Trump Signs Order Reinstating Ban On Funding/Promoting Abortions Overseas


The Daily Caller: “President Donald Trump issued an executive order Monday reinstating a Republican policy that would ban U.S. aid to groups that provide or promote abortions overseas.

“President Trump is wasting no time acting on his promises. Already, he has laid the groundwork to protect Americans struggling under Obamacare. He has renewed President Reagan’s policy to ensure American taxpayers are not forced to subsidize abortions anywhere in the world,” Mike Ryan said.”

Opinion: On January 3, 2009, Barack Obama repealed rules that restricted federal money for international organizations that promote or provide abortions overseas according to the New York Times (here):

“The executive order that Mr. Obama signed reverses one of the first measures enacted by Mr. Bush when he took over the White House eight years ago and capped an opening-week flurry of action intended to signal a sharp break from the past in domestic and foreign arenas:

“For the past eight years, they have undermined efforts to promote safe and effective voluntary family planning in developing countries,” Mr. Obama said of the restrictions. “For these reasons, it is right for us to rescind this policy and restore critical efforts to protect and empower women and promote global economic development.”

He was the abortion president, even giving an unusually deep hug to Cecile Richards, saying “God bless Planned Parenthood.”

President Trump signed 2 additional Executive Orders yesterday: TPP is dead and buried and there is now a freeze on Federal hiring.
