Population crisis

Recently, Statistics Canada presented the 2001 Census, in which it was reported that population growth in this country is at a record low and that what meagre growth there has been is only due to increased immigration. To sustain a population, a country must have a fertility rate (the number of children a woman will have in her lifetime) of 2.1; Canada's rate ... (Continue reading)

UN begins to consider that the ‘population explosion’ is over

The UN recently convened a meeting of demographers to discuss whether the fertility rates of developing countries like India and Brazil will continue to fall, perhaps even reaching the extremely low fertility rates found in many developed nations. The Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs concluded that it is altogether likely that the fertility of much of the world will sink well below replacement level, ...

The Truth about “Overpopulation”

Ever since Paul Ehrlich released his 1968 book The Population Bomb, many in the modern world have been convinced that maybe the 17th Century British economist Thomas Malthus was right all along: perhaps, if given a chance, human beings will breed like rats and overpopulate the Earth. The "solution" proposed by scientists, the United Nations, and pro-abortion activists in the West has been relatively ... (Continue reading)

Pat Robertson claims China is overpopulated

United States evangelist Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and the Christian Coalition, recently shocked pro-lifers with his support of China's brutal one-child policy. On the April 16 CNN show Wolf Blitzer Reports, Robertson said he doesn't "agree" with forced abortions and forced sterilizations, but he excused them nonetheless: "They've got 1.2 billion people, and they don't know what to do. If every family over there was allowed to ... (Continue reading)

Contradictory UN reports on population

Two agencies disagree on whether growing population is a problem A new report issued by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) contends that population growth has resulted in human misery and environmental ruin throughout the world. UNFPA claims these problems will become calamitous unless women gain access to reproductive services, which includes abortion. UNFPA's annual State of the World Population ("Footprints and Milestones") issued in November almost completely contradicts a report issued a month ... (Continue reading)

U.S. pro-life group seeks to educate Bill Gates on myth of population control

By Paul Tuns An American pro-life group is declaring a partial victory against Microsoft founder Bill Gates one year after beginning an education campaign directed at the billionaire's funding of population control programs. From September to November 1999, the American Life League (ALL) ran ads, entitled Windows to the Truth, in the Eastside Journal in suburban Seattle, as part of their Educate Bill Gates campaign to urge him to end his funding of population control programs through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. According ... (Continue reading)

Contraception not the answer to hunger problem

I have never been an expert at anything, apart from eating and sleeping. But, since I became active in the pro-life movement some years ago, I have taken a special interest in the question of world population. The obvious reason for this is the effect which abortion and contraception must have on the number of new human beings. Having read the 19th-century predictions of Thomas Malthus, that the population growth would outrun the ... (Continue reading)

Let’s give a big warm welcome to number six billion

The impending doom that underlied the news stories when the world's population reached six billion earlier this year is unfounded, and worse, a sign of the devaluation of human life. There is little reason to believe that the earth becomes a worse place to live with each new person. However, Princeton University "ethicist" Peter Singer seems to believe so. He stated in his 1994 book, Rethinking Life and Death, that ... (Continue reading)

UNICEF has strayed from its original mandate

The once-noble United Nations children's agency UNICEF is no longer what it was. It has undergone a facelift. In July l998, in Geneva, the UN officially established a new alliance of three UN social agencies: UNICEF, the World Health Organization and the United Nations Fund for Population Activities. In a press release, the UN Children's Fund and the World Health Organization were said to have "invited" the UNFPA to join them ... (Continue reading)

P.E.I. pro-lifers expose UNICEF’s complicity in abortion

The directors of Prince Edward Island Right to Life were in for a shock when they began to study the 50-year-old United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, says president Pauline MacDonald. Reading Interim columnist Winifride Prestwich's booklet, UNICEF: Guilty as Charged, they learned that: UNICEF is not a true charity, but an international organization controlled by a board of UN representatives, each with their own agenda; Over the past 30 years, it has ...

Biotechnology and global food supply

The food business is far and away the most important business in the world. Everything else is luxury. Food is what you need to sustain life every day. You can't run a tractor without fuel, and you can't run a human being without it either. Food is the absolute beginning. (Dwayne Andreas, former chairman of Archer Daniels Midland Co., Reuters, ...

Third World resists West at UN conference

Pro-lifers assist 'G-77' delegates in defying renewed push for pupulation control With the help of Canadian pro-lifers, delegates from developing countries stood up to the population control agenda of the West at a recent United Nations meeting in New York. Moments after getting on the airplane at LaGuardia airport in New York, Campagne Québec-Vie president Gilles Grondin told LifeSite News that the so-called "G-77" countries present at the "Cairo+5" preparatory meeting even caused an extension of the conference closing date from March ...

De-population scheme wreaks havoc in Peru

Shortly after his 1996 re-election, Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori initiated an ambitious program of population control, featuring "sex education" and sterilization in the heavily Roman Catholic country. Critics of the program see population control as a trade-off with the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and foreign governments for much-needed economic aid. American G. Joseph Rees, a Congressional committee staff aide, went to Peru to investigate charges of human-rights ... (Continue reading)
