President Obama’s repeal of the Mexico City Policy, an amendment established “to restore the prohibition on funding of nongovernmental organizations that promote abortion as a method of birth control,” has opened the door to a larger threat of devastating proportions to the international community….

The bill (S.AMDT.65), instituted by Ronald Reagan in 1984, has fluctuated in power disposed of by the executive office for the past several decades: although rescinded by Bill Clinton in 1993, George W. Bush reinstated it while in office, only for it to be repealed by President Obama on January 23, 2009 – just 3 days after his official inauguration.
According to LifeSiteNews, on July 9 the Democrat-controlled Senate Appropriations Committee voted 17-11 for an amendment that would extract a 6-figure sum of federal tax dollars from vital resources for health care and codify President Obama’s executive order, thereby preventing future presidents from exercising executive order in reviving the Mexico City Policy.
This new amendment poses a far more hazardous threat to the foreign population than in previous years. Now it will advance to a consensus by the full Senate later this summer.
The bill allots a prodigious $628.5 million to budget toward abortion industries internationally, of which $50 million would directly endorse the United Nations Population Fund. Despite claims made by the UNFPA, recent investigations have confirmed earlier proof indicating its involvement in supporting China’s one-child policy tactics, which include inhumane practices such as forced abortion and sterilization.
Surveys evaluating voters’ responses to President Obama’s recent executive actions acknowledge his Mexico City Policy decision to be the least popular use of power. While approval ratings of the President’s earlier actions are at 75%, only 35% indicate approval of his initiative to fund abortions abroad, says LifeSiteNews.
It costs approximately $30 per month to save one child from hunger, but our president heralded his inauguration by allotting the government $628.5 million to killing unborn children. What’s wrong with this picture?
