President Trump continues his stellar record of going after the abortion industry, officially defunding the pro-abortion World Health Organization (WHO), defunding them of ALL U.S. taxpayer dollars.
WHO is under criticism for its mishandling of the coronavirus, likely due to its close ties to the Chinese Communist Party. WHO is also a pro-abortion, taxpayer-funded entity, and even said abortion is an essential ‘health care’ service during the coronavirus crisis.
CNN quotes President Trump as saying, “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving, urgent global public health needs.”
The United States is one of the largest contributors to WHO. The Kaiser Family Foundation reports, “In 2019, including assessed and voluntary contributions, the U.S. provided WHO an estimated $419 million. WHO reports that U.S. assessed and voluntary contributions together represented approximately 16% of WHO’s total revenue in the 2018-2019 biennium.”
This is an incredible victory for the pro-life movement. The United States should not be sending taxpayer dollars to entities that use it to commit or promote abortions.
