    - Nigeria on the list...

    The charge: millions sterilised
    to meet U.S. political objectives


    For the discussion and informational exchange of ideas, research, articles, and other resources pertaining to the questions of USA intelligence agency presence in the international narcotics trade. List will be lightly moderated. Please keep on...

    A U.S.-sponsored program that resulted in the sterilisation of
    nearly half of Brazil's women has prompted a formal
    congressional inquiry, sponsored by more than 165 legislators from
    political party that is represented in the Brazilian
    legislature. The investigation was initiated after information about
    secret U.S. National Security Council memorandum on American
    population control objectives in developing countries was published
    in the Jornal de Brasilia, Hova do Povo (Rio de Janeiro),
    Jornal do Brasil, and other major newspapers in early May.

    That U.S. foreign policy document, officially known as National
    Security Study Memorandum 200 or NSSM 200, detailed a plan to
    target thirteen large de- veloping nations with intensive
    efforts to promote population "policies'' that would allow the U.S.
    to run massive birth control and sterilisation projects in those

    Brazil, the study said, was placed on the list of thirteen
    target nations because it "clearly dominates the continent [South
    America] demographically,'' and its population was projected to
    equal that of the United States by the turn of the century.
    This, said the report which was jointly prepared for the National
    Security Council (NSC) in 1974 by the Central Intelligence
    Agency (CIA), the Departments of State and Defence (DOD), and the
    Agency for International Development (USAID), suggests "a
    growing power status for Brazil in Latin America and on the world
    scene over the next 25 years.''

    The NSC report listed twelve other nations whose growth could
    give them increased political influence, and which were also to
    be targeted under the international population program. Those
    are: Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Pakistan, Indonesia, Turkey,
    Bangladesh, India, Thailand, the Philippines, Mexico and Colombia.

    The document, which is over 200 pages in length, was written
    after a proposed "world population plan of action'' was denounced
    by large numbers of African and Latin America nations, by the
    Vatican, and by the entire socialist bloc (with the exception of
    Romania), during a UN population conference held in Bucharest
    in 1974.

    The formerly-classified strategy document was approved as an
    integral part of American foreign policy in 1975 by Brent
    Scowcroft, who served as then- President Gerald Ford's security
    advisor. He occupies the same office today under George Bush.

    Reports about the document, as well as about the Brazilian
    inquiry, have since appeared in every part of Brazil and throughout
    Central and South America.

    Brazil's Ministry of Health, which had begun an investigation
    into the sterilisation program even before the American
    population strategy documents were disclosed, has revealed that 44
    percent of all Brazilian women between the ages of 14 and 55 have
    been permanently sterilised. The older women apparently had the
    operation done when the program started, nearly two decades
    ago. News reports charge that many of these women underwent the
    operation without their knowledge or consent.

    Benedita da Silva of the Workers Party (PT), who represents the
    residents of impoverished sections of Rio de Janeiro known as
    favelas, will head the legislative investigation. According to
    some reports, as many as 90 percent of all Brazilian women of
    African descent have been sterilised. If true, this would nearly
    eliminate future generations of black people in Latin America's
    largest nation. Brazil's black population is reported to be
    second in size only to Nigeria's. At least half of Brazil's 154
    million people are believed to be of African ancestry.

    The sterilisation program in Brazil, like those just now
    beginning in dozens of African nations, started as a relatively
    small, "voluntary'' family planning campaign, which publicly
    stressed spacing children rather than reducing population growth. It
    quickly and quietly escalated, however, taking advantage of
    unfavorable economic conditions -- themselves largely imposed
    through the policies of the U.S. and other developed countries -- to
    press for limitations in family size.

    The massive sterilisation activities were mainly orchestrated
    by BEMFAM, the Brazilian affiliate of the London-based
    International Planned Parenthood Federation, according to news

    Several private U.S. population contractors, operating with
    funds from the U.S. Agency for International Development, are also
    involved. These include the Pathfinder Fund, the Johns Hopkins
    University Population Communication Services project, Family
    Health International, the John Snow "Enterprise'' program, the
    Program for the Introduction and Adaptation of Contraceptive
    Technology (PIACT), and the Association for Voluntary Surgical
    Contraceptive. All have current activities both in Brazil and in
    numerous African nations. Some of the Brazilian programs funded
    through these groups are subcontracted to BEMFAM, while other
    projects are run by the USAID contractors through paid contacts
    at Brazilian universities, family planning clinics, firms, and

    In recent years, Brazilian officials have begun to raise
    objections to the level of population activities in their country. A
    large shipment of condoms from USAID was held up in customs for
    over a year and then seized by Brazilian agents as contraband,
    according to a report released in late 1989 by the Office of
    the Inspector General at USAID. The same report advised that
    Brazilian authorities had complained that the level of U.S.
    population assistance had become "overwhelming and unnecessary.''

    Last summer, health officials began the investigation that
    showed the incredibly high sterilisation rate. That information
    coincided with the revelations about U.S. intentions to curb
    births in developing countries.

    Aside from advocating a strategy to contain the political
    influence of large and rapidly growing developing countries, the
    document stressed the need to maintain orderly, pro-U.S.
    leadership in countries that supply "strategic and critical''
    needed for normal U.S. military and industrial operations. The
    NSC report stated that the U.S. "will require large and
    increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less
    developed countries. That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interest in
    the political, economic, and social stability of the supplying
    countries. Wherever a lessening of population pressures through
    reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such
    stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies
    to the economic interests of the United States.''

    It advised, too, that the relatively young populations
    characteristic of societies with high birthrates give momentum to
    nationalist movements because young people can more easily be
    persuaded to attack foreign investments and other influences seen as

    The document also detailed a strategy for persuading leaders in
    the developing world to cooperate with the population program,
    urging that various agencies of the United Nations, the U.S.
    Information Agency, the World Bank, and USAID collaborate with
    other industrial country donors to influence leaders of targeted
    "LDCs'' [less-developed countries]. "We should give higher
    priorities in our information programs world-wide for this area
    [population control] and consider expansion of collaborative
    arrangements with multilateral institutions in population education
    programs,'' it said.

    It warned, however, that there was a "danger that some LDC
    leaders will see developed country pressures for family planning as
    a form of economic or racial imperialism; this could well
    create a serious backlash.'' The U.S., it added, "can help to
    minimise charges of an imperialist motivation behind its support of
    population activities by repeatedly asserting that such support
    derives from a concern with (a) the right of the individual to
    determine freely and responsibly their number and spacing of
    children ... and (b) the fundamental social and economic
    development of poor countries.'' It also recommended that U.S.
    service and diplomatic personnel "be alert to opportunities for
    expanding our assistance efforts and for demonstrating to their
    leaders the consequences of rapid population growth and the
    benefits of actions to reduce fertility.''

    The secret document also noted that it is "vital'' that
    officials avoid giving the impression of "an industrialised country
    policy to keep their strength down'' because this could "create a
    serious backlash adverse to the cause of population

    The study also suggested that, where diplomatic initiatives
    fail to persuade leaders their populations should be reduced,
    "mandatory programs may be needed and ... we should be considering
    these possibilities now.'' Specific forms of coercion proposed
    in the study were limited to food rationing and "taking account
    of family planning performance'' in foreign assistance

    The document further advised that in countries where leaders
    had raised strong objections to population control plans --
    specifically including Brazil, Nigeria, and Ethiopia -- population
    funds "would have to come from other donors and/or from private
    and international organisations,'' although these groups would
    receive contributions from USAID. In other words, at least in
    those countries, the U.S. planned to conceal its funding of such
    "private'' population activities.

    Nations in Asia and Latin America took most of the pressure in
    the early 1970s, largely because African leaders were strongly
    opposed to population control. But by the early 1980s, the
    World Bank had revised its guidelines for funding consumable
    supplies, and began promoting population reduction projects as an
    integral part of development loans in Africa and as a condition
    for credit.

    Today, most African nations have adopted formal policies that
    state birthrates are "too high.'' While such official statements
    do not necessarily translate into actions, they nonetheless
    open the door to further diplomatic maneuvers and pressure tactics
    by foreign governments and international lending agencies.
    Eventually, such pressure is intended to bring about the kind of
    coercive "family planning'' programs in Africa were enacted in
    India (and which are credited, at least in part, with the 1984
    assassination of Indira Gandhi) and those now under investigation
    in Brazil.

    Still, there are several African nations that have not yet even
    produced these formal policy statements: Mozambique, Somalia,
    Angola, Tchad, Congo, Gabon, Libya, Sudan, Namibia, Benin,
    Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Guinee, Mali, Mauritania and Togo among
    them. And in others, there are strict rules that make such
    statements unenforceable by Western governments and their private
    intermediaries; sterilisation, for example, is a criminal
    offense in Ethiopia, according to a study of national policies done
    by the UN several years ago.

    The action of Brazil's legislature is an example of an
    effective response that comes too late. Already about 25 million
    Brazilian women have permanently, and, in many cases unwillingly,
    been deprived of the capacity to bear children.

    Said Heraclio Salles, one of Brazil's most respected
    journalists and colum- nists: "They have given and are giving
    millions of
    women procedures that do not differ in their final objectives
    from those employed by the nazis under the Hitler regime to
    affect the removal of the Jewish population.''

    COPYRIGHT U.S.A. 1991


    A U.S. $67 million program, funded by USAID and implemented by
    the Pathfinder Fund, includes (among scores of others) a
    "PAMPA'' project to implement "psycho-social assistance'' with
    emphasis on "family planning'' in Sao Paulo, Brazil; a joint
    Pathfinder- BEMFAM program to survey adult attitudes on birth control

    and to sponsor a Latin American population conference; and a
    program to "continue participation in the shaping of the national
    discussion on population issues'' with an emphasis on the
    impact of such discussions on Brazil's new Constitution. In Nigeria,
    Pathfinder has an even larger number of current activities,
    including the training of medical personnel to perform birth
    control procedures in just about every state, as well as projects to
    "improve knowledge, attitude and practice of family planning''
    among both rural and urban women. It funneled approximately $2
    million from USAID into a national family planning campaign in
    Zimbabwe between 1987 and 1990, and has contributed large
    amounts of money to similar projects in Kenya and Tanzania, with
    smaller activities in several other African nations. The
    Association for Voluntary Surgical Contraception (formerly Assn. for
    Voluntary Sterilisation) conducts activities primarily to promote
    methods that cause permanent infertility. It has U.S. $80
    million in AID contracts, with numerous activities both in Brazil
    and Nigeria; it has made several recent payments to universities,
    hospitals and family planning associations in Ghana, Kenya,
    Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Malawi, Burundi,
    Zaire, Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone. The PIACT program funds
    publications and media projects, as well as contraceptive
    distribution networks in Brazil. It conducts similar activities in
    a dozen African states.

    This goes along with the fact that many orphanges in the USA do experiments on the kids,and they are government sanctioned.Especially those oprhans that have HIV/AIDS and other dis-eases that man played a role in creating.

    I was somewhat of a father figure to an orphan once even though I was still young,he was much younger than me( I knew him from the time he was 6-9 years old),he once told me that he would rather be around me and my younger brother than anyone else,even his own adopted parents. I have not seen the kid since he was adopted into another family.

    Just needed to get that off my chest,I was told a while ago that the boy died in another home.
