Human Rights Catastrophes of the Sexual Revolution: Population Control and Demographic Winter

There is no overpopulation problem. The people in every industrial country in the world are not having enough children to even replace themselves. The birth rate is declining in most of the rest of the world as well. My interview with journalist Don Feder answers these important questions.

Does overpopulation cause poverty or pollution? Why is under-population a bigger problem than over-population? What do you say to people who criticize you for having more than two children?

Who is behind the population hysteria? What human rights abuses are being committed in the name of solving the "population problem?" Most importantly, what can you do about all this? Watch this episode of the Dr. J Show to find out!

Featuring Don Feder, long-time columnist for the Boston Herald and Communications Director for the World Congress of Families, now Ruth Institute Coalitions Director. A 1972 graduate of the Boston University School of Law, Feder is admitted to the practice of law in New York and Massachusetts. He was a leader of Young Americans for Freedom, at the time America’s largest conservative organization.

  • We need to see past stereotypes and see people. We need to see past stereotypes and, instead, see the image and likeness of God in each other. We should stop supporting media, individuals, and organizations that create, encourage, and perpetuate racist stereotypes, or who propose violence as a solution. Racist ideologies create images that leave negative impressions on susceptible and vulnerable minds and hearts, especially those of children.
  • Reach out with compassion to those of different races and hear their stories, respond with empathy, and work with humble, contrite hearts to build bridges of understanding in order to acknowledge the unique gifts we all bring to the Body of Christ.
  • We need to understand how police officers are trained. Go on a ride-a-long.

Walter B. Hoye II is both Founder and President of the Issues4Life Foundation, the California Civil Rights Foundation, Founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of California, co-founder and Executive Member of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition, a Board Member of The Morning Center (providing free full-service maternity care for women in urban and under-served areas), a published author (Leadership from the IN|SIDE Out), a board member of The Ruth Institute, a full-time pro-life activist, and a leadership consultant.

This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here.

As a young man Walter played football at Michigan State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Sociology in 1980. On Tuesday, January 12th, 1982 Walter was licensed to preach the gospel by the Calvary Baptist Church in San Diego, California. Walter graduated from the United States International University, now Alliant International University, with a Master's degree in Business Administration in 1983.

In 1984, God used the premature birth of his firstborn son (six months, 2.1 pounds) to teach Rev. Hoye that the preborn is a person, a living & breathing human being.

On Sunday, April 23rd, 1989 Walter was ordained a Baptist preacher by Pastor Dr. S.M. Lockridge. From 1984 to 1987 Walter served as Minister of Christian Education at the St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Oceanside, California. From 1987 to 1991, Walter served as Assistant to the Pastor and Director of the Youth Department at the Greater Faith Baptist Church in Stockton, California. From 1991 to 2010, Walter served as the Executive Elder of the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church of Berkeley.

In May of 2010, Walter resigned to work full-time in the Pro-Life movement. He was asked to join a group of pro-life sidewalk counselors, to pray and give out literature to women on their way to the entrance of an abortuary. His ministry blossomed so much that the abortuary lost a great deal of business, and they complained to the Oakland authorities, who literally created a law just to put Rev. Hoye in jail. Though in court Rev. Hoye and his attorney from Life Legal Defense proved both that Walter did absolutely nothing illegal and that the only witness against him blatantly lied, the pro-abortion judge made sure Rev. Hoye unjustly went to jail, which he did. The judge, in fact, sought to sentence Walter to four *years* in jail for standing on a public sidewalk, but could not because of a legal technicality.

Walter leads the Oakland pro-life march, he competes in the San Francisco Marathon and catches an NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB game whenever he can.

Melea Stephens is a practicing marriage and family therapist and an activist leader against sexual exploitation in her home state of Alabama. She is a board member with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and the founder of Rescue Innocence Movement, a nonprofit created to protect this generation of children from the harms of sexual exploitation through prevention, education, and legislation.

After witnessing the detrimental effects of hardcore pornography in the lives of both children and adults she treated, Melea felt a call to raise awareness about the unacknowledged health and societal harms of this illegal material. Since 2012, Melea has organized several city and statewide events and public awareness campaigns. She frequently partners with anti-trafficking leaders to promote education and meet the needs of survivors of sexual exploitation. Through the Rescue Innocence Movement and with the help of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and local leaders, she has been instrumental in the launch of the nation’s first emergency treatment program for pediatric survivors of sex trafficking at UAB Hospital. Melea often speaks publicly on topics such as the public health crisis of pornography and enhancing sexual intimacy within the context of Christian marriage. She was also a key leader in the recent passage of the Alabama Resolution to Declare Pornography a Public Health Crisis. Melea longs to see a day when the evil of sexual exploitation is fully extinguished by a majority in society who have grown intolerant of its immense harms and injustices. She believes that, through continued awareness, education, advocacy, and united activism, that day is close within our grasp.
