Why Does The U.S. Government Have An ‘Office Of Population Affairs’?

Posted on The American Dream : 03 Aug 2014 05:44 PM PDT

Population Control - Public DomainDid you know that the federal government has an “Office of Population Affairs”?  I didn’t realize this either until someone sent me a link to their website.  The Office of Population Affairs operates under the umbrella of the Department of Health & Human Services, and it might as well be called “The Office of Population Control” because almost everything on the website is about controlling or reducing the size of the population.

On the page describing their “purpose and mission”, they actually admit that “population research” and studying “population growth” are part of their core work.  The following is an excerpt from the official OPA website

**********

Title X is the only federal program dedicated solely to the provision of family planning and related preventive services. The Office of Population Affairs (OPA) administers the Title X program and serves as the focal point to advise the Secretary and the Assistant Secretary for Health on a wide range of reproductive health topics, including family planning, adolescent pregnancy, sterilization and other population issues.

The Office of Population Affairs operates under the direction of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs.

Family Planning Mission
To assist individuals in determining the number and spacing of their children through the provision of voluntary, confidential and low-cost education, counseling, and related comprehensive medical services to eligible clients:

  • To assist in making comprehensive, voluntary family planning services available to all persons desiring such services;
  • To coordinate domestic population and family planning research with the present and future needs of family planning programs;
  • To enable public and nonprofit private entities to plan and develop comprehensive programs of family planning services;
  • To develop and make readily available information, including educational materials, on family planning and population growth to all persons desiring such information;
  • To evaluate and improve the effectiveness of family planning service programs andpopulation research; and
  • To assist in training staff to effectively carry out family planning services

**********

And needless to say, the goal is never to increase the size of the population.

At least in the old days these population control advocates were more honest about what they were trying to do.  For example, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once made the following statement

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

The truth is that this worldview is represented at the highest levels in the White House itself.  Barack Obama repeatedly mentions how much he depends on the advice of his top science adviser John P. Holdren.  Well, as many of you probably already know, Holdren is an enthusiastic proponent of extreme population control measures.

The following is what one writer discovered when he investigated Holdren’s writings…

He offered that “a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources … The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries’ shares within their regional limits … The Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.”

Holdren, et al, believe this global body possesses “ample authority under which population growth could be regulated.” Hiding behind the passive voice, they wrote, “it has been concluded”—by whom?—”that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.” (Emphasis added.) They added that if parents were guilty of “overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility.”

To further reduce the West’s population and carbon footprint, the “de-development of overdeveloped countries…should be given top priority.”

Holdren further, repeatedly, proposed the United States transfer $1.43 trillion to $2.86 trillion of U.S. GNP to Third-World countries every year for several decades.

In a previous article, I included this gem from Holdren…

A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men.

The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.

But to be fair, this is not the first president that has had a nutjob like this as his top science adviser.  George W. Bush actually employed Paul Ehrlich, the author of “The Population Bomb”, as his top science official.  In many ways, Ehrlich is even more extreme than Holdren is.  Here are a couple of quotes from Ehrlich

“To our minds, the fundamental cure, reducing the scale of the human enterprise (including the size of the population) to keep its aggregate consumption within the carrying capacity of Earth is obvious but too much neglected or denied”

**********

“Nobody, in my view, has the right to have 12 children or even three unless the second pregnancy is twins”

These are highly respected members of the scientific community that are personally advising our presidents. And the leading contender to become the next president is also surrounded by these types of people. For example, a key adviser to Hillary Clinton named Nina Fedoroff once made the following statement

“We need to continue to decrease the growth rate of the global population; the planet can’t support many more people.”

It is not politically expedient for our politicians to come right out and proclaim that they are for population control while they are on the campaign trail. But if you look at their actions and at the people that they surround themselves with, the message is exceedingly clear. So what do you think about all of this?  Please feel free to share your thoughts by posting a comment below…

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderfully challenging children and nine grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, for the last ten years or so and am working on a final edit, now. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
