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 …

The UN Continues to Push a Radical Abortion Agenda



The new UN report on women makes for grim reading, if you can decipher it. The reason that you may have trouble doing so is that the report, called the World Survey on the Role of Women in Development 2014: Gender Equality and Sustainable Development, is written in a kind of code. Words and expressions are used that sound reasonable—what could be wrong with “gender equality,” for example?—but which, in the femspeak used by the …

The Malaysia conference highlights how to market a drug for one thing and use it for another, how euphemisms work and how it is up to government to create demand for contraception.

The Gates’ Family Planning Initiative: What About the Women Who Don’t Want It?

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 …
