President Trump has formally refused a US contribution to the UN Population Fund
Message from Jane Roberts as of April 4, 2017
It is tragic that under President Trump, the U.S. has defunded the United Nations Population Fund. This action was expected but is still shocking and ugly and based on lies. UNFPA offers safe childbirth, contraception/family planning, and battles against all forms of gender based violence including female genital mutilation, child marriage, sexual assault, sex trafficking and honor killings. It trains doctors to repair obstetric fistulas.
We the people can step into the breach. Instead of asking 34 million people for $1 as we did in 2002 when George W. Bush withheld $34 million, this time Lois Abraham and I are asking for $34. You can find $34 (17 people, two dollars each)! (But any amount is terrific.) We can spread the word in all of our creative ways. We can email everyone who was at the March on January 21. We can take a stand for the women of the world. We can do this, YES WE CAN!
