USAID denies funding to international abortion group complicit in coercive abortions

Washington DC, Oct 4, 2008 / 07:19 am (CNA).- Assistant Administrator for Global Health Dr. Kent Hill with the U.S. Agency for International Development has denied funding to the UK-based abortion organization Marie Stopes International (MSI) on the grounds that it is complicit in “coercive abortion and involuntary sterilizations” in China.

MSI has denied the accusations, the Population Research Institute (PRI) reports in its weekly briefing.

PRI president Steven W. Mosher applauded the decision, saying MSI’s “aggressive promotion of abortion, and its longstanding collaboration with China’s coercive program leave little doubt that it is not only aware of the massive human rights abuses that have resulted in that country, but is actively collaborating with it.”
