Ted Turner Proposes One-child Policy, China Expert Responds with Facts


According to Steven W. Mosher, president of the Population
Research Institute and internationally recognized China expert, this
notion is absurd.

Front Royal, VA, 12/06/10 — Ted Turner, the founder of
CNN, called on world leaders Sunday to address the global warming
crisis by drastically reducing the number of people on the planet.

Maintaining that the very future of humanity was at stake,
Turner urged immediate action: “If we’re going to be here [as a
species] 5,000 years from now, we’re not going to do it with seven
billion people,” said Turner, who went on to propose the
immediate adoption of a global one- child policy.

Turner makes it clear that he is not proposing an unplanned
pregnancy be viewed as a criminal act, and women who violate his
one-child policy should not be forced to have abortions and
sterilizations. In fact, he flatly denies that such things happen in
China at all, instead claiming that the Beijing regime has enforced
the policy “without, as far as I can see, Draconian
steps.”

According to Steven W. Mosher, president of the Population
Research Institute and internationally recognized China expert, this
notion is absurd.

“In his panic about global warming, Turner apparently
hasn’t looked very far,” says Mosher, “for Draconian is
precisely what China’s forced-pace population control is. I know. I
have spent three decades studying it.”

“The Chinese population control police don’t merely
‘encourage people to have one child,’ as Turner says,”
Mosher continues. “They arrest women for the crime of being
pregnant with an illegal child, they subject them to detention without
trial, and they forcibly abort them if they don’t ‘voluntarily
consent’ to an abortion.”

Mosher goes on to assert that a so-called
“voluntary” population control program simply doesn’t
exist. “They are entirely ‘voluntary’ until someone refuses
to submit to the knife,” Mosher continues. “At which time
the pretence of ‘voluntarism’ is abandoned, threats start being
made, and forced sterilizations follow.”

“CNN has reported such stories before,” Mosher
concludes. “But apparently he doesn’t even watch the news
network that he founded. Or any other, for that matter.”
