Why do those who claim to be “pro-choice” favor coercive population control?
President Trump has cut funding to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), a group that promotes abortion and coercive population control. The Stream’s Anika Smith highlighted some of the reasons why we should applaud this decision:
The U.N. agency has been linked with human rights abuses around the world, including forced sterilizations and abortions in China.
Forced abortions and sterilizations were uncovered by pro-life journalists in China as recently as 2009. Since Reagan, only the Obama administration has funded the population control group.
Remember that China still imposes a strict legal maximum on the number of children each couple can have. The One Child policy caused the rapid aging of its population and a yawning shortage of girls. So China’s autocrats raised that limit from one child to two. (How generous of them.) Women who exceed their quota face crippling fines or prison.
