The U.N. population agency chief said Wednesday she regrets the U.S. government’s decision to cut funding for programs that help ensure safe pregnancies worldwide.

The United States used to provide about $70 million per year toward UNFPA programs to protect the health and lives of women and girls in developing countries. More than half of those funds were used for “life-saving humanitarian programs,” said Dr. Natalia Kanem, the agency’s executive director.

The Trump administration announced in 2017 it was cutting all funding to the agency. The move was seen as a gesture to American conservatives and anti-abortion activists, though UNFPA doesn’t provide abortions. […]

Germany’s development minister, Gerd Mueller, linked cutting the number of unwanted pregnancies in poor countries to efforts to tackle climate change and hunger. …

“said Dr. Natalia Kanem”

She murders children, millions of them, and calls herself a doctor, thats sick. In a perfect world the UN Human Rights Commission would prosecute her. Shes disgusting and will deserve her ultimate reward.

This is the problem with ALL governmental agencies...they cross pollinate their programs with funds from various sources, and then CLAIM that THIS PROGRAM doesn't fund [insert distasteful, objectionable actions here].

This is no different than Planned Deathhood claiming that Federal dollars are not spent on abortions...if they use it to clean the tools, keep the lights on, rent the building, etc...where abortions occurred, then FEDERAL DOLLARS WERE USED FOR THAT ABORTION! PERIOD!

“U.S. government’s decision to cut funding for programs that help ensure safe pregnancies worldwide.”

1.53 BILLION murdered little boys and girls since 1980, if they were alive, would disagree that their own mother’s pregnancies were safe.

There’s no deadlier place in the history of the world, than a mother’s womb of the most recent 4 decades...the one place that should be the most safe.

Ssssooooo, maybe next time, before you criticize the US and the US President, you will take into account our generosity...You know where the White House is and you know who the president is, maybe, just maybe, you need to pucker up your lips and kiss his a$$ and ask nicely to have some of the money restored...We are not your ATM, we don’t owe you or anyone else a damn dime...If we give tax payer money it is out of the kindness of our hearts, be grateful and remember the next time you want to spout off some stupid $hit about the USA...In other words, take the money, be grateful, keep you pie hole shut!!!

If you take the number of abortions since the world has made it legal in the 20th century, the number is around 1 Billion.

Makes Molech look like a piker.
