STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSWOMAN CAROLYN MALONEY ON PRESS REPORTS THAT THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION PLANS TO DISREGARD THEIR OWN INVESTIGATIVE TEAM AND WITHHOLD FUNDING FOR UNFPA
Washington, DC - Today, after news reports that the Bush Administration has decided to withhold $34 million for international family planing programs administered by the United Nations, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) released the following statement:
WASHINGTON: Yesterday, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (Manhattan, Queens), Congressman Josè E. Serrano (Bronx), Congressman Anthony Weiner (Brooklyn, Queens) and Congressman Michael McNulty (Albany) introduced legislation to improve the federal government's ability to respond to major disasters and terrorist attacks.

Washington, D.C.-- Today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), along with Representatives Nita Lowey (D-NY), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), and Joseph Crowley (D-NY) announced the findings of a report from a UK delegation sent to China to investigate the U.N. Population Fund's (UNFPA) work in China last April.

Maloney Fights to Save Women's Lives -- President Bush is withholding lifesaving funds from the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA)
President Bush is withholding lifesaving funds from the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) and there is reason to believe his administration will soon invoke a prohibitive amendment to permanently paralyze the money from being released. This is amid reports that a three person delegation team has returned from an investigative trip to China with a squeaky clean report on the work UNFPA does there. So this action would be unconscionable and inconsistent with the Bush Administration's public support for family planning over the last 18 months.
The White House refuses to release their own report on UNFPA's work in China, and the President reportedly may reject the advice of his own fact-finding team as sources say domestic policy staff is weighing in on this International issue
