Earlier this year, I wrote about the significant pro-life victory when President Trump reinstated Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City Policy to prohibit the use of U.S. taxpayer money in foreign aid to organizations that either fund or promote abortions around the world. President Trump did exactly what every previous Republican president since Reagan did, as laid out in our comprehensive legal memo on the policy.
But yesterday, the White House launched an expanded version of the Mexico City Policy called “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance.”
This is significant purely based on the amount of foreign aid that will now only go to organizations that realize the best thing for public health is to protect every single human life, no matter how small.
The old version of the Mexico City Policy only applies to an account of about $575 million each year. The new “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance” program applies to $8.8 billion in foreign aid, a dramatic expansion in the policy that ensures the U.S. foreign policy truly stands up for a founding principle of our country – each individual’s God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Now the policy prevents $8.8 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars in foreign aid from going to organizations that perform or promote abortion. This is a significant and expansive pro-life victory.
Predictably, the big abortion machine instantly kicked into high gear, spreading its lies and the abortion distortion, calling the new policy “devastating,” “anti-woman,” and disregarding “the lives of the world’s most vulnerable women.”
Enough is enough. We’ve been fighting the battle for decades to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers who look out for nothing but their bottom line. They’re lying; they’re losing; and they know it.
Here are the facts:
This week marks a monumental pro-life victory – one that we’ve been working toward for decades. America must always stand for life and the most vulnerable among us.
On April 15 – traditionally known as “Tax Day” – the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), under the direction of President Biden , announced its proposed changes to undo the Trump Administration’s 2019 rule on Title X funding. Under the Trump Administration’s rule, Planned Parenthood...
Does a minor – a girl aged seventeen or younger , who is not emancipated – have an absolute right to obtain an abortion without notifying her parents, and without having a court review her situation? And to put it more bluntly, are Planned Parenthood and other abortionists free to pressure this...
The ACLJ is officially suing the Biden Administration. This Administration has not been responsive to our FOIA requests in any capacity. We just filed a FOIA lawsuit pertaining to the Biden Administration using aborted babies’ body parts for experimentation. It’s hard to even put that into words.
Every day, thousands of innocent unborn babies are killed all around the world. As we reported , there were over 42.6 million abortions in 2020 alone, making abortion the leading cause of death world-wide. That means that over 42.6 million innocent babies were killed at a rate of well over 116,000...
