WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept 28 (LSN) – Zenit news service reported last week that after reviewing the abuses of the population program of the Fujimori government in Peru, the US House of Representatives passed a resolution aimed at ending the use of US funds to support coercive population control programs.  Zenit reports that the amendment stipulates that “there will be no prizes for those health officers who carry out a targeted number of sterilizations or publicize artificial methods of birth control.” The new rules prohibit population strategies with “numerical targets” and “incentives.” Further discrimination against those who choose not to submit to the programs is forbidden.
