Biden prepares to reinstate taxpayer funding of international abortions: Reports

Former President Donald Trump spent his first term in the White House as a strong and effective advocate for pro-life America.

Under President Joe Biden, however, U.S. taxpayers will once again be supporting abortions performed abroad.

“Coercive abortions”

According to Fox News, Biden is preparing to put an end to the so-called Mexico City policy, which prevents American tax dollars from going to international groups that either perform abortions or provide information about such services.

The policy has been supported by pro-life Republicans, while Democratic presidents have roundly rejected the restriction. For his part, Trump reinstated a particularly strong version of the policy that had been rescinded by his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, upon taking office.

At the time, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer declared: “The United States will end the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortion overseas, along with coercive abortions and sterilization practices.”

Now, it appears Biden will follow in the footsteps of prior Democratic commanders in chief.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert who was named Biden’s chief medical adviser, as much as confirmed the impending move during a press conference on Thursday.

“Gender equality”

“It will be our policy to support women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights in the United States, as well as globally,” Fauci explained.

He went on to declare that Biden “will be revoking the Mexico City policy in the coming days,” describing the move as a part of the president’s “commitment to protect women’s health and advance gender equality at home and around the world.”

Abortion opponents hailed Trump’s move, which halted roughly $9 billion in funding from going to international pro-choice groups.

Of course, one such group, MSI Reproductive Choices, complained that Trump’s policy meant the loss of about $30 million that it would have used to perform countless abortions.

Abortion was the No. 1 “cause of death globally in 2020, with a record 42.7 million unborn babies killed in the womb,” according to Breitbart, which cited evidence compiled by Worldometer. In comparison, 8.2 million people died worldwide from cancer last year.
