    Officials within the UN are pushing the notion that the human population should be reduced in order to effectively combat climate change. The long standing notion has been continually pushed by Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). In 2013, Figueres had a conversation with Climate One founder Greg Dalton regarding “fertility rates in population,” as a contributor to climate change. The comments are made at 4.20 into the following video: Climate One Interview

    Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20). Turning right and wrong upside down is a human habit that goes back thousands of years. Modern times are no different. Famous evolutionary biologist and professor of Oxford University, Richard Dawkins, recently showed his hand in a twitter conversation that has gained media attention. The British Broadcasting Corporation, a public service broadcaster among many others in the United Kingdom, reported that a twitter user said to Dawkins, “I honestly don’t...

    The Week ^ | 3/20/2015 | Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry
    Tomorrow is World Down Syndrome Day — and awareness of trisomy 21 (the proper name of the disease) has never been more critical. Trisomy 21 causes physical growth delay, characteristic facial deformities, and mild to moderate intellectual disability. On average, a person with trisomy 21 will have the intelligence of a normal 8 or 9 year old child, though this varies widely — some have graduated high school.I do not know a single family with a child with trisomy 21 who has not regarded them as a joy, much less regretted their existence. The expression "ray of sunshine" has become...

    March 11, 2015 (ALL.org) -- If you have ever heard the word “eugenics,” you probably know that it is a heinous act. And in the 21st century, we’re supposed to be more sophisticated and better behaved than the Nazis or the 18th and 19th century Americans who plotted massive exterminations of the “undesirable” population. In today’s world, where individuals have a host of legal “rights,” it might seem safe to revisit such goals as purifying the human race of genetic defects, preventing births in locations designated by scientists as overpopulated, and using abortion and contraception (often the same thing) to...

    Lewis Reynolds didn't understand what had been done to him when he was 13. Years later, after getting married, the Lynchburg man discovered he couldn't father children. The reason: He had been sterilized by the state. Reynolds was among more than 7,000 Virginians involuntarily sterilized between 1924 and 1979 under the Virginia Eugenical Sterilization Act. Advocates for the surviving victims won a three-year fight Thursday when the Virginia General Assembly budgeted $400,000 to compensate them at the rate of $25,000 each. It's welcome news, Reynolds said. "I think they done me wrong," he said. "I couldn't have a family like...

    A mother of six with an IQ of 70 should be sterilised for her own safety, the Court of Protection has ruled. The Court heard that a further pregnancy would be a "significantly life-threatening event" for both the mother and child. Mr Justice Cobb said the woman had the "same human rights" as everyone else and this was not a case of "eugenics". He has authorised health and council services to intervene and perform the sterilisation. The name of the woman has not been released, to protect the identify of her children.

    In the United Kingdom, a mother-of-six will be taken to the hospital and forced to undergo a sterilization.In 2014, the department of health and social services applied for permission to enter the womanÂ’s home and take her to get sterilized against her will.

    I sometimes gauge the virtue of a particular public policy by posing a hypothetical question: What if we promoted this policy exclusively within a disadvantaged sector? Secular progressives love assisted suicide. They fawned all over Brittany Maynard’s decision to take her own life last year, declaring the beauty of such a thoughtful, pensive, decision. After all, any decision that requires so much deep thought and garners a large online following must be the right one. So here’s the test. What if we marketed assisted suicide as an option, especially to inner-city blacks? Television commercials and billboards could tout a peaceful...

    According to Black Genocide, Planned Parenthood situates 78% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods. It is almost as if Planned Parenthood is targeting black and brown babies. And perhaps it is. Margaret Sanger, the founder of PP shockingly said, "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated." She created the Negro Project to sterilize unwitting black women and others she considered undesirable. Her motto was grotesque as well as Hitler-esque: "More children from the fit, less from the unfit." I well remember, back in 2008, when Lila Rose and LiveAction released recordings of a call an...

    The main reason that the abortion movement cannot quite disentangle itself from its roots in 19th-century eugenics is the niggling, persistent fact that it doesn’t really want to. Consider this from Amanda Marcotte, who is clutching her ironically worn thrift-store pearls over the fact that Indiana may pass a law that would make it a crime for parents to kill their children over a disability. No one is well served when children with disabilities are forced on families that know they don’t have the emotional or financial resources to help them. And this entire bill, which is supported by...

No, I’m not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that.

    In Germany, the birthrate has sunk to just 1.36, worse even than low-fertility Spain (1.48) and Italy (1.4). Western Europe as a whole will most likely shrink from 460 million to just 350 million by the end of the century. And barring dramatic reversal of the foolish One (sometimes Two) Child Policy, China’s population will be reduced in half. Even the USA where a large immigrant Hispanic population immigration has kept birth rates higher, is now facing reduction. A Pew Research Center report found that immigrant births fell from 102 per 1,000 women in 2007 to 87.8 per 1,000 in...

    In the early years of the 20th Century, the “science” of eugenics spread across America, from pulpits to statehouses, with religious zeal. The underlying premise of the eugenics movement was that the undesirable traits of parents would invariably be passed on to their children. While the scientific basis for this assumption had little data to support its conclusions, the new “science” was quickly embraced by the American progressive movement and many of the wealthy. Early funding for eugenics projects came from such wealthy Americans as John Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and oil magnate and founder of the 3-in-1 Oil Company, James...

Talking about the rise of state-level restrictions on abortion, the liberal justice said, "It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people."And remember, a few years ago, Ginsburg had to deny that she believed eugenic thought influenced the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. She had noted a...

But the concept of a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed master Nordic race didn't originate with Hitler. The idea was created in the United States, and cultivated in California, decades before Hitler came to power. California eugenicists played an important, although little known, role in the American eugenics movement's campaign for ethnic cleansing. - See more at: http://hnn.us/article/1796#sthash.2W5ntE2W.dpuf

    Although he admits it “sounds blatantly authoritarian” and “violates just about every core value we possess in a free society,” a noted transhumanist author has said a world government body should forcibly sterilize anyone “deemed unworthy” of parenthood by using implanted microchips. Constitutional attorney and civil liberties expert John W. Whitehead, founder of The Rutherford Institute, warned LifeSiteNews.com earlier this year that political officials would long to use this seminal technology. In an article for Wired.com today, philosopher Zoltan Istvan wrote that the notion first crossed his mind when he heard a blonde nurse say, “with 10,000 kids dying everyday...

    Pro-lifers are regularly accused of waging a war on women when we want to protect women’s health and the lives of the children they carry within. Regulations of abortion clinics to protect women and their children are seen as an attack on abortion access by abortion advocates – not because they want women to have access to what they call safe abortion, but because they know tighter regulations will reduce the number of abortion clinics, and thus the number of abortions will be reduced.We who defend the right to life understood a long time ago that the interest of the...

    Recent reports announcing the era of remote-control contraception herald the very real but slightly horrifying prospects for the future for those who believe that man can literally transform himself into a machine. This phenomenon is known as the cult of transhumanism. One news report calls the remote dispensation of contraception “creepy.” Another explains how this may come to fruition: “A challenge from Bill Gates two years ago has put science on the cusp of a revolutionary, remote-controlled method of birth control.” Technology Review says the wireless implant, if approved for safety and efficacy, could make it possible for a woman to turn her birth control on and...
  • Political solutions can’t work in a spiritual vacuum

    The well-meaning statesmen and politicians who strive mightily for political solutions–such as an Israel-Palestine accord or movement of the Muslim Brotherhood to whatever the world calls democracy–are living in a fool’s paradise. Islam’s hatred of Israel is not political, it’s spiritual at its very core. Political solutions have yet to work, but like the officially insane, we keep doing the same thing over and again. The West has stupidly dug itself a hole by denying Christianity, creating an enormous spiritual vacuum. It denies what created its beauty and prosperity. Russia is trying to sort out its renaissance. China has found...

    Let us stipulate that Jessie Lee Herald is not a paragon of self-restraint. Herald, age 27, lately on trial for child endangerment and other charges in northern Virginia, has seven children by six women — probably. Herald’s uncle admits that his nephew likely does not know the full extent of his progeny. Still, irresponsible — and virile — as he may be, the plea deal he just reached with Shenandoah County prosecutors should raise an eyebrow: In exchange for a reduced prison term, Herald has agreed to get a vasectomy.The United States, as the Associated Press notes, has a “dark...
  • Babies Die from Federal Medical Experiments

    Federal officials are defending an unconscionable act. Between 2005 and 2009, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) supported research on 1,316 premature newborns without requiring parents to be told their baby could die and the baby's oxygen monitor would not show their child's true oxygen level - a violation of their own ethics rules, reports Sharyl Attkisson at The Daily Signal. The experiment was carried out on premature infants at 22 sites. The purpose: to determine how much supplemental oxygen premies should receive. According to NIH, 28,000 premies are born each year out of 3.9 million births, with 14,000 -...

    ‘This book is an attempt to understand the world as it is, not as it ought to be.’ So writes Nicholas Wade, the British-born science editor of The New York Times, in his new book A Troublesome Inheritance. For some time the post-War view of human nature as being largely culturally-formed has been under attack just as surely as the biblical explanation of mankind’s creation began to face pressure in the early 19th century. What Steven Pinker called the blank slate view of our species, whereby humans are products of social conditions and therefore possible to mould and to perfect...

    LONDON, April 22, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A chilling video has surfaced of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger telling a British interviewer her goal is to see vast swaths of the world produce “no more babies.” The 1947 one-minute newsreel features an interview in London's Dorchester Hotel conducted by John Parsons. Sanger is referred to as “Margaret Slee,” reflecting her second marriage to James Slee.

    The idea that the way to protect insects, fish and animals is by preventing human beings from having children is part of an approach known as Population, Health and Environment (PHE) which integrates population control into environmentalist initiatives. PHE dates back to the 1980s and is practiced by mainstream organizations such as the World Wildlife Fund. The Smithsonian’s Woodrow Wilson Center, which is funded partly by the US government, aggressively champions PHE eugenics and USAID funds PHE programs and distributes PHE training manuals derived in part from Wilson Center materials.

    Myth-Making Aside, Eugenics Was a Mostly Progressive Enterprise Wesley J. Smith April 6, 2014 4:58 PM | Permalink I have often stated that biologist/eugenicist Charles Davenport (pictured above) was one of the great villains of American history. A new book by Paul Martin, Villains, Scoundrels, and Rogues: Incredible True Tales of Mischief and Mayhem, includes a chapter on this odious man. Good.But -- if the excerpt in Salon is a reliable indication, there may be other agendas afoot in Martin's writing about Davenport. Indeed, a reader of the article would never guess that eugenics was primarily supported by political progressives who rejected human exceptionalism. From "Hitler's Favorite American": What's...

    The "Unintelligent" Are Not Wanted in Life! Wesley J. Smith April 3, 2014 | Eugenics is pernicious. Its core philosophy holds that some human beings are better than others based on invidious categorization of human capacities and characteristics.Eugenics leads to oppression and even killing. The old eugenics unleashed involuntary sterilization in the U.S. -- as well as infanticide and the murder of disabled adults in Germany.Those horrors put eugenics into hibernation, but it has awakened in the very places it started in the first place -- among the intelligentsia. Oxford bioethicist Julian Savulescu is a leading neo-eugenicist. Now, he proposes...

    Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is the group’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report. Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA’s annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 27. She is being honored, according to PPFA, because of her “leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to...
