As a member and core strategist of the Clinton delegation to the 1994 United Nations population conference, I can state categorically that neither the U.S. delegation, nor any other delegation, (nor the U.N. agencies or nongovernmental organizations) "promote abortion as 'reproductive health,' as Steven Mosher claims ["Rep. Davis: Champion of women, opponent of UNFPA funding," March 21].
Mr. Mosher's phrase is widely used by the extreme right to camouflage a broader, underlying agenda. That agenda would deny women access to the widest range of contraceptives of their choice, withhold vital information from young people that would protect them against HIV and AIDS and prevent girls and women from achieving equality with men.
