In 1974, when this report was put together, the U.S. government was concerned about the growing population on the planet, especially coming from the lesser developed countries.  The plan of action by the U.S. and 13­­­­7 nations was to carry out population control measures.  Their number one goal was to “reduce fertility.”  They did this by “creating conditions conducive to fertility decline.”  One of the recommendations to reduce fertility was to “expand wage employment, especially for women.”  In essence, if they put women to work, there would be fewer pregnancies and therefore, reduce the number of people on earth.

It would seem that the topic of discussion on this memorandum is benign because their concerns seemed real.  Or is it?

” Fundamental and developmental research should be expanded, aimed at simple, low-cost, effective, safe, long-lasting and acceptable methods of fertility control. Support by all federal agencies for biomedical research in this field should be increased by $60 million annually.”

There’s a growing number of infertility issues arising all over the world today.  Could this have something to do with it?
