Help China help itself – Kerry Kennedy

From the Los Angeles Times:

As international leaders gathered Thursday at the United Nations to address plans to eradicate global poverty, the Bush administration notified that it will withhold the U.S. contribution ($34 million) to the U.N. Population Fund for the fourth consecutive year.

This aid provides vital services for the world’s poorest and girls, so why would the U.S. fail to help? Because, despite the U.S. claims to the contrary, the administration asserts that the fund supports China’s forced sterilization . The is, in order to change that policy, should support the population fund, not cripple it.
