The population control agenda was exposed by Dr Brian Clowes, an expert in life and family issues, during a presentation to attendees at Family Life International’s Living the Splendour of Truth conference.
Dr Clowes’ address explained the agenda of the population control movement, citing colonisation of the mind as an aim in order to obtain the primary objective of accessing natural resources. Acquiring these natural resources is critical in order to continue the high standard of living experienced in the West.
Population suppression through colonisation of the mind
Pointing out that while it was once acceptable to colonise a country through weaponry, this was no longer the case. “What is acceptable” Clowes stated “is to take over the minds of people by making them think that children are a bad thing.”
“Instead of colonising the land, we colonise their minds with bad ideas and the women’s bodies with bad drugs.”
Population suppression is the primary weapon of choice by governments who filter the money through organisations such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Marie Stopes International, Family Health International and others.
These organisations then implement the plan for “worldwide sterility for as long as possible” so as to decrease the world’s population to just 250 million people.
Measures employed to reduce fertility
A 1969 memorandum entitled “Examples of Proposed Measures to Reduce US Fertility by Universality or Selectivity of Impact” reveals the proposed measures to reduce US fertility. The memo from Frederick Jaffe, Vice President of Planned Parenthood World Population to Bernard Berelson, President of the Population Council, shows the lengths to which population controllers will go.
Dr Clowes noted that “all of these methods were adopted in our [US] push to hold down the populations of other countries.” The following methods are outlined in the memo:
- Restructure the family by postponing or avoiding marriage.
- Alter the public image of ideal family size.
- Compulsory sex education of children.
- Encourage increased homosexuality.
- Educate for family limitation.
- Put fertility control agents in the water supply.
- Require women to work and provide just a few childcare facilities.
- Limit or eliminate public financed medical care and all other aid to families of more than a certain number of children.
- Compulsory or forced abortion for out-of-wedlock pregnancies.
- Compulsory sterilisation of all who have more than two children.
- Confine childbearing to a limited number of adults.
- Certificate permits for couples to have children.
- Payments to accept abortion, contraception and sterilisation.
Clandestine methods of population control
Revealing that “there is no morality in the population control movement”, Dr Clowes stated that the population controllers “will do anything they possibly can to hold down the population of developing countries.”
In order to illustrate the lengths organisations would go, Clowes shared what he personally witnessed when visiting the Philippines in 1996. At the time, he stayed with Dominican nuns who were also qualified medical doctors. Every day the nuns would remove IUDs from women who had no idea they had them.
This horrific situation was the result of a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) “Safe Motherhood” programme initiated a few years prior. In this programme, females between the ages of 15 and 44 were offered pelvic examinations and during these exams they were fitted with an IUD without the knowledge or consent of the women.
Dr Clowes explains that practices to suppress the population are done “under the guise of beneficial humanitarian or other efforts.”
These clandestine methods include
- spending money on population control instead of clean water;
- banning DDT so as to preserve the eggs of endangered and common bird species;
- promoting condoms despite knowing that they frequently break, tear and slip off;
- supplying small arms and heavy weaponry to both sides of each African conflict;
- genetically modifying corn so it has a contraceptive effect; and
- providing post abortion care with manual vacuum aspirator (MVA) – with the real intent of providing illegal abortions.
The real fear
“What they are afraid of is a demographic cross” Dr Clowes explained. “The white race dying out and other races rising again.”
In 1950 a fifth of the world’s population was found in Europe and only 9% in Africa. However, that has now changed dramatically, and by 2050 Africa will have 1/5 of the world’s population while Europe will only have 8%. “Africa is gaining tremendous power, and if they can kick out the population controllers and overcome their own political corruption, Africa will lead the world by 2050” Dr Clowes said.
Discussing density of population in Africa as opposed to England, Dr Clowes pointed out that “it’s only overpopulation if its Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America.”
New Zealand and Oceania
Some of the non-governmental organisations which push population control in New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and the whole Oceania region include Family Health International, Population Research Bureau, the Guttmacher Institute, Population Services International, UNFPA, International Consortium for Medical Abortion, International Women’s Health Coalition, Advocates for Youth, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, Rainforest Alliance and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
Spending in the Oceania region is the highest per person in the world. Where $6 per person is spent in Asia, a massive $106 is spent per person in this part of the world. The Caribbean come in second with $76 per person and Africa at $70 per person.
Primary motivations behind Population Control
Presenting five main motivations behind population control, greed, racism, environmentalism, fear of famine in the West and self-hatred, (which is the idea that human beings are a “plague” on the earth), Dr Clowes focused on one motivation in particular, that of greed.
Dr Clowes points out that the primary motivation is “not upholding the population’s standard of living”, rather it is because of the West’s high standard of living and “we don’t have enough natural resources to be able to sustain it so we have to be able to access these natural resources from other countries.”
The way to do this is to “limit the populations of poor countries so we can continue to access – or steal – their natural resources”.
Cannot lose hope
Concluding his presentation, Dr Clowes reminded the audience that despite being “outspent and outmanned a thousand to one” we can never lose hope.
Quoting Pope Leo XIII in Sapientiae Christianae (On Christians as Citizens), attention was drawn to the Christian mission. “Christians are, moreover, born for combat, whereof the greater the vehemence, the more assured, God aiding, the triumph: ‘have confidence; I have overcome the world’.”
Dr Clowes then finished the presentation by sharing the thoughts of Congressman Henry Hyde, a great pro-life champion:
“When the time comes as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the Final Judgment, I’ve often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone, standing before God – a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world – and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, ‘Spare him, because he loved us;’ and God will look at you and say not ‘Did you succeed?,’ but ‘Did you try?”
