Republicans Advance a Bill Defunding U.N. Population Agency

(CNSNews.com) – U.S. House Republicans fired another shot across the bow of the United Nations Wednesday, advancing a bill to defund a U.N. agency accused of complicity in China’s coercive population control policies.

By a 23-17 vote along party lines, the House Foreign Relations Committee approved a bill, introduced by freshman Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.), that would save $400 million over ten years in funding to the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA).

The 1985 “Kemp-Kasten amendment” prohibits federal funding for any agency that “supports or participates in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.” Citing the amendment and China’s “one-child” policy, President Bush defunded the UNFPA from 2002 to 2008. President Obama restored funding soon after taking office.

  1. Never mind defunding , how about we think of departing from the useless UN ? The UN would collapse if we the fools stopped funding it and giving hundreds of countries a free ride. An added benefit would be the loss of the propaganda pulpit used by the despotic dictators and radical Muslims to spread hatred and lies trashing the Western nations that foot the operating expenses.
