Discussion of Falling Birthrates Will Be Front and Center at World Congress of Families V

MEDIA ADVISORY, ( -- Barry McLerran, producer of "Demographic Winter" and the just-released documentary, "The Demographic Bomb," said declining birthrates would be the most widely discussed topic at World Congress of Families V in Amsterdam, which will begin in exactly 3 weeks (August 10-12).

Philip Longman, a scholar with the New American Foundation and the author of "The Empty Cradle: How Falling Birthrates Threaten World Prosperity And What To Do About It" (2004), will give a plenary-session speech titled "Demography And Family: Lessons for Developing Nations." Longman plays a pivotal part in "Demographic Winter."

Demographic Winter Communications Director Don Feder will speak on a Family and Demography panel. The panel will be chaired by Steven Smoot, the documentary's executive producer.

On the evening of August 11, there will be a European premiere of "The Demographic Bomb: Demography Is Destiny," for delegates to World Congress of Families V.

McLerran commented: "World Congress of Families V will be the most important international pro-family conference of the year. Its Co-Sponsors include all of the largest values-voter groups in the United States, as well as pro-family organizations in Canada, Mexico, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Poland and the Netherlands."

"That the issue of drastically falling birthrates will play such a prominent role in World Congress of Families V recognizes the movement's growing concern about this crisis-in-the-making. Winning the battle on life issues or the preservation of marriage will be hollow if humanity quietly slips into Demographic Winter, which threatens both the family and the very foundation of civilization."

Besides examining the economic consequences of the worldwide decline in birth rates, "The Demographic Bomb" exposes the role of the population-control movement in the coming population bust. The documentary reveals how organizations, institutions, governments and the United Nations manipulated and coerced families, evaded political accountability and violated basic human rights to achieve their agenda.
