C-FAM praises U.S. withdrawal from China-defending WHO

Trump and WHOThere is now an official plan by the Trump administration to drop its membership in the World Health Organization, an arm of the United Nations, and a pro-life group welcomes that announcement.

The far-left international group angered the United States and other countries for defending China during the first crucial weeks of the COVID-19 outbreak, and Rebecca Oas of C-FAM says that sordid partnership was obvious to see.

“The problems that had been observed, certainly in the early stages,” she recalls, “were that the World Health Organization was repeating the talking points of the Chinese Communist Party…”

In particular, the WHO infamously parroted China’s claim the virus did not spread person-to-person at the same time entire Chinese cities were being quarantined, and doctors and nurses were warning about the outbreak only to be punished for speaking out.

Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Hong-Kong based virologist, told Fox News she fled from Chinese authorities in late April when it became obvious her warnings and research had angered China’s communist party leaders. 

Yan, who is now safely in the U.S., said China covered up the outbreak alleges the WHO, which knew the truth, cooperated with the cover-up.

The largest contributor to the WHO is the U.S., which contributed $426 million during the 2018-2019 budget year. 

Oas and C-FAM, meanwhile, have fought the WHO over its liberal abortion policy around the world, which is not even its stated mission.

“And the funding that the United States has given to the World Health Organization -- we've been its largest donor -- we don't have control over how that money is spent,” Oas points out.

WHO was formally notified of the U.S. withdrawal in recent weeks, which followed an announcement by President Trump in May. The withdrawal is not official, however, until July of 2021.
