The Myth of Overpopulation and How it Feeds the Abortion Mindset

Christians have been deceived into believing the overpopulation myth that says that poverty is due to our vast population. This is a severely flawed way of thinking that blames hunger and poverty in a country on the number of people it has. They have the simplistic notion that there is hunger because there are too many people to feed. Maybe you even accept this theory. You say, it's so obvious, a man with ten children can't feed all his kids! The more Filipinos to feed, the more hunger we will have in the Philippines. Have you ever stopped to think if your views
agreed with the word of God? Have you ever stopped to think if your views made sense?

The word of God says, that sons are a heritage from the Lord, children are a reward, sons are like arrows, and blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them! Children are a blessing, both to a family and to a country. When we look down on children as a burden, we are going against the word of God. We must be aware that it is this mentality that considers children as a burden, and
not as a blessing from God, that breeds the birth control mentality, which considers pregnancy as a curse and as a roadblock to worldly success, which then leads to the abortion mentality, which places absolutely no value on the life of an unborn baby so they can be killed on demand.

The word of God also says in Malachi 2:15 Has He not made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. The Lord puts man and woman together in a marriage covenant because He was seeking godly offspring. The Lord is looking for godly offspring, not birth control of the offspring. The children are a burden to the family and to the nation mentality is not consistent with the word of God!

The overpopulation concept fosters the birth control mentality. It argues that if you are overpopulated, you have to reduce the population. It says that hunger is brought about by having too many people to feed, thus the solution is to reduce the number of people to feed. An overpopulated country is thus told it needs birth control drugs as the solution to their problem. And to sell more and more contraceptives, drug companies and birth control advocates
working together convince the government to make birth control a national policy. If its a national policy, then the government must distribute the drugs through it Health Department. And such contracts amount to hundreds of millions of pesos.

Whats worse is that in other countries, population control or birth control includes abortion. Their pro-abortion, pro-birth control governments consider abortion as a reproductive right or a woman's right to choose. And you have the pro-abortion advocates like the Center for Reproductive Rights, a U.S.-based non-governmental organization which has as their main goal the overturning of sovereign nations policies on abortion through legislative and judicial change. As Christians we do not realize that by accepting the birth control mentality we are actually becoming allies with these pro-death, pro-abortion groups. The word of God says: Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? ... (2 Cor 6:14-16)

The reason why there is hunger in the Philippines is not because we are too many. I believe its because there is lack of distribution of wealth between the rich and the poor. I believe it's because of the greed and plunder of past government leaders, which made our country's economy fall and become unstable, which then lessened the peso's purchasing power. I believe its because of the continued greed of many government officials who steal from the coffers of the nation so that food, electricity, irrigation, and roads do not make it to the rest of the population. We must not reduce the number of people because they're "too many". People are the riches of a nation.
