Trump Executive Order: Mexico City Policy Reinstated

For the past eight years, American tax dollars were used to fund international groups that perform abortions.

One of the first things Obama did as president was to sign an executive order rescinding the Mexico City Policy, allowing for federal funds to pay for abortions around the world.

Yesterday, President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy.

From LifeSiteNews:

In his very first pro-life action, President Donald Trump signed an executive order today reinstating the “Mexico City Policy” banning government funding of foreign pro-abortion groups like the International Planned Parenthood Federation.

A cultural political football, the policy was first enacted by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 and was maintained by President George H.W. Bush until it was rescinded first by Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1993. Eight years later, President George W. Bush reinstated Mexico City and it was in effect until Barack Obama reversed it upon entering office in 2009.

The Mexico City Policy bans funding to organizations that perform abortions overseas or lobby for legalizing them in foreign nations.

Instead of this back and forth with the Mexico City Policy via executive order, it's time to make the policy permanent.

That can happen now.

If Hillary Clinton were president, there is no way the Mexico City Policy would have been reinstated. Your tax dollars would still be funneled to international groups that kill the unborn.

Under President Trump, it's not happening. That's good.
