By 2050 Population in Undeveloped countries will have increased by more than 5 billion
US Funding for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) would have been $84 million in 2002-03. By 2010 there still had been no funding.
$84 mil. would have been a paltry sum and totally inadequate anyway.

Let us prevent far more suffering by
financing FULL Family Planning.

Denial of this funding will cost thousands of women their lives
( and caused 2 million unwanted pregnancies in the year 2003 alone ).

201 million women in low-income countries would use safe, effective contraceptive methods but such methods are not available to them, including 25 percent of married women in sub-Saharan Africa.
If these women had access to reliable family planning services, approximately 52 million unplanned pregnancies would be avoided in the developing world every year.
But instead there are:

bullet23 million unplanned births,
bullet22 million induced abortions,
bullet7 million spontaneous abortions,
bullet1.4 million infant deaths,
bullet142,000 pregnancy-related deaths, and
bullet505,000 children who lose their mothers.

Meanwhile in the year 2003 the Netherlands (of all countries) pledged $50.3 million. Their contribution accounted for some 19 per cent of UNFPA’s mere $256 mil general resources. For the past several years, UNFPA official development assistance has dropped significantly.

It's not leveling to 9 billion, it's looking like 11 BIllion People . Finance FULL Family Planning.

Plastic Bag Myth

Stay informed on Facebook:

Apr 30th 2003, Bush, on the $15 billion AIDS aid: "When we see this kind of preventable suffering. When we see a plague leaving graves and orphans across a continent, we must act". But George, don't you know that whilst AIDS will be contracted by 28 million between 2000 & 2020, unwanted births will be over 200 million ? There's your "preventable suffering". No kudos to Bush on allowing condom distribution, the reality is that the legislation requires both financial and physical separation of AIDS prevention work and family-planning work. This would require TWO clinics in every community, not a likely possibility in a poor village!
In April 2002, official government fact-finding teams from Great Britain and the United States traveled to China and found "no evidence that the UN fund has knowingly supported or participated in the management of a program of "coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization" in China."
In fact the Chinese Government, has agreed to lift acceptor targets and birth quotas in the areas where UNFPA is working.
But  Powell said China was the reason he "must" deny aid to every country that is served by the fund, despite the State Department's own investigator's findings of UNFPA's non-involvement in China's One-Child policy.

Of the deprived children, born as a result of Bush's mis-calculated  policy, how many might become anti-American Terrorists?
 This unnecessary increase in 3rd-world population will occur despite causing a similar 77,000 increase in infant deaths as in 2003.

But after reluctantly signing the bill into law, Bush unexpectedly stopped payment on the money, under pressure from anti-abortion forces, even although a repeal of the Gag Rule was dropped from the Bill. This bill is still in limbo May 26, 2018.

  At the International Conference on Population and Development, governments estimated that basic reproductive health services, including family planning, prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, and population research and policy formulation would require funds  of  $17 -21  billion  per year

80 million pregnancies each year are unplanned.

More than 330 million people are infected with a sexually transmitted disease each year. Half of all new HIV infections occur in young people under age 25.
