Get the U.S. Out of the United Nations Population Fund



The U.S. Government wastes billions on programs and initiatives that American taxpayers don’t want and certainly don’t need.

Under the new policy, married Chinese couples will be allowed not one, but two children. “The regime is backing away from draconian birth limits,” says Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute, “not because senior Party officials have suddenly developed a conscience.
