Question for written answer E-005234/2012
to the Commission
Rule 117
Konrad Szymański (ECR) and Martin Kastler (PPE)

 Subject: Funds from the Development and Cooperation Instrument and abortion, sterilisation and infanticide in the Chinese provinces
 Answer in writing 

In 2010, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) received EUR 2.5 million under the Development and Cooperation Instrument (budget line 21 05 01 01), overseen by the EuropeAid Cooperation office. The IPPF shares funding with its Chinese member association, the China Family Planning Association. Evidence of partnership between the China Family Planning Association and the Chinese Government is well documented. Evidence of forced abortion, sterilisation and infanticide in the Chinese provinces is also well documented. The EU budget has specific provisions prohibiting and combating forced sterilisation.

Is the Commission aware of the relationship between the IPPF, the China Family Planning Association and the government of China?
Does the Commission know whether the IPPF is using Development and Cooperation Instrument funds for the provision of sexual and reproductive health services in China?
If so, can the Commission demonstrate that these funds are not related to coercive abortion, sterilisation or infanticide?
