China Begins “Mobilizing the Masses” to Reproduce



https://www.pop.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/WB_China-2-child-mandate-092118.mp3 This article originally appeared on LifeSiteNews When the Chinese Communist Party implemented a “comprehensive two-child policy” in early 2016, outside observers assumed that it would be voluntary.  And why should they not? To all appearances, this was a dramatic relaxation—a doubling, no less–of the restrictive one-child policy. But appearances can be deceiving, especially where China is concerned. Instead of enjoying a new dawn of reproductive freedom, Chinese couples are actually being herded into something …

No Stephen Hawking, Population Growth Is Not Going to Turn Earth into a “Ball of Fire”



https://www.pop.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/HVP-WB-Hawking-112917.mp3 It’s a curious thing. At times, the most brilliant scientists and mathematicians throughout history have held some of the most preposterous beliefs. For instance, Rene Descartes, inventor of modern analytic geometry and the Cartesian plane, believed the pineal gland was the seat of the human soul. Sir Isaac Newton, the father of classical mechanics, the laws of motion, and co-discoverer of calculus, believed that one could predict the future through hidden secrets written into …

A New Dawn of Reproductive Freedom in China?



Washington, D.C.—Under China’s new two-child policy, forced and coercive abortions and sterilizations will continue, according to a panel of experts on China’s one-child policy who testified in a hearing before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) on Capitol Hill last Thursday. Experts believe abuses will continue. Due to 35 years of stringent population control, China’s rapid aging and shrinking labor force could lead Chinese officials to mandate women to increase childbearing. “The same Party officials …

The World’s Vanishing Children



  THE WORLD’S VANISHING CHILDREN Throughout the world birth rates and total fertility rates are plunging faster and further than ever recorded in human history. Despite all the apocalyptic doomsday predictions of overpopulation propagandists, the fact is that population growth rates in many countries are already below replacement level and the world’s growth rate is rapidly approaching that figure. If current trends continue, the world’s population will peak by the middle of the century and …

Germany to shrink by 10 million people by 2050



In 2003, I was in middle school. I had just started to envision a future for myself—one that involved traveling. In high school I began to realize my dream: I went abroad and spent several days in Germany. I learned firsthand that Germany was an energetic country with a rich (if tumultuous) history. But I didn’t know back then that Germany was dying. No one told me that the Germany I visited in 2008 had …

South Korea “Going Extinct”?



From South Korea comes a startling prediction that, if current population trends continue, the country will “go extinct” in 2750. The study, based on a computer simulation conducted by that country’s National Assembly Research Service (NARS), also identifies the culprit: not a high death rate or emigration rate, but one of the lowest fertility rates in the world. Of course, a world without South Koreans lies centuries in the future, and a lot can change …
