“WORLD VISION” SUPPORTS POPULATION CONTROL

WASHINGTON, DC, Mar 2 (LSN) – World Vision, a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, calls itself “the largest privately funded, faith-based relief and development organization in the United States.” Despite its popularity and respected image, however, World Vision is generating criticism because of its support for population control.

A 1995 World Vision policy document called “Health and Healing,” reported that “World Vision will supplement governmental and other NGO [non-governmental organization] efforts in making modern family planning methods available to the couples. … These include copper IUDs, pills, and condoms.”

Furthermore, according to a recent article in WORLD, an American Christian magazine, an internal survey of the organization last year revealed that “all responding NOs [national offices] are engaged in some type of family planning-related activity, either as a straightforward family planning or reproductive health project or buried within child survival, maternal health, or women’s health activities.”

WORLD also notes that $55 million of World Vision’s $241 million revenue last year came from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) – a group notorious for promoting population control in the third world.
