Congressman Chip Roy has introduced a bill to stop funding the World Health Organization in part because the WHO promotes abortion.
Roy, a pro-life Republican from Texas, was joined by several of his House colleagues to introduce legislation to prohibit U.S. funding for the World Health Organization. The “No Taxpayer Funding for the World Health Organization Act” would prohibit the United States from providing assessed or voluntary to the WHO.
Abortion is part of the reason why Roy is putting the measure forward.
“Funneling millions of taxpayer dollars to the corrupt World Health Organization that serves the Chinese Communist Party is a slap in the face to hardworking American families struggling under record high inflation, and to all those whose lives and livelihoods were ruined and destroyed by the COVID pandemic,” he said.
“The WHO not only regularly promotes abortion and radical gender ideology but also praised China for their “leadership” at the beginning of COVID-19 and has done nothing to hold the CCP accountable for the spread of COVID-19. It is far past time for Congress to use its power of the purse to cut off US funding to this corrupt international body just like the Trump Administration did,” Roy added.
Congressman Roy is proud to be joined by Rep. McClintock (CA-05), Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Mary Miller (IL-15), Andrew Clyde (GA-09), Harshbarger (TN-01), Matt Rosendale (MT-02), Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14), Paul Gosar (AZ-09), Dan Bishop (NC-08), John Moolenaar (MI-02), Pat Fallon (TX-04), Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Wesley Hunt (TX-38), Huggins (LA-03), Greg Steube (FL-17) in introducing this legislation.

That isn’t all. The WHO also wants to curtail medical conscience rights and permit sex-selection abortion. Specifically, the organization wants to:
Allow abortion under all circumstances – ruling out laws banning terminations because the foetus is the ‘wrong’ sex;
Stop women requiring approval from a doctor or nurse to have a termination;
Roll out ‘pills by post’ schemes so that women can be sent abortion medication after a phone call;
Curtail medical professionals’ rights to refuse to take part in abortions on conscience grounds.
Because there can never be enough abortions, and the unborn have no rights that any born person is bound to respect.
During his time as president, President Donald Trump announced he would halt federal taxpayer funding for the WHO. In his first pro-abortion action as president, Joe Biden reversed that decision and restored taxpayer funding.
The WHO received heavy criticism when it falsely claimed abortion is considered an essential service during the coronavirus pandemic. It said that “services related to reproductive health are considered to be part of essential services during the COVID-19 outbreak.”
“Women’s choices and rights to sexual and reproductive health care should be respected, irrespective of whether or not she has a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection,” WHO said in the statement. Medical groups representing over 33,000 doctors disagree.
