Culture Of Life 101 . . . “NSSM-200: Blueprint For World Depopulation”

As the previous article showed, National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM-200), which was written in 1974, lays out a detailed strategy for United States population control programs. It begins by identifying the target nations, the tools that will be used and the organizations that will do the work. The next step is to find durable sources of funding for the population control programs and then work out specific details for the target nation(s).
The population control cartel stridently denies that it is pushing abortion on developing nations, but abortion is in reality the ultimate goal. Abortion, contraception, and sterilization generate more than $10 billion in profits for the “family planners” in the United States, and are just as lucrative in developing nations.
United Nations agencies and NGOs oriented toward population control have written hundreds of documents demanding the worldwide adoption of “reproductive rights” for everyone ten years old and older, while indignantly denying that reproductive health includes abortion. Yet everyone knows that the reproductive health program will not be complete until there is free abortion on demand in every nation on Earth.
As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted to the horror of her supporters, “You cannot have maternal health without reproductive health, and reproductive health includes contraception and family planning and access to legal, safe abortion.”
This belief stems from NSSM-200, of course, which recognized that “no country has reduced its population growth without resorting to abortion.” The document goes so far as to suggest that population control groups pay people in order to increase their abortion, sterilization, and contraception-use rates: “Pay women in the LDCs [lesser-developed countries] 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.”
The final step in the population control program for a nation is to establish and maintain a constant drumbeat of anti-natalist propaganda in order to desensitize and indoctrinate people into abandoning the tradition of large, close-knit families. This, of course, necessitates mandatory explicit sex education, which parents cannot withdraw their children from: “. . . 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 . . . concentrating on the education and indoctrination of the rising generation of children regarding the desirability of smaller family size.”
Once again, a corrupted media lead the way. NSSM-200 recommends that the United States “influence national leaders” and that “improved worldwide support for population-related efforts should be sought through increased emphasis on mass media and other population education and motivation programs by the UN, USIA, and USAID.”
Of course, there will be resistance to this “contraceptive imperialism,” no matter who is trying to impose it. The people of developing nations are not stupid; they can see the encroaching influence of the West everywhere in their countries and they resent it. This means that the Catholic Church and its allies must be sidelined or neutralized, for which groups like Catholics for [a Free] Choice are enlisted. If the Church and the people refuse to be silenced, there is only one avenue open to the population controllers — raw force.
The writers of NSSM-200 may have assumed that the document would remain classified top secret indefinitely, because they were remarkably honest in their opinions. They said: “The conclusion of this view is that mandatory [population control] programs may be needed and that we should be considering these possibilities now.” The document also recommends considering using coercion in an indirect form, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless a targeted LDC implements population control programs:
“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?”
As always, the population controllers must be careful to conceal their motives and methods, especially regarding coercion. NSSM-200 says: “In these sensitive relations, however, it is important in style as well as substance to avoid the appearance of coercion.” In other words, the United States will not avoid coercion itself, of course — just the appearance of coercion.
NSSM-200, which is completely devoid of morality or ethics, has inevitably encouraged atrocities and massive human rights violations in dozens of nations. For example, the United States government has lavishly funded the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) for many years. One of the main targets of UNFPA money is the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and its widely criticized forced abortion and family planning program.
According to its own documents, the UNFPA has donated more than $100 million to China’s population control program; has bought and custom-designed a $12 million IBM 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 an award for the “most outstanding population control program.”

Aging Populations

Conclusions: NSSM-200 was based upon outdated demographic information. It 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 we know that the population of the world will reach about 8.3 billion, and then will begin to decline.
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, South Korea, 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 lesser-developed countries 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 fewer, 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 lesser-developed nations. It symbolizes as no other document does the face of the “ugly American.” It advocates violating the most precious freedoms and autonomy of the individual through coercive family planning programs.
The document represents a classic example of the shortsightedness of the Culture of Death, which always chooses the easier wrong over the harder right.
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.
