Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Washington, D.C. – Today, President Trump signed an executive order protecting the lives of the unborn by reinstating the Mexico City Policy. The Mexico City Policy prevents non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that receive federal funding from the U.S. from promoting or performing abortions. Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, had this to say:

“On behalf of CWA’s nearly half a million members and pro-life women across the country, I want to thank President Trump for using one of his first executive orders to keep his promise to defend life.

“Thank you for making sure our hard-earned tax dollars aren’t used to fund or promote abortions abroad. America has so much more to offer the world than death.

“Over 80 percent of Americans want a ban on taxpayer funding of international abortions. President Trump’s reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy is a powerful first step. We at Concerned Women for America look forward to working with the Trump Administration to ensure taxpayers are no longer forced to pay for abortions, period.”
