He flies over to China for 4 days and comes back with this:

WASHINGTON, Jan. 18  2002 /PRNewswire/ -- Steve Mosher, President of Population Research Institute (PRI), today produced a videotape of "rampant coercion" in the United Nations Population Fund's (UNFPA) model county family planning program in China (Sihui, Guangdong Province).

They say they have first-hand evidence, (presented at a hearing of the House Committee on International Relations October 2001), obtained during a brief 4-day "investigation" of UNFPA operations in China, September 27-30, 2001.

They say this is first hand evidence, but it has been proven false by 2 subsequent independent studies. UNFPA has proven that women ARE free to determine for themselves the timing and spacing of their pregnancies in its China program. The say they saw a UNFPA desk but they never saw a UNFPA employee.

UNFPA works only in regions of China where coercion does NOT exist and, if anything, works AGAINST any one-child policy.

PRI, having only anti-abortion as their agenda, provided the congressional committee with testimonies of coercive abortion and coercive sterilization that were totally disproved by subsequent task forces that took far more than 4 days. Republicans, nevertheless, accepted its authenticity and persuaded the  President to withhold UNFPA funding.

PRI is dedicated to abolishing "family planning" programs overseas even when abortion is no part of it.

It cares not for solving obvious overpopulation disasters but is a front for Anti-Abortionists: http://www.pop.org They say Overpopulation is a mythical problem.
