Whether people who support the availability of elective abortion do so for eugenic purposes or to allow for a disordered expression of sexuality, one of the myths generally relied upon is that the planet is running out of room and resources. It’s one reason why religious people who believe God is good and provides plenty for us in this world tend to be more pro-life. It’s also why people who do not believe in a good God, or in a God at all, tend to be pro-abortion.
As pro-life advocates, we should be aware of a tremendous resource in a group known as the Population Resource Institute. There, Steven Mosher there tells how the myth of overpopulation has been debunked repeatedly over the last 200 years. The eugenic desire to control the population of certain people groups is also why many of the world’s governments repeatedly tell their citizens that we are running out of resources, especially fuel and water.
There are indeed grave injustices in land use planning, in the availability and taxation of resources, and in the merging of governments and businesses to regulate the flow of resources and restrict free markets. One example of this can be seen in Hitler’s Germany before World War II. Few people today remember or will admit remembering that our nation’s press spoke in glowing terms of Mister Hitler’s so-called efficiencies in resource management in the merging of business with state interests.
All this is to simply say, with a free and open throated enthusiasm, “God is good, and He has provided plenty for all his children on His creation, the earth. When you visit Population Resource Institute on the web at P-O-P.org, you will find ample evidence that we actually need more people, not less and that being pro-life makes incredible sense.
