.- A pro-life organization has launched an initiative to put an end to U.S. taxpayer support for abortions abroad.

The Population Research Institute (PRI) notes that U.S. law forbids American organizations, funded by taxpayer dollars, to support abortion overseas. There are two U.S. laws on the books that regulate this activity called the Tiahrt and Kemp-Kasten amendments.

Yet, some U.S.-based groups continue to lobby for legal abortion in developing countries, specifically in Latin America. In some cases, the pro-abortion lobby is even trying to coerce women into having abortions. According to PRI, these groups offer women incentives to have abortions in order to attain the results they want.

PRI’s Latin American Initiative was designed to put a stop to this activity by teaching human rights leaders in those countries about what U.S. groups can and cannot do abroad. The objective is to make this illegal activity known and to cut taxpayer funding to these pro-abortion groups for overseas activities.

PRI produced two videos about their mission which they have posted on YouTube.com. The videos focus on the way that abortion is coercively used to change the cultures in the countries where organizations such as Planned Parenthood are trying to expand. Each video runs about five minutes.

The Population Research Institute (PRI) was founded in 1989 by Fr. Paul Marx, OSB, PhD and is dedicated to:
• ending human rights abuses committed in the name of "family planning"
• opposing outdated social and economic paradigms premised on the myth of overpopulation
• informing the public about the social and economic benefits of moderate population growth
• promoting pro-natal and pro-family attitudes and policies worldwide.
