“The U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries. ... Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States” — NSSM-200, the “Kissinger Report.”
The Eight Concentrated Sources of Influence:
The Two Diffuse Sources of Influence:
2008 “Family Planning” Income in the USA
|1,325,000 abortions||$881 million|
|1,200,000 sterilizations||2,585 million|
|Sex education||650 million|
|Total 2008 Income||$9,086 million|
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) Income in 2006
|289,750 abortions||$ 100 million|

|Total 2006 income||$1,018 million|
Population Control Funding by the United States ($2007 millions)
|Total, 1965—2007: $20.150 billion|
“Developed” world governments à International Planned Parenthood Federation à IPPF regional affiliates à National Family Planning Associations
“The less the public knows how we are funded, the better it might be for us.” — ASPIRE Chairman Wilbert Permel, Trinidad & Tobago.
“Strenuous efforts are underway to destroy the consensus reached at the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo. This threat is compounded by the fact that severe funding restrictions are denying the ability of many organizations in this field to serve the needs of millions of women and men” — IPPF 2000 Annual Report.
Some of the Major Population Control Groups in the World
Anti-lifers have to frighten people and make them believe an emergency exists by appealing to a “crisis constituency”
“No country has reduced its population growth without resorting to abortion” — NSSM-200.
“No developed country has brought down its birth rate without a considerable recourse to abortion, and it appears unlikely that developing countries can ever hope to see any decline in their fertility without a massive resort to induced abortion — legal or illegal” — Malcolm Potts, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
“All women have the right to information, education and services necessary for the protection of reproductive health, safe motherhood and safe abortion and, which are accessible, affordable, acceptable and convenient to all users“ — IPPF, Charter on Sexual and Reproductive Rights (1996).
The Missions of IPPF’s Family Planning Associates (FPAs)
Chama cha Uzazi na Malezi Bora Tanzania's (UMATI) (Tanzania affiliate) — http://www.ippf.org/en/Where/TZ.htm
“IPPF has always worked to reduce unsafe abortion through making family planning services widely available. To claim that we promote abortion is absurd” — Ingar Brueggemann, IPPF Director‑General.
“Legislation should provide for immediate access to comprehensive and integrated services, including pregnancy testing, emergency contraception, abortion services, treatment for STDs …at the expense of the State … withholding legal abortion is a form of gender-based discrimination and violence against women” — “Good Practices in Legislation on Violence against Women,” Expert group meeting organized by the United Nations Division for the Advancement of Women and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, downloaded from http://www.reliefweb.int/rw/lib.nsf/ db900sid/YSAR-7LBNE9/$file/Legislation-violence-against-women.pdf?openelement on November 25, 2008.
“All countries should strive to make accessible through the primary health‑care system, reproductive health to all individuals of appropriate ages as soon as possible and no later than the year 2015. Reproductive health care in the context of primary health care should, inter alia, include: ... abortion as specified in Paragraph 8.25. ...” — Standards from the Programme of Action of the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD, 1994), 7.6.
“While we should be working closely with governments we should not be gagged by them. If possible we should lead them. We should not be sedate. Sedateness does not suit us, neither does vain respectability” –– International Planned Parenthood Federation. Annual Report 2002 at http://www.ippf.org/annualreport2002/pdf/ AR2002.pdf.
“Family Planning Associates and other nongovernmental associations should not use the absence of law or the existence of an unfavorable law as an excuse for inaction; action outside the law, or even in violation of it, is part of the process of stimulating change” — International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). The Human Right to Family Planning (1984).
8.20. “The objectives are: (a) To promote women's health and safe motherhood; to reduce greatly the number of deaths and morbidity from unsafe abortion ...” — Programme of Action of the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD).
Their Lying Never Ends
|Women Dying from Illegal Abortions Each Year|
“Liberal institutions straightway cease from being liberal the moment they are soundly established; once this is attained no more grievous and more thorough enemies of freedom exist than liberal institutions” — Friedrich Nietzsche.
“It has been concluded that mandatory population control laws, even those requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under our existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently compelling to endanger the society. Many consider the situation already serious enough to justify some forms of compulsion” –– Paul Ehrlich, founder of Zero Population Growth (ZPG).
“On what basis should such food resources then be provided? Would food be considered an instrument of national power? Will we be forced to make choices as to whom we can reasonably assist, and if so, should population efforts be a criterion for such assistance?” –– NSSM-200.
“There is an alternate view which holds that a growing number of experts believe that the population situation is already more serious and less amenable to solution through voluntary measures than is generally accepted. ... even stronger measures are required and some fundamental, very difficult moral issues need to be addressed. ... The conclusion of this view is that mandatory programs may be needed and that we should be considering these possibilities now” –– NSSM-200.
“Each country will have to decide its own form of coercion and determine when and how it should be employed. At present, the means available are compulsory sterilization and compulsory abortion. Perhaps someday a way of enforcing compulsory birth control will be feasible” –– Alan F. Guttmacher, former Medical Director of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).
“We are going to have to face — as China has faced — the policy of controlling the size of families, and to assume that we can go on without facing this responsibility is totally irresponsible. ... I consider the Chinese government's [population control] policy among the most intelligent in the world. ... it is a policy limited to the heavily overpopulated areas and it is an attempt to feed the people of China. I find it very intelligent“ — Molly Yard, former president of the National Organization for Women (NOW).
“China has every reason to feel proud of and pleased with its remarkable achievements made in its family planning policy and control of its population growth over the past 10 years. Now the country could offer its experiences and special experts to help other countries” — Nafis Sadik, former Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
“None of the colored races shows perceptible signs of declining birth‑rate, all tending to breed up to the limits of available subsistence ... It can mean only one thing: A tremendous and steadily augmenting outward thrust of surplus colored men from overcrowded colored homelands ... Crossings with the negro are uniformly fatal. Whites, Amerindians, or Asiatics — all are alike vanquished by the invincible prepotency of the more primitive, generalized, and lower negro blood. ... In ethnic crossings, the negro strikingly displays his prepotency, for black blood, once entering a human stock, seems never really bred out again” —Lothrop Stoddard. The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy (1922).

"More developed regions" by the United Nations definition include Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
"How many human lives have you saved from death? Continue along this path and do not be afraid, so that the smile of life may triumph on the lips of all children and their mothers” — Pope Benedict XVI, speaking to the Italian Movement for Life organization in Rome on May 12, 2008.
