Why Does The U.S. Government Have An ‘Office Of Population Affairs’?

Population-Control-Public-Domain-300x300 [1]

Did you know that the federal government has an “Office of Population Affairs”?  I didn’t realize this either until someone sent me a link to their website [2].  The Office of Population Affairs operates under the umbrella of the Department of Health & Human Services, and it might as well be called “The Office of Population Control” because almost everything on the website is about controlling or reducing the size of the population.  On the site you can find information and resources about abortion, female sterilization, male sterilization and a vast array of contraceptive choices.  There is even a search engine where you can find a local “family planning clinic” where you can get rid of any “unintended pregnancy” that may be bothering you.  Frankly, it sickens me to think that my tax dollars are being used to fund all of this.

But the Office of Population Affairs is not just pro-abortion and pro-sterilization.  On the page describing their “purpose and mission”, they actually admit that “population research” and studying “population growth” are part of their core work.  The following is an excerpt from the official OPA website [3]…


Title X is the only federal program dedicated solely to the provision of family planning and related preventive services. The Office of Population Affairs (OPA) administers the Title X program and serves as the focal point to advise the Secretary and the Assistant Secretary for Health on a wide range of reproductive health topics, including family planning, adolescent pregnancy, sterilization and other population issues.

The Office of Population Affairs operates under the direction of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs.

Family Planning Mission

To assist individuals in determining the number and spacing of their children through the provision of voluntary, confidential and low-cost education, counseling, and related comprehensive medical services to eligible clients:
•To assist in making comprehensive, voluntary family planning services available to all persons desiring such services;
•To coordinate domestic population and family planning research with the present and future needs of family planning programs;
•To enable public and nonprofit private entities to plan and develop comprehensive programs of family planning services;
•To develop and make readily available information, including educational materials, on family planning and population growth to all persons desiring such information;
•To evaluate and improve the effectiveness of family planning service programs and population research; and
•To assist in training staff to effectively carry out family planning services


And needless to say, the goal is never to increase the size of the population.

At least in the old days these population control advocates were more honest about what they were trying to do.  For example, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once made the following statement [4]…

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

Sadly, this sick and twisted philosophy is not just limited to one specific department of the federal government.

The truth is that this worldview is represented at the highest levels in the White House itself.  Barack Obama repeatedly mentions how much he depends on the advice of his top science adviser John P. Holdren.  Well, as many of you probably already know, Holdren is an enthusiastic proponent of extreme population control measures.

The following is what one writer discovered [5] when he investigated Holdren’s writings…

He offered that “a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources … The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries’ shares within their regional limits … The Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.”

Holdren, et al, believe this global body possesses “ample authority under which population growth could be regulated.” Hiding behind the passive voice, they wrote, “it has been concluded”—by whom?—”that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.” (Emphasis added.) They added that if parents were guilty of “overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility.”

To further reduce the West’s population and carbon footprint, the “de-development of overdeveloped countries…should be given top priority.”

Holdren further, repeatedly, proposed the United States transfer $1.43 trillion to $2.86 trillion of U.S. GNP to Third-World countries every year for several decades [6].

Isn’t that disturbing?

This is the guy telling Obama what he should believe about scientific matters.

In a previous article [7], I included this gem from Holdren…

A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men.

The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.

But to be fair, this is not the first president that has had a nutjob like this as his top science adviser.  George W. Bush actually employed Paul Ehrlich, the author of “The Population Bomb”, as his top science official.  In many ways, Ehrlich is even more extreme than Holdren is.  Here are a couple of quotes from Ehrlich [7]…

“To our minds, the fundamental cure, reducing the scale of the human enterprise (including the size of the population) to keep its aggregate consumption within the carrying capacity of Earth is obvious but too much neglected or denied”


“Nobody, in my view, has the right to have 12 children or even three unless the second pregnancy is twins”

Remember, these are not just two nutty professors from the lunatic fringe.  These are highly respected members of the scientific community that are personally advising our presidents.

And the leading contender to become the next president is also surrounded by these types of people.

For example, a key adviser to Hillary Clinton named Nina Fedoroff once made the following statement [7]…

“We need to continue to decrease the growth rate of the global population; the planet can’t support many more people.”

It is not politically expedient for our politicians to come right out and proclaim that they are for population control while they are on the campaign trail.

But if you look at their actions and at the people that they surround themselves with, the message is exceedingly clear.

So what do you think about all of this?  Please feel free to share your thoughts by posting a comment below…

Embryo Adoption

Page Highlights:



The Office of Population Affairs (OPA) within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health (OASH) is responsible for administering the frozen embryo adoption public awareness campaign. The campaign supports grants, cooperative agreements and/or contracts which aim to increase public awareness of embryo donation/adoption. The program may also fund projects that provide services to make this family building option more attainable for infertile individuals.

In the course of treatments for infertility, couples usually produce more embryos than they can use. These supernumerary embryos are generally frozen while the couple who created them decides about their ultimate disposition. This freezing process is known as cryo-preservation. The latest data suggest that there are more than 600,000 cryo-preserved embryos in the United States. However, it is likely that the vast majority of these cryo-preserved embryos are still being considered for use in the family-building efforts of the couples who created them. Moreover, some embryos are earmarked by the creating couples for use in research. Nevertheless, it is thought that there may be as many as 60,000 frozen embryos which could potentially be made available for embryo adoption (i.e., the transfer of the embryo to the uterus of a woman who intends to bear a child and to be that child's parent). The ultimate purpose of the program is to promote the use of embryo/donation as a family-building option.

The Office of Population Affairs was created by Congress in 1970:
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI

Thanks, I see the title x funding goes to 1970 as well.

  • #NeverTrump: Blinded by hate
... As does the EPA, December 1970.

Nixon is a prime example of a Republican who loved big government.

Which proves the point I've been making, it took both Republicans and Democrats to build the monstrous Washington, DC behemoth, with all its agencies, laws, soul-stealing regulations and theft of liberty.
#NeverTrump: Lenin's Useful Idiots defined. Be proud of yourselves. You made it onto Hillary's Christmas card list.
