In lock step with third world dictators.

Attacking contraception is not solving a problem, it is making it worse. Ending contraception creates 'the baby maker environment' when women cannot be a dependable employee whether married or not. This is hostile toward women and sets them up for failure.

Marriages will fail when Trump achieves his goal of no abortion and no contraception. There were reasons for prostitutes at the temples in the days gone by.

Right on the heels (click here) of his facetious choice to dedicate the month of April to sexual assault awareness (yeah, right), Donald Trump, who lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by 2,864,974 votes, has revoked US funding for the United Nations Population Fund, which provides... birth control.

The Trump administration informed Congress on Monday that it had terminated United States funding for the United Nations Population Fund, the world’s leading provider of family planning services, including contraception, to women in at least 155 countries.

The United States is one of the top donor nations to the United Nations, and the denial of funding was one of President Trump’s biggest moves yet to reduce financing for family planning.

This almost escaped my notice entirely when it came on NPR this morning, because I heard "UN organization" and assumed it was linked to the global gag rule, which bans US funding for global NGOs that provide abortion services. The Obama administration struck down that rule, but Donald "Friend to Women" Trump reinstated it almost immediately after taking office....

We already know lack of contraception leads to large families and poverty.
