One of the leading activists against forced abortions and population control in China is praising president Donald Trump for defunding the UNFPA.

The cut amounts to at least $32.5 million for the 2017; the department said it will redirect the funds to the U.S. Agency for International Development, which provides medical care to families across the world.
Reggie Littlejohn, founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, and one of the top activists against gendercide in China, told LifeNews she was elated that the Trump administration has announced that it will cut off U.S. funding for the UNFPA. She said the evidence is clear that “the UNFPA’s activities in China are complicit with that nation’s coercive population control program, the implementation of which includes forced abortion and involuntary sterilization.”
“We are thrilled that the U.S. is no longer funding forced abortion and involuntary sterilization in China. The blood of Chinese women and babies is no longer on our hands. My very first press release, in 2009, was entitled “You Are Funding Forced Abortions in China.” I have consistently advocated for the defunding of UNFPA over the years, most recently just a couple of weeks ago at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women,” she said.
