Pro-Life Win! Trump Reverses Obama's Abortion Funding Overseas...
A favorite leftist pastime is jacking taxpayer money to fund the flushing away of their accident babies. Calling those who oppose baby murder (and its funding) "SEXIST!" comes in as a close second. Well, one of those hobbies just took a major blow. President Trump recently signed an executive order cutting government funds for all foreign abortions...
President Donald Trump issued an executive order Monday reinstating a Republican policy that would ban U.S. aid to groups that provide or promote abortions overseas.
Known as the “Mexico City policy” or the “global gag rule,” the measure came one day after the 44th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion across the country.
The measure has ping-ponged back and forth into effect and out of effect depending on the party in power at the White House. Since Republican President Ronald Reagan first issued the policy, it was rescinded by two Democratic presidents, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
This is a big deal, clearly. Expect a stampede of angered feminist wildebeests to follow shortly.
An interesting side note here - Trump laid down this executive order just one day after the anniversary of Roe V Wade. Also two days after the cankle-fest that was the Women's March. In your pizza-greased faces, feminists.
This was a huge issue for the U.S., which has an obvious answer. Should taxpayers be forced to fund abortions? Nay. Should taxpayers be forced to fund abortions overseas? Nay again. It's unconstitutional spending of taxpayer dollars (see HOME RUN: Paul Ryan Perfectly Describes Why Govt. Should Defund Planned Parenthood). Simple stuff.
Yes, Planned Parenthood is still collecting taxpayer dough in the States. And yes, they're still using said moneys to wage war against their archenemy - the fetus. Still, this is a giant, feminist-sized contrast from the Obama presidency (see Freedom of Choice? ObamaCare Now Forces Churches to Fund Abortions... and Obama Pushes Last Minute Rule FORCING States to Fund Planned Parenthood). Possibly a sign of good things to come. Only time can tell, but this is yet another step in the right direction. You know, the direction where babies aren't sucked out of the womb before being vacuum-sealed and sold like deli meat.
Speaking of abortion...
