President Trump Defunds International Reproductive Health Organization

President Donald Trump has stopped all U.S. funds to the United Nations Population Fund. The populations fund is an international humanitarian organization that provides reproductive health care while working to end child marriage and female genital cutting in more than 150 countries.

I found this story interesting because I didn’t know about this organization until I read this story, which is pretty sad because it is doing some good work. Trump pulling U.S. funds means UNFPA will lose $76 million, making it even harder for it to do its work.

Some of this work includes family planning and contraception access. UNFPA does not provide or fund abortions.
