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 …

Never Forget June 25th: Institute remembers the 39th anniversary of 11 million sterilizations



WASHINGTON DC: Population Research Institute remembers when, thirty-nine years ago, the population controllers got their way in India.

The campaign began on June 25th, 1975, when the Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi, suspended elections and civil liberties.

US Congress Condemns Two-Child Policy in Burma



WASHINGTON DC: Population Research Institute commends the U.S. Congress for condemning the two-child policy inflicted upon the Rohingya in Burma.

Europe as We Know It is Dying



It’s happened before. Writing a century and a half before the birth of Christ, the Greek historian Polybius observed “nowadays all over Greece such a diminution in natality and in general manner such depopulation that the towns are deserted and the fields lie fallow. Although this country has not been ravaged by wars or epidemics, the cause of the harm is evident: by avarice or cowardice the people, if they marry, will not bring up …

After Passage of Pro-Abortion Constitution, Kenyan Bishops Urge Immediate Amendment



Thanks to the Obama administration, American taxpayers footed the bill for a lobbying campaign in Kenya on behalf of that country’s new constitution, which virtually allows abortion on demand. Vol. 12/No. 23 Kenya has a new constitution. Approved by an overwhelming majority of Kenyans in a 4 August 2010 referendum, the document’s 250 or so pages represent, in some ways, a new beginning for the Kenyan people. Unfortunately, it also means a premature end for …

Part 4: Out of Africa: The Case of Nigeria



Note: The following is excerpted from Steven Mosher’s book, Population Control—Real Costs, Illusory Benefits. The combination of bribes, threats, and blandishments used to induce governments in the developing world to address their “population problem,” or at least to allow foreign-funded groups to operate freely within their borders for the same purpose, defies simple description or generalization. In some cases the population control proposals are relatively straightforward, as in 2000 when the UNFPA offered the government …
