Last Monday, Donald Trump introduced a far-reaching anti-abortion measure, which cuts the 575 million funding of NGO’s that advise and help women with family planning and safe abortion in forty lower-income countries.
Therefore, the Dutch Minister for Development Cooperation, Lilianne Ploumen, established an International Abortion Fund, to oppose the decision of Trump immediately.
“Banning abortion does not lead to fewer abortions. It leads to more irresponsible practices in back rooms and more maternal deaths.” – Lilianne Ploumen
All proceeds will be transferred to an international fund to benefit women in developing countries, providing access to information, contraceptives and abortions, which will be founded by the Dutch Minister for Development Cooperation, Lilianne Ploumen. All proceeds will be transferred as soon as the fund has been established. This website is affiliated with De Jonge Socialisten (Young Socialists) in de PvdA, but both this organisation as well as the Dutch Labour Party will not benefit from these proceeds.
