To the editor:
The mission of Citizens Concerned with Human Life of Mifflin-Juniata Inc. is to secure protection for innocent human life from conception until natural death through effective education. The Sentinel is an excellent source of education, we try to emulate their fine educational thrust in the community.
Our efforts are aimed at the community to have them understand what evils exist in certain sections of society including government to control and eliminate human life. Such methods as abortion (murder), embryo stem cell research (more murder), euthanasia (more murder), contraception (again more murder) and sterilization are fostered by secular nonbelievers. I say nonbelievers because while they use the phrase, "God bless America" they continue to endorse Planned Parenthood's abortions. Between 1987 and 2008, Planned Parenthood has received $3.9 billion in federal taxpayer funds.
In Washington, D.C., President Obama appointed John Holdren as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Holdren is the official population expert and was tapped by President Obama in 2009.
In an article by Michael Bastasch of "The Daily Caller" on Sept. 4 he states:
"The [London] Guardian reports that Holdren regularly meets with top scientists from other countries to discuss population control." Bastasch continues, "Holdren has previously stated that the United States and the rest of the world have too many people, a population bomb that technology can't defuse." Dr. Holdren has advocated a wide array of despicable policies, such as mandatory population control.
Paul Ehrlich, an associate of Holdren, states "We are going to move to a no-growth [economy]," and now whether we do it intelligently through the government by planning as rapidly as possible is the question."
Holdren was heavily criticized after being tapped by President Obama in 2009 for being an author in a textbook that floated such ideas as forced abortions, putting sterilants in the drinking water and government-mandated family planning. We now can add murder by population control to Planned Parenthood in Washington's endorsements.
What's next from Washington?
There is an organization called "Population Connection" and they work to ensure that every woman around the world who wants to delay or end childbearing has access to the health services and contraceptive supplies she needs in order to do so.
Notice "end childbearing" (murder) has access to the health services and contraceptive supplies (murder).
What is worse is that Washington and these other organization are playing God, but the Bible doesn't say anything about population control. Instead, humans are told to "be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:22, 28). Psalm 127:3-5 tells us that children are a heritage from the Lord and that the fruit of the womb is a reward from Him.
It has been said that: If all the people on Earth could fit in Texas, imagine all the room people would have if they spread out over the entire United States. This would allow plenty of living space plus access to water, arable land, and roads and other infrastructure.
Internationally since 1979, the United Nations, (UNFPA), has been the chief apologist and cheerleader for China's coercive one-child-per-couple policy. Congressional Republicans and Republican Presidents have been successful in preventing the UNFPA from receiving U.S. funding. The exact opposite for Democrats, who continue to fund (UNFPA) and support abortion funding worldwide.
Population control is called Malthusianism and is primarily derived from the political/economic thought of the Rev. Thomas Robert Malthus, as laid out initially in his 1798 writings, An "Essay on the Principle of Population," It has been around a long time and such abominations as Adolph (Nazi Germany) Hitler, Benito (Fascist Italy) Mussolini, Margaret (Planned Parenthood) Sanger endorsed it.
Margaret Sanger, through Planned Parenthood, advocated abortions on Afro-Americans in order to eliminate what she called "socially undesirable people." Margaret Sanger, who lived from 1883 to 1966, said, "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
This is the foundation of Planned Parenthood and the President of the United States supports and endorses.
We continue to fight this scourge with education and hope people will come and pray with us at the Life Chain, Oct. 6, 1 p.m. at the Old Court House.
This is not a demonstration but a time together for the ones who have been affected and pray for them.
