This is a big win for babies everywhere! Today, President Donald Trump signed an executive order reinstating the Policy which prohibits federal funding from going to foreign nonprofit organizations that promote or commit abortions. This happened only one day after the 44th anniversary of the devastating Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion-on-demand in America.
The former policy implemented originally by President Ronald Reagan will defund International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International. Trump made promises to defund Planned Parenthood, and he is delivering! He’s making the Hyde Amendment, which took an important step to halt America’s hand in bankrolling abortion overseas, a permanent order.
Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Health, Michael Burgess, praised this move, said it was a crucial step in “advancing pro-life policies and protecting taxpayer dollars.”
“Life is a precious and sacred gift, and we must do all we can to protect it. I applaud President Trump for taking this important action and look forward to continuing to work together in advancing pro-life policies and protecting taxpayer dollars.”
Although nonprofit organizations are allowed to keep their funding by complying with the Mexico City Policy, International Planned Parenthood Federation gave up tax dollars when former President George W. Bush reinstated the policy.
