IMF AND UN REVEAL PRO-ABORTION AGENDA
WASHINGTON, DC, Feb 12 (LSN) - Once again this year, US pro-life Republicans, led by New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith, said they would attach language banning abortion funding to a funding proposal for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the UN. Last year the pro-life rider made the proposed US contributions to the IMF and the UN unworkable, since the organizations are so deeply involved in the provision of abortion. The pro-life rider will similarly stop US funding this year, since the IMF and UN are holding firmly to their abortion mandate.
Interestingly, a campaign to pressure the US to fund the IMF and the UN despite their pushing of abortion has been launched. Yesterday a group of high-profile IMF supporters took out full- page ads in the New York Times, The Washington Post and the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call, urging members of Congress to approve the $18 billion for the IMF and to pay “dues” to the United Nations. The group of more than 150 supporters included former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford
