Transcript for Trump administration expands limits on global health funds tied to abortion
Today I hate making two announcements about the state department's ongoing efforts to ensure that US taxpayer dollars are not used to subsidize or promote abortions. The first announcement concerning the so called Mexico City policy. This Reagan era directive teachers US taxpayer dollars aren't used to sport foreign. Non government organizations that perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning. President from apple expanded the Mexico City policy in 2017. Now protects every. Human life impacted by the nearly nine billion dollars of foreign aid we spend on global health programs each year. An intern protects more unborn babies around the world than ever before will continue to refuse provide assistance to foreign NGOs who perform or actively. Actively promote abortion as a method of family planning. Now as a result of my decision today we're also making cooler.

Foreign groups in the global abortion industry will do all weekend to safeguard US taxpayer dollars and protect and respect. The sanctity of life. For people on the club.
