Trump Reinstates Mexico City Policy


This week, President Trump issued an executive order reinstating the “Mexico City Policy,” which prohibits federal international aid funding (USAID) for organizations that provide or promote abortion. Trump’s order restores the policy initially established in 1984 by then-President Ronald Reagan.

So, what does this mean?

  1. Organizations that provide or promote abortion–including the International Planned Parenthood Federation–will not receive federal international aid (USAID) funding.
  2. Organizations funded by USAID cannot present abortion as a method of family planning.
  3. Our taxpayer dollars will not be used to exert pressure on foreign governments to legalize or expand abortion.
