U. 5. Experts Foster i
Jap Birth Control, I
Vatican Agency Says
By the Associated Press j
ROME. July 1.—American ex- (
perts are pushing an "unscrup
ulous campaign favoring birth 1
control in Japan,” the Catholic
Information Service Fides charged i
today. ,
The charge was published in
the June 30-July 1 edition of the
Vatican newspaper "Osserva toi'2 1
Romano” under the heading: '
"The problems of the Japanese
population." 1
Fides, which describes itself as 1
an independent agency with close
i contacts in the Vatican Office of 1
Propaganda Fide <Faith*, quoted
numerous Japanese publications
to support its charge. (
It said population experts had
long awaited a favorable occa
sion to practice their theories. In
Japan now, it added, they have
found "a favorable field :f ac
I Fides said Japan is being turned
into “a scientific laboratory” and
its people into instruments of
American experts who are at
| tempting to spread the idea of
j artificial birth control * * *.”
Press Termed ‘‘Obedient 1 ool.
Fides alleged that "the obsequi
ous attitude of Japanese officials
is being used to push an extensive
birth control program, at the
same time guarding against any
unpleasant reaction on the part
of public opinion abroad by mak
ing sure that the Japanese Gov
ernment alone shoulders the
whole responsibility."
“To 'obtain this double end,"
Fides continued. "The Japanese
press is the obedient tool.”
The agency said the Japanese
officials, with the approval of
occupation authorities, are pre
paring legisation authorizing
'birth control practices.
(In Tokyo Gen. MacArthur
said the birth control question
in Japan is a matter "for indi
vidual judgment and decision."
In a memorandum to the
Allied Catholic Women's Club
of Tokyo, he added that he is
“not engaged in any study or
consideration of the problem
of Japanese population con

adviser in Gen. MacArthur* ;

way to meet the population j
problem. The general said Dr.
Thompson's report was an in

Methods Seen Rejected.
"On one hand," said Fides.
"This Christian nation (the
United States* desires to promote
the Christian concepts of moral
ity among the Japanese people."
On the other hand, it added,
"it sends technical experts to]
teach in the name of science and
democracy the most modern
methods to violate the immutable
laws of nature and the Creator.”
"All missionaries in Japan
testify to the fact that also a
great part of the non-Christian
population instinctively refuses to
use these methods. • • *
"This unscrupulous campaign
in favor of birth control is con

“The Catholics in Japan have
raised their voices in protest and
appeal to their brother Catholics
in America," Fides concluded.
