The US cut funding for a UN program for women and girls. As promised, the United States drastically cut funding to the United Nations’ most significant population agency, which helps women in 155 countries around the world.
Late Monday the Trump administration announced it would pull $32.5 million for the United Nations Population Fund because it works with the Chinese government, which forces its citizens into coercive abortions and involuntary sterilization.
UN officials on the other hand have said the UNFRA, has nothing to do with abortion. They said the US funding goes largely to emergency aid at a time when the world is facing the worst cluster of humanitarian crises in decades.
Regardless of what the UN has to say, on January 23 President Donald Trump signed an executive order that directed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to ensure that U.S. tax dollars don’t fund groups or programs that “support or participate in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”
Tillerson who is cutting the State Department budget by 28% made a determination that the directive applied to UNFPA, which the US helped found in 1969.
A State Department Official said UNFPA partners on family planning with “the Chinese government agency responsible for implementing China’s coercive family planning policies. UNFPA can therefore be found for purposes of the statute to support, or participate in the management of, that Chinese agency’s coercive program. We will continue to consult closely with UNFPA to assess carefully whether UNFPA’s programs should warrant the restriction in future years.”
The UNFPA has repeatedly refuted the claim.
