SPUC calls for removal of UNFPA funding
Comment Email Print
 The Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child has called for UK and EU members states to stop funding the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). In a statement released in London prior to his departure for the forthcoming Johannesburg Earth Summit, SPUC delegate Peter C Smith, claimed monies which funded UNFPA projects would be better spent "on real development". According to Mr Smith recent World Bank statistics indicated that more women in countries such as China and Vietnam had better access to contraception than they had to safe fresh water. "Both China and Vietnam have coercive one and two-child policies, which are co-managed by UNFPA. The rates of 'contraceptive prevalence' in these countries will include forced sterilisation and the forced fitting of abortifacients such as IUDs," he claimed. "The UK and other EU member states should take away UNFPA's funding and spend it on real development instead, such as giving a proper safe water-source to those Chinese and Vietnamese people who don't have one."
