As one of his avalanche of dozens of dictatorial executive orders, Joe “Commander in Cheat” Biden has now once again changed rules to force the American taxpayer to fund abortions in foreign lands.
On Thursday, Biden signed an executive order reversing the Mexico City Policy, with Biden’s act now allowing federal money to go to fund abortions outside the U.S.
The Mexico City Policy was first enacted by Ronald Reagan and upheld by every Republican president since. In fact, Trump expanded the policy to include family planning funds distributed by the federal government, but also foreign-health assistance provided by government agencies, including the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, and the Defense Department.
Naturally, the leftist supporters of infanticide despise the Mexico City Policy because it opposes abortion.
Opinion polls of American voters, though, do not support the left’s desire to use federal funds for abortions in foreign lands. Indeed a recent poll found that fully three quarters of Americans oppose the funding.
Still, despite what Americans want, Biden is pushing his extremist, left-wing agenda.
Shortly after Biden signed his obscene order, Senator Ben Sasse (R, NB) slammed Biden’s actions.
“These pro-abortion executive orders from President Biden shock the conscience,” Sen. Sasse said. “Our government shouldn’t be funding abortions at home, let alone overseas. Unity is important at times like these, but waging a culture war is only going to deepen divides and hurt innocent victims. Human dignity matters — President Biden should rethink this move.”
For his part, Senator Steve Daines (R, MT) pointed out that this order just fills the pockets of abortion mill operator Planned Parenthood.
“These actions will enrich Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry at the taxpayers’ expense, while endangering the most vulnerable,” Daines said. “The United States should not be promoting a radical abortion agenda throughout the world, we should be leading the fight to protect the unborn and all life.”
