During a Sierra Club sponsored protest against the Keystone XL pipeline on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., last Sunday, several of the protesters expressed support for population control measures including the implementation of a global one-child policy similar to China’s brutal and draconian policy.
“I do believe that our Earth is overpopulated,” one of the protesters said in a video released this week by Americans for Limited Government. When asked if it’s time for a one-child policy, the man replied, “I’m all for that. One child, maybe two child max.”
China’s one-child policy was introduced in 1979 as a population control measure. The Chinese government utilizes coercive measures including forced abortions and forced sterilizations to enforce the policy. The one-child policy is the impetus behind numerous human rights violations and violent attacks by government officials on their own people each year.
