The UNFPA, like other UN agencies, is funded by governments voluntarily and until now The US was one of the largest donors. Earlier this year, President Donald Trump reinstated a ban on US funding of any international organization that provided any kind of abortion service or advice. “This determination was made based on the fact that China’s family planning policies still involve the use of coercive abortion and involuntary sterilisation, and UNFPA partners on family planning activities with the Chinese government agency responsible for these coercive policies,” the state department said to explain the actual step. The money that had been allocated to the UNFPA for the fiscal year 2017 will be “transferred and reprogrammed to the Global Health Programs account,” the state department also said.
