George Bush & the Mexico City Policy

Or,

The Disinterested Concern of Mr Clinton for the Women of the Developing World

Old news, but many will not have read it before. This is a very long document to which I link, but even in scanning it one soon notices that the sponsorship of the IPPF, for example, is exactly the kind of thing that the memorandum mentions: USA interests demand that the population of poor countries not be allowed too expand to fast or too far, but direct USA involvement in population control programes might be resented, so other agencies should be employed to do the work.

The link is here.
