Poem, “over population”

I received this population poem yesterday via email: the world is overpopulated sometimes people make mistakes sometimes people die to make the total population healthier sometimes when a woman decides that the man she chose was a wrong choice giving that person a child would be a travesty of life sometimes those people are children […]

China’s one-child policy will stay

We Reuter’s story on a Chinese official’s hint his country may be ending its despotic one child per family policy due to the social upheaval it is causing. Well, an apparently higher up Chinese official has moved quickly to squash that hope. According to the

Demographic winter

by Jill Stanek Rich and I are returning home from our Hawaiian vacation today, which has sensitized me more than ever to the devastation of population decline. One elderly half-Hawaiian told me she thinks there are no pure blooded Hawaiians left; politically correct to blame Westerners for the Hawaiian demise. Numbering anywhere from 300k-500k or […]

It’s about population control, not “choice”

By Bethany Kerr: Planned Parenthood has done a remarkable job deceiving millions of women into believing a lie – that PP cares about them and their reproductive “choices.” But it doesn’t take much research of PP’s history to know this is not true. Does PP really have an interest in serving women and supporting them […]

Liberal extinction, by the numbers

New America Foundation fellow Phillip Longman in USA Today on March 13 (synopsized from a longer piece in the March/April issue of Foreign Policy magazine) says basically this: Population equals power; therefore, conservatives/traditionalists have historically and will soon again inherit the earth.

Addendum to my previous post… Hyscience quotes the American Thinker on another point, drawn from a Washington Times piece yesterday that included this: Given France’s egalitarian ideals, the notion of creating perks to attract professional mothers did not go down well with the socialist opposition…. Demographic trends in Muslim and non-Muslim communities are rarely mentioned […]

Why doesn’t MSM call it an “underpopulation crisis”?

The Chicago Sun-Times reports today that France will offer new financial incentives for mothers to have third children. Reports the Sun-Times: France isn’t alone in worrying about the need to encourage births. Across Europe [there is]… a decline in fertility rates that some fear could lead to economic decline.

Rampell argues that if only poor people in America could get free birth control and more comprehensive sex education, have “easy access” to abortions in unregulated clinics, and receive more government-sponsored childcare by expanding the welfare state, then unwanted pregnancies would be a thing of the past and Americans would live happily ever after.

Oh, the joy of a liberal utopia.

Rampell doesn’t pause to consider other factors that have seriously contributed to the disparity between the rich and poor on out-of-wedlock births. Instead of looking at the issue in terms of personal choice regarding marriage and childbirth, as well as personal responsibility, and respecting all people as rational human beings capable of self-government, she concludes that a “trap” is being laid; someone must be doing something to these women or not enough for them. Neither is truly the case….

When it comes to finding solutions that will help low-income single mothers, we need to do more than just dish out contraceptives (which will be ineffective for those who are actually choosing to have babies out of wedlock), herd them into unregulated abortion clinics, give them “comprehensive” sex education that fails to factor in the spiritual and moral dimension of human beings, and then continue their dependence on government and the cycle of poverty by increasing welfare programs….

I can just hear the mockery now and the hysterical screams of “Don’t stigmatize my choice to have sex!” But no one is stigmatizing sex, let alone your choice to have it. What’s being stigmatized in our culture is marriage and the choice not to have sex….

[S]ome of us have a higher view of women — that they don’t have to be controlled by their base desires, by poverty, by fear, by dependency — all of which drive us to more constricted and unhappy lives.

We can do better. We have done better. And we can be better again.

~ D.C. McAllister (pictured), responding to Catherine Rampell’s assertion that “sex is for rich people” and that “a trap” is laid for poor people who want to have sex, The Federalist, October 21
