136 Congressmembers Sign Letter Calling on Biden to Reinstate Mexico City Policy

March for Life in 2017
136 Members of Congress signed a letter last week urging President Biden to reconsider his decision to end the Mexico City Policy.

Biden issued an executive order last week reversing Trump's Protect Life Rule, which reinstated and expanded on President Ronald Reagan's Mexico City Policy. As a result, federal tax dollars will now be used to promote and fund abortion in other nations, even those that do not support abortion.

Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) authored the letter. In it, he wrote, “Many countries throughout the world have been besieged by aggressive and well-funded campaigns to overturn their pro-life laws and policies.” 

In a statement, Smith said, “U.S. foreign policy—and the foreign entities we fund with billions of dollars in grant money—should consistently affirm, care for, and tangibly assist women and children—including unborn baby girls and boys.”

Smith also referenced a new Marist Poll which found that 77% of Americans oppose using taxes to support foreign abortions.
