Population Ponderings

It appears that economic collapse is feared in some quarters in the world…but not in others.

If certain countries, fearing economic collapse due to population decline, are paying their citizens to bring more babies into the world, why is the United States government encouraging women to, in effect, shrink the population through contraception and abortion? And are the government’s pro-contraception, pro-abortion practices being exported to some third-world countries that just might view this phenomenon as imperialism all over again?

Some numbers are here:
