Pope Francis has called for a meeting of world leaders and religious figure heads to discuss advancing New World Order policies such as population reduction and a one-world government.
The Pontifical Academy of Science (PAS) announced the conference has been scheduled to be held November 2-4 at the Vatican.
PAS claims the meeting has been arranged to discuss a range of topics aimed at tackling “climate change” and “our responsibility” for the planet by brainstorming ways of reducing the world’s population.
The meeting has been title: “Health of People, Health of Planet and Our Responsibility: Climate Change, Air Pollution, and Health”.
A look at the attendees set to sit on the panel shows major advocates of a one world government, single bank and global currency, and proponents of depopulation and single child family policies.
The conference’s title obscures the questionable personal ideologies and professional objectives of a number of its slated participants.
Professor John Schellnhuber
John Schellnhuber is founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and chair of the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU). He is considered one of the world’s leading climate scientists and one of the strongest advocates of the theory that the earth is undergoing catastrophic global warming.
Schellnhuber is also known for his advocacy of a one-world government. In order to avoid his catastrophic predictions for unchecked climate change, Schellnhuber proposes the need for indispensable forms of world governance – or in his own words, a “global democratic society” – to be organized within the framework of the United Nations.
Schellnhuber says in his 2013 article “Expanding the Democracy Universe” that “global democracy might be organized around three core activities, namely (i) an Earth Constitution; (ii) a Global Council; and (iii) a Planetary Court.”Schellnhuber has little patience for those who do not accept his scientific theories and conclusions. In a May 2014 interview with musician Pierre Baigorry, Schellnhuber claimed that sometimes politicians have to take citizens to task “with coercion” to overcome their own resistance to change.
Sir Partha Dasgupta
Dasgupta is a proponent of population control, lauding China’s Human Development Index despite that country’s brutal “family planning” policy. He is also a patron of Population Matters, formerly known as the Optimum Population Trust, that lobbies for a “sustainable population size,” including the “reversing of population growth” in many countries.
Dasgupta said, “We need to unravel the processes that led to the ills we are now facing. That is why the Vatican symposia involve natural and social scientists, as well as scholars from the humanities. That the symposia are being held at the Papal Academy is also symbolic. It shows that the ancient hostility between science and the church, at least on the issue of preserving Earth’s services, has been quelled.”Peter RavenPeter Raven is a biologist who specializes in plants, butterflies, and evolution. At the last PAS symposium, Raven said, “We need at some point to have a limited number of people, which is why Pope Francis and his three most recent predecessors have always argued that you should not have more children than you can bring up properly.”Raven was incorrect to claim that the three popes before Pope Francis agree with him on the “need at some point to have a limited number of people” so they can be raised “properly”.
Columbia University’s Jeffery Sachs, who co-hosted the Vatican’s 2015 conference on climate change, believes that abortion is a legitimate way to reduce the population.
Sachs made a plea for legalizing abortion as a cost-effective way to eliminate “unwanted children” when contraception fails in his 2008 book Commonwealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet.
He describes abortion as a “lower-risk and lower-cost option” than bringing a new human life to the world.
He also wrote that the “legalization of abortion reduces a country’s total fertility rate significantly, by as much as half a child on average,” and criticized former U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush for denying groups that provide and promote abortion any U.S. funding through the Mexico City Policy.
Sachs is listed as an author of the background note to a declaration adopted by scientists and religious leaders at the 2015 Vatican conference that validated the theory that human activity is changing the Earth’s climate. Unlike the declaration, the background note with a Vatican emblem at the head speaks of the world’s population as a problem.U.S. politicians participating at the upcoming Vatican conference
A few political figures from the United States will also participate.
All hail from California:
U.S. Congressman Scott Peters; state Senator Kevin de León, President pro Tempore of the California State Senate; and California Gov. Jerry Brown, who will deliver a keynote address on the closing day of the event.
All three are strong supporters of Planned Parenthood.Archbishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo
Presiding over the event will be the head of the Pontifical Academy of Science, Archbishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo.
Sorondo has an anti-capitalist worldview and is opposed to traditional Church doctrine.
Sorondo’s connection to population control elites is clear, not only from his bringing them to the Vatican but also they’re feting him and having him sit on the Leadership Council of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, an organization launched by then-U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.
On the leadership council, alongside Sorondo, are Sachs and Ted Turner, two of the best-known promoters of coercive population control in the world. Turner held an event at the posh Harvard Club in New York City to celebrate Sorondo’s work on Sept. 25, 2015.
At the Biological Extinction Symposium, the Archbishop’s confounding statements regarding procreation were disconnected from Church principles. He said, “Many times, we don’t know exactly what is the doctrine of the Church.
”Past performance indicative of future behavior?
The last few PAS conferences have caused pro-life critics to point out that no strong orthodox Catholic voices have been present, and so views antithetical to church doctrine have been categorically asserted without anyone presenting Catholic corrections to their statements.
At one, Archbishop Sorondo himself promoted reducing family sizes, saying that “when you have education” women will only have one or two children instead of seven. One of the conference experts replied that “without having access to birth control, she will have more children than she wants.”
“And that’s why it is not just education alone, it is a combination of education and birth control that brings fertility down.”Nobody present at the conference contradicted him.
Pope Francis Calls for One-Child Policy Laws to be Introduced Globally
The Pope has called for tough new laws to be introduced worldwide that will restrict families to just having one child in a bid to make the New World Order “more sustainable”.
The plans for the draconian new laws were revealed by a panelist at a Vatican-run workshop on “how to save the natural world” in which the agenda for family limits was unveiled because “Pope Francis has urged us to have fewer children to make the world more sustainable.
“Setting legal restriction on births is similar to China’s one-child policy that ran from 1979 to 2015 and was designed to slow down the country’s population growth.The policy was fairly widely accepted within China but faced harsh criticism from other nations who felt it went against citizens human rights.The laws were updated in 2016 to a two-child policy following pressure from human rights groups.
Through the 1980s, as the one-child policy came into force, parents who desired a son but had a daughter often failed to report or delayed reporting female births to the authorities.
Some parents may have offered up their daughters for formal or informal adoption.
According to a report by the National Population and Family Planning Commission, the one-child policy has resulted in a massively unbalanced ratio of men to women in China.
It’s estimated that there will be 30 million more men than women in 2020, potentially leading to social instability and courtship-motivated emigration.The Vatican seems undeterred by the results in China though as it hopes to push this new agenda.
Despite the Pope’s want to reduce birth rates, the Catholic Church still remains defiant that the use of birth control is a “grave sin”.
The Vatican believes that the introduction of new legal restrictions will force people to “show more restraint” when it comes to family planning.
This solution to securing the world’s sustainability was presented by botanist and environmentalist Peter Raven during a press conference that concluded the “Biological Extinction” workshop that took place at the Vatican.
Greg Burke, director of the Holy See Press Office, moderated a panel, which included Raven, President of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS), Werner Arber, University of Cambridge Professor Emeritus of Economics Partha Dasgupta, and PAS Chancellor Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo. “We do not endorse any of the artificial birth control [methods] that the Church does not endorse,” said Raven.
LSN reports: The Church condemns every method of artificial birth control.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “every action which, whether in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible is intrinsically evil” since it destroys the unitive and procreative integrity of the marital act.
The Church teaches that a married couple who wishes to postpone pregnancy for a “grave” reason may do so by not engaging in the marital act during the fertile period. According to Raven, the central element of the solution for “overpopulation” is that “we need a more limited number of people in the world.
“In addition, “the problem is one of inequality,” where the rich use more of the world’s resources than the poor.
“In the framework of social justice worldwide we need to find ways for natural resources to be distributed on the basis of compassion and love. We hope for support in our ongoing support for our endeavor to develop sustainability,” he said.
All four on the panel concurred that the survival of the planet is tightly linked to the number of people on the planet.
The Biological Extinction workshop drew particular controversy because it featured a paper by notorious pro-abortion population control advocate Dr. Paul Ehrlich.
At the event, Ehrlich, and co-author Dasgupta said that the Catholic teaching of “responsible parenthood” in determining family size has “result[ed] in collective failure” in reducing the world’s population.
The authors suggested that one way to stop the exhaustion of “humanity’s natural capital” is by imposing a system of “taxes and regulations” that would help modify “social norms of behavior.”
Before the conference, Ehrlich, who has defended forced abortion and mass forced sterilization as legitimate means to control the world’s population, advocated in an interview with The Guardian for cutting the world’s population by 6 billion people to bring it down to 1 billion.
In the paper’s words, he said doing so would have an “overall pro-life effect.” The paper indicated he believed this could “sustain much more human lives in the long term compared with our current uncontrolled growth and the prospect of sudden collapse.”
When the panelists at the Vatican press conference were asked if any scientists were invited to the conference who held an alternative view on the world’s population, Bishop Sorondo replied: “You can see the papers since everything was published on the website, the texts, and the discussions.”
Sorondo said that while “there were different opinions on population” during the conference’s discussions, the participants reached two conclusions: “That the carbonization (pollution) of the air is not caused by the number of human beings, but by the activity of humans who use the materials at hand”
“In order to have an integral environment, biodiversity must be conserved – [and] that also depends on human activity.”
Dasgupta, Ehrlich’s co-author, said during the panel that the number of humans on the planet is not sustainable. He added that humans must arrive at a point where their numbers are determined by how “the Earth can replenish herself.”
When asked how many people would be ideal for the planet, Dasgupta answered: “We should not calculate that. The number of humans depends on standards of living or quality of life.
It depends on the total demand that we make on Mother Nature. If humans were not here there would be other factors.
“While leaving the question essentially unanswered, Dasgupta presented the solution of “working backwards,” stating that “we have to figure out the human impact on Mother Nature on an annual basis: If the impact grows, we will be concerned. If the impact is reduced, then mother nature will replenish.”
He suggested that the “best step forward” to begin curbing “population growth” would be with a “focus on the family and education.”He did not clarify what such “education” might entail.
