From Malthus to the UNFPA: A Devastating Survey of the Eugenics/Population Control
Movement by a Brilliant Young Scholar

The Inherent Racism of Population Control, by Paul Jalsevac
Reviewed by John Mallon

It isn't often I review an electronic book, (a book in the pdf file format available on the Internet, but this is a subject which is not politically correct but which every Catholic should be informed about.

Having done some work in this area myself, I am particularly impressed with this book, the title of which is The Inherent Racism of Population Control, by a brilliant young man, Paul Jalsevac. Paul's father, Steve, is involved in the LifeSite news agency in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Paul became interested in the topic after attending a UN conference in March of 2000 to lobby and help the Pro-life, pro-family alliance coordinated by the Catholic family and Human Rights Institute (C-Fam). At the time he was just out of high school. His experience inspired him to study the population control issue further. En route to another UN conference he was very nearly killed in a car accident. Thankfully he recovered. Clearly there was work for him to do.

The population control/eugenics movement, one of the most evil movements on the face of the earth is one of the "hidden" pro-life issues, which has been around in some form since the end of the 18th century when Anglican clergyman Thomas Malthus wrote his bizarre tract Essay on the Principle of Population (1798) to the present where it is promoted through the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

Of course the ideas have been "sanitized" for the modern world, but strong supporters from the beginning of the 20th century include Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, and Adolph Hitler. After the horrors of the Thrid Reich became public supporters, like Sanger began backtracking on eugenics (literally, "good birth), but continued with the control of population, especially the poor, who were considered a burden to the more privileged classes. Malthus actually discouraged programs to aid the poor, thinking it would be better to let them "die off." Charles Darwin claimed that Malthus influenced is theory of natural selection.

Paul's book was originally written as his senior thesis at Christendom College. It was so brilliant that it has been published online by LifeSiteNews. The book is available as a pdf file via free download. 1 We hope a publisher may soon pick up on it to publish as a hard copy book.

He traces the history of our current culture of death, (eugenics/population control/birth control/abortion) from Thomas Malthus to Margaret Sanger to Hitler to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which Senator John Kerry had promised to resume supporting had he been elected US president. This entire movement is the sworn enemy of the Catholic Church.

It should come as no surprise that the very people who falsely attack the Catholic Church for the alleged "silence" of the German bishops and Pius XII against Hitler are the people promoting population control, contraception and abortion throughout today's world.

The spread of birth control, sterilization and the attempt to legitimize abortion lives on today in the form of the UNFPA. In fact, Jalsevac shows that Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger envisioned something akin to today's UNFPA long before the UN became a reality. "Most notable" Jalsevac says, "was her 'Plan for Peace' in which she advocated the creation of a Population Congress to study and act upon "population problems."

Jalsevac then unearths the following quote from Sanger written in her publication The Birth Control Review outlining a plan to rid societies of those she deems "undesirable."

Jalsevac explains, "As part of her solution to these 'problems' she advocated a plan for segregating those considered unfit that involved the establishment of institutions resembling re-education or concentration camps." Sanger explained her plan saying,

"The first step would thus be to control the intake and output of morons, mental defectives, epileptics.

"The second step would be to take an inventory of the secondary group such as illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals prostitutes, dope fiends; classify them in special departments under government medical protection, and segregate them on farms and open spaces as long as necessary for the strengthening of moral conduct.

"With the future safeguarded from hereditary taints, with five million mental and moral degenerates segregated, with ten million women and ten million children receiving adequate care, [likely forced sterilization or at least enforced use of birth control] we could then turn our attention to the basic needs for international peace." 2

By the time it was clear what the Nazis were doing with their "undesirable" people Sanger realized she had to backtrack. She wasn't the only one. The very mention of eugenics (literally "good birth") sounds quaint today, as though it was entirely discredited after the horrors of the Nazi regime. Yet there are still those who seek to stand in judgment of who is worthy to be born--or not.

On page 49 Jalsevac demonstrates the UN's interest in this agenda almost from the very beginning with an extraordinary 1948 statement from "Sir Julian Huxley, the President of the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) showed how much Malthusianism had invaded the ranks of U.N. leaders when he explained that:

"Thus, even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy of controlled human breeding will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much is unthinkable may at least become thinkable." 3.

This chilling quote demonstrates that the Nazi experience made the pursuit of eugenics "politically and psychologically impossible" in the postwar period it was still on the mind of the elites, who, like the devil after failing to tempt Jesus in the desert, withdrew to "await another opportunity." That opportunity is now with us disguised as "sexual and reproductive health."

Jalsevac's book gives great hope of new generation coming up that understands the profound and diabolical forces facing the world today. This book sheds light on this very dark and little understood darkness.
