The Trump administration appointed pro-life leader Patrina Mosley to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) recently, and she began her job at the agency on June 8. She previously worked for the Family Research Council as the director of life, culture, and women’s advocacy, and in her new job, she will be able to influence agencies that have pushed to promote abortions globally by using federal tax dollars.

Mosley has voiced her frustration with the United Nations in the past for using the COVID-19 pandemic to promote abortion by sending abortion equipment to countries that need help dealing with the disease.

“The United Nations has acted as the global enforcer of liberalism, disregarding the national sovereignty of nations by withholding aid to nations that do not support their abortion agenda,” Mosley wrote in a letter to the UN. “For far too long, developing countries that desperately need basic necessities have had to choose between their national sovereignty in holding values like the sanctity of life or accepting UN food and water that come with contraceptives and abortions. So much for the UN being 'humanitarian.' Now that we as a global community are confronting something we have rarely faced before with the current pandemic, it should not be controversial to collectively say: Abortion is not humanitarian aid.”
