United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
Campbell Amendment to restore funding to UNFPA
07/20/1999
House Roll Call No. 312
106th Congress, 1st Session

Agreed to: 221-198 (see complete tally)
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) participates in China's coercive population-control program and has promoted abortion in a variety of other ways. During budget negotiations in October 1998, pro-life lawmakers were able to cut off U.S. funds to the UNFPA for 1999. However, on July 20, 1999, pro-abortion Congressman Tom Campbell (R-Ca.) offered an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2000 State Department reauthorization bill (H.R. 2415), to authorize resumption of funding of up to $25 million to the UNFPA in 2000 under certain conditions, including that the money not be spent in China. NRLC opposed the Campbell Amendment, but it was
adopted 221-198, a pro-life loss (roll call 312). This funding was part of the final bill that was signed into law by President Clinton in November 1999.
