“A California group known as KZPG, (Western TV and Radio Braodcasters for Zero Population Growth) has organized a campaign to instill the One Child Policy in the United States. Based in Los Angeles, the group believes that the earth’s natural resources are being destroyed by man’s increasing need for housing and development. They estimate that in the near future the majority of the earth’s natural resources will be contaminated because of overpopulation. Therefore, the organization invites families to pledge their commitment to having only one child. To date the organization has received 192 pledges.”
