(NEW YORK – Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute C-FAM) The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) released its annual State of the World Population Report yesterday, linking efforts to promote “sustainable development” and affect “climate change” to its “reproductive rights” agenda. Critics see the report as a thinly-veiled attempt to harness popular environmental concerns in service of population control.
The report, “Facing a Changing World: Women, Population and Climate [pdf],” asserts that achieving “universal access to reproductive health” would both contribute to declines in fertility and “help reduce green-house gas emissions in the long run.” It calls upon nations to “fully fund family planning services [read: abortion] and contraceptive supplies.”

Abortion: What will we do with all the unwanted kids? Poor babies, overpopulation, abuse, etc.
By Olivia Gans and Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D.
In the 1960s, we were told that there were too many people, not enough resources, unwanted and abused children, abused women, poverty, and a host of other social ills. When taken separately, these issues all appear to be independent problems, but we were told that they all had a common remedy.
Abortion was touted as the solution to all our social ills. In other words, we were told then that these social problems were best resolved by ending someone’s life. Twenty-five years after the legalization of abortion on demand – – and the deaths of over 36 million babies – – our opponents still continue to argue that abortion is the solution.
