A group of 40 House Republicans, led by Rep. Chip Roy (Texas), have introduced a bill to defund the United Nations Population Fund, arguing the international body supports China's tyrannical population controls, including forced abortions and forced sterilization of women.

The "No Taxpayer Funding for the United Nations Population Fund Act" would prevent U.S. taxpayer dollars from being spent to support UNFPA, which supports "global population and reproductive health."
