WHAT THE CHURCH SAYS ABOUT POPULATION ISSUES:

 

1.     Pontifical Council for the Family (1994) document “Ethical and Pastoral Dimensions of Population Trends” says that the Church urges…

Correct knowledge of reality versus misinformation and media lies

True family policy versus contraception

Justice for woman versus a false concept of reproductive health

Don’t compromise the respect for the dignity of persons.

2.     In Exodus 1,7-22, the Egyptian pharaoh felt threatened by the growing number of Israelites in Egypt.  So, he prepared a 3-phase depopulation program:

 

o   Psychological oppression through economic warfare (Might makes right!)
o   Intimidation of moms via covert partial birth abortion (using midwives)
o   Intimidation of moms and violence against kids via infanticide (dumping all little boys into the river)

Is the evil Egyptian pharaoh upon us once again?
 

3.     Pope John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae (1995) document # 16 says that some justify the threats and attacks against life due to the demographic question (developed countries’ populations declining, increasing populations in developing countries). The Church recommends programmes for cultural development and the fair production and distribution of resources.   Instead, the first world enacts anti-birth policies!
