National Right to Life Urges President and Congress to Reject Funding Abortion Overseas

National Right to Life President Carol Tobias
The National Right to Life Coalition sent a letter to President Donald Trump asking him to urge Congress not to pass the Senate’s State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs (SFOPS) appropriations bill.

A "poison pill" amendment was added to the bill by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) which would increase taxpayer funding of abortions overseas by giving money to U.S.-based NGOs that promote abortions. Furthermore, it creates a "blacklist" for pro-life organizations; making it harder for them to receive the same funding.

“The Shaheen amendment would weaken the Trump Administration’s Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA) policy as well as other administration initiatives protecting life,” stated Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “This amendment is anti-life and would jeopardize this administration’s efforts to protect life both here and abroad.”
