Pope FrancisA watchdog group wants Pope Francis to take action against Communist population control advocates under his control. 

The advocates were appointed to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, where academy president Margaret Archer and others oppose the Catholic Church's moral and social beliefs.  

Michael Hichborn of the Lapanto Institute says  Archer has been pushing for the Vatican to have population control experts such as Jeffrey Sachs and Ban Ki-moon present at the Vatican.


"In order to get the Vatican to start adopting and promoting the Communist sustainable development goals of the United Nations," Hichborn alleges.

That goal often includes contraception and abortion to limit population, especially in Third World countries.

Hichborn says another member of the Academy that Lapanto is concerned about is Joseph Stiglitz, chairman of the Socialist International's Commission on Global Finance.

"Just to be clear," says the Catholic watchdog, "the Socialist International was created by Karl Marx, so it is in fact international Communism that this guy is involved with."

There are other members that fit a similar profile, and The Lapanto Institute is calling on Pope Francis to rid the Academy of its Communist influence.
