Drat, our tax dollars are not going to be sent overseas to promote, and provide abortions? Call me crazy but Trump nailed this one.

Trump reignited the war over abortion by blocking aid for orgs that provide, promote abortion.


President Trump on Monday reignited the war over abortion by signing an executive order blocking foreign aid or federal funding for international nongovernmental organizations that provide or "promote" abortions.

The so-called Mexico City policy, established by Republican President Ronald Reagan in 1984, blocks federal funding for international family planning charities that provide abortions or "promote" the procedure by providing patients with information about it, including by offering referrals to abortion providers.


Critics call it the global gag rule with the presidents playing a game of back and forth over the years. And there is going to be a demonstrations and counter demonstrations. Trump signed this on the anniversary of Roe V wade--got to love the swagger.

thehill.com...
Referred to by critics as the "global gag rule," the policy has been subjected to a game of political football over the years, with Democratic presidents rescinding the policy upon taking office, as President Obama did in 2009, and Republican presidents reinstating it.

The move comes amid a roiling public debate about women’s rights, jump-started Saturday by women’s marches held in major cities around the world.

That demonstration will be countered on Friday by the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.

The order also comes one day after the 44th anniversary of the Roe V. Wade Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal.

I dont think we should pay for abortions for non-citizens. We arent the parent or god parents to the world, or even the world police. This can be easily paid for privately with organizations via bleeding heart donaters.

God bless Trump!

I don't want my taxes used for murdering babies.
This was a good first step.

Your tax dollars will still, as usual, provide abortion provisions in the cases of rape, incest and a woman's health. Your tax dollar never did pay for abortions on demand. The only difference with this bill is now the US won't fund any services at all to clinics that provide full scale women's reproductive counsel or services. No birth control, pap smears, breast exams, pre-natal exams. Clinics will close and women and their families will pay the price. Some, with their lives.


ETA: You can expect a lot more women crying "rape" and "incest".

if their own countries won`t provide those services to them they should protest their government.

maybe the U.S. could loan those countries the money, to provide those services, at a reasonable interest rate of course.

If their own countries could provide for their people, we wouldn't be there.

So Trump ends the last eight years of coat hangers without borders.



While a certain group of people freak out for the next four years

The next guy will say YES THEY CAN again.

Moving on.

The clinics won't close and can still be extremely helpful...all they have to do is stop promoting abortions! If they refuse to do this and are forced to close...they are the ones screwing women out of the other available options and care. I guess we will see if they really care about women or if there is another agenda involved based on whether they close their doors?

Great, now we will have even more poor people in the world, which probably cause more starvation, war and terrorism, not to mention wiping out even more animal species and exacerbating climate change.

So I take you are for forced extermination of the poor and oppressed. Simply, because abortion often is not a choice that they want, but are forced due to current circumstance. Wouldn't be better to assist them in finding a more successful path in life rather than tell them the only way they can be empowered his to kill their children?

Bravo.

Abortion has become a marketed, for profit business. Happy to see my tax dollars will no longer support the criminal business overseas.

Why should the American taxpayer be paying for foreign organizations to promote and perform abortions abroad? Trump is killing it today! And I don't mean like abortion clinics killing babies.

NO, I am for keeping even more people from being subjected to suffering and death, which is what you have in much of the third world today due to overpopulation.

And also keeping our country from completely becoming a third-world hellhole.

If Trump really wants to help the third world he can stop bombing and invading them.

By killing them before they can ever take a breathe of fresh air.

Wombs are suppose to be a SAFE SPACE.

The mark of any true civilized society is how they treat the defenseless.

Abortion is a barbaric practice relegated to the id.

Ha, that's both funny and sad.

Why don't lefties support what should be the safest of all safe spaces?

First of all, it's abhorrent for a bunch of self righteous male politicians, pandering to the religious right, to assume the right censor a doctor's, or other health professional's, speech and disallow them from providing their patient with the best medical advise and services available to them.

Secondly, abortion is considered a human right by the United Nations, and it may not be so easy to just change a clinic's missions statement, when it comes to reproductive rights, to accommodate one type of funding over another.

Funny thing about human 'rights'.

People have to be born first so the UN can say they have it.
