Abortion Advocates Claim “Women and Children Will Die” Because Trump Defunded Intl Planned Parethood

Written by  Michael New Ph.D.

Earlier this week, the Trump administration released an executive order expanding the Mexico City policy. This policy, first enacted by President Reagan in 1984, prevents overseas government organizations from providing or endorsing abortion as a method of family planning if they wish to receive federal funding from the U.S.

The original Mexico City policy applied to the approximately $600 million the U.S. furnishes in global family planning funding, but under the revision, $8.8 billion global health assistance will be covered.

This is a policy change that pro-lifers should welcome. For years, organizations supporting legal abortion have used U.S. taxpayer funds to weaken pro-life laws in other countries. This expanded policy will significantly reduce taxpayer complicity in global abortion. More importantly, the change will not reduce the overall amount of U.S. funding for global health assistance. Instead this rule change will prioritize maternal care, prenatal care, and other programs that ensure adequate nutrition and medical care for mothers and children, rather than abortion.

Unsurprisingly, mainstream media outlets have been nearly unanimous in their criticism of this policy change. The New York Times quoted only critics of the policy in its May 15 article. Slatedenounced the decision, stating that President Trump was holding $8.8 billion in global aid “hostage.

59,115,995....The number of babies killed since Roe vs Wade. I don't believe that lack of money could kill this many babies.

"In the year I was born, U.S. vital statistics reported that more than 700 women died from abortion. The true number was substantially higher, and the population of the country was less than half of that today. In 2010, the most recent year with data available, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 10 deaths from abortion nationwide. Why the profound change? The principal reason was the legalization of abortion in America. Childbirth-related deaths have decreased over the decades, but not so dramatically. To me, it seems clear: Access to safe, legal abortion saved women’s lives."
Under the Trump plan, saving lives will be punished.

If citing facts is wrong, let me be wrong! Thanks for the troll.

America needs more deaths by illegal abortion!

Today's funding of Planned Parent hood is killing infants and a few women. So if we defund them then infants by the huge numbers will not die or motherswont die. This will also stop the illegal baby parts industry that is selling These parts.

This will stop nothing, abortions were around long before anyone reading this comment or their grandparents were even born and will be around for as long as women get pregnant when they do not want a child.
You are just making it so these women have to go to unsafe places to get their abortion,. If we are going to defund something that has been already approved by the Supreme Court then I think it should be done with a referendum so everyone has a say not the few pro lifers who want to make it illegal, I do not know when you will understand you can not stop people from doing what ever they want to do. Thousands of women died in dirty back rooms having abortions before it became legal. that is exactly where you wi9ll be driving them by making abortion illegal. Where is any proof that any baby parts were sold, I do believe there was an indept investigation which proved the edited videos were all wrong.

ATTENTION: May I please have everybody's attention? I have recently been given highly classified information concerning President Trump. My most reliable source in the White House has informed me that President Trump prefers the end of a roll of toilet paper to be on the outside, instead of the inside.

The headline for this piece makes no sense, It says that people will die because abortions won't be funded. International abortions yet. Not our responsibility.

What is abortion if it is not KILLING. Killing unborn. Who knows they could be Einsteins, George Washingtons, Abe Lincolns. The liberal that wrote the article needs to use their head.
