Is There A Population Problem? Or Is There a Negative Growth Problem?

Human Rights Catastrophes of the Sexual Revolution: Population Control and Demographic Winter

There is no overpopulation problem. The people in every industrial country in the world are not having enough children to even replace themselves. The birth rate is declining in most of the rest of the world as well. My interview with journalist Don Feder answers these important questions.

Does overpopulation cause poverty or pollution? Why is under-population a bigger problem than over-population? What do you say to people who criticize you for having more than two children?

Who is behind the population hysteria? What human rights abuses are being committed in the name of solving the "population problem?"

Most importantly, what can you do about all this? Watch this episode of the Dr. J Show to find out!

China Is Lying to Us...and the Elites Help Them!

Steven W. Mosher is an internationally recognized author and the foremost Western authority on China and on population issues, as well as an acclaimed and sought-after speaker. He has worked tirelessly since 1979 to fight coercive population control programs and has helped hundreds of thousands of women and families worldwide.

In 1979, Steven was the first American social scientist to visit mainland China. He was invited there by the Chinese Communist government, where he had access to government documents and actually witnessed women being forced to have abortions under the “one-child policy:” killing preborns in the seventh, eighth, and ninth month of pregnancy. Steven was a pro-choice atheist at the time, but witnessing these traumatic abortions led him to reconsider his convictions and to eventually become a practicing, pro-life Roman Catholic.

Steven has appeared numerous times before Congress as an expert in world population, China, and human rights abuses. He has also made TV appearances on Good Morning America, 60 Minutes, The Today Show, 20/20, FOX and CNN news, as well as being a regular guest on talk radio shows across the nation. He is also the author of the best-selling A Mother’s Ordeal: One Woman’s Fight Against China’s One-Child Policy. Among his many other books are Population Control and Bully of Asia: Why 'China's Dream' is the New Threat to World Order.

Articles by Steve have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Reader’s Digest, The New Republic, The Washington Post, National Review, Reason, The Asian Wall Street Journal, Freedom Review, Linacre Quarterly, Catholic World Report, Human Life Review, First Things, and countless other publications.

Steven Mosher lives in Virginia with his wife, Vera, and their nine children.
