The Better World Campaign needs your help to keep Congress from de-funding UN women’s and children’s health programs:

21 words. Just 21 unfortunate words are in a new bill that has been introduced in Congress that would end funding for UN programs that promote the health of women and children in 150 countries around the world.

“The legislation, HR 2059, is just 21 words long:

“Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary of State may not make a contribution to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)”
