NEW YORK, Sept 2 (LSN) – Today the United Nations Population Fund released its 1998 State of The World Population report in which they called for greater access to reproductive health care (abortion) for adolescents. The report uses over-population fear tactics to foster the absurd notion that massive population control is needed to avoid world financial, food and security crises. Further, the report calls urges nations to make “sexual and reproductive health” education for young people a priority of education reform. All regions objecting to this UN sponsored pro-abortion sex-ed are condemned in the report as having “negative attitudes and prejudices” and of refusing to “help adolescents.”  For an excellent rebuttal to the population control mythology see Julian Simon’s Ultimate Resource II at:
