UNICEF creates alliance with abortion supporters “to combat infant mortality”

.- UNICEF, the UN agency created to protect childhood, has joined forces with pro-abortion entities in order to “combat infant mortality” and improve women’s and children’s health. 

The agency has launched a new campaign which includes promoting “safe abortion” and is joint effort with the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the UN Population Fund, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and others. The director of Fundacion Vida in Spain, Manuel Cruz, said the campaign includes the promotion of “safe abortion” and is being led by the executive vice director of UNICEF, Kul Gautam.  The initiative also has the support of organizations in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Bangladesh.

Fundacion Vida said that while the purpose of the campaign is fight against the illnesses that affect mothers, the mechanism being used is that of widening women’s access to “professional care,” including “services before and during pregnancy, during the post-partum period, as well as safe abortion.”

Cruz denounced the ideological slant in favor of abortion that prevailed during the recent congress Women Deliver, at which “the true needs of healthcare for mothers and children” were ignored.

“Of the 98 sessions that took place during three days, 35 were on the promotion of abortion, while only six addressed improvement in medical care for births, three addressed neo-natal medical care and one addressed access to gynecological services,” Cruz said.
