The US Won't Give Any More Money To The UN Population Fund
05 April, 2017, 02:26
The Trump administration's decision to pull support from a United Nations family planning agency hurts some of the world's most desperate women and girls, advocates said Tuesday.
The State Department said the funding was cut because UNFPA works with the Chinese government, which "employs measures such as coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization to carry out its population-control policies".
UNFPA issued its own statement Tuesday, rejecting the US accusation that it supports coercive abortion and forced sterilization in China. Democratic presidents - including President Obama in 2009 - typically reinstate the funding.
Women's health advocates warn that US support for family planning and reproductive health services is even more uncertain under the Trump administration, which in January reinstated a controversial policy that withholds funding for worldwide organizations that perform abortions or provide information about abortion. It's up to each administration to determine which organizations meet that condition.

The Trump administration has also signalled that it no longer sees a need for the U.S.to so generously fund United Nations and other global organizations.
"The determination will result in withholding Dollars 32.5 million of fiscal year 2017 funding, provided for UNFPA", it said, adding that the funds instead will be directed to other global health programs.
The statement went on to note, for example, that U.S. funding for UNFPA had worked to ensure safe childbirth for refugees in the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan and funded the only Iraqi clinic for survivors of "physical abuse, sexual violence, and other horrific atrocities inflicted by ISIL".
BBC reported that the state department says the agency supports or participates in a programme of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilisation in China. The George W. Bush administration similarly cited Kemp-Kasten to strip funding in 2002, claiming UNFPA was complicit in forced sterilizations and abortions as part of China's one-child policy.
