Zombie charities push population control

As a conservative, I don't have much use for foreign aid, preferring to support private charitable efforts overseas. But when Washington politicians began to dole out huge sums of money several decades ago, existing nonprofits lined up for their share of the take.

War on India Still an Emergency

This week marks the 40th anniversary of the beginning of a reign of horror in Indian history. On this day, 40 years ago, India declared a state of emergency and gave the power to rule by decree to the prime minister, Indira Gandhi.

Even as Population Growth Dramatically Slows, the U.N. Keeps Hyping "World Population Day"

The Earth is Not "Sick" and Mankind is Thriving as Never Befor

As the father of nine children, I am necessarily no fan of "out-of-control consumerism." On the home front, our "consumerism," such that it is, is rationed to meet our needs, not our wants.

The New York Times Throws in the Towel on "Overpopulation"

My guess is that you, gentle reader, will be as astonished as we were by the top-of-the-website New York Times article discrediting the population alarmism of the past fifty years. In "The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion" the newspaper has finally (several decades too late) thrown population control on the ash heap of discredited ideas.

Sterilization Camps in India

Last November, 83 women were sterilized in a matter of hours at a sterilization camp in the east Indian state of Chhattisgarh. At least a dozen women died from the unhygienic conditions, and the large number of deaths in one sterilization camp garnered international media attention. While sterilization camps rarely claim a dozen lives at a time, women are routinely maimed and killed in sterilization camps in India. In the four months since news of the Chhattisgarh camp broke, sterilization camps and their horrors steadily continue.

Kenyan Bishops not Satisfied with Government Response to Vaccine Controversy

Violent population control continues in China

Contrary to recent reports, China's population control policy still systematically enforces a policy of coerced abortion, sterilization, and child abandonment. The propaganda, coercion, and violence used by the Chinese Family Planning police continues to violate the rights of Chinese women, men, and their unborn children.

USAID Funding of Sterilization Camps in India, Part 2

Earlier this week, we released a report outlining some of the horrors of India's sterilization camps. We called the world's attention to the US Agency for International Development's complicity in coercive sterilization camps in India.

USAID Funding of Sterilization Camps in India

Women's wombs are inflated with bicycle pumps. Some are paid as little as 600 rupees - about $10 - to be sterilized. Some see - and feel - doctors pull shreds of their organs from their abdomens during procedures. Doctors reuse gloves and needles for dozens of surgeries. Antibiotics or painkillers, if used, may be tainted with rat poison.
