COLOMBO, Oct 20 (LSN) – One of the world’s foremost promoters of abortion, the UN’s Population Fund, asserted that its new $7.6-million reproductive health care programme is aimed at trying to cut Sri Lanka’s abortion rate.

At a news conference in Columbo, the organization’s director, Nafis Sadik, proffered that legalizing abortions in some cases and providing access to family planning information and services would reduce the number of abortions in the country which she ‘estimated’ to be 500 per day. Capitalizing on the popular rhetoric about unsafe abortions Sadik urged officials to allow safe legal abortions in the country.
