Population Fund for the past seven years, stands by its accusation that the UNFPA was—and is—involved in coercive abortions in China.</p > “Our investigation remains valid,” says Colin Mason, PRI’s media director. “We put boots on the ground, and made the results available to anyone who wanted them.
