Uganda: World Bank Loans 30 Million for Abortions

By Hannah Russo | June 4, 2010

The World Bank recently announced that it will be giving Uganda a $130 million loan to improve the countries health care, “with a focus on maternal health, newborn care and family planning.”

As stated by the World Bank $30m (39%) of the loan will be used specifically for “reproductive health” services. This large sum is troubling considering reproductive health is a nice way of saying that they could be setting up the framework for thousands of abortions.
