The United Nations Population Fund, or UNFPA, is one of the three most influential population control groups in the world, standing alongside the Population Council and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. What makes UNFPA unique is that it has the full authority of the United Nations behind it and enjoys a guaranteed one billion dollars of income annually from the developed nations of the world. Unlike the many other UN agencies, population control is not a sideline or additional task for UNFPA; suppressing the populations of developing nations is its raison d’être.
Its unique status means that UNFPA is answerable to no one and tolerates no moral or ethical limits on its activities. It has fully subscribed to the population control mentality — once you perceive people as a liability to be controlled rather than the supreme asset that must be nurtured and cultivated, you give yourself permission to use any available means to reach your goals.
UNFPA helped to design and implement the draconian Chinese population control program, which for more than 30 years has involved forced abortion, sterilization, and contraception for half a billion women. It has resulted in the deaths of thousands and the brutal fines and jailing of tens of thousands more who would not comply with the one-child program. Minority ethnic groups have been targeted in particular, and UNFPA actually helps to fund these programs. UNFPA’s first three executive directors vocally applauded the agency’s role in China. In Mexico, the agency supports covert abortion, coercive family planning, and involuntary sterilization.
Interestingly, UNFPA defines all illegal abortions as “unsafe.” Yet in Kenya, it gives millions of dollars to Marie Stopes International (MSI), which has boasted of doing illegal abortions both in Kenya and all over the world.
UNFPA claims to be a great champion of “diversity,” but it is the greatest destroyer of the cultures, customs, and faiths of developing nations in existence today. As UNFPA’s former Executive Director Nafis Sadik said, “We need to be constantly chipping away at long-held cultural prejudices against gender equality, human rights, and reproductive choice, especially for women in developing countries.”
UNFPA began its operations in 1969 at the very peak of Western hysteria over the “population bomb.” Its current primary goal is universal access to reproductive health in pursuit of United Nations Millennium Development Goal No. 5. As we all know by now, the term “reproductive health” includes abortion on demand.
Since its founding, UNFPA has spent more than $20 billion in carrying out its mandate to restrict the population growth of developing nations. Almost all of this money comes from 11 rich nations, with the United States donating the most. These nations require a steady flow of natural resources from the less-developed nations, and the UNFPA and other population control groups are the mechanism that ensures that the flow continues. This is entirely in line with the principles outlined in National Security Study Memorandum 200.

Dual Primary Targets:
Youth And Faith

The authors of NSSM-200 saw “anti-imperialist youth” as the number-one danger to the USA’s control of the natural resources of developing nations. Therefore, these young people are one of UNFPA’s two primary targets. Over the past 20 years, UNFPA has churned out more than a dozen major documents outlining its strategies for saturating children as young as ten with contraception, sterilization, and abortion.
In 2010, six of the largest United Nations agencies, including UNICEF and UNFPA, signed Accelerating Efforts to Advance the Rights of Adolescent Girls: A UN Joint Statement. This statement says that its purpose is to “empower the hardest-to-reach adolescent girls, particularly those aged 10 to 14 years.”
One of the “five strategic priorities” mentioned by this statement is: “Ensure adolescent girls’ access to age-appropriate health and nutrition information and services, including life skills-based sexuality education, HIV prevention, and sexual and reproductive health.”
UNFPA intends to achieve this goal by following the strategy laid out in its Framework for Action on Adolescents & Youth, a document which outlines a step-by-step overall plan for propagandizing young people with the pro-contraception, pro-population control, and anti-child message.
The Population Council, UNFPA, UNICEF, and UNAIDS have also cooperated in publishing Generating the Evidence Base for Policies and Programs for Very Young Adolescents. The entire focus of this manual is beginning and implementing “reproductive health” for these young children, including explicit sex education, condom use, and prevention of HIV/AIDS.
Abstinence, on the other hand, is barely mentioned at all, and the words “mother,” “father,” and “parent” appear only as elements in survey questions. The manual asserts that “condom provision should be strengthened” among girls from 10 to 14 years old, that people should not judge them for having sex at such a young age, and that one of the factors that interfere with such young people’s rights is the “illegality of abortion.” All of this and much more is contained in this publication, which is designed to increase “reproductive health” use by very young girls, thus exposing them to exploitation and even worse.
One of the most effective tactics that population control groups use to corrupt the values of young people is to organize so-called youth groups, then provide them with training and materials, and finally send them out to propagandize their peers while closely controlling them from behind the scenes. These front groups are carefully designed to give the appearance of being spontaneously organized by youth. Their purpose is to insinuate various anti-life ideas, especially regarding population control, homosexuality, and abortion, into the minds of the young people of developing nations.
UNFPA has funded several such “youth groups,” the Ottawa-based Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights, Y-PEER and CHOICE for Youth and Sexuality. It also wrote a manual on how to recruit and propagandize young people into agitating for universal access to abortion and contraception for youth as young as ten, and for protection of homosexuals and their unhealthy behavior.
The second primary target of UNFPA is any religious body that might oppose its population control activities. The Catholic Church’s unwavering defense of the family is particularly galling to UNFPA, which sees the structure of the family itself as an obstacle standing in the way of its goals.
Speaking at a February 2009 meeting at Colegio de Mexico in Mexico City, UNFPA representative Arie Hoekman said that the breakup of the family is a desirable thing, representing the triumph of “human rights” over “patriarchy.”
UNFPA’s 2009 report entitled Global Forum of Faith-Based Organizations for Population and Development shows how UNFPA undercuts and undermines traditional religious values in developing nations so that the people are deceived into thinking that their faiths have changed their teachings and now allow the acceptance of contraception, abortion, and sterilization. Aided by traitorous groups like Catholics for [a Free] Choice, UNFPA is making a concerted effort to destroy the effectiveness of its number-one foe — religion — as it attempts to impose “reproductive health” on the entire world.
In 2008, UNFPA published a very important document entitled Culture Matters: Lessons From a Legacy of Engaging Faith-Based Organizations. This publication gives many details on how UNFPA has worked with faith-based organizations in specific nations in order to advance its goal of universal “sexual and reproductive health,” which includes contraception and abortion.


UNFPA exists for a single purpose: To suppress the populations of developing nations. It has supported coercive population control programs, has funded both legal and illegal abortions, and has supplied abortion equipment all over the world. Its leadership has completely lost sight of the value of the most precious possessions the poor of this world have — their families, their children, their faith.
Regardless of how little a nation needs population control, UNFPA is there to provide it. For example, Vietnam has the highest abortion rate in the world and is struggling with a hugely out-of-balance sex ratio. Yet UNFPA thinks that there are still not enough abortions there, and wants even more to be done.
And UNFPA is flooding Mongolia, which has a sparser population density than Wyoming and a below-replacement total fertility rate, with abortion and contraception.
The “population bomb,” if it ever existed, is over. Within 30 years, the population of the Earth will level off and will then it will begin to decline. It is time to retool and redirect the United Nations Population Fund, to change its mission from keeping the population down to improving the lives of the people of developing nations. The vast apparatus of the UNFPA, already in existence, could then confirm the value of people in poor nations instead of making them feel like a burden.
