What Population Growth Reduction Programs Entail in Practice: Expert

Certain elitists and the United Nations believe the world is overpopulated, and therefore population growth must be reduced. However, population control programs in many countries often use coercive methods, said Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute.

In the view of billionaires, like Bill Gates, with the exception of Elon Musk, the world is overcrowded; especially they believe there are too many poor people, Mosher said on EpochTV’s “Crossroads” program.

However, since the 1990s, the phenomenon of population collapse has been seen in the industrialized nations of Europe, the Far East, North America, Australia and New Zealand, meaning that the population fertility rate is below the replacement rate of 2.1 children per woman, Mosher said. .

A population needs an average of 2.1 children per woman to replace itself from one generation to the next.

“Over the past 25 years, that depopulation, which is less than replacement fertility, has spread all over the world. “Almost all the countries in the world now have too few babies to replace themselves, with the exception of some countries in Africa.”

But Africa faces the problem of very high infant and child mortality rates, so African couples obviously want three to five children so that two or three of them will reach adulthood, Mosher said.

In the United States, before Roe versus Wade passed in 1973, there were about 4 million pregnancies each year and nearly all resulted in live births, Mosher said. After Roe vs. Wade, there were still 4 million pregnancies, but a third of those ended in abortion, he added.

At that time, the birth rate in the United States dropped below the replacement fertility rate each year, with one exception when it claimed to be 2.1 in all racial groups, Mosher said. However, it dropped again after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, he said.

Mosher hopes that life after the overthrow of Roe versus Wade will be respected again in about half of the states and that the birth rate will start to return close to the replacement rate. Children are the only future that family, community and the nation have, he added. “If you have too few children, you’re on a path to basically becoming extinct over time.”

Since 1969, when the United Nations Population Fund was established, the foreign economic aid provided by rich developed countries to poor countries has been strictly attached — namely, countries receiving aid must have a population growth management program in place, often called population stabilization. word, Mosher. said.

“Poor countries, which want foreign aid to develop them economically, have joined the program.”

For example, due to foreign pressure, the Kenyan government has implemented a program aimed at reducing the birth rate to 2.5 children through legal abortion and forced sterilization of women who have given birth to two or three children, Mosher said. . The program includes a massive proliferation of contraceptives, often abortions, that overthrow the pro-life, pro-family mentality of the Kenyan people, he added.

Since the beginning of population control programs 50 years ago, birth rates in third world countries have dropped dramatically, Mosher said. Agencies that promote such programs, however, have billions of dollars at their disposal, and tens of thousands of employees, and they will not “fold up our tents and go home,” he added.

Even if a fertility rate drops to 1.3 or 1.4 children, which means absolute population decline, they will continue with their programs because the population controllers believe there is no place on earth for 7 billion people, Mosher said. They said in their writings that the real population of the world is about 1 billion, “which raises the question of what they are going to do with the other 6 billion of us over time,” he remarked.

In 1974, the US National Security Council drafted a report, known as “The Kissinger Report” (pdf), which analyzed the implications of world population growth.

Under the effects of the rapid population growth in third world countries, The Kissinger Report listed the potential radicalization of these nations due to the large proportion of youths in their populations and international immigration.

“The young people, who are in much higher proportions in many LDCs [less-developed countries] is probably more volatile, unstable, prone to extremes, alienation and violence than an older population. These young people can be more easily persuaded to attack the legal institutions of government or real estate of the “establishment”, “imperialists” and “multinational corporations”, the report reads.

“Migrations to neighboring countries (especially those that are richer or thinner established), whether legal or illegal, can provoke negative political reactions or violence,” the Kissinger report said.

Henry Kissinger is a former Secretary of State in the Nixon and Ford administrations and a trustee of The Trilateral Commission.

Offensive Population Control Program in Peru

Steven Mosher said the Institute he runs has documented mandatory population control programs in about 40 countries.

For example, in Indonesia, the military hunts down women who already have two children and takes them in for mandatory sterilization, Mosher said. “Vietnam has pursued a two-child policy, enforced by forced sterilization and forced abortion [but] many of the other countries did not go that far. ”

A forced sterilization program introduced in Peru in the 1990s was linked to the receipt of foreign aid from the United States, Mosher said. As a result of this program, 300,000 women were sterilized, he added.

Peruvian women who did not undergo sterilization and children of those women were denied access to the state-funded health care and government food subsidy program, Mosher said.

“Doctors and nurses in Peru have been given quotas by women to bring in for sterilization every month, in pain of losing their jobs unless they comply.”

The forced sterilization targeted mainly the poor indigenous people, not the descendants of Spanish colonizers from Peru, he said.

“It is always the majority that sterilizes the minority, the ethnic minority, the religious minority.” “In China, ethnic minority Tibetan or Uighur women are subject to sterilization, not the Han Chinese population which is the dominant ethnicity in China,” Mosher said.

China has led the way in reducing population growth because of its one-child policy, the program that forced abortion widely used even at 7, 8 or 9 months of pregnancy, Mosher said. This policy led to “a massive murder of baby girls before birth and after birth” which caused a shortage of young women in China, as well as massive abuse in terms of forced sterilization, the expert explained.

Despite the abuses, in 1983 the UN Population Fund honored the then head of China’s family planning program with the highest award for achievements in population stabilization, Mosher said. “They actually presented China as a model for other countries in the world.”

Mosher went to China in the 1980s when he was a social scientist at Stanford University, as one of the group of 50 scholars – the first part of American scientists selected to go to China.

“The society that is normally closed to foreigners was unique, for a very short period of time, completely open to me.”

Mosher was in China when his one-child policy began and followed on from women arrested by the Chinese regime for the crime of being pregnant with an illegal second, third or fourth child.

Those women were taken to a camp where they were detained for days and weeks and subjected to “grueling propaganda and brainwashing sessions,” Mosher said.

Next, “they were taken to a local medical clinic, which was turned into an abortion ward for this period, and they were all given lethal injections into the womb to kill their unborn children.”

“As if that was not enough pain and suffering, they were then sterilized. It was a slaughterhouse assembly line, ”said Mosher, who was present in the operating room and watched the events.

Babies of women who were already in labor when they arrived were killed with an injection of formaldehyde administered into the soft spot of the child’s skull as soon as the baby’s head was crowned, Mosher said.

The Chinese regime could not get local doctors to perform these procedures, so they had to bring in military doctors from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to perform abortions, sterilizations and kill babies, he explained.

Over the years 1980 to 2016, when the one-child policy was in place, 400 million abortions were performed “meaning the 400 million unborn and sometimes newborn children were sacrificed,” Mosher said.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ended its one-child policy in 2016 when a labor shortage in the country reached 4.1 million workers, Mosher said.

However, the CCP did not release its grip on Chinese population growth control, as it restored the two-child policy that was in place before 1980.
