Exposing the
Overpopulation MYTH

One of the tools the Pro-abortion community uses to further their agenda is the OVER POPULATION MYTH. I can't count the number of times I've picked up a newspaper or magazine, or heard on the television (all too willing to propagate the lie) news, the "ever increasing population problem" and how we're "in the process of destroying 'mother earth' (Father God never said ANYTHING about a mother earth) because of all the people that are covering our planet."

When in fact, quite the opposite is true. Contrary to Planned Parenthood propaganda, world population growth trends are measurably declining and too much so for industrialized nations. In fact, since America is aborting 1.5 million of it's preborn children every year, if it weren't for immigration, our population would now be declining.

Planned Parenthood hosted a lecture a few years back in Sarasota, Florida, by Werner Fornos, who the paper hailed as an "internationally recognized leader in the field of population growth."

His topic for the evening was "Gaining People, Losing Ground". The fact that it was hosted by Planned Parenthood tells you what the solution was....... (as PP promotes in China - No choice for the Chinese) Government forced abortion.

Please get out your calculator, do the math, and you'll see just how under-populated our planet actually is:

In Ralph Epperson's book The Unseen Hand, he stated that the world had approximately 4 billion people (now closer to five). If you took the population of the world, split it up into families of four and gave them each a piece of land 50' x 53', the entire population of the planet would fit neatly into the state of Oregon.

Sounds amazing doesn't it?

In Mary Pride's book The Way Home, she calculated that you could give every person in the world 2,000 square feet (which is larger than most homes) and everyone would fit into the state of Texas.

Let's take this one step further:

Imagine yourself standing up in the middle of a circle about five feet in diameter. If the entire planet's population, stood in identical circles, they would ALL fit in the City of Jacksonville, Florida.

Impossible? Do the math!

Now I'm certainly not saying that we could survive like that. I'm just trying to make the point that we are NOT overpopulated. You see, the 'population explosion' myth is just one more attempt by the people that profit from abortion to convince the world that killing children in the womb is not only a right, but an enforcable must.

Starvation and hunger are NOT a result of over-population, but rather a result of tyrannical governments and mismanagement of rescources.

So the next time you hear someone parroting the "Over-Population" excuse for abortion...... get out your calculator, and set the record straight!
