Trump has defunded UN Population Fund

All funding to the UN’s Family Planning Agency has been cut. This is truly detrimental to the lives of women globally.

The agencies funding has prevented an estimated 320,000 unintended pregnancies, averted almost 100,000 unsafe abortions, prevented about 10,000 maternal deaths, and enabled about 800,000 people to have access to contraception.

And this was just in 2016.
