As the United Nations continuous pushing abortion on an international level, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced that the United States will cut funding to their pro-abortion international agency.

For decades the United Nations and its various components have been involved in promoting abortion and even pushing population control and China’s population control policies. Pro-life Advocates have called for many years to cut funding to the agency because of its pushing of abortion on an international scale.

The United Nations has come under fire from many pro-life nations that don’t want to see abortion come to their countries. Ireland, Malta, Poland, and many other nations that have pro-life laws protecting unborn children have seen the United Nations accuse those nations of not respecting women or their health even though Women’s Health has benefited when pro-life laws are in place.

Here’s more on the defunding:

Just days after warning the United Nations the United States doesn’t pay to be be disrespected, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has announced a $235 million cut to UN Budget. The news comes after more than 100 countries voted to condemn the U.S. for officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol city of Israel. More from Fox News:

Calling it “a big step in the right direction,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday night announced a historic reduction in the U.N. biennial operating budget.

Haley said the plan calls for a $285 million cut for the 2018-19 fiscal year.

“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.”

She added, “This historic reduction in spending – in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable U.N. – is a big step in the right direction.”

The U.N. budget now covers a two-year period, beginning in January of an even-numbered year.

The announcement comes after negotiations with the UN Secretary General, who also proposed an additional $200 million in cuts.
