Professor Zhang Kunlun, a well-known Chinese sculptor and painter, spent three months in a PRC reeducation-through-labor camp. Chained to the wall of his cell, he was tortured by the guards, who sometimes used their fists and sometimes used electric batons in their efforts to break his will. 

The guards were demanding that he renounce his membership in a Buddhist sect called Falun Gong. Zhang steadfastly refused, even though he knew that each refusal would bring renewed torture.

Surely, Mrs. Gates would not have chosen this course if she knew the serious risks of Depo-Provera and if anyone—her Catholic parents, her Catholic high school teachers at the Ursuline Academy in Dallas or her parish priests (she attends Mass near her Medina, Washington home)—had taken the time to explain Humanae Vitae to her. This is, of course, the prophetic 1968 encyclical by Pope Paul VI that reaffirms the timeless teaching of the Church on the sanctity of human life, and rejects artificial methods of controlling births.

Through the grace of God, PRI has saved the life of an unborn child in Peru who was slated to be aborted for so-called “therapeutic” reasons.

Doctors in a Peruvian hospital had decided to give a woman with breast cancer an abortion, claiming that the abortion was necessary to save her life. In fact, they were primarily worried that their plans to put the woman on chemotherapy would cause the child to be born with birth defects.

The northern half of the peninsula, on the other hand, is a black hole. Only the dim light of Pyongyang, the capital of the communist north, breaks the unrelenting darkness.

In many ways, South Korea is a great success story. Regular, peaceful elections have been held since the country transitioned to democracy in the 1980s, in sharp contrast to the despotic—some would say psychotic—regime in the north ruled by dictator-for-life Kim Jong-Un. The Samsungs and the Hyundais continue to roll off the assembly lines, shipped to consumers in the U.S. and around the world, and providing the South Koreans with one of the highest living standards in Asia.

With its vast natural resources, the African country of Nigeria has the wherewithal to lift itself out of poverty without foreign help.  If it would put its oil money to work educating its population, building a first-rate infrastructure, and creating an industrial base, it could be another Japan.

One of the favorite claims of the population control movement is that the world is running out of resources: food, energy, and space. “There is plenty of evidence to suggest that humanity is already exceeding the planet’s limits and that we are reducing the earth’s capacity to support life, including human life,” purported Robert Walker, the president of the Population Institute, in a recent debate with our own Steven Mosher.

Baby Chonalyn was born this past Sunday to parents Clemente and Dailin, and was feted in the Philippines as “Baby 100 Million.” PRI welcomes Baby Chonalyn as well, saying that she will be a blessing to her family, her community, and her nation.
