Alleged World Overpopulation...
Is A Myth
The purpose of this document is to show how high profile
individuals can promote myths which then become "truths" and then are
turned against the target Faith.
In this 1993 vintage letter from miguel de Portugal to key members of
the world press, he showed how ridiculous was to blame the Catholic
Faith for the overpopulation of the world. An overpopulation which,
even if it did exist, could
not be blamed on the practice of the Catholic Faith.
Please note that, about eight years after this letter was written, Jane
Fonda had embraced Christianity and left Ted Turner behind. (1)

Fonda and Ted Turner anti Catholic Faith bias
"overpopulation" of the world is a myth
I have just read in the Portuguese press that Jane Fonda is now
fighting all that, according to her, threatens the world. In this
group she includes the Catholic Church because of her opposition to the
use of artificial birth control.
She is quoted as declaring, in a world population related meeting at
the United Nations, that: "Powerful
interests, among which is the
Catholic Church, are trying to convince us to abandon artificial birth
control as necessary to family planning".
Further, Ted Turner, owner of CNN and husband of Ms. Fonda, accuses the
Church of refusing to face realities. As if these statements were
not arrogant enough, Jane Fonda advises Mr. Clinton, the President of
the United States, on the CIA budget and how to divert that money to
family planning projects.
My dear friends, acting abilities and business acumen are not
necessarily a manifestations of wisdom. For example, Paul Raymond
has been classified by "Business Age" as the richest person in England
(1.5 Billion Pounds). His business? Pornography! Business
acumen, yes! Wisdom, no!, unless one embraces the philosophy that
the degradation of human beings is a wise thing to do and promote.
As others before the Fonda-Turner team, the basis for the heavy
promotion of birth control has been the so-called overpopulation of the
world. Let us take a brief scientific, cold and factual look at that.
The world population projected for the year 2,000 is ca. 6.5 billion
inhabitants. The entire surface area of Mexico is 1,972,000
sq.km. Let us now do some simple arithmetic.
Using only half of the area of Mexico (ca. 986,000 sq.km) as the living
space for the entire world population, then, the population
density would be ca. 6,600 inhabitants per sq.km. Since one
square kilometer (sq.km) will yield 7,200 parcels of 1,250 square feet
each, we may quickly see that these number will result in less
than one inhabitant per 1,250 square feet parcel. An ample one
bedroom apartment has an average living area of only 800 square
This leaves 50% of the area of Mexico and the remaining land mass of
our planet for other uses besides lodging. This hardly seems to
be overloading our planet.
Another source of bafflement for this writer are the continuous attacks
on the Catholic Church by the Fonda-Turner team. The current
level of inhabitants on this planet calling themselves Catholics
is ca. 13% with less than 1% of them strictly adhering to
the Catholic Doctrine on birth control.
Scientifically and socially this tiny group of Catholics, spread
throughout the world, without Divine assistance, could not possibly be
a threat to the Fonda-Turner team and their agenda. This is
as completely illogical as the overpopulation myth.
With this kind of aberrant rationale, how could then the Fonda-Turner
team pretend to advise the President of the U.S. on what to do with the
CIA budget, make recommendations to the United Nations on
population related matters and attempt to impose their selection of
programs, thus, their values, via satellite, in Europe, while at
the same time controlling the national and international news market
My dear friends, this writer does not believe that we really see the
real Fonda-Turner agenda. Do we really know what it really is? Perhaps
their logic would not seem as aberrant if we only knew their real
objectives. At least we know that Paul Raymond is the British King of
smut, but, who are really Jane Fonda and Ted Turner? Who are they
really serving? Our country? Our planet? Hardly!
P.S. For the Editor's Records: In each sq.km we have 100 square blocks
of 10,000 square meters each (over 90,000 square feet each); in
each square block we can measure out 72 parcels of 1,250 square feet in
area each (72 x 1,250 = 90,000 sq.ft.).
