Former UN Deputy Human Rights Commissioner Now Heads IPPF Board

The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) has announced that its new 15-member Board of Trustees is headed by Kate Gilmore, who from 2015-2019 was United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights. While in that position Gilmore actively promoted access to abortion as a human right despite the fact that no UN treaty states that abortion is a human right.
Gilmore is an example of pro-abortion activists serving in key UN positions. Prior to serving as Deputy Commissioner, Ms. Gilmore worked at the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) as Assistant Secretary General and Deputy Executive Director for Programmes. Prior to UNFPA, she was Executive Deputy Secretary General of Amnesty International when it adopted a pro-abortion stance.
In accepting the IPPF position Gilmore said,
"It would be an extraordinary privilege to join the Board of IPPF at any time; but it is even more so now. As certain governments and other regressive influencers work to orchestrate rollback on sexual and reproductive health and rights, IPPF stands as a beacon of hope and solidarity for the fundamental dignity of women, men and young people - of people of all identities - the world over.
According to IPPF's survey of its members across 64 countries it found that 5,633 static and mobile clinics and community-based care centers had closed because of the pandemic.
