The HRP is an international organisation set up by the abortion and population regulation lobby that has been able to provide itself with a “righteous” image by its association with the United Nations. It is important not to trust such organisations. Here, under the guise of the United Nations, an inhumane agenda is being pursued that must be clearly rejected. We should not let ourselves be deceived by the appearance of “righteousness”. There is nothing “righteous“ about advising people to kill their own children for false reasons. Abortion is NOT health care.

The HRP is a United Nations body with a remit covering medical, social and economic issues related to human reproduction and/or related issues such as population regulation, abortion, IVF, etc. It was set up in 1972 and originally dealt with fertility regulation (especially contraception and infertility). One of its “achievements” is the definition of the term “reproductive health” (see the article on “reproductive health”), which includes access to abortion and which was internationally accepted at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo in 1994. In a report by an organisation known as “hera – right to health & developement”, which was created to provide an external evaluation of the work performed by HRP and was commissioned by the HRP itself, it is noted that the HRP has succeeded in moving the family planning discourse from population control to “reproductive rights”. This appears to refer to a strategic renaming of the actual goal of the programme, since “reproductive rights” sounds much better and is therefore much easier to implement internationally than official “measures to curb population growth”.

The HRP aligns the goals of its two-year programmes with the global agendas, above all the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” and the “UN Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health“.1 One of the main topics of the HRP is abortion; the “WHO Multi-Country Survey on Abortion”1 is currently listed as an ongoing project. One of the goals of this project is “to assess institutional capacity for provision of safe abortion and management of complications” – that is, the assessment of capacities for supplying “safe abortion”, most probably with a view to expanding the same.

In addition to the eponymous organizations (UNDP/UNFPA/UNICEF/WHO/World Bank) and the UN AIDS relief organisation UNAIDS, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF, see article on IPPF) is an official partner to the HRP.

In addition to the eponymous UN organisations, the donors of the HRP (as of 3 December 2020) include national governments such as those of India, Great Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, as well as “philanthropic” organisations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
