June 27, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Even when confronted with the deaths of 160 million children in the womb simply because they were girls, the father of the modern population control movement doesnt bat an eyelash.
The problem of sex-selective abortion has been receiving increased scrutiny in the media recently, following the release of Maria Hvistendahl’s book Unnatural Selection, which was reviewed last week in the Wall Street Journal.
In that book the author documents the devastation wrought by widespread female gendercide in countries that favor sons over daughters. She also records a discussion about prenatal gendercide with Paul Ehrlich, the author of the 1977 book The Population Bomb, a seminal work in the modern population control movement.
In The Population Bomb, Ehrlich had mentioned sex selection as a potentially effective tool for reducing population, although effective prenatal gender determinators such as ultrasound had not yet been invented.
When recently confronted with his support for sex-selective abortion by Hvistendahl, Ehrlich reportedly expressed his continued support for the practice. Ehlich told Hvistendahl, “it would be a good idea to let people have their choice so that they could have fewer children and could have what they wanted.”
“You can be aborted as a conceptus, you can be killed at birth, or you can be sold into slavery and die in a slum someplace,” he said.
Hvistendahl writes that after she pointed out that the prenatal killing of girls has forced surviving women into even greater suffering, brought about by higher rates of kidnapping, sex trafficking and marriage brokering, Ehrlich agreed but dismissed the statistics as “the old unintended consequences problem.”
Ehrlich also defended the principle behind mass forced sterilization, a concept mentioned in a 1977 book he co-authored entitled “Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment,” but dismissed as impracticable.
While Ehrlich says critics have taken much of that book out of context, he told Hvistendahl that the idea of reversing fertility - that is, requiring potential parents to petition the government for permission to override the sterilant - would “solve a lot of the things that disturb people the most.” He also suggested that mass sterilization working in tandem with sex-selection technology would be particularly effective for population control interests.
Notably, the 1977 text was co-authored by the head of President Obama’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, John Holdren, who has faced widespread criticism for the pro-population control content found in the text.
What a sick bastard.

Think the U. N. would even consider calling his actions a crime against humanity? Nope.
That institution is so morally bankrupt, I’m surprised they don’t have sex slaves on staff at the U. N. building.
Oh yes, indeed! Those are the only options. No one ever goes on to live a happy, fulfilling life in freedom. /sick libtard
I agree, let the gender ratio be closer to equal, let the girls live.
But then again, the female gender is the key to population growth, hence why he cynically would call it unintended consequences. An unequal male to female ratio would have a bigger effect on population growth than females outnumbering males. This is an ecological principle, but I feel that it does apply here as well.
All these proponents of population control and killing the unborn are alive. How ironic. Elitist, evil POS’s, the whole lot of them.
That is an assumption, which may not be necessarily valid. There may well *be* 'sex slaves' on staff at the UN, with the US taxpayers footing the bill all unknowing. It would not surprise me in the least...
I suspected the swine flu vaccination craze was to sterilize the population.
I”ve read that where ever UN blue helmets go in the world, rapes, pedophilia and other sex crimes skyrocket. They often commit sex crimes agianst those they’re supposed to be protecting.
We are now living in a sick sick world. As a youngster, reading the Bible, I could never imagine how the end of the system of things would occur.
His words described such horrendous things that I simply could not wrap my head around.
And you know, at 40, I still can’t. Even though I’m seeing it through my very eyes, I simply CANNOT wrap my head around it.
The one thing I call the DEMONcratic party is the party of unintended consequences. Just take a look at Sarah.
They vet her like NO ONE else before, expecting to find a sinner, but only come up with a saint (my expression, NOT calling Sarah a saint).
It seems to be moving at a quicker pace as well. Perhaps because I have involved myself I can now see everything going on, but it seems to be moving ahead much more rapidly.
I never had any of those vaccinations; however, I am 40, well past my birthing time.
I thought Erlich was dead. (Maybe he’s a zombie ...)
Anyway, he can go any time, if he thinks the world is overpopulated.
If the next generation is of equal size but 40% female, the population declines if each girl has 2 kids because it doesn’t replace excess males. From a “population control” perspective, fewer girls results in population decline if even replacement level fertility is reached.
Yeah, we’re on the same page there. Shocked I would not be, to find that out.
They did have problems over in the Chad / Sudan region. I remember that. I believe some of the other African operations in other regions had problems along these lines too, but I don’t remember those reports as clearly.
The U.N. and others love to complain about the U.S. and it’s military all the time, but when they go in, it’s quickly clear that our men and training are far far superior to the men and training they have at their disposal.
Like a great sports team with regard to one respect, our troops make it look easy. It’s not. The U.N. has proven that again and again.

I think demonized is more likely than merely ‘sick.’
Of course, he could be both and more.
Another astute observation or sense, imho.
It is part of their commie/socialist/globalist
NEW WORLD ORDER RELIGION/MANTRA/
. . . saving planet earth from the humans etc. . . . demonized policies from hell.
One of the sadder things to me . . . is how many FREEPERS are still so blind about such FACTS.
Such things left the realm of “theory” decades ago.
When will folks wake-up, Wagglebee? When?
Thanks for the input.
Blind? There were FReepers the other day were were SUPPORTING this evil.
When will folks wake-up, Wagglebee? When?
I'm not certain waking up is even enough any more.
Seventy years ago, the United Kingdom and the United States were willing and able to stand up to evil tyranny. Today every nation that has the military ability to stand up to evil won't because they support it.
The real thing is it depends whether you look at statistics, or derive it from limited observation. If one bothered to look at real statistical data, a great deal of the world is not growing at its fastest proportional rate anymore. Think of how long it took for the world population to go from 4 billion to 5 billion, then from 5 billion to 6 billion, then 6 billion to 7 billion. It’s not too far-fetched to believe that the population globally may level off before or at about 9 billion, based on the curved pattern that the population growth has been taking.
I’m not sure the population decline is all too reversible anymore even. It’s possible that over a few generations, unless people change a whole lot, there will be few people around in numerous countries.
I’ve read articles about this many times. How can anything under the aegis of the UN be anything but hellish at worst and sickeningly incompetent and money wasting at best?
Though even back then . . . it was a . . . staged war for manipulative reasons engineered start to finish by the same oligarchic cabal engineering even more dreadful and more satanic manipulations currently.
Christ alone can clean up this mess.
Armageddon has been scheduled.
It’s the stuff between now and then that will be plenty . . . ‘messy.’
BTW, I appreciate such dialogues with you.
Even Scripture talks of 1/3 being killed during the earlier part of the Great Tribulation IIRC.
And another 1/3 of what’s left killed off later.
And that’s still not down to the 200 million left goal of the globalists.
Yet though that time may be short, it could easily be a long time.
BTW, I appreciate such dialogues with you.
Certainly . . . barring dramatic things . . .
Europe is already below survivability given being below replacement birth-rates—it is doomed to Islamization.
The USA is only hanging on barely because of illegal immigration.
I still hold to the 7 years of Tribulation with the last 3.5 years being THE GREAT TRIBULATION with the beginning of God’s utter wrath being poured out on the world at the 3.5 year half-way mark.
Don’t worry, we will become a Latino nation, although I would argue possibly Mexican, because of the different groups of Latinos, the immigrants have a fairly high fertility rate.
I haven't got an answer. You nailed it.
Perhaps you remember this old relic. ;^)
Okay lest you harbor the opinion I don't think the U. N. Flag is good for anything. Let me assure you it is.
I wonder if the U.N. has officially acknowledged that most of the world needs to start encouraging high fertility rates just to level off. That, because it is true. At Japan’s current fertility rate, they figure it will all be diminished within a short time frame.
She also records a discussion about prenatal gendercide with Paul Ehrlich, the author of the 1977 book The Population Bomb, a seminal work in the modern population control movement.That's quite some "seminal work". Did anything that this fraud Ehrlich predicted in that piece of garbage book come anywhere close to what actually happened after it was published? We've had thirty plus years to find out.
If millions of people actually did die from the world-wide famines in the 1980s, sorry, I must not have been paying enough attention.
My rural backward valley has quite a few signs “THE US OUT OF THE UN AND THE UN OUT OF THE US”.
Warms the cockles of my heart to see them.
The UN only wants to encourage evil tyrants, jihadis, and African dictators. From what I can gather. Populations? They don’t like people, unless they’re the tyrants, dictators, jihadis or GLBTs.
I am certain that only God’s intervention will take care of the massive tsunami of evil that is swelling hugely, just like a water tsunami when it approaches shore.
Me too to know they’re there...
Could be the reason why homosexuality and homosexual marriage is being forced upon the whole world, too. An effective method to eliminate procreation?
I have come to realize that Satan has both naive dupes and very willing accomplices,......
You are exactly right. Many don’t even try to hide it anymore. The naive dupes don’t know any better.
And the standard of living in Los Estados Unidos will be on a par with Mexico or Venezuela. Or Honduras.
. . . used to anger, machismo, corruption, greed, a sense of entitlement . . . vengeful . . .
And no amount of worthy teaparties etc will prevent it.
Not even the utmost prayer and fasting will 100% PREVENT it though such could prevent some parts, aspects in some regions and some degrees of severity of it.
Most likely one of the reasons . . .
though the elites are purportedly required to engage in homosexual activity as part of their initiation into the ruling elite . . . and to engage in such at their annual . . . festivities.
Now to be fair not everyone near the top agrees or promotes the policy below. However the policy was produced in a Republican administration and was never rescinded during all the years of Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II...
National Security Study Memorandum 200
Blueprint for world de-population and western domination
NSSM 200 - blueprint for de-population - Interim Newspaper - July 1998
Excerpt - The population-control ideology and the means to achieve it can be found in a U.S. executive-level government document entitled National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200), published in 1974 and declassified in 1989. Although this plan of action was to be activated in developing countries, it was designed as a two-edged sword that could be swung with equal determination in both developed and developing countries alike. The document was signed by Henry Kissinger and directed to the secretaries of defense, agriculture and central intelligence, the deputy secretary of state, and the administrator of the Agency for International Development, with a copy to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The focus of the study was the “international political and economic implications of population growth.”
The UN, the IMF, the World Bank and abortion - Interim Newspaper - January 1999
Excerpt - The official policy of the U.S. regarding population control in foreign policy is spelled out in NSSM 200. The Memorandum became the official guide to U.S. foreign policy on Nov. 26, 1975 and has not been replaced since. NSSM 200, subtitled “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests,” warned that increasing populations in developing countries threatened U.S. strategic, economic, and military interests.

Yup, and I advanced the idea they were closet Pro-Aborts.
