UNC receives Gates Foundation grant to help tackle reproductive health issues facing urban poor
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has received more than $22 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for a new project that aims to improve the reproductive health of the urban poor in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
I expect to meet with much hostility over opposing this kind of research. “Its science you Ludite” or words to that effect. However the mindset that we’re fighting is that abortion is a regular form of health care – code named “reproductive health programs”. (BTW “family planning” means contraceptives in this same code.)
Opposing “reproductive health care” is not to oppose fresh water, air pollution prevention, famine relief, stable governments, debt forgiveness or crop assistance. However the abortion mindset infects and bleeds money from these programs. It also literally bleeds life from peoples who don’t want or need abortion; they want and need our effective charity.
It took me about 3 minutes to discover that the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) is active in encouraging abortions. From a past workshop:
This workshop therefore aimed to get policy makers and donors to prioritize family planning and reproductive health programs in their allocation of funds. http://www.aphrc.org/section.asp?ID=5
The Population Reference Bureau is no better. Their website has a study listed under its program for Reproductive Health.
At an average supply cost of US$1.55 per user annually, it offers a safe, affordable, and effective way for governments to reduce maternal and child illness and deaths, as well as reduce national health expenditures on reproductive and children’s health problems. http://www.prb.org/Reports/2009/fpsl.aspx
This is – in a word – tragic. Contracept and abort babies so you won’t have to watch them get sick or die later. Its making a human life a commodity.
