The State Department announced it is cutting funding to the U.N. Population Fund, because the UNFPA* “supports, or participates in the management of, a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”
The “program” refers to China’s brutal one-child policy that has led to the nation aborting 400 million of its own children. This number is NOT a wild-eyed, anti-abortion exaggeration, but the number the Chinese government actually BRAGS about.
The woman in this photo tried to hide her illegal second pregnancy, because the couple could not afford to pay the government’s fine. When she got caught, her 7-month old fetus was ripped from her body and she was then forced to lie in the bed with the corpse as punishment.
The State Department said the $32.5 million in UNFPA “core” funding in the 2017 budget will be transferred to non-coercive family planning programs at the U.S. Agency for International Development.
It is not yet clear whether the U.N. fund will also lose out on tens of millions of additional dollars it has typically received from the U.S. in “non-core” funds.
*For some reason, the U.N. acronym still uses the old name — United Nations Fund for Population Activities.
