Fine Print in New UN Report: Abortion Only Way to Keep Women Safe and Healthy

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 31 (C-Fam) Last November at a summit in Nairobi, the UN Population Fund announced that it would take $264 billion to reduce global maternal deaths and protect women and girls from violence. The agency just released a publication outlining the details of how the billions would be spent—and the fine print includes abortion.

One of the enduring legacies of ICPD in 1994 is the compromise that was struck among nations: that the legal status of abortion was for national governments to determine, and that where legal, it should be “safe.” In the past quarter century, the same feminist organizations that sought to establish an international human right to abortion at the conference have continued to lobby for the same goal, calling it the “unfinished agenda of ICPD.”

Nevertheless, no right to abortion exists in international human rights or humanitarian law, and UNFPA, which receives its directives from agreements reached by governments at the UN, has no mandate to promote abortion. Its three central goals, set out in 2018, are to eliminate preventable maternal deaths, eliminate the “unmet need” for family planning, and to end gender-based violence, including child marriage and female genital mutilation.

The price tag for achieving these three goals, set at $264 billion, was publicized at the Nairobi Summit, but the specific details were set out this month in a new publication. In collaboration with researchers from several universities and other organizations, UNFPA broke down the specific interventions in each category, with cost estimates for each of the three targets.

The elimination of preventable maternal deaths in 120 priority countries, estimated as costing $115.5 billion over the next ten years, requires ensuring that “29 interventions are universally available,” one of which is “safe abortion services.”

Something about having a whole body but being thrown into Hell comes to mind.

Soooo what was so bad about Nazis? Was it their methods? So the result of destroying Nazis culture was the U.N. and liberals to become the new Nazis.

Need $264 billion to pass around to leaders of 3rd world countries so they can pack away fortunes. And, to leave enough to give back to high ups on the “giving” side.

Anything left over can go to programs.

Abortion ends child brides and female genital mutilation?

Banning Islam would accomplish that.

It’s always amazing that whenever the subject of maternal health comes up, there is always someone who sees it as an opportunity to expand the exploitation of women for profit.

How about instituting measures that promote health, and dropping the profiteering on murder?
