First daughter's first book, UNICEF, and birth in difficult circimstances

First Daughter Jenna Bush Promotes New Book, Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope, about a Central American teenager, born with HIV, who faces an unplanned pregnancy.

Jenna has begun to reveal her passion for education and helping the underprivileged. She taught elementary grades at a charter school in Washington, D.C. before going to Central and South America as an intern for UNICEF.


The work for UNICEF is a bit troubling, since UNICEF has a history of being a bit to the left of NARAL when it comes to plugging abortion for kids. The subject matter of Jenna's book seems to be a bit at odds with UNICEF's previously documented enthusiasm for wanting to see kids like Ana and her child snuffed in-utero. Or has UNICEF changed a lot.

Does anybody know?
