No one wants to be a spoil-sport when it comes to fundraising for worthy causes, a good thing in itself. However, fundraising efforts should not be spoilt by having the money used to fund the destruction of human life. I urge schools, colleges, universities, places of work, parishes etc to simply boycott Red Nose Day, and pick a worthy charity or two for which to raise money instead. Don’t let Red Nose Day leave you red-faced - get the facts.
Below are just a few examples of groups and projects funded recently by Red Nose Day, found on its website:
- A grant of £374, 694 was given to the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in January 2011 for work in Swaziland, Mozambique and Ethiopia. IPPF's 2011 financial report says that IPPF affiliates carried out over 1.5 million abortion-related procedures in that year. Also in 2001, IPPF launched “It’s all one curriculum”, a sinister programme to indoctrinate children into the culture of death.
- A grant was made to African Initiatives (Ghana) in 2011 for £248,200. This money is being used to fund sexual and reproductive health projects aimed at teen girls
- The Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) was given £72,875.
- Save the Children, which supports abortion and promotes contraception, was given approximately £3.8 million for projects in Rwanda; £1 million for India; £0.9 million for Bangladesh; and £0.25 million for both Brazil and the UK respectively.
- Barnardo's was given £165,000 in May 2011. Barnardo's runs the Young Womens London Project which offers a 'sexual health service'. Through the service "young women can access a nurse for free condoms, contraception (including emergency contraception) pregnancy testing and advice about abortion/termination." The Barnardo's website recommends the websites of Marie Stopes International and the Family Planning Association, two of the UK's leading abortion agencies.
