FFC Executive Director Tim Head Statement On President Trump’s Mexico City Policy Executive Order

Duluth, GA – Faith & Freedom Coalition Executive Director Tim Head issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s signing of an Executive Order reversing Barack Obama’s decision to overturn the the Mexico City policy instituted by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. The original order barred abortion providers who operate in foreign countries from receiving U.S taxpayer funds.

“President Trump on only his third day in office has already delivered on his campaign promise to be a strong pro-life President by re-instituting President Reagan’s Mexico City Policy. The Executive Order simply requires that foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) agree, as a condition of their receipt of U.S. federal grant money, to neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning overseas. The life community is thankful that the Trump administration is now putting an immediate stop to our tax dollars being used to promote and perform abortions across the globe. The abortion industry and organizations that perform and promote abortion will now be forced to seek funding from sources other than the U.S taxpayer.”
