Republican Congressman Chris Smith (NJ), who is the prime sponsor of the 2018 PEPFAR reauthorization bill, stated that Biden is hijacking a $6 billion AIDS program to promote abortion.

The Biden administration is allegedly using a Bush-era program that delivers AIDS relief to Africa, called PEPFAR, to promote its pro-abortion agenda abroad, Republican Congressman Chris Smith (NJ) told Breitbart News on Monday.
“President Biden has brazenly hijacked this foreign aid program in order to promote the killing of unborn children by poison, starvation, and dismemberment,” alleged Smith, who is the prime sponsor of the 2018 PEPFAR reauthorization bill that was enacted into law. “Those of us who support the noble goals of PEPFAR are sickened at heart by Biden’s 2022 radical ‘reimagining PEPFAR’ strategic plan that ‘integrates’ abortion promotion with HIV/AIDS projects.”
“In plain language, the Biden Administration further directs PEPFAR to work with organizations seeking to get rid of life-affirming laws in other countries,” Smith continued. “That is unacceptable. Congress must act to protect PEPFAR—which was created to provide care to those who are ill and tangibly assist women and children—from being radically transformed into a program that promotes abortion on demand.”
Fox News first reported on the allegations over the weekend, citing a letter Smith wrote to his colleagues on Capitol Hill last week warning them about the Biden administration’s plans for the program.

“President Biden has hijacked PEPFAR, the $6 billion a year foreign aid program designed to mitigate HIV/AIDS in many targeted — mostly African — countries in order to promote abortion on demand,” Smith wrote in the letter.
PEPFAR, which stands for the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, was created in 2003 under President George W. Bush and is up for reauthorization in Congress this year. According to the State Department, the program has “invested over $100 billion in the global HIV/AIDS response, saving 25 million lives, preventing millions of HIV infections, and supporting several countries to achieve HIV epidemic control…”
In the letter, Smith alleged that two organizations that have a record of pushing abortion, Village Reach and Population Services International (PSI), have received $10.1 million and $96.5 million within the last few years from PEPFAR.
“PSI proudly proclaims it provides abortion and lobbies to eliminate pro-life laws,” Smith wrote. “PSI provides comprehensive abortion and post-abortion care services in nearly 20 countries throughout the world.”
According to an analysis conducted by three nonpartisan organizations, it has been revealed that US lawmakers have proposed 185 laws in 2023 that may be used to subvert elections.
