Obama Administration Gave Over $340 Million to UN Agency Complicit with China’s One-Child Policy



The following is an excerpt from an article by PRI Research Analyst Jonathan Abbamonte originally published with Townhall.

For decades, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has operated a family planning program in cooperation with the Government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) where human rights abuses, including forced abortion and forced sterilization, were rampant under the notorious one-child policy.

A recent report from the U.S. Department of State now shows that the Obama administration in its last year obligated $68 million in federal funding to the controversial U.N. agency. Altogether, since 2009, the Obama administration has given over $340 million to the UNFPA in either disbursements or obligations.

“The American taxpayer should not be forced to foot the bill for a U.N. agency that has aided and abetted China’s coercive family planning program,” says Population Research Institute President Steven Mosher.
