Trump Reinstitutes Mexico City Policy

 

 

Bravo for President Trump:

 

 

President Donald Trump signed an executive action on Monday reinstating the so-called Mexico City Policy, which bars international non-governmental organizations that perform or promote abortions from receiving US government funding.

The policy, initially put in place by the Reagan administration, was rescinded by the Obama administration in 2009.
 
Even during the Obama years, US law banned direct funding for abortion services. But NGOs that performed the procedure were allowed to receive US funding for other programs, including those related to contraception access and post-abortion care.
Now, NGOs that offer or promote abortions as part of their family planning services will be prevented from receiving any assistance from the US Agency for International Development, one of the largest contributors to international development assistance.

  1. Bad enough our tax dollars, that remain the taxpayers’ property are being used to slaughter our constitutional Posterity at home but to ship our crimes abroad at the taxpayers’ expense is criminal. Extortion.

  2. It’s a start in the right direction.
    I paid no attention to the dingbats and their riot like protests over the weekend. There were more important things to do. They will not go away quietly and it will take some backbone to tell them to pound sand.

  3. Now the left can watch a real “Fast and Furious” at work.
    The congrats and cheers from the Vatican and USCCB must be heard around the world..no?

  4. Thanks be to God.
    Meanwhile, I think I just heard the Pope said that Trump may be like Hitler because the proposed Southern Border Wall. http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2017/01/23/pope-ill-judge-trump-after-we-see-what-he-does/

    This country is just too pluralist to ever be like Nazi Germany. And Trump is not Hitler, he’s a business guy who knows he can do much much better than the last eight years.
    I will be looking for the Pope to praise Trump for the reinstating the so-called Mexico City Policy-

  5. Yes! “I will be looking for the Pope to praise Trump for the reinstating the so-called Mexico City Policy-“

  6. Opponents of Donald Trump say that his presidential victory was about hate. Hillary Clinton is pro-abortion all the way. Perhaps the vote for Hillary was about hate. Do the pro-choice people hate the unborn?

  7. Amen, Thank you Lord for our new president. Keep him wise as a serpent, gentle as a Dove as he is bring used by you Lord,thru.the Holy spirit.

  8. I’m overjoyed at this small step and also at the hysteria and lies being heaped on President Trump. It will keep him on point. If the dastards had any sense (they do not) they’d work with him. Then, I fear he would waffle. But, their attacks will make him more Trumpian. I love it!

  9. The Mexico City Policy, an executive order by President Reagan, was reaffirmed by President George H.W. Bush, revoked by executive order of bill clinton, reinstated by executive order of President George W. Bush, revoked by executive order of barack hussein obama, and now again reinstated by executive order of President Trump.

    Those who complain that electing Republican candidates “changes nothing” for the pro-life cause, they should reflect on the history of this so-called Mexico City Policy.
