Front Royal, VA, 12/03/08 – The Population Research Institute has launched the first in a series of short videos, aimed at documenting the UNFPA’s link with human rights abuses in a number of countries.
"As a result of PRI’s investigation, which revealed the connections between the UNFPA and China’s brutal one-child policy, and coupled with the UNFPA’s refusal to withdraw from that country, the U.S. has denied funding to the U.N. organization for seven years running," says Steven Mosher, PRI’s president. "With Barack Obama now threatening to reinstate this funding, it is time to reexamine the evidence of the UNFPA’s involvement in human rights abuses. Our new video shows how the UNFPA’s true agenda – population control – has not changed over the years."
The video series is entitled "Exposure – Investigative Realism from PRI," and four episodes will be released between now and the first of the year on PRI’s YouTube page.
"These videos are designed to make the critical information PRI has gathered from on-the-ground investigations accessible to anyone with a computer," says Colin Mason, PRI’s media director. "PRI has done a lot of work around the world, and we have seen first-hand the damage that the UNFPA has done to families and cultures. Our videos are intended to educate the public about the continuing threat that the UNFPA poses to children, families, and cultures."
"The world does not need a global population control agency," says Mosher. "With couples around the globe self-regulating their fertility downwards, it is time not to refund the UNFPA, but to shut it down permanently."
