The abortion industry wants to use climate change funding to expand abortion

According to C-Fam, abortionists are claiming that climate change negatively impacts the ability of a woman to access abortion. As a result, they’re vying to use funding meant for climate change to help boost access to abortion — in other words, to boost their own financial profit.

A coalition of more than 60 pro-abortion organizations penned a letter to Alok Sharma, president of the UN Cop26 climate conference requesting that the United Kingdom change its funding eligibility rules to allow reproductive healthcare programs to receive funds meant for combating climate change.

“Billions are allocated now to climate financing, adaptation and resilience. We’re hearing loud and clear from communities and women and our clients who are most affected by climate crisis that what they really want is access to reproductive healthcare, so that they can make choices about when or whether they have children,” said Bethan Cobley, a director of abortion giant MSI Reproductive Choices, formerly Marie Stopes International.

MSI Reproductive Choices has been caught committing illegal abortions in Africa. In addition, according to the Right to Life UK, all 70 Marie Stopes clinics had a policy in place that included sales tactics to convince women to have abortions, calling those who had chosen life to try to persuade them to come in for another appointment to discuss abortion. Another report discovered nearly 400 botched abortions had taken place at Marie Stopes clinics in just two months.

Women in African nations do not include contraception and abortion at the top of their priority list, as has been pointed out numerous times by Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa. She has called contraception a “Western solution” to African poverty, and considers the Western push for abortion in Africa to be a form of colonization.

“If we’re talking about abortion, well, I don’t think that any Western country has a right to pay for abortions in an African country, especially when the majority of people don’t want abortion… That then becomes a form of ideological colonization,” said Ekeocha. She has also argued that population control programs send about two billion donated condoms to Africa each year at a cost of about $17 million — money that could be used to solve actual problems such as access to affordable food, clean water, health care, and education.

Yet, the UN continues to promote abortion around the world, and it appears its new move is to aid the abortion industry under the guise of addressing climate change. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) published “Five ways climate change hurts women and girls,” listing a disruption to “sexual and reproductive health” and limited access to contraception as two of the effects of climate change.

“As COVID-19 has shown, emergencies divert health-care resources toward fighting the latest threat and away from services deemed less essential,” said UNFPA. “Emergencies due to climate change will become more frequent, meaning sexual and reproductive health and rights services may be among the first to be curtailed.”

The organization went on to say that after Cyclone Idai hit Malawi in 2019, many areas were underwater and health providers were forced to use a helicopter to provide condoms to people — people who were suffering the devastation of a cyclone and likely needed access to clean drinking water, food, and shelter rather than condoms. There is a reason that abortion and contraception are not included on the “essentials” list when a crisis occurs — because they are not “essential” to anyone’s survival.

The UNFPA also argued that when crops fail due to climate change, women turn to sex work and therefore need contraception and abortion. Rather than helping these women recover their crops or income to remain in their homes as they wish, the UNFPA wants to give them condoms so they can earn money through sexual exploitation which leaves them at high risk of STDs, human trafficking, and physical abuse. Instead of helping them to avoid this horrific fate, the UNFPA helps them dive deeper into it.

Prostitution, sex trafficking, and abortion are all businesses that go hand in hand, and when condoms fail and women become pregnant or get STDs, abortion businesses like MSI Reproductive Choices profit from their misfortune.

The UN has an agenda to reduce certain populations by 2030, and expanding abortion is part of that agenda. The issue is not one of climate, but of a worldview that sees human beings as disposable, and as conduits of profit for an unaccountable worldwide abortion industry.
