UNITED NATIONS, Nov 17, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Despite international criticism over the distribution of “reproductive health kits” in Kosovo which included abortifacient drugs (“emergency contraception”) and devices (IUD’s), condoms and vacuum devices that could be used for abortions, the United Nations Population Fund has announced it is now sending such kits to East Timor and Orissa, India. While the kits also contain needed supplies for safe home delivery, UNFPA has been criticized for exploiting the dire need of these communities by adding to their “donation” of needed supplies, unwanted devices geared to population control.
LifeSite reported in April that a causal factor in the killings which took place in Kosovo was the massive depopulation experienced by the Serbs under its Marxist regime and the comparative population explosion in Kosovo. Kosovo, populated largely by Muslim and Catholic Albanians (both valuing large families), has experienced a population boom with 35,000 people added to their number every year in recent years, while Serbians found their numbers dwindling with over 15,000 more deaths than births per year. Population Research Institute exposed evidence that UNFPA was providing reproductive health kits in Kosovo and only Kosovo, with the consent and approval of the Serbian government, which was intent on depopulating Kosovo.
It is important to note that UN statistics show that East Timor also has a high fertility rate, far greater than the 2.1 replacement rate recommended by the UN.
Statistics for 1990-‘95 show that the fertility rate or average number of births per woman in East Timor was 4.766.
