Pope Francis Urges China-Style ‘One Child Policy’ For Western World

Pope Francis is urging Christians to adopt China's one child policy in order to "make the world more sustainable", according to a panelist at the Vatican-run Biological Extinction Conference held earlier this week.

Pope Francis is urging Christians to adopt China’s one child policy in order to “make the world more sustainable“, according to a panelist at the Vatican-run Biological Extinction Conference held earlier this week.

The pope believes that the solution to securing the world’s sustainability lies in depopulation, and the Western world must stop producing so many babies if the world is to survive beyond “the next period of darkness.”

Pope Francis’ solution to securing the world’s sustainability was presented by environmentalist Peter Raven during the Biological Extinction Conference, however the pontiff’s decree was met with hostility by senior Catholics in the Vatican.

The prospect of reducing Christian numbers while members of other religions, most notably Islam, produce statistically larger families across the board, prompted senior Catholics to vow to ignore the Pope’s order.

And it’s not the first rebellion has begun fomenting on Vatican soil in recent times.

Earlier this week a global coalition of Catholic pro-life and pro-family organizations urged Catholics to “resist” the Vatican’s increasing alliance with the leftist agenda, specifically as championed by the United Nations, warning that such an alliance poses an “immediate and serious threat” to children and the family.

Lifesite reports: Greg Burke, director of the Holy See Press Office, moderated a panel, which included Peter Raven, President of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS), Werner Arber, University of Cambridge Professor Emeritus of Economics Partha Dasgupta, and PAS chancellor Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo.

We do not endorse any of the artificial birth control [methods] that the Church does not endorse,” said Raven.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “every action which, whether in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible is intrinsically evil” since it destroys the unitive and procreative integrity of the marital act.

The Church teaches that a married couple who wishes to postpone pregnancy for a “grave” reason may do so by not engaging in the marital act during the fertile period.

According to Raven, the central element of the solution for “overpopulation” is that “we need a more limited number of people in the world.” In addition, “the problem is one of inequality,” where the rich use more of the world’s resources than the poor.

In the framework of social justice worldwide we need to find ways for natural resources to be distributed on the basis of compassion and love. We hope for support in our ongoing support for our endeavor to develop sustainability,” he said.

All four on the panel concurred that the survival of the planet is tightly linked to the number of people on the planet.

    is he saying this to the Muslims too? I guess not. The most uncatholic unchristian pope in a very long time.

    • laura ann

      I wondered for a long time, why Catholics don’t quit the church as apostasy is rampant. The liberal ones will stay like in the liberal protestant churches that have condoned gay marriage and other apostate agendas. People that stay in these churches are spiritually dead and blinded to truth.

      • Mollie Norris

        Membership in a 301(3)(c) church is similar to Chamber of Commerce membership to many people; it’s not Christianity.

      • Roberto Deramo

        Amen Laura Ann,

        I pray for them.

    • CheeMiss

      I was just about to post something similar. If he’s so worried about
      the planet, then he should direct his speech to the muslims, with their
      many wives and insane amount of children.

  • John C Carleton

    Translation. There are enough kids to supply the pedophile priest without having a baby boom. There are only so many babies the Washington politicians, banker, lawyers and priest can rape.

  • me

    I thought this guy was more into fucking kids than preventing them!

    • Mollie Norris

      Well, he did decide that a nine-year-old rape victim couldn’t have an abortion as a Catholic; but if Francis is in the majority of priests, victims’ pregnancy isn’t a problem.

  • Frank C

    Ramblings of an idiot. The above article pretty much says it all and really didn’t need any comment. By the way, China doesn’t have a ONE child policy any more.

  • yep

    don’t listen to this catholic idiot…..let the people live….in peace and let the peoPle decide for themselves what is good for them or not….PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS POPE….

    Genesis 1:28
    And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    So, Mr. “God on Earth”……what part of this SCRIPTURE do you NOT understand????

    Listen folks, I’m not Catholic, and neither is THIS guy!!! He is a Jesuit….. he is EVIL!

  • Jan Franskmann

    This sideshow freak should keep his gob shut

    • Mollie Norris

      Yep – I’ve read that Jesus Christ said “My kingdom is not of the world”.

  • amongoose

    Yet what, allow the inbred masses to continue to breed freely?
    When did you switch sides?
    I bet you got more than thirty pieces of silver for your betrayal.

    EXCUSE ME FOLKS!!! this article made me go take a look at the Biological Extinction Conference documents, in which I was not able to find such claims regarding the Pope. The document does refer to the Popes 2015 “LAUDATO SI” encyclical, in which the Pope NEVER SAID SUCH A THING, in fact it claims quite the oposite when referring to “some countries” that pretend to fix the problem by decreasing the population. Please take a minute to read what the Pope actually said…https://cruxnow.com/church/2015/06/18/laudato-si-chapter-one-what-is-happening-to-our-common-home/

  • Mollie Norris

    China ended its one-child policy in Oct 2015. Muslims are the only group with a high birth rate.

  • hiphop

    He needs to address the Muslims who are trying to over populate so that they can rule the world. Osama Bin Laden was believed to have fathered 24 kids. This pope is like a false profit put in place by the UN and the One World Order. He is not Catholic, he is a Jesuit and they are evil,

  • hiphop

    Christians needs to demand they put a real Pope in this idiots place.
