There are increasing accusations that the World Health Organization (WHO) colluded in order to hide the extent and severity of the coronavirus pandemic, and now there are suggestions that the U.N., through the WHO and the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), will use the crisis to increase abortions internationally as well.
The UNFPA, per its website, is a “United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency. Our mission is to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is filled.”
What this agency does not mention is that it clandestinely supports abortion.
In 2017, the Trump Administration requested that the Department of State cut funding to the UNFPA over concerns that it “supports, or participates in the management of, a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.” There are also allegations that the UNFPA has connections and has supported China’s one child policy.
Elyssa Koren, who works as the director of United Nations advocacy for ADF International, shared in an interview with The Daily Citizen about how the UNFPA has historically funded and promoted abortions through proxies and will use the additional funds made available by the coronavirus pandemic to target developing and pro-life countries with pro-abortion propaganda.
“The UNFPA was created, from the very start, with an overarching prohibition on the promotion of abortion for family planning,” Koren said. “Yet somehow, it seems that the majority of what it does is promote abortion. They do this by relying on various euphemisms and using resolutions to push its agenda. The UNFPA was created to be the policy arm and abortion groups like International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) is its executor.”
The UNFPA will get $120 million of the UN’s $2.01 billion response funds for the coronavirus pandemic, and UNFPA will likely provide part of these funds to support the efforts of pro-abortion groups like the IPPF and Marie Stopes International.
Though officially the UNFPA emphatically denies that it provides or promotes abortions on its website, in reality the situation is very different.
“The UNFPA through their partners likes to send what are called ‘minimum initial services packages,’ which are sent into countries in a moment of humanitarian crisis and right now are being deployed for the coronavirus pandemic,’” Koren said. “Included in these boxes are rather gruesome items like abortifacient medicines, vacuum extractors and a sopher clamp, which is used to crush fetal skulls during later term abortions. These items are sent under the guise of helping women with complications following a miscarriage, but if you dig a bit deeper you see that in conjunction with that box, they sent a manual that details how to use the materials to perform a first trimester abortion. That should dispel any doubts about what they do.”
Some of the countries scheduled to receive those packages include Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Egypt, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Myanmar, Niger, Nigeria, Lebanon, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, Venezuela and Yemen.
These are some of the most challenging countries in the world to work in from a humanitarian aid perspective, with many being essentially failed states. For example, Somalia is a terrorist infested warzone, the DRC is a lawless jungle wilderness with wandering militia groups and an Ebola outbreak, and most of the people who live in South Sudan essentially use technology similar to what was found in the stone age and try to survive an endless civil war. These countries can barely function without foreign aid, but the demographics also don’t support a strong COVID response as many have mostly a younger population that are more likely to die from other preventable conditions before the coronavirus.
As developing or failed countries, they don’t need abortion advocates coming in the guise of humanitarian support.
As Koren wrote in a recent Newsweek article, “As the only international monolith of its kind, the U.N. is uniquely poised to respond to this crisis—which is precisely why, as thousands die at the hands of the virus, the killing of the innocent unborn with U.N. funds is especially abhorrent.”
