The “One of Us” campaign, spearheaded by ultra-conservative, anti-choice movements, demanded that the European Commission cut off all funding for human embryonic stem cell research and funding to any organization involved in the provision of indirect or direct abortion or “abortion-related” services in low- and middle-income countries.
