The Shocking Stats About Rising Rate of Unsafe Abortions in Africa

    PolicyMic: Even as politicians fight to shut down Planned Parenthood and other family planning facilities across the U.S., many African women are fighting their own battles when it comes to sexual health and are often dying as a result. Thanks to a failing health care and education system in many nations, as well as a ubiquitous stigma against the use of contraceptives or abortions, an increasing number of women are turning to unsafe abortions across the continent to terminate unwanted pregnancies.

Population Control Goes Out With A Whimper

    Stefano Gennarini at Turtle Bay and Beyond: After decades of population control programs to avert a seemingly inevitable population Armageddon, the people and institutions that are primarily responsible for the false alarmism are on their way out. While some at the United Nations, UNFPA, USAID and the Obama administration still cling to their condoms and bad science under the pseudonym “family planning program” or the oxymoron “reproductive rights” ( it never has to do with women choosing how many children to have and always with USAID telling women not to have any more children), economists and demographers are all agreed that the problem the world is facing is population aging and population decline – caused by human beings. Unfortunately, it will takes decades, and maybe centuries to re-trace the trail of misery and ignorance they have left.

Would Bombing Syria Be a ‘Just War’? | Robert George at WSJ

    Robert George at Wall Street Journal (via Google): Elshtain recognized, however—as have just-war theorists going back to St. Augustine through the modern popes—that even when force is used in a just cause there are additional requirements that must be met. Critically in the current debate, these include the likelihood of improving, and not worsening, the situation for the people of Syria and other potential victims of undeterred tyrants or violent extremists. Another concern is “proportionality”—the requirement that the collateral damage inevitably caused by the use of force not be so great as to render the use of force disproportionate and unfair to the innocent.

Two Child Policy in China: Too Little Too Late?

    C-FAM: With its announcement of possible reforms, China has implicitly admitted its forty year-old one child per-family policy has been a failure. The rules led to draconian abuses. There were an estimated 336 million abortions, including forced abortions and sterilizations at the hands of a powerful and intrusive family planning establishment controlling the most intimate aspects of Chinese life.
