China - Biden backtracks but fails to persuade: UNFPA and IPPF

MEDIA ADVISORY, Aug. 25, 2011/Christian Newswire --

Clobbered by criticism, the Obama Administration has newly declared that it "strongly opposes all aspects of China's coercive birth limitation policies, including forced abortion and forced sterilization." Vice President Biden has called these practices "repugnant." These proclamations were made in an effort to backtrack from Biden's most recent gaffe, stating that he "fully understands" China's One Child Policy and does not "second-guess" it.

By making these statements, the Obama administration has now publicly admitted it knows that forced abortion and forced sterilization are official "policies" of the Chinese Communist Party, not random acts carried out by overzealous officials, as contended by the CCP. This is progress.

Should we believe that this administration "strongly opposes" these practices?

Actions speak louder than words. If the Obama administration "strongly opposes" forced abortion in China, then why did they restore funding to UNFPA (United Nations Family Planning Fund), an "abortion provider" in China?

In 2001, the U.S. cut funding to UNFPA because an investigation, headed by then Secretary of State Colin Powell, found that UNFPA was complicit in the coercive implementation of China's One Child Policy. In 2008, the U.S. State Department reaffirmed that determination, and yet the Obama administration resumed funding in 2009. President Obama's FY 2012 budget requests $47 million for UNFPA.

The current administration also funds the International Planned Parenthood Federation. The IPPF works hand in hand with the coercive Chinese Communist population control machine. Their website declares, "The China Family Planning Association (CFPA) plays a very important role in China's family planning programme. It supports the present family planning policy of the government...."

In China, a woman's body is not her own. It is the domain of the State. To fund organizations that work hand in glove with China's "womb police" does not constitute "strong opposition" to forced abortion and forced sterilization. Rather it constitutes complicity.

If the Obama administration is sincere in saying it "strongly opposes... forced abortion and sterilization," then it will either insist that UNFPA and IPPF cease operation in China, or it will defund these organizations.
