in 1974, the eugenicist Henry Kissinger (National Security Advisor at the time) published National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests (NSSM200). this study was adopted as official U.S. policy in 1975. as the title implies, the report discusses the need for population control in developing countries. the main form of “population control” endorsed is, of course, abortion.
Kissinger supported an interesting method of encouraging countries to engage in abortion, as seen in part 2 of the study:
Since population growth is a major determinant of increases in food demand, allocation of scarce PL 480 resources should take account of what steps a country is taking in population control as well as food production. In these sensitive relationships, however, it is important in style as well as substance to avoid the appearance of coercion.
in case you missed it, let me spell that out for you: we should give preferential treatment with regards to food and aid to countries which are committed to using abortion as a method of population control. but, we should be sneaky about it!
it is important to note that the US refuses to rescind this policy, even after being called upon to do so ever since the report was made public in the early 90s. if something seems familiar about this, it’s probably because one of Obama’s first moves in office was to reinforce this policy of providing aid to abortion-happy African countries.
and if you still think this is all in the past, I refer you to a chilling statement made by our current National Security Advisor, James Jones to the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations): “As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger”.
hopefully this also gives some insight into why violent wars are perpetuated by the US. they are not meant to be won, only sustained, for the optimal amount of death and financial gain.
