Theresa May pledges £200 MILLION for family planning in Africa

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, has announced a new initiative which will see £200 million spent on family planning in Africa and Asia. The Prime Minister announced the creation of the Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH) programme during a visit to Kenya. It will "target women and girls in rural and poor communities who have traditionally been hardest to reach, will provide mobile clinics and contraceptive materials such as pills, condoms and implants." The UK Government's misguided, corrupt policy of spending vast sums of aid money on pushing contraception and abortion on developing nations continues...

 

These millions of pounds could be better spent on eradicating hunger and building sustainable centres in order to battle poverty in these developing countries. Taking the money of people, who are incredibly less fortunate than ourselves, to tear their babies, limb from limb, and cause long-term physical and mental damage to these women is selfish, vindictive, inhumane and deadly. Abortion kills babies, hurts women and can even kill women also. Abortion racism is once again exposed with this initiative – targeting black women and their black children.  

 

Lucrative abortion industry

 

In one year alone the boss of Marie Stopes International (hereinafter Marie Stopes) got paid over £420,000, 4 times what Theresa May herself got paid, and 22 of its employees got over £100,000.  According to an article in the Times Marie Stopes’ concentration on overseas projects lead to its leadership neglecting services in Britain but “banking huge salaries.” Therefore, Marie Stopes clearly don’t care about women, babies or families in Britain or elsewhere. Their only focus is profit – mere paper over the wellbeing and lives of human beings.

 

Marie Stopes are massively benefiting from this funding pledged by Theresa May. Marie Stopes recently boasted that it "provided or supported more than 4.1 million safe abortion and post-abortion care services in 2017, a 12% increase on the previous year", estimating that it will help “avert 2.6 million unintended pregnancies and 1.7 million unsafe abortions."

 

Britain is already the second biggest funder of family planning programmes in the world - in the last five years it has given Marie Stopes alone £163.01 million. The organisation's recent financial report revealed that the UK's Department for International Development (DFID) was the single biggest donor, granting £44 million, contributing to it posting a record income of £296.1 million. This is despite a ComRes poll showing that 65% of the public oppose UK taxpayer money being spent on abortions overseas.

  

Money not well spent

 

The UK's Department for International Development are pushing the abortion agenda at the expense of women's lives. As Donna Harrison, M.D, president, American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said in a letter to the Office of the UN High Commission on Human Rights, "abortion, spontaneous and induced, accounts for less than 5 percent of maternal mortality. It is scientifically, medically, and morally unacceptable to divert resources from interventions proven to reduce maternal mortality to the provision of abortion, under the guise of 'decreasing unsafe abortion.' The better way to reduce the human rights dimension of maternal mortality is to provide resources targeting the causes of 90 percent of maternal mortality."
