Biden Gives $5M Tax Dollars to UN Population Control Group That Funds Abortions
Administration reverses Trump-era policy to pump cash into United Nations Population Fund
Democrat Joe Biden has reversed another policy of President Donald Trump's so the administration can pump millions of dollars of taxpayer money into a population control group that funds abortions worldwide.
America is donating $5 million in tax dollars to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which works in over 150 countries around the world.
The State Department announced that huge donation in a statement on its website.
"Deputy Secretary [Wendy] Sherman announced an inaugural U.S. contribution of $5 million to UNFPA Supplies, which will help ensure that modern contraceptives and lifesaving maternal health medicines reach women and adolescent girls who need access to family planning and safe delivery in countries affected by humanitarian emergencies,” the statement reads.
In an article for the Gateway Pundit, contributor Joe Hoft framed the action in starkly different terms.
"This Administration is all about death. It is dark and hateful," Hoft declared.
"The Biden/Obama Administration is all about death," Hoft wrote.
"Last week it was reported that the Administration sent $5 million to the UN to support a program that pays for abortions worldwide,” he added.
"More death from the Biden/Obama Administration.”
Twitter users shared Hoft's sentiment about Biden's move.

The Trump administration had stopped funding the group in 2017 as part of its policy of not funding groups that supported abortion.
At the time the State Department said the fund “supports or participates in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization,” according to The New York Times.

"Faithful Catholic"? Yeah stinkin' right.
The Center for Family and Human Rights noted that the fund supports abortion in several ways.
“Among the maternal health commodities the fund distributes are a portable abortion device called the manual vacuum aspirator (MVA) kits and the abortion-inducing drugs misoprostol and mifepristone, both separately and in a combined pack,” wrote Rebecca Oas, the associate director of research at the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, on the center’s website.
The center noted that the Biden administration’s donation set a precedent.
“In the past, Republican administrations have withheld funding from UNFPA because of its promotion of abortion-related language in UN agreements and its historical links with the Chinese government’s draconian population control policies. Democratic administrations have restored funding to the agency,” Oas continued.
“However, no prior U.S. administration has funded UNFPA Supplies, whose leading contributors include the Gates Foundation and wealthy European countries.”
What a heartbreaking misuse of taxpayer dollars. https://t.co/UdunIIj8I1— Faith & Freedom (@FaithandFreedom) November 7, 2021
The center noted that by not directly funding abortions the Biden administration may have not violated a long-standing law, “but there is no doubt that it will in effect export abortion around the world.”
