US Gives $5 Million for UN to Distribute Abortion Supplies Worldwide

On Nov. 1, the US State Department announced that it will give an inaugural $5 million to the United States Population Fund. The UNFPA uses contributions from donors to distribute maternal health supplies, which by their definition includes drugs and equipment designed to end the lives of the unborn.

By using UNFPA Supplies as a third party to distribute abortion-inducing items, the Biden administration is avoiding conflict with the 1973 Helms Amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act. That law prohibits the use of government funds to distribute abortion-inducing items.

No prior administration in US history has funded UNFPA Supplies. This is largely due to the organization's support for abortion, its connection with China's population-controlling policies, and the UN's desire to push pro-life countries to legalize abortion.

Among other things, the UNFPA is known to distribute portable abortion devices called manual vacuum aspirator kits, and the abortion drugs misoprostol and mifepristone.

The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and MSI Reproductive Health (formerly Marie Stopes International) are two of the organizations that receive materials from UNFPA.
