The President and Population Growth
"Consider what a proactive U.S. global family planning effort might achieve:
+ By moderating population growth, there'd be some lessening of catastrophic food and water shortages afflicting less developed nations.
+ Global warming dangers wouldn't rise quite so rapidly.
+ The rights and life prospects of literally millions of women around the globe might be enhanced.
+ Significant worldwide totals of abortions and infant deaths could be avoided.
+ Democracy and stability would be promoted worldwide as fewer nations faced the turmoil easily triggered by high birth rates creating population "bumps" of poor and resentful youth.
+ And with a clear, unequivocal U.S. lead, other countries and the United Nations might expand their international family planning assistance."
