President Biden Signs Executive Order Rescinding The Mexico City Policy
On the eve of the 2021 March for Life, President Joe Biden signed an executive order ending The Mexico City Policy, a vital pro-life protection which bars the U.S. from funding abortion overseas. The Mexico City Policy was first introduced by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Since its inception, The Mexico City Policy has been rescinded by every Democratic president and reinstated or continued by every Republican president.
During his 2020 presidential campaign, Biden and his now-Vice President Kamala Harris ran on the most radically pro-abortion platform in our nation’s history. Biden promised to end The Mexico City Policy, repeal the pro-life Hyde Amendment and codify Roe v. Wade. Less than 10 days into his presidential term, President Biden has already begun implementing his pro-abortion campaign promises.
Voting has life and death consequences for the innocent unborn and women in crisis. With the Mexico City Policy rescinded, the abortion industry can now more easily promote the ending of innocent human using federal tax dollars and expand their abortion business across the world. Although such losses on a federal level are heartbreaking to our movement, it is important for us to never lose heart. Our impact for life in our communities continues to propel the pro-life cause forward as we build a culture of life from the ground up. Changing hearts and mind about abortion and educating those around us on the inherent value of every life will remain our focus. In the end, the compassion and conviction of the pro-life movement will prevail.
