted that, “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention .... the real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”

The President of that organisation, Alexander King, in talking about DDT, said, “My own doubts came when DDT was introduced. In Guyana, within two years, it had almost eliminated malaria. So my chief quarrel with DDT, in hindsight, is that it has greatly added to the population problem”.

Dr Monteith offers another example of a population control programme which is being promoted in the United States today. He says, “Many physicians have expressed their concern about the dramatic increase in breast carcinoma seen in women in recent years. Despite the fact that 18 scientific studies have clearly demonstrated the direct causal relationship between first-trimester abortion and breast cancer, all efforts to disseminate that information here in the US have been consistently blocked by those who favour abortion and population control”.

He goes on to say in regard to US-funded medical aid to the rest of the world that, “Far more than one billion human lives have been terminated as a result of the world-wide abortion programme financed by the United States”.

Under the Bush presidency, federal funds were withheld from supporting both the International Planned Parenthood Federation and the United Nations Fund for Population because of President Bush's opposition to abortion. The first legislation signed by President Obama however, was to re-instate federal support for these programmes. Who else then is notably involved in funding anti-population programmes? Well, according to Steven W. Mosher in his article, The Billionaire Bomb, three of America's finest entrepreneurs.

Ted Turner (worth $9 billion) the media mogul has given the United Nations $1 billion for population control. Warren Buffet (worth $63 billion) through his charitable foundation has funded clinical trials on the abortion inducing drug RU-486, and the female sterilization drug Quinacrine Hydrochloride.

Then there is Bill Gates (worth $63 billion) whose charity gave a grant to a German foundation of $545,000 to “bring about a decline in world population growth.” There were additional sums paid to fund what' is described as a coercive sterilization campaign for women in the Dominican Republic, and for what is described as a ‘forced’ contraceptive, sterilization and abortion programme in Tanzania.

This whole population explosion business can be traced back to the theory of the economist Thomas Malthus (who died in 1834) having predicted that human numbers would eventually outrun the food supply. Now thoroughly discredited as two centuries and 5 billion people later, humans are living longer and are healthier than ever before.

Our world population is set to peak in 2050 at 9 billion and then begin to decline. In other words our long term problem is not going to be too many children but too few. Meantime, secretive powers, organisations and governments continue to look for every opportunity to reduce the number of souls on this planet for their own ends and those who will suffer the most are, as always, the poorest and weakest of our human family unless we take action.

A quote from St Paul may be appropriate, when he told the Church in Ephesus, “We struggle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the forces of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
