Dutch Government To Set Up International Abortion Fund To Counteract Donald Trump's Ban

Dutch minister Lilanne Ploumen has proposed a fund in the Netherlands to help women's health charities, in a bid to undercut the recently reinstated Mexico City Policy under Trump






The Netherlands is seeking to set up an overseas abortion fund to counteract Donald Trump’s recent ban against funding international groups which give women information about terminations.



Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Lilianne Ploumen for the Dutch government has announced she intends to establish an international fund which would finance projects relating to access for birth control, abortion and women’s education, throughout developing countries.
Ms Ploumen announced the plan in reaction to an extensive memorandum signed by Mr Trump to restrict access to information on abortion for women who are in receipt of aid from international development groups.


Known as the Mexico City Policy and also as ‘the global gag rule’, the ban was one of Mr Trump’s first actions upon entering office last week. It prohibits US funding for any international aid groups which give women information about abortion, even if they do not perform the procedures.
Ms Ploumen said the fund could be supported by governments, businesses and social organisations concerned by the US President’s actions in order to “compensate this financial setback as much as possible.”

Just thinking, why have unprotected sexual intercourse when you are not ready to have a baby. For rape cases, I can understand. Apart from rape cases and fetus with genetic/chromosomal abnormalities whose parents want to abort, the rest shouldn't even have any form of funding at all. They should pay with their money.

Modern day Sodom and Gommorrah. First time I saw 2 dudes openly kissing was in 2003 at the Schihpol airport. To say I was stunned is an understatement. Nearly puked at the sight of them. Let them continue in willful sin..... On the last day, we shall all give account.
