I write to share an Op Ed I authored that appeared in today’s Roll Call entitled
The U.S. Action Endangering Mothers Worldwide laying out the dangers faced by women and girls around the world as a result of the Trump Administration’s
decision to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations Population Fund, or UNFPA. UNFPA provides critical healthcare for women living in areas of conflict and disaster around the world, delivering maternal care to 9 million women last year. Eliminating U.S.
funding will have a devastating impact on the ability of UNFPA to continue doing its life-saving work.
