4 Pro-Life Accomplishments During Trump's First 100 Days

3. Defunding the United Nations Population Fund

In early April, the Trump State Department announced that it cut off U.S. funding to the UNFPA because it "supports, or participates in the management of, a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization."

The UNFPA has long been accused of promoting abortion oversees and partnering with the government agency that promotes China's abusive and coercive One-Child Policy.

The program was given over $340 million U.S. tax dollars during the years of the Obama presidency.

"For nearly a decade under President Obama, American taxpayers funded UNFPA, which has a long history of involvement in China's brutal birth limitation policy — enforcement of which routinely includes the atrocity of forced abortions," the list states.

"That changed on April 4, 2017, when President Trump invoked the Kemp-Kasten Amendment to cut off U.S. taxpayer funding of the UNFPA," it continued. "The Kemp-Kasten Amendment gives the President the authority to determine whether an organization should be defunded because it "supports or participates in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization."
