State Department Human Rights Report Condemns Forced Abortions in China



In the mid-eighties I met with Elliot Abrams, who was then serving as Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights, to call his attention to the victims of China’s one-child policy. I told him that massive numbers of forced abortions and forced sterilizations had occurred in China over the past few years as the Communist Party sought to control childbearing under a state plan. Abrams included my evidence in his next annual State Department Report …

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 …

New PRI Study Shows Depo-Provera Increases Risk of HIV Infection



A new peer-reviewed study,1 conducted in collaboration with the Population Research Institute (PRI), shows that women who use Depo-Provera are significantly more likely to acquire HIV. Due to funding from organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and agencies like the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Depo-Provera is the most widely used form of birth control by women in Sub-Saharan Africa where HIV prevalence remains high. The study found that Depo-Provera and other DMPA …

Abortion Activists Attempt to Use Zika Virus Outbreak to Legalize Abortion



The rapid spread of the Zika virus in the Western Hemisphere has many expectant mothers in hard-hit countries deeply concerned. Abortion activists have seized upon this public health crisis to argue that all unborn children who may have been exposed to the virus should be aborted. Very rarely hazardous to children or adults, Zika temporarily causes itchy rashes, joint pain and conjunctivitis. In rare cases, it can cause a bout of Guillain-Barré syndrome. But recently …

Catholic Health Commission in Kenya: Vaccine Contamination Demands Action from the Kenyan Ministry of Health



On February 13th, the Kenyan Conference of Catholic Bishops stated that the controversy over whether a tetanus vaccine had been laced with a sterilizing agent was an issue of national security and demanded that the Kenyan Ministry of Health cooperate in a continuing investigation to analyze the vaccine vials. Last year, a nationwide vaccination campaign used a tetanus vaccine that was found to be laced with a sterilizing agent known as Beta HCG. The vaccination …

Kenyan Bishops not Satisfied with Government Response to Vaccine Controversy.



  The concern that the neonatal tetanus vaccines in Kenya sponsored by the World Health Organization are laced with sterilizing agents first arose months ago, and the uncertainty continues as the newest round of testing produced another inconclusive standoff between the Catholic Health Commission of Kenya and the Ministry of Health. The Kenyan Bishops initially expressed concern in March and again in October of 2014. The neonatal tetanus vaccine, which is normally given to women …

Who’s Behind the Program to Sterilize Kenyan Women Without Their Consent?



In Paul Ehrlich's crude fantasy, The Population Bomb, "compulsory birth regulation" was to be achieved by polluting the water supply with "mass sterilizing agents." But more sophisticated population controllers dreamed of a contraceptive vaccine that would, with the stick of a needle, sterilize women for years, or a lifetime. This dream became a reality in the early 1990s, when researchers learned that mixing human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-HCG) with tetanus toxoid resulted in a vaccine that not only protected …
