The enormous difference a Pro-Life President makes

As the graphic above illustrates, former President Donald Trump saved unborn babies’ lives both at home and overseas. On every issue, pro-abortion President Joe Biden has taken the exact opposite stance, with a goal of exporting (and underwriting) the abortion plague.

On April 3, 2017, the Trump Administration reinstated a policy  that directed United States foreign assistance dollars away from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) on the basis that its activities in China are complicit with that nation’s coercive population control program, the implementation of which includes forced abortion and involuntary sterilization.

Note. Forever ignored in the press, the family planning and health programs not involved in China’s population control program received the funds.

The move to redirect funds away from UNFPA was in light of the president’s actions to reinstate the Mexico City Policy. That policy, which had been in place in Republican administrations since 1984, when it was announced by authority of President Reagan at an international population-control conference in Mexico City. Under that policy, in order to be eligible for certain types of foreign aid, a private organization must sign a contract promising not to perform abortions (except to save the mother’s life or in cases of rape or incest), not to lobby to change the abortion laws of host countries, or otherwise “actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.”

The President later expanded this policy in the “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance” to prevent foreign aid from being used to fund the global abortion industry.

“We congratulate President Trump and his administration for making it abundantly clear the United States will not support a United Nations agency that cooperates in China’s brutally repressive population control policies,” National Right to Life President Carol Tobias said at the time. “I heartily applaud what we at National Right to Life are seeing from this pro-life administration.”
