Prayer Alert November 16, 2019In another test for the Trump administration on its resolve to stand for life, the Administration clearly and unequivocally reaffirmed its commitment to life in word and deed, protecting the rights of women and the unborn to the international community this week. That's a huge praise! The Nairobi Summit on International Conference on Population and Development 2025, taking place in Kenya this week, is more like a summit of abortion leaders and activists, and the political leaders who support them. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) hosts the summit, where support for abortions is the baseline worldview among attendees. Through the week, activists are actively attempting to elevate and secure "the right to an abortion" as a basic human right. In fact, President Trump cut funding to this organization back in 2017, depriving them of $32.5 million. He has held firm to that commitment. Valerie Huber, the United States' special representative for global women’s health, however, pushed back against the abortion activists at the summit. She clearly and strongly told the summit that America will not support abortion. Huber said that instead, the U.S. seeks to champion and fund programs that support the rights of women and girls, “without compromising the inherent value of every human life – born and unborn.” Not only is that opinion not popular within the summit, evidently those who believe it are not welcome even to attend. Pro-life views and voices have been blocked entirely from attending the conference, and countries who hold a pro-life stance are being refused to give input. The U.S. is one of the few pro-life voices that is allowed--making their firm stance at this conference even more critical. “The US is committed to promoting a healthy understanding of child spacing and non-coercive family planning to help couples either achieve or prevent pregnancy. The US is the largest bilateral funder for family planning. That hasn’t changed,” Huber said. Huber stated that “abortion is not a method of family planning” and that alternatives exist and can be promoted. Join us to praise God for the strength and commitment of the Trump Administration to uphold life, both in our nation and abroad. Pray that nations would be encouraged and emboldened to stand up against the abortion lobby that is pushing their agenda.
