According to Dr. Stephen D. Mumford of the Center for Research on Population and Security, "The causes and implications of population growth in America were cogently presented in the definitive 1969 report of The Commission on Population Growth and the American Future/The Rockefeller Commission in 1972."[1]

Mumford states: "Had the 70 recommendations of the Commission's report, Population and the American Future, been implemented, a comprehensive U.S. population policy would have resulted. America and the world would be a very different place today. Adoption of this policy would have provided leadership vital to coping with the world overpopulation problem. According to John D. Rockefeller 3rd, the U.S. Catholic Bishops threatened President Richard M. Nixon politically, and bowing to their pressure he disavowed this report. None of the 70 recommendations was ever implemented. The U.S. continues to have no population policy."[2]
