United Nations leaders are pushing through a $2 billion spending plan for the coronavirus that includes funding to abort unborn babies in elective abortions.
According to C-Fam, abortions are considered “essential” in the new proposal by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
The plan is supposed to provide funding for developing countries to buy medical supplies, food and other basic resources during the pandemic. However, C-Fam discovered that “sexual and reproductive health and rights” also are listed as a key priority in the plan.
“[The plan] calls on the humanitarian response to be guided by ‘Minimum Initial Service Package’ or MISP, for reproductive health in emergencies,” according to the pro-life organization. “The UN manual which contains the MISP says that medical personnel should refer for abortions even against their consciences. Guterres’ plan also allocates $140 million to the pro-abortion UN population fund.”
The World Health Organization also is promoting non-essential, elective abortions as an “essential service” during the health crisis.
Here’s more from the report:
“Women’s choices and rights to sexual and reproductive health care should be respected irrespective of COVID-19 status, including access to contraception and safe abortion to the full extent of the law,” the WHO manual reads, after pointing out that there are no known complications related to pregnancy from the novel coronavirus.
Last week, a WHO staffer said the WHO has been working to ensure abortion drugs are considered “essential”during a webinar hosted by a pro-abortion journal. She praised abortion groups urging governments to designate abortion “essential.” She also promoted the WHO’s official view that where access to abortion is difficult, women should self-administer abortions.
America gives huge amounts of money to the United Nations. However, President Donald Trump and his administration have been pushing back aggressively against the United Nations’ pro-abortion agenda, insisting that countries support women and children, born and unborn.

In 2017, Trump stopped giving tax dollars to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) because it pushes abortions on other countries and has worked with China for decades to implement its forced abortion population control policies. Trump renewed the order again in 2018 and 2019. The decision cut $32.5 million in funding from the UNFPA budget.
Still, it appears that more needs to be done. Abortion groups receive funding from many different sources, both government and private; and cutting off taxpayer funding to abortions entirely is not easily done. And while the Trump administration has been working to restore a culture of life at the United Nations, there are many other countries and activists trying to do the exact opposite.
There is nothing essential about aborting an unborn baby. Abortions destroy unborn babies’ lives and often put their mothers at risk. The world’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been to devote huge amounts of resources and sacrifice greatly to save human lives. If only society would make similar efforts to save babies in the womb.
