The British government last year gave £13 million to two large international abortion providers and £20 million to the United Nations Population Fund, it has been revealed.
In answer to a parliamentary question May 2, Baroness Northover, speaking on behalf of the government, said that in 2013/14 the British taxpayer has provided “Marie Stopes International with £4.35 million and International Planned Parenthood Federation with £8.6 million of funding through Programme Partnership Arrangement (PPA) grants.”
Continuation of this funding “has been provisionally agreed for 2014/15 and 2015/16,” she said. The funding is provided through the Department for International Development.
Baroness Northover also said the British government has provided the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) with “£20 million of core funding each year for the period 2010/11to 2013/14” and says it plans to provide “the same in 2014/15 subject to satisfactory progress on key reforms.”
The UNFPA declared artificial contraception a “human right” in 2012.
Details of the parliamentary question were revealed by the Catholic Union of Great Britain.
