The New York Times Throws in the Towel on “Overpopulation”



My guess is that you, gentle reader, will be as astonished as we were by the top-of-the-website New York Times article discrediting the population alarmism of the past fifty years. In “The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion” the newspaper has finally (several decades too late) thrown population control on the ash heap of discredited ideas. The article included a video interview with Paul Ehrlich, the author of The Population Bomb. He was the butterfly scientist …

A War on Maternity Waged in the Name of Mother Earth



I often come across persons who attempt to justify forced abortion, sterilization, and contraception because “We (that is, human beings) are destroying the planet”. They view people as pollution, and argue that it is necessary to violate reproductive rights to protect the planet from the beings who are despoiling it. Yet that logic is intrinsically flawed. Let us put it this way. Which of these do not belong: nitrous oxide, methane, Homo sapiens, or carbon …

Watchdog Group Condemns Swiss Population Control Initiative



The Population Research Institute condemns a proposed population control initiative in Switzerland which is being put to a vote on November 30, and if enacted, would restrict immigration into Switzerland and increase Swiss spending on population control abroad. The proposed initiative would cap the number of immigrants allowed into Switzerland at 0.2% annually (or 1 in 500 people) and mandate that a minimum of 10% of its foreign aid funds be spent on birth control …

A Once and Future Tragedy: India’s sterilization campaign 39 years later



39 years ago today, Indira Gandhi, then Prime Minister of India, received the power to rule by decree from the Indian president. She immediately declared a state of emergency, suspending numerous civil liberties. This freed her government to forcibly sterilize millions of Indian men and women in the 21 months that followed. Public officials mobilized en masse to meet statewide sterilization targets. The sterilizations that followed were carried out under so-called “compul-suasion,” (a combination of …

One Small Snip for Man, One Giant Snip for Mankind



For most of the world, today is Friday, a happy day that leads into the weekend. For Paul Ehrlich and Dr. Doug Stein, however, today is World Vasectomy Day! Their video on the website WorldVasectomyDay.org does not pretend that vasectomies are for men’s health or for healthy relationships. Instead, with cheery colors, the video highlights “population” as the problem behind “global warming, war, and poverty,” and prescribes vasectomies as the cure. “It all comes down …

Contraception as a “Solution” to Abortion: No way!



A good friend—at least I think we're still friends—recently told me that he had decided that the "solution" to abortion was more contraception.  Of course, this solution is not original with him. It has been around for decades and is constantly invoked by the Barack Obamas, the Hilary Clintons, and the Nancy Pelosis of the world.  But as he is a professing Christian (and should know better) I took the time to write him the …
