    A warning to Latin America.

    Trueman P

    In: Santamaria J, Richards P, Gibbon W, eds. The dignity of man and creative love: selected papers from the Congress for the family of the Americas, Guatemala, July 1980. New Haven, Connecticut, Knights of Columbus, 1980. 188-95.

    The USAID (U.S. Agency for International Development) has since 1960 promoted abortion worldwide, without concern for the laws, customs, or mores of foreign lands. USAID still promotes the sale and the use of Depo-Provera in Latin America. Depo-Provera, a drug that acts as a contraceptive and abortifacient, is considered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to be unsafe for birth control in the U.S. USAID also promotes the sale and the use of the Dalkon Shield type of IUD, which was recalled in the U.S. in 1975 for its hazardous side effects. Moreover, USAID supports abortion research worldwide; for example, there are 3 main USAID funded university research projects in the U.S., beside the London-Based IPPF, and the Boston-based Pathfinder Fund. It is about time that the American people, and the Prolife movement in particular, realize USAID's abortion activities, and act to have Congress pass the Helms Amendment of 1973, which intented to rid USAID of any involvement in abortion related activities.
