Remember how Conservatives opposed Trump because he would ‘capitulate’ to the Left on Life issues?
So… will they be admitting they were wrong?
The Trump administration’s new ‘Protecting Life in Global Assistance’ policy makes not only State Department funds fall under the Mexico City, but some Department of Defense money too, to a new total of $8.8 billion that can’t be used to promote abortions overseas.
Previously the policy only applied to family planning assistance provided by the State Department and USAID.
A senior administration official also made clear in a call with reporters Monday that the funding ban only applies to organizations that promote abortion as a means for family planning.
‘Referrals for the termination of a pregnancy in cases or rape, incest or endangerment of the life of the woman are not prohibited under this policy,’ the official said.
A White House official also told the CBN reporter that, ‘The pro-life policy will apply to global health assistance funding for international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, malaria, global health security, and family planning and reproductive health.’ — DailyMail
Predictably, the liberals cried that it was anti-woman.
Because apparently to them, abortionists EVERYWHERE in the world have a right US tax dollars.
‘President Trump is treating women’s lives like political bargaining chips, trading them away to shore up his flagging support,’ said Sasha Bruce, the senior vice president of campaigns and strategy for NARAL Pro-Choice America. (Dailymail)
Senior vice president of campaigns and strategy?
Speaking of ‘political bargaining chips’ doesn’t NARAL’s treatment of the unborn as political bargaining chips, not to mention their silence on gender-selective abortions (anti-woman) and mistreatment of women and gays by certain *cough* Protected groups *cough* … shouldn’t they be keeping that ‘glass houses’ advice in mind?
And don’t try to give us that rape-and-incest red herring. That’s already a built-in exception.
Who’s going to like this news? Africans who the Left’s abortion propaganda as Colonialist and oppressive, and detrimental to the family values their cultures cherish. People like the lovely and articulate Researcher-turned activist ‘Uju‘.
You’d think, for all their browbeating about ‘culture’ and ‘appropriation’ and ‘sensitivity’ … the Left might be more sensitive to such things.
Nope. It’s all about control. It’s all their agenda is EVER about.
