Services will include contraceptives, some of which are abortifacient

Eight African countries are now on the list to receive funds from the UN, allegedly to "manage growth" of their populations. This is a euphemism, used to cover the promotion of abortion and contraception.

Unfortunately, family planning usually means pills and abortions.

NEW YORK, NY (Catholic Online) - In an announcement made last Friday, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFP) said it will provide funds to eight African countries to improve access to what it calls reproductive health services for women and girls.

That means, the promotion of abortion and contraception. In their annual reports they now routinely refer to contraception as a "human right". Ironically, they do not recognize the first right, the Right to life of a child in the womb.  

The countries listed are: Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Tanzania.The fund will provide money for what this organization calls education and family planning - that means contraceptives. The fund says it is dedicated to "voluntary family planning" and also says it is dedicated to the "prevention of abortion."

Of course, the lies often behind this claim have been exposed repeatedly by organizations which defend the fundamental human right to life of children in the womb. The UNFPF walks in lock step with Planned Parenthood. One has only to read thir annual reports to see they are rooted in the same Anti-Life ideology. They embrace the language and the ideology of the culture of death and use.

While authentic educational programs concerning reproduction and life friendly means of planning for a family would be desireable, the fact is there is a political, cultural and social agenda behind much of what this organization does.
According to the UNFPA, there are 222 million women "who would like to avoid or delay a pregnancy."

What is key is that women are respected and pregancny is presented as a gift and not a disease. Also, that planning a family is seen in the proper context and not reduced to a problem used to present an ideology which is anti-life and anti- woman. not equated with ataught family planning methods that do not interfere with natural processes that are inherent to humanity. The well-being of all is best influenced by promotion of a life-affirming culture rather than a culture of death that is dependent on ingesting chemicals which can promote abortions. .

Pumping children full of chemicals, and perpetuating the false dichotomy between family planning and responsible motherhood and fatherhood is both dangerous and costly. Instead of abortions, agencies both national and international, should strive to assist girls and women in true education, especially after pregnancy, as well as family friendly assistance which is aimed at helping them to break the cycle of poverty.

Evidence suggests that better educated women contribute much more to economies and plan families better than those lacking education. All of this is possible using existing monies, educational infrastructure, and natural family planning methods. We need to promote a culture of life and solidarity - not a culture of death, use and abuse.

Money spent on contraceptive devices, abortions and sterilizations promotes everything which is contrary to true "reproductive rights". They could better be used to help to run schools and teach people, both male and female, how to make better decisions about reproductive activity, encourage abstinence, promote monogamour marriage, reduce the incidence of HIV infection, and encourage people to be more responsible and productive.

As a nation, we should promote family life and encourage responsible parenting, not undermine them both while using words which sound lofty but can end up promoting evil. 

Ultimately, a decision must be made to either promote false solutions which do not help - and can be deadly - or truly begin to deal with the underlying causes. The world needs more education, more compassion, and not abortion and contraception.

The UN plans to extend the program to other countries if it is what they deem to be "successful." Watch out for the use of such words by organizations like UNFP, they can be dangerous.
