Daily Action 4/10/17


Last week, the Trump administration defunded the United Nations Population Fund, the largest international maternal health organization on the planet, which provides family planning and reproductive health services in more than 150 countries. This includes emergency obstetric care, midwife training, and fistula repair. (US Withdraws Funding for United Nations Population Fund)

Last year, the United States’ contribution of $69 million–or the price of roughly 35 taxpayer-funded weekends at Mar a Lago–helped prevent roughly 10,000 maternal deaths and 100,000 unsafe abortions.

Today’s Daily Action is to ask your Member of Congress to state public support for the United Nations Population Fund. Women’s lives depend on it.
