Human Rights Watch Post Discusses U.S. Decision To Again Withhold UNFPA Funding

Human Rights Watch: U.S. Blocks Funds to U.N. Population Fund — Again
Amanda Klasing, senior researcher in Human Rights Watch’s Women’s Rights Division, writes, “U.S. officials quietly renewed a decision made last year to block funding for the U.N. Population Fund — known as UNFPA. It’s hard to know exactly what justification the administration has advanced for this decision … However, the U.N. Population Fund has been told that, like last year, the Trump administration is claiming it violates the Kemp-Kasten amendment…” (3/16).
