If you doubt it, read this post by Steven W. Mosher and Anne Roback Morse:
A few of the eye-popping, soul-discouraging, indignation-inspiring nuggets:
- "China is currently short more than 37,000,000 women as female infanticide, sex-selective abortion, and neglect have ripped through the female population."
- "The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) spent $4,861,000 in China last year for "population dynamics programs," "family planning," and other population control programs. The United States gave $30,200,000 to the UNFPA last year."
- "Over the past two decades, Population Research Institute has repeatedly sent teams of investigators into China. We have thoroughly investigated UNFPA 'model family planning counties,' and found that local UNFPA representatives are working hand-in-hand with the Chinese government. If anything, forced sterilizations and forced abortions were more prevalent in the UNFPA's so-called ‘model counties’ than in the rest of China."
The President of the United States has the authority, under legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Reagan, "to stop funding 'any organization or program which, as determined by the President of the United States, supports or participates in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization'."
Let’s pray that God would work in Mr. Obama's heart to exercise his authority on the side of life.
