On World Contraception Day (Sept. 26) and International Safe Abortion Day (Sept. 28), the culture of death celebrates its efforts to depopulate the world. The Biden administration must publicly denounce the racist agenda behind its domestic and global policies regarding “sexual and reproductive health.”
As outlined in the 1974 “National Security Study Memorandum 200,” also known as “The Kissinger Report” and subtitled “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests,” the agenda behind “sexual and reproductive health” is not health care but population suppression, particularly in the developing world.
Decisions made at the highest levels in the U.S. government and by wealthy Western foundations profoundly affect the lives of people halfway around the world. No country has escaped the pressure from agencies that advocate for “sexual and reproductive health,” a euphemism that includes contraception, sterilization, and abortion.
The strategy behind this approach is explicitly detailed in “The Kissinger Report.” The document serves as a blueprint for world depopulation and lays out the five-step strategy by which the U.S. government aggressively promotes population control in developing nations in order to have better access to the natural resources of these countries. “NSSM-200” was written because the U.S. National Security Council saw rapid population growth in the less-developed countries (LDCs) as a major threat to our national security.
“NSSM-200″ is devoid of morality or ethics and has directly encouraged atrocities and massive human rights violations in many nations, especially in Africa. As outlined in “NSSM-200,” population control programs could include legalizing abortion, financial incentives for countries to increase abortion, sterilization, and contraception-use rates, indoctrination of children, and mandatory population control and coercion of other forms, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless a pooer country implements population control programs.
As Pope Benedict XVI emphasized in paragraph 28 of “Caritas in veritate,” his encyclical on international development, “openness to life” is at the “center” of any authentic development, and “cannot in any way be detached from questions concerning the development of peoples.” Some parts of the world, he said, “still experience practices of demographic control, on the part of governments that often promote contraception and even go so far as to impose abortion.”
He added: “In economically developed countries, legislation contrary to life is very widespread, and it has already shaped moral attitudes and praxis, contributing to the spread of an anti-birth mentality; frequent attempts are made to export this mentality to other States as if it were a form of cultural progress.”
Local pro-life and family activists in developing nations are under siege from international anti-life and anti-family forces. It is routine for Western governments and foundations to offer substantial financial and infrastructure aid, but on condition of also accepting things like massive shipments of contraceptives or introducing graphic sex education in schools. This is the perverse, and frankly, racist thinking that motivates so much of the population control industry, as detailed in “NSSM-200.”
Rather than providing the essential things people need, western governments and foundations prefer to provide and promote nonessentials—i.e., contraception and abortion—and to undermine the pro-family cultures in many countries. Rather than helping to build and develop, providing aid for building infrastructure, improving food access, providing clean water, training teachers, and encouraging entrepreneurship, they would rather pressure families to have fewer children, convincing developing nations that somehow, they will magically get huge health, social, and economic benefits.
Half a century later, “NSSM-200” remains the foundational U.S. document on population control and continues to represent official U.S. policy, providing a remarkable insight into the mentality of U.S. population control extremists. No wonder the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and agencies of the United Nations, like the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO), dedicate so much of their energy towards “family planning” — i.e., population control.
It is evident by its policies that the Biden administration is wholly committed to advancing the ideology of “NSSM-200,” endorsing its racist blueprint for depopulation as if it were a form of cultural progress. Hence, vulnerable peoples in the developing world will continue to be exploited and suffer under intense pressure from the so-called developed nations and well-heeled foundations to fall in line with their anti-life view of life and family issues.
The Biden administration must reject the blueprint of racial discrimination, end all U.S. aid tied to this agenda, and condemn international organizations that use financial aid to champion population control. Instead, may Biden champion true solidarity with the billions of people struggling to live a dignified life, especially in developing countries.
Let the United States take the lead in using its power and resources to support authentic human development that respects the sacredness of human life, defends the dignity of marriage and family life, and promotes genuine human development that is anchored in respect for human dignity.
