    Your tax dollars at work. From the article:

    We are helping finance the infrastructure used in coercive family planning in China. The international community funds UNFPA (United Nations Family Planning Fund), as well as IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation) and Marie Stopes International. These organizations are operative "abortion providers" in China.
    In 2001, the US cut funding to UNFPA because an investigation, headed by then Secretary of State Colin Powell, found that UNFPA was complicit in the coercive implementation of China's One Child Policy. In 2008, the US State Department reaffirmed that determination, and yet we restored funding in 2009
