USAID Needs to Warn Women of the Dangers of Depo-Provera

  Despite mounting evidence of serious side effects associated with the use of injectable contraceptives, international aid programs continue to indiscriminately distribute Depo-Provera under various brand names worldwide. Indeed, a coalition of family planning partners including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health), and others are seeking to inject even more vulnerable women in developing countries with risky injectable contraceptives. Like …

Peruvian Victims Still Wait For Justice

Twenty-five years after hundreds of thousands of women were forcibly or coercively sterilized in Peru, these victims are still waiting for justice. A recent decree issued by the Peruvian Justice Ministry may help these women receive reparation for the crimes committed against them. The politics of abortion is complicating this process, however. Many pro-aborts in Peru who once supported the sterilization campaign are now perversely attempting the use the issue to leverage support for legalizing …

USAID Funding of Sterilization Camps in India

Earlier this week, we released a report outlining some of the horrors of India’s sterilization camps. We called the world’s attention to the US Agency for International Development’s complicity in coercive sterilization camps in India. Among the evidence was a report published by the OECD describing a multi-million dollar program by USAID to reduce fertility in India.

WASHINGTON DC: The Kenyan government is poised to embark upon a coercive population control program targeting women, the Population Research Institute (PRI) revealed this week.

Population Fund and U.S. Agency for International Development, has devised plans to radically reduce the number of children that Kenyan women desire. The plans are revealed in two white papers published by …

Controlling Women’s Desires in Kenya

The Kenyan government recently outlined a new brand of coercive population control. Unlike China’s policy which uses coercion to control the number of births, Kenya is trying to control population earlier in the reproductive process by changing women’s desires to have children. In the early 1980’s, the average woman in Kenya had 8 children. In the last 30 years, fertility rates fell by 44% to 4.5 children, but this fall has not been enough for …

Refugees Subject to Population Control

The Bangladesh parliament recommended imposing a population control program on tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar last month. Ironically, the Rohingya refugees fled from an oppressive regime in Myanmar which included a two-child policy. No one wants them to have children! Bangladesh has hosted refugees from Myanmar’s ongoing ethnic cleansing of non-Burmese for 20 years, and is apparently growing weary of the task. On September 18, the standing committee on the Ministry of …

Who’s Behind India’s Barbaric Mega Sterilization Camps?

Raw video footage shows unconscious women in saris being unloaded from a filthy plastic stretcher and lined up like butchers’ carcasses on the ground to recover from surgeries at a “mass sterilization camp” in India. The Indian television network, NDTV, aired the film in February, reporting that 103 women were sterilized by two doctors in a single day at the Manikchak Rural Health Center in the Malda district of West Bengal, before being dumped in …

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

Thanks to Melinda Gates, who recently declared the “global expansion of family planning her life’s work,” the women of the developing world are going to be showered with abortifacient contraceptives. These powerful, steroidal drugs will be injected and ingested by tens of millions over the next few years, reports PRI’s undercover correspondent at the London Summit on Family Planning, doing incalculable damage to their health.
