World Health Organization attempt to push abortion on Ecuador as part of COVID-19 ‘crisis response plan’

The World Health Organization (WHO), the UN group in charge of advising countries on the COVID-19 pandemic, has provided a crisis response plan for Ecaudor that prioritises providing abortion in the country. 

The United Nation’s $46 million plan included just over $10 million allocated for aiding Ecuador’s health systems. 

Of that, $3 million is set aside to support sexual and reproductive health services, calling for the use of the UN’s “Minimum Initial Services Package” (MISP) to fulfill one of the plan’s main objectives, “safe and legal abortion”.

The MISP includes a variety of materials used for abortion, such as vacuumm extractors, tools for dilation and curettage, cranioclasts, and abortificients and is administered by the UNFPA – a historically pro-abortion branch of the United Nations. 

In response to a request from USAID to remove abortion from their coronavirus response plan, Stephane Dujarric, UN spokesman, stated: “Any suggestion that we are using the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to promote abortion is not correct… we do not seek to override any national laws.” 

However, in Ecuador abortion is illegal outside of extreme circumstances. In fact, in 2019 an attempt to legalize abortion in Ecuador on grounds of rape failed. 

According to Elyssa Koren, Director of United Nations Advocacy for ADF International, the WHO’s plans are not only untimely, but “an egregious violation of state sovereignty.” She goes on further to say “The abortion debate falls squarely within the country’s domestic jurisdiction – it is a matter for Ecuadorians to determine for Ecuador.”

Dear reader

Thanks to the support from people like you, last year a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s flagship Domestic Abuse Bill with two extreme abortion proposals failed, in a major pro-life victory.

Unfortunately, this is not the end for our opposition.

We are currently facing major threats on five separate fronts:

  1. Pro-abortion MP Rupa Huq has brought forward an amendment to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill to introduce a jail term of up to two years if a pro-lifer offers support or advice to a woman near an abortion clinic. This is a threat to unborn babies and to freedom of speech.
  2. The assisted suicide lobby has brought forward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which was introduced to the House of Lords on 26 May.
  3. The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland.
  4. The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.
  5. The abortion lobby is expected to make another attempt to change abortion law to allow abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth.

If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. 

Fighting both the abortion and assisted suicide lobbies over this period has already made a huge dent in Right To Life UK's limited resources.

To cover this gap and ensure we effectively defeat these proposals during this period, we must raise at least £200,000.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will make a significant difference.

By stopping these threats, YOU can save lives over this coming period.

Will you make a special gift right now to help protect vulnerable lives from these threats?
