HLI urges Bush administration to rescind population-control policy

.- An international pro-life organization called upon the United States government to revoke its radical population-control policy at a press conference this morning. Human Life International (HLI) says the three-decades-old population-control policy is based on nothing more than a myth and the time has come to rescind the Kissinger Report 2004: A Retrospective on NSSM-200.

“Recent articles in Newsweek and Parade magazines demonstrate that the ‘need’ for population control is nothing more than an over-hyped myth,” said Fr. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of HLI. “The time has come for U.S. government policy to formally acknowledge this same basic truth.”

Fr. Euteneuer said for the past 30 years, billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars have gone to fund United Nations population-control programs and anti-life organizations in developing countries. “This, too, must come to an end,” he said.

Leaders from several of the 13 nations, targeted by the National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM-200), were on hand to tell reporters of the repercussions of this policy on their countries.

HLI also claims that the policy was justified by a secret agenda.

NSSM-200 justified the radical population control methods by claiming it would prevent developing nations from becoming politically powerful; protect U.S. investments in these countries; maintain U.S. access to these countries’ natural resources; and limit the number of young people in these countries, who are more likely to challenge existing social and political norms.
