Right to Life is opposed to our government funding a culture of death. The New Zealand taxpayer provided nearly $7,000.000 to the controversial United Nations Population fund [UNFPA] for the financial year 2016/17. Our total funding since 2014 is $21,500,080. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Murray McCully advised Right to Life on 1st March that the government has not yet made a decision to provide extra funding to UNFPA to assist in making up the shortfall resulting from the cessation of American funding.
The new Washington administration announced Monday it will cut off U.S. funding for the United Nations Population Fund, on the basis that the UNFPA’s activities in China are complicit with that nation’s coercive population control program, the implementation of which includes forced abortion and involuntary sterilization and infanticide.
