While America is sleeping, the population control machine is roaring across the globe, with Africa being a major focal point.
As an African-American woman, I remain deeply concerned that there remains a stain on human dignity that takes the form of reproductive genocide.
No matter how Planned Parenthood and the entire reproductive genocide network packages the message, abortion and manufactured contraceptives that are linked to breast cancer, cervical cancer, emotional trauma, and dead babies are all part of an inhumane crusade to advance the eugenicist creed.
Africa is the “Mother Land” to the human race, and to attack the wombs of the women of Africa and call it reproductive freedom is a heartless lie aimed at the advancement of the human race. Please read what two women at report about the Mega Population Control Conference in Addis Abba.
In this excerpt, Marie Smith, wife of U.S. Congressman Chris Smith, and head of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues writes: “The recent mega population control conference in Addis Abba, the 2013 International Conference on Family Planning: Full Access, Full Choice, was attended by over 3,000 individuals, and centered on the massive selling of a western ideology that views people as a problem and children as detriments to development to be avoided at all costs, including by destruction in abortion.
“This well-funded conference, with a core group of donors that included Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, United Nations Foundation, David and Lucille Packard Foundation, IPPF, Marie Stopes International, and William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, causes us to pause and reflect on the present-day struggle over respect for life and human dignity.
“African opposition to abortion is a vexation to pro-abortion NGOs which have to invest time, effort, and money in attempts to overcome the natural abhorrence and rejection of abortion in Africa — a concept of killing that is foreign to many Africans, including the woman in Uganda who once asked me, “What is this thing, abortion?”
Marie is joined by Obianuju Ekeocha, who wrote about turning up the heat of population control in Africa: “Last week, the heavy noose of population control was placed around the neck of Africa as the Gates Foundation hosted what they called the biggest family planning event in history, with about 3,000 attendees. The theme of The International Conference on Family Planning was ‘full access, full choice.’
“Africa is home to millions of people who have no access at all to basic education or even basic healthcare. Most of us know or have friends or family members who have no choice in their impoverished situations. And yet, a handful of people who have access to the greatest material wealth in the world come to us to tell us that what Africans need most is full access to sex without attachments. 
“Terms like LARC (long-acting reversible contraception) were thrown around a lot during this conference.  Emergency (abortifacient) contraception was put on a pedestal. Increasing access to abortion was also another major area of discussion. African leaders in attendance were highly encouraged to increase their national budget and schemes for birth control. Adolescent “friendly” contraception initiatives were also flaunted for the young and supposedly unmarried ones as some of the western speakers and officials described and labeled African societies as “judgmental” in considering sex outside of marriage.
This is heartbreaking for the entire continent of Africa!
She continued: “We are thirsty and they give us condoms! We are hungry and they offer us contraceptive pills! We are sick and they offer us the most modern techniques of abortion! We are naked and they lead us into the arms of sexual hedonism! We are imprisoned by poverty and they offer us sexual liberation!

“We weep not just for ourselves but for our children who will reap the devastating dividends of this extensive contraceptive project in the future.
“Ever since Melinda Gates unveiled and unleashed her extensive and expensive contraception project in Africa more than a year ago, millions of dollars have been spent across the continent leading to a reactive trend of events . . . and yet the lives of the African women have not improved at all.
"They may be having more vacuous and sterile sex which is free from conception on every day of the month and every month of the year but they are certainly not better fed, they are not healthier, and they are not even more educated than before Melinda’s project and therefore they are not more empowered. This project has failed the African women on every single note.
“African women deserve to stand proudly among the women of the world within the context of their own cultural sensitivities and values. They deserve to be recognized in the full esteem and stature of their radiant African femininity, beauty, and dignity that is firmly rooted in a vibrant culture of life and family.”
