ADDOS ABABA, March 24, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The United Nation’s emergencies Unit for Ethiopia (EUE) has called for pressure tactics for depopulation in Ethiopia.  Rather than providing food aid, the EUE is suggesting that a “reward and punishment” system should be implemented to implement ‘family planning’.

  African media quote the EUE report as saying, “If Ethiopia wants to become less dependent on foreign food aid, all appropriate means should be explored to stop the ongoing population explosion.”“The dissemination of family planning methods, possibly linked with relief operations, must be stepped up,” it said. “Family planning education should be pursued more aggressively and it might be worth contemplating how far a system of reward and punishment could help implement family planning strategies.”
