    Trump Expands Executive Order Defunding International Planned Parenthood

    President Donald Trump took another step to defund the abortion industry Monday through a new proposed rule to expand the Mexico City Policy.

    The pro-life policy has been in place during Republican presidential administrations since Ronald Reagan, defunding the International Planned Parenthood Federation and other abortion groups of hundreds of millions of tax dollars.

    But Trump has done more to protect life than other Republican presidents. In 2017, he expanded the policy to cut off more streams of revenue to international non-governmental agencies (NGOs) that promote and/or provide abortions. The rule defunded Planned Parenthood’s international arm of about $100 million and the British abortion chain Marie Stopes International of about $73 million in U.S. tax dollars.

    The new proposed rule could lead to even more cuts to pro-abortion groups.

    Released Monday in the Federal Register, it would require all groups that receive global health aid contracts to agree not to promote and/or provide elective abortions, The Hill reports. Those that refuse would not receive taxpayer funding.

    According to the Catholic News Agency, the proposal expands the Mexico City Policy to include military and government contracts overseas.

    Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser praised the Trump administration for “boldly defending life” across the world.

    “From day one, they have championed innovative policies to protect unborn children and their mothers, as well as taxpayers,” Dannenfelser said. “This new proposed rule builds on that success, further preventing the big abortion industry from exporting abortion on demand around the world on American taxpayers’ dime.”

    Here’s more from the news outlet:

    While the policy previously covered around $600 million in USAID family planning assistance, President Trump directed the State Department to expand it to cover “global health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies” to the extent allowed by the law.

    The expanded Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy covers nearly $9 billion in U.S. foreign aid under the State Department, USAID, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Department of Defense. This includes, for example, grants to foreign NGOs under international health programs to fight AIDS and infectious diseases, or to provide maternal and child nutrition.

    Every Republican suddenly turns uber-pro-life around election time, even after voting for and signing spending bills with massive PP handouts.

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    Fom Family Values standpoint, this is a big play for GOP Christian base vote that has been somewhat demoralized and confused since DOMA defeat and recent progressive left wins, Obama/Trump elections etc.

    A year before election:

    US Senate’s First Bill, in Midst of Shutdown, to ensure $38B Aid to Israel and no boycotts

    Israeli government offers women aged 20 to 33 free abortions
    The Washington Post
    A famously child-friendly country with a federally subsidized universal health care system that offers free fertility treatments, Israel has made it easier for economically distressed women to obtain an abortion.
    The 2014 “health basket” of medical services and medications approved by Israel’s cabinet Sunday (Jan. 5) includes free abortions for Israeli women aged 20 to 33, regardless of the circumstances. The $4.6 million earmarked by the Health Ministry committee will cover some 6,300 abortions for women who cannot afford the procedure.





    Although, this could complicate Christian base/family values vote bank outreach.

    Trump signs spending bills that pass by veto proof margins, that's not news, he wants to keep some influence on the budget.
    But he has been the most pro-life POTUS since Roe v. Wade so far and he continues to do more and more.

    If they were really pro life they wouldn't send people to die in unconstitutional illegal wars.
