Rep. Chris Smith: Respect the Precious Lives of Unborn Children in US Foreign Aid

WASHINGTON, DC— On Monday the Trump Administration announced the implementation of the expanded Mexico City Policy, now known as “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance.” Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) issued the following statement:

Today’s implementation by the State Department of the ‘Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance’—the reinstatement and expansion of Ronald Reagan’s 1984 Mexico City Policy—ensures that U.S. taxpayers will no longer subsidize non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that perform or promote abortion on demand.

This humane policy seeks to respect and protect the precious lives of unborn girls and boys from the violence of abortion.

The new policy doesn’t cut global health assistance by so much as a penny.”
