Saddened but not surprised Biden Restored WHO Funding

“It’s sad but hardly surprising,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., in response to the news that the Biden Administration will restore $200 million in funding to the World Health Organization cut by President Trump last year.

Trump cited WHO’s abysmal record of supporting China on its handling of the coronavirus. Morse observed,

“The WHO essentially acted as an adjunct of Beijing by initially downplaying the seriousness of the crisis and then covering up the communist regime’s gross mishandling of the pandemic.

“The WHO went along with China’s opposition to a travel ban — which would have saved millions of lives, had it been put into effect early on. In December 2019, the WHO even denied that human-to-human transmission was possible, again following the party line.

“Beyond COVID-19, WHO has become a relentless champion of abortion worldwide. In a 2012 publication, it said 47,000 die each year, and another 5 million are disabled, due to what it calls ‘unsafe abortion.’ The WHO further claimed that ‘Access to safe elective abortion early in pregnancy could prevent nearly every one of these deaths.’ Needless to say, the Ruth Institute categorically rejects WHO’s specious arguments.”

Morse commented,

“Just as the WHO acts as a rubber-stamp for China on COVID-19, it’s a megaphone for the Planned Parenthood Federation on what it euphemistically designates ‘reproductive health.’”

“In reality, abortion is never safe for the unborn child or for society,” Morse said.

“In America, ‘safe, elective abortion,’ has led to such horrors as late-term abortion, abortions performed on minors without parental consent, abortion as a form of birth control, violating conscience rights and the sale of fetal body parts.

“Since there’s no daylight between the Biden administration and the abortion lobby, it’s not exactly shocking that restoring funding to the World Health Organization was one of Biden’s first moves as president. While abortion advocates are thrilled, the American people — including mothers and children — are not well-served by this decision.”
