The International Medical Corps dispenses contraception in large quantities to people in impoverished nations.
In 2010, following a 4-day eruption of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo, IMC dispatched emergency responders to provide care for the survivors. Unfortunately, such care included abortifacient drugs.
In Darfur, IMC is dispensing oral contraceptive pills, contraceptive injections, and male and female condoms. This IMC document explains how IMC’s work from 2012 to 2013 dramatically increased the use of contraception in the regions in which it was working. It says:
Family planning service provision in Darfur: For the last several years, International Medical Corps has been providing continuous, tailored health education messages to mothers and community leaders in Darfur about available family planning methods and the benefits of family planning to women’s health. As a result of its strong behavior change community approach, International Medical Corps has successfully scaled up the use of modern family planning methods, even in remote areas of Central Darfur.
International Medical Corps provides a wide range of family planning methods including oral, injection and emergency contraceptives as well as both male and female condoms.
This 2012, International Medical Corps “update from the field” indicates that it distributed over 50,000 condoms in Cameroon.
In Liberia, International Medical Corps distributed and facilitated an increase in the distribution of condoms in 2006.
Currently, IMC lists family planning and condom promotion, demonstration, and distribution as one of the key factors of its work in Kenya.
According to one of its review documents, International Medical Corps states that as of May, 2009 its program established 51 condom outlets in Uganda.
In a 2013 article in Foreign Policy, International Medical Corps refers to its dwindling supply of emergency contraception.
There are many, many more examples of this both from the past and actively going on now. The point is to illustrate the fact that IMC sees the distribution and promotion of condoms and abortifacient contraception as an important aspect of its work.
Because of IMC’s unwavering promoting of these grave moral evils, no Christian could ever, in good conscience, support, provide funds or a clean image for this organization.
