Mosher: China May End Two-Child Policy, But What Comes Next May Be Just as Bad



This article originally appeared on Breitbart It wasn’t so long ago that Chinese officials were bragging about the success of their population control program. When the Chinese Minister of Health, Gao Qiang, visited the U.S. in 2011, he proudly told a horrified group of U.S. Congressmen: “We have eliminated 400 million people from the population. We have eliminated more people than the entire population of the United States.” Now comes word that the Party is poised to …

Philippines: No to Population Control, Yes to Authentic Development—Part I



Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to “champion contraception…to reduce poverty by 25 percent in six years.” “I only want three children for every family,” Duterte stated publicly, “I’m a Christian, but I’m a realist so we have to do something with our overpopulation.” Having promoted, as former mayor of Davao, sexual “education,” free contraception and free access to tubal ligation, Duterte now says that “a more aggressive approach” is necessary because “our resources cannot …

Out of Africa Comes a Cry for Help Against the Culture of Death



Arriving in the Philippines last January, Pope Francis warned his millions of listeners to resist “ideological colonization.” This destructive assault on families, the Pope continued, included efforts to “redefine the very institution of marriage, by relativism, by the culture of the ephemeral, by a lack of openness to life.” Africans, above all, know what he is talking about. After all, their continent has been the playground of Western imperialists for the past two centuries. Their …

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 …

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. USAID TIED TO “RESULTS” The OECD report also elucidates how USAID encouraged India’s sterilization quota system to develop …

USAID Funding of Sterilization Camps in India



Women's wombs are inflated with bicycle pumps. Some are paid as little as 600 rupees – about $10 –  to be sterilized. Some see – and feel – doctors pull shreds of their organs from their abdomens during procedures. Doctors reuse gloves and needles for dozens of surgeries.  Antibiotics or painkillers, if used, may be tainted with rat poison. These are just a few of the details about India's “family planning” programs that have emerged …

Immigrants Flood Into Europe



“It doesn’t matter if we Spaniards do not have enough children, as long as foreign migrants come to Spain and have kids here,” the head of a major conservative Spanish think tank said to me a couple of years ago. I had suggested to him that the center-right Partido Popular—now the governing party in Spain—promote pro-natal policies. But can immigration really make up for Spain’s growing birth deficit? Since 2011, when we had our conversation, …

Open response to: “Overpopulation: Should America have a one-child policy?



Last Tuesday, the Washington Times published an article by Joseph Cotto entitled, “Overpopulation: Should America have a one-child policy?” Despite the provocative title, the article does not present a stimulating thought-experiment, but rather a series of half-truths and inconsistencies with dangerous implications. Because such half-truths have been at the ideological root of every forced abortion this century, we at Population Research Institute drew up a list of the claims made in the article—and countered them …
