The following is the quoted newsletter from the John Birch Society, October 13, 2011. The content has got to be most important to all Americans especially to those of childbearing age and those of school age. The United Nations Population Fund is and entity that is preparing to attack morals, the right to chose the number of children a couple wishes to have, and the right to life of the unborn and possibly of children up to about three years of age. The organization is behind, and helped implement the one child limit placed on Chinese families. They are complicit with the extreme abortion scenario that exists in China today.
We do not want the morals of our country, especially those of our children, eroded and eliminated by some misdirected World organization sponsored by the United Nations. We don’t want pre-birth and post-birth babies eradicated without a chance or choice.
Please read this newsletter and contact your Representative in the House of Representatives and let her/him know in no uncertain terms that you will not vote for their re-election if they don’t co-sponsor and support H.R. 2059.
Defund the UN Population Fund
There’s never been a better opportunity to defund a department of the United Nations than right now. Fresh out of the House Foreign Relations Committee is H.R. 2059, a remarkably short bill that would prohibit funding of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The proposal has 83 cosponsors and quite a lot of momentum, and could save the American taxpayers $400 million in one decade, and probably many babies’ lives. In addition, it would bring the White House’s current policy back in line with American law that prohibits funding for any agency that supports or participates in programs of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization. (Think China.)
So, instead of promoting policies that would delay marriage and childbearing for the poverty-stricken of many countries, the UNFPA encourages promiscuity. Instead of abstinence training, a sexual revolution is advanced. And, instead of telling teens the truth about free sex, they hype the glories of condom use that afford little or no protection from sexually transmitted diseases rampant in many third world countries. Shockingly, the UN’s answer to gender discrimination and sex selection brought about by the one-child policy is “safe” abortions.
UNFPA was caught in 2001 praising China’s brutally enforced one-child policy, but denies that its programs in China supported coercive abortions. However, in 2002, the U.S. State Department, while concluding that UNFPA didn’t “knowingly” support or participate in forced abortions or sterilization, found that UNFPA had indeed provided computers and data-processing equipment that facilitated the implementation of China’s coercive policy, and even shared office space. This knowledge prompted then-Secretary of State Colin Powell to call for an end of U.S. funding for UNFPA. Furthermore John Negroponte, Deputy Secretary of State concurred in 2008 saying, “all UNFPA programming related to contraception and reproductive health incorporates, and defers to Chinese law and regulation.”
In 2005 and in 2006, UNFPA and International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) jointly advanced a framework that included “sexual and reproductive health and rights,” including “safe abortion.” In 2007, the goal was to introduce MVA techniques — vacuum aspiration for early term abortions — across the African continent. The IPPF at that time spent $100,000 on a special session for African health ministers to implement the UNFPA/IPPF plan of action.
In 2010, UNFPA’s contribution to IPPF was $1.6 million. UN Women contributed over $330,000. UNAIDS gave IPPF over $1 million. And the World Bank, WHO, and UNAIDS collectively donated $400,000 to IPPF.
Although House appropriators included a UNFPA funding ban in their version of the fiscal 2012 State Department spending bill, their Senate counterparts included $40 million for the UNFPA in their version, while President Obama has requested $47.5 million.
The moral of this story is that eventually, money given to UNFPA ends up in the pockets of those whose goal it is to increase abortions and destroy the morality and values of the people in many geographic locations; there’s little evidence that poverty is eliminated, or that women and children are any healthier.
Contact your congressmen now and insist they vote to defund UNFPA by passing H.R. 2059. Anything less would not be representational of the wishes of the American people who reject abortion and the use of their hard-earned tax dollars to pay for it.
