Irish cash for abortion aid agencies in Ethiopia

Irish Independent -

Government agency gave over €8.5m to termination providers.

Millions of euros of Irish taxpayers’ money has been used to support agencies which fund abortion in Ethiopia through Irish Aid, the Government’s overseas development agency.

When questioned about its policy, Irish Aid said: “We don’t provide any funding to those whose focus is to provide abortion services as this would be against government policy.”

However, between 2005 and 2012, Irish Aid gave over €8.5m to two of Ethiopia‘s biggest abortion providers.

The Family Guidance Association of Ethiopia (FGAE), which got €2.7m from Irish Aid between 2008 and 2012, lists the provision of “safe abortion services” as one of its “major focus areas”.
