Abortion provider Marie Stopes International (MSI) ended the lives of almost 5 million babies in the womb last year in developing countries.
Guess who their biggest single donor was? You.
Yes, the UK taxpayer gave over £48,000,000 to the organisation in 2018, an increase of 5,000% in the last 12 years, making the UK taxpayer the largest donor to the organisation.
This increase comes at the same time as the Charity Commission is investigating MSI for rewarding its chief executive, Simon Cooke, a total salary package in excess of £400,000!
Recent scandals at the organisation have included it being prevented from practising by Governments overseas for performing illegal abortions in their countries, along with investigations by the Care Quality Commission reporting that it endangered the safety of women in the UK, and one woman bled to death after having an abortion in one of their clinics in London.
On Monday 23 September, Secretary of State for International Development, Alok Sharma MP, announced to the UN that the UK taxpayer would be providing an additional £600 million of taxpayer money for “family planning”, which will include funding abortions. This pledge is the UK Government’s largest ever stand-alone spend of taxpayer money in this area and comes on top of the £1.1 billion already pledged over a 5 year period beginning in 2017.
The enormous amounts of taxpayer money being used to fund this scandal-ridden organisation to end the lives of millions of babies must stop. Fiona Bruce MP has tabled a Parliamentary motion calling for all funding to Marie Stopes International to be cut.
