Exposing the Global Population Control Agenda

By Brian Clowes, Ph.D.

The Formalization of United States Population Policy

The United States National Security Council is the highest decision-making body on foreign policy in the United States. On December 10, 1974, it promulgated a top secret document entitled National Security Study Memorandum or NSSM-200, also called The Kissinger Report. Its subject was “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” This document, published shortly after the first major international population conference in Bucharest, was the result of collaboration among the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Departments of State, Defense and Agriculture.

NSSM-200 was made public when it was declassified and was transferred to the U.S. National Archives in 1990.

Although the United States government has issued hundreds of policy papers dealing with various aspects of American national security since 1974, NSSM-200 continues to be the foundational document on population control issued by the United States government. It therefore continues to represent official United States policy on population control, and is posted on the USAID website.

NSSM-200 is critically important to pro-life workers all over the world, because it completely exposes the unsavory and unethical motivations and methods of the population control movement.

The Purpose of NSSM-200

The primary purpose of U.S.-funded population control efforts is to maintain access to the mineral resources of less-developed countries, or LDCs. NSSM-200 says that the U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries. That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interest in the political, economic, and social stability of the supplying countries. Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States.

In order to protect U.S. commercial interests, NSSM-200 cited a number of factors that could interrupt the smooth flow of materials from LDCs to the United States, including a large population of anti-imperialist youth, whose numbers must be limited by population control. The document identified 13 nations by name that would be the primary targets of U.S.-funded population control efforts. Under the heading of “Concentration on key countries” we find:

Assistance for population moderation should give primary emphasis to the largest and fastest growing developing countries where there is special U.S. political and strategic interest. Those countries are: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Columbia [sic]. … At the same time, the U.S. will look to the multilateral agencies, especially the U.N. Fund for Population Activities which already has projects in over 80 countries to increase population assistance on a broader basis with increased U.S. contributions. This is desirable in terms of U.S. interests and necessary in political terms in the United Nations.

According to NSSM-200, elements of the implementation of population control programs could include:

  • the legalization of abortion;
  • financial incentives for countries to increase their 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 an LDC implements population control programs.

NSSM-200 also specifically declared that the United States was to cover up its population control activities and avoid charges of imperialism by inducing the United Nations and various non-governmental organizations—specifically the Pathfinder Fund, the International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) and the Population Council—to do its dirty work.

Cause of Massive Human Rights Violations

The document has directly and inevitably encouraged atrocities on an enormous scale in dozens of the world’s nations. Just four examples are shown below.

  • China. For many years, the United States government funded the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). In April, 2017, the Trump Administration finally took the step of ending UNFPA funding. Why? One of the main targets of UNFPA money is the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The State Department grounded the change of policy the fact the agency “supports, or participates in the management of, a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization” in China. While the UNFPA denies it, according to its own documents, the UNFPA has donated more than $100 million to China’s population control program; financed a $12 million computer complex specifically to monitor the population program; provided the technical expertise and personnel that trained thousands of Chinese population control officials; and presented China with a United Nations award for the “most outstanding population control program.” Those unfamiliar with the countless abuses perpetrated under this program might consider reading material from 2015-present at the links for the  U.S. Congressional Hearing on China and Population Research Institute (PRI) for evidence. As the PRI article states, “More children were aborted under the one-child policy than the entire population of the United States.”
  • Peru. During the years 1995 to 1997, over a quarter of a million Peruvian women were sterilized as part of a program to fulfill then-president Alberto Fujimori’s family planning goals. Although this campaign was called the “Voluntary Surgical Contraception Campaign,” many of these procedures were obviously coerced. In fact, women whose underweight children were on government food programs were threatened with the withholding of this food if they refused to be sterilized, and others were kidnapped from their families and forcibly sterilized.
  • Uganda. Uganda became the first African country to roll back its adult HIV infection rate, from 21 percent in 1991 to about six percent in 2004, a 70 percent decrease. The nation accomplished this amazing feat by discouraging condom use and by changing the behavior of the people. The population control groups could not allow this success to interfere with their inflexible template, so they aggressively undermined President Yoweri Museveni’s program. Timothy Wirth, president of the United Nations Foundation, called this highly effective program “gross negligence toward humanity.” The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Population Services International, CARE International, and others have been pushing condoms as hard as they can in Uganda. Rates rose over seven percent, which Edward Greene, former senior research scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health, ascribes to riskier behavior and less fear of HIV as a death sentence. Recently rates have declined back to 6.2% again.  Nevertheless, Uganda’s initial success rate is perhaps the most egregious example of population control ideology trumping the science of proven HIV prevention programs.
  • India. In 2014 there was renewed international attention on India’s continuing forced sterilization program after dozens of women were killed and many more harmed due to the assembly line procedures being done in grotesquely unsanitary conditions. Female sterilization is still India’s primary method of “contraception.” According to the New York Times, as of 2016 four million tubal ligations are still done annually.  This continues to be financed by the US and other Western governments and foundations. As of 2017 there are no plans to stop sterilizations, but the Indian government is introducing free injectable contraceptives, which will also have major negative health impacts on women.

Outline of the Population Control Strategy in NSSM-200

NSSM-200 explicitly lays out the detailed strategy by which the United States government aggressively promotes population control in developing nations in order to regulate (or have better access to) the natural resources of these countries.

The following outline shows the elements of this plan, with actual supporting quotes from NSSM-200:

  • The United States needs widespread access to the mineral resources of less-developed nations (quote shown above).
  • The smooth flow of resources to the United States could be jeopardized by LDC government action, labor conflicts, sabotage, or civil disturbances, which are much more likely if population pressure is a factor: “These types of frustrations are much less likely under conditions of slow or zero population growth.”
  • Young people are much more likely to challenge imperialism and the world’s power structures, so their numbers should be kept down as much as possible: “These young people can more readily be persuaded to attack the legal institutions of the government or real property of the ‘establishment,’ ‘imperialists,’ multinational corporations, or other—often foreign—influences blamed for their troubles.”
  • Therefore, the United States must develop a commitment to population control among key LDC leaders, while bypassing the will of their people: “The U.S. should encourage LDC leaders to take the lead in advancing family planning and population stabilization both within multilateral organizations and through bilateral contacts with other LDCs.”
  • The critical elements of population control implementation include:
    • Identifying the primary targets: “Those countries are: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Colombia.”
      Enlisting the aid of as many multilateral population control organizations as possible in this worldwide project, in order to deflect criticism and charges of imperialism: “The U.S. will look to the multilateral agencies, especially the U.N. Fund for Population Activities which already has projects in over 80 countries to increase population assistance on a broader basis with increased U.S. contributions.”
    • Recognizing that “No country has reduced its population growth without resorting to abortion.”
    • Designing programs with financial incentives for countries to increase their abortion, sterilization and contraception-use rates: “Pay women in the LDCs to have abortions as a method of family planning. … Similarly, there have been some controversial, but remarkably successful, experiments in India in which financial incentives, along with other motivational devices, were used to get large numbers of men to accept vasectomies.”
    • Concentrating on “indoctrinating” [NSSM-200’s language] the children of LDCs with anti-natalist propaganda: “Without diminishing in any way the effort to reach these adults, the obvious increased focus of attention should be to change the attitudes of the next generation, those who are now in elementary school or younger.”
    • Designing and instigating propaganda programs and sex-education curricula intended to convince couples to have smaller families, regardless of social or cultural considerations: “The following areas appear to contain significant promise in effecting fertility declines, and are discussed in subsequent sections … concentrating on the education and indoctrination of the rising generation of children regarding the desirability of smaller family size.”
    • Investigating the desirability of mandatory [NSSM-200’s language] population control programs: “The conclusion of this view is that mandatory programs may be needed and that we should be considering these possibilities now.”
    • Considering using coercion in other forms, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless a targeted LDC implements population control programs: “On what basis should such food resources then be provided? Would food be considered an instrument of national power? Will we be forced to make choices as to whom we can reasonably assist, and if so, should population efforts be a criterion for such assistance?”
  • Throughout the implementation process, the United States must hide its tracks and disguise its programs as altruistic:

“There is also the danger that some LDC leaders will see developed country pressures for family planning as a form of economic or racial imperialism; this could well create a serious backlash. … The U.S. can help to minimize charges of an imperialist motivation behind its support of population activities by repeatedly asserting that such support derives from a concern with:

The right of the individual couple to determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of children and to have information, education, and means to do so; and
The fundamental social and economic development of poor countries in which rapid population growth is both a contributing cause and a consequence of widespread poverty.”

The Basic Question: Is Population Control Necessary?

There is growing awareness that the world “population explosion” is over or, indeed, that it never actually materialized. When the population scare began in the late 1960s, the world population was increasing at a rate of more than two percent per year. It is now increasing at less than one percent per year, and this rate is expected to continue to drop due to continuing population control activities.

NSSM-200 predicted that the population of the world would stabilize at about 10 to 13 billion, with some demographers predicting that the world population would balloon to as high as 22 billion people. Now it is estimated that by 2050 population will level out at around 9.7 billion.

The worldwide application of the strategies recommended in NSSM-200 has resulted in regional population growth rates decelerating so fast that they are already causing severe economic and social problems in Europe, the former Soviet Union, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong. Many developing nations are now aging even more rapidly than the developed world, which foretells of even more severe problems for their relatively underdeveloped economies. The developed nations had the opportunity to become rich before they became old; if a nation becomes old first, it will never become rich.

From the very beginning, the concept of a “population explosion” was an ideologically motivated false alarm specifically designed to allow rich nations to pillage the resources of the poorer nations. The resulting push for population control in LDCs has borne absolutely no positive fruit in its decades of implementation. In fact, population control ideologies and programs make it even more difficult to respond to the impending grave crisis looming in the form of a disastrous worldwide “population implosion.” It is time to begin urging families to have more children, not less, if we are to avoid a worldwide demographic catastrophe.

The first step in such a massive change in policy is, of course, to change our vision and our values. In order to do this, we must repudiate old ways of thinking and outmoded ways of accomplishing our objectives.

NSSM-200 represents the worst aspect of the “advanced” nations meddling in the most intimate affairs of less-developed nations. It reinforces the image of the “ugly American.” It advocates violating the most precious freedoms and autonomy of the individual through coercive family planning programs.

NSSM-200 purports to show concern for the rights or welfare of individuals and of nations, but it was conceived from the idea of the “right” of the United States to have unfettered access to the natural resources of developing nations. The United States and the other nations of the developed world, as well as ideologically-motivated population control NGOs, should be supporting and guiding authentic economic development that allows the people of each nation to use their resources for their own benefit, thereby leading to an enhancement of human rights worldwide and healthier economies for all.

No human relationships are closer or more intimate than those found in the family. Yet the “developed” world has spent more than 137 billion dollars just since 1990 attempting to control the number of children born to families in developing nations through the widespread imposition of abortion, sterilization and birth control under the umbrella terms “family planning services” and “reproductive health.”

All that the tens of billions of dollars of population control expenditures have accomplished is to make hundreds of millions of large poor families into small poor families. It is unfortunately left to our imagination to wonder what might have happened if these resources had been invested in health and educational infrastructure, and in research dedicated to finding peaceful strategies to transition nations from corrupt governance to truly representative and accountable courts and public service sectors.

Children are not an obstacle to development, they are the hope for the future of any society. People are not the problem, they are the solution.

  1. Well its states in our constitution those that have the ability (Government or Elite) have the responsibility to take action. Now what are the responsibility well population control could be one. China should be down sized by all means nesessary in my book not the united states at about 500,000.000. All women in the world should hav there tubes tied at the age of 10 so they can live there lives with out getting pregnat by force by under age by wrong choice in there lives an cant get pregnat til the age of 25 if they chose to do so. That way they can live free from the fear of bringing in babies to a world were there lives are not addiquit. No why not snip the male. Now the women would say well once a man is snip there is no coming back as a women can get un-tied an then can have kids but only 2 kids. With the man she marries if she is to divorce the man she with she will get her tubes tied an can never have kids with no other man same goes for the man he has kids an divorces his wife he gets snip an is not allow to have kids with other women that alone should stop both sides from having kids with everybody they get in volve with. Is it crule an over controling not in my book it is comon sense to help keep the population down an help the planet as well an force the people to stay together which if they do they will be allowed to have 2 more children after 20yrs of being together if they are up to it. No ofcourse this New World Law will be implimented by the vote of all the people an government to try to understand that we need to do this for the World sake not just our own feelings. This J.J.J.G of Spanish decent born as an American. . .

    1. Some people WISH they could make everyone on the planet do what they say, as if they are gods to be obeyed. As if the lies (bogus science) that they shroud themselves in is a regal cloak. Not going to work. They can keep lying and keep failing. The satanic new world order types are destined for destruction, and sooner than you think. And even prior to that, no reasonable, free people are going to subject their bodies to government dissection and domination like the poor, subservient chinese. It is curious to see the money printing and government bribing “elite” pretend to be the guardians of the human race. The are only the masters of fools, those too braindead to see through their lies.

  4. Who is identified with the Global Climate Agenda? Could they be connected to the “Global Population Control Agenda”? Connection or not the vast majority of scientist say our planet is under siege and stressed. Some naysayers utter that the planet goes through climate change every 10K years or so. That is true. However, during this cycle one thing is different… Mother Earth is supporting, feeding and disposing of waste for 8 billion humans and 10s of billions of other forms of life. Scientists say that Mother earth is under stress. With all his knowledge on the subject presidential candidate Donald Trump calls global climate message a “hoax”. Needless to say he will not get our vote. Is there further evidence?
    The Artic and Greenland ice shelves are melting, seas have risen and there is evidence of a threat to costal communities. Moreover, human activity and encroachment into formerly pristine regions plays havoc on the ecology. Today “Papa” Hemmingway would not be able to write his novel “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” because the mountain’s snow cap is all but gone.

    Then, look at our food producers. For strictly economic reasons they are injecting and spraying lethal substances into our food in order to speed maturity.

    God save the planet.

  5. Good article, Dr. Clowes.

    Any perceived need for global population control is no reason to do so using unethical means. That said, we know that Machiavellians are out there and will justify some distorted system of ethics in order to accomplish killing a significant number of people for the hope of the survival of their own progeny.

    It occurred to me that many of the questionable if not downright evil policies we face today are geared toward lowering the birth rate or generating death. Aside from abortion, for example, take the whole homosexuality and transgender issue. What better way to keep people from having babies and getting them to willfully submit to sterilization? Also, I had not known about the Ugandan tactic. It would be interesting to see the statistics on STDs in countries that provide condoms to their people versus countries that don’t. Another example may be the intentional arming of radical Islam. What better way than war to get people killed off.

    On the other side of it, genetic research is moving along by leaps and bounds. The reason, I suspect, is that eugenics is the other side of the coin. For those that remain, they want to ensure that all the genetic diseases are eradicated. It’s another reason for pushing prenatal testing with an eye toward aborting defective children.

  6. “None Dare call it a Conspiracy” by Gary Allen, 1971 book and youtube speech. The new world order explained. Rockefellers established Population Council in 1950s and still exists today. Wikipedia. The long-lasting (4 years) birth control implants Nexplanon etc. PC developed for 3rd world illiterates is now implanted in US girls. Etonogestral/Nexplanon Lawsuits: this drug can kill or sterilize. Implants are pushed onto career-minded women.

  7. I always thought that the “Global Village” would educate people and bring them up to 1st world standards. As it turns out, the corporations want to bring the entire world down to one low exploitable level. Raise the standard of living instead of stealing everything and over population will take care of itself.

  8. The main weapon that is currently being used to stem population is without question the promotion of homosexuality. There can be no doubt that those who wish to control populations haven’t slept on this particular weapon and it’s ability to destroy the traditional family.

    1. I suspect the enormous push for elderly innocs for flu, pneumonia, shingles, etc. is a tactic for hastening death of vulnerable, frail seniors(& not only frail) in an effort to control population & resulting use of public health/food assistance. Any comments?

  9. Hi there,I read your new stuff named “Exposing the Global Population Control Agenda – Human Life International” daily.Your humoristic style is witty, keep up the good work! And you can look our website about تحميل اغاني.

  10. Education for all particularly the girl child and incentives like free education up to university and jobs for the prescribed number of children. Parents to shoulder full cost of education for the extra children who will not take priority in public job placement.
