It is almost unthinkable that an institution of such prestige as the United Nations would offer support to the policies of demographic "containment" involving the practice of abortion.
According to the Charter agreed upon at San Francisco, we know that the United Nations is an international organization composed of sovereign states. But in these demographic and medical matters, the specialized agencies of the United Nations act more and more as if the UN was a supranational organization, that is, one having authority over the sovereign states which are its members.
While carefully avoiding constructing any theory, the UN is in the process of putting into practice a new version of the doctrine of "limited sovereignty." Little by little it is abandoning its role as an organ of dialogue and concerted action to transform itself into a directive organ which tends to limit the sovereignty of its members.
Here we have a characteristic abuse of power. By way of demographic policies which they discuss, suggest and put into effect, the specialized agencies of the UN induce a change in the very nature of the organization. They tend to make of the UN a supranational authority in the service of the great world market, of a "new world order".
Converging and disquieting indications lead one to believe that the UN, with its specialized agencies, is in the process of becoming an immense machine that manipulates the wealthiest nations of the world, first of all the United States, to put into effect a world government for its profit.1
