The pro-abortion legal team behind Roe built their case around the work of a particular scholar. The problem? He faked the science and made the numbers up. There weren't thousands of women dying of "coat hanger" abortions. They just needed you to believe there were. Roe v Wade was forced with fake science.

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.
