MEDIA ADVISORY, July 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- Barry McLerran, producer of the just-released documentary "Demographic Bomb: Demography is Destiny" -- sequel to "Demographic Winter" -- said he was appalled by recent comments of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg that she viewed abortion as a form of population control.
In an interview published in yesterday's New York Times Magazine, Ginsburg said, "I had thought that at the time Roe was decided , there was concern about population growth and particularly the growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of."
McLerran commented: "Ginsburg is speaking of the poor here. Her thinking reflects the mindset of the liberal elite, which has long felt that getting rid of people is the easiest solution to pressing problems."
"This raises the ugly specter of the eugenics movement of the early 20th century, which sought to limit the growth of 'undesirable' or the ‘unfit,'" Mclerran added.
The "Demographic Winter" producer said it was no coincidence that the population-control movement had long targeted those in poverty and minorities in America and the populations of developing nations, including Africa..
McLerran noted: "It's rare for Planned Parenthood to open abortion clinics in wealthy, white neighborhoods. When was the last time the United Nations Population Division fretted about 'over-population' in Norway or Canada?"
Besides examining the economic consequences of the worldwide decline in birth rates, "The Demographic Bomb" exposes the role of the population-control movement in the coming population bust. The documentary reveals how organizations, institutions, governments and the United Nations manipulated and coerced families, evaded political accountability and violated basic human rights to achieve their agenda.
Said McLerran, "It's the story of how those with Ginsburg's mindset have worked to limit 'the growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of.'"
