34 Million Friends and I personally mourn the passing of the Director of UNFPA, Dr. Babtunde Osotimehin, today, June 5, 2017. He was a great family man and a dedicated champion of the health, liberty, and equality for the world's women and girls. This is a great loss for the world.  Jane Roberts 

Wondrful article about his life. http://www.passblue.com/2017/06/05/babatunde-osotimehin-unfpa-head-since-2011-dies-suddenly-at-68/     

 

President Trump has formally refused a US contribution to the UN Population Fund

Message from Jane Roberts as of April 4, 2017

It is tragic that under President Trump, the U.S. has defunded the United Nations Population Fund. This action was expected but is still shocking and ugly and based on lies. UNFPA offers safe childbirth, contraception/family planning, and battles against all forms of gender based violence including female genital mutilation, child marriage, sexual assault, sex trafficking and honor killings. It trains doctors to repair obstetric fistulas.

We the people can step into the breach. Instead of asking 34 million people for $1 as we did in 2002 when George W. Bush withheld $34 million, this time Lois Abraham and I are asking for $34. You can find $34 (17 people, two dollars each)! (But any amount is terrific.) We can spread the word in all of our creative ways. We can email everyone who was at the March on January 21. We can take a stand for the women of the world. We can do this, YES WE CAN!

Statement by Jane: Gender inequality is the moral scourge and the moral 
challenge of the age. The United Nations Population Fund is at the core
of the fight for women’s health, education, human rights and equality.
It is the most noble of all causes and most important going forward for
people, the planet and peace.
