Pro-life advocates denounce Biden’s order to restore US funding of abortions worldwide

Over the course of President Joe Biden’s first days in office, a range of executive orders drove home the fact that his administration will be starkly different than that of former President Donald Trump.

As an executive memorandum on Thursday revealed, those disparities are especially evident in regard to the topic of abortion.

“Support women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health”

With the stroke of his pen, U.S. taxpayers are now set to resume funding for international abortions, an act that prompted an immediate backlash among many of the nation’s pro-life advocates.

Biden’s memorandum this week softened the reality of his action by couching it in terms of “protecting women’s health at home and abroad,” arguing that repealing the so-called Mexico City expanded under the Trump administration amounted to “onerous requirements” that negatively impacted the health of women overseas.

Along with rescinding the policy that prevented U.S. funding for international groups that advocate for or perform abortions, Biden’s move also authorized a full review of related Title X funding restrictions.

According to a “fact sheet” the administration released in conjunction with the memo, the revocation was necessary in order to aid women worldwide who “have been denied access to reproductive health care” and to “support women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights in the United States, as well as globally.”

At a signing ceremony, Biden argued that his goal was to “undo the damage” that his predecessor had caused by his support of the policy.

“The inherent dignity of all persons, born and unborn”

As TownHall noted, however, anti-abortion activist groups are up in arms about the move and describe it as an insult to those who seek to defend the rights of the unborn. One such critic is Jeanne Mancini, the president of the March for Life.

“Rescinding the Mexico City Policy on the eve of the March for Life is a deeply disturbing move, especially when the president says he wants national unity,” she tweeted. “It goes against the wishes of an overwhelming majority of Americans.”

Mancini pointed to surveys showing “that 77% of Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortion overseas” in making her argument that the U.S. “government should never force taxpayers to fund abortions, either here or abroad, but should work to protect the inherent dignity of all persons, born and unborn.”

Carl Anderson of the pro-life Knights of Columbus shared a similar take, bolstered by the results of a recent poll the group conducted in conjunction with Marist.

He described a “supermajority of Americans” across ideological lines who confirm that Biden’s action “does not unite Americans but instead is contrary to an area of bipartisan consensus in an otherwise divisive issue.”

  1. all this money he is giving away — does not belong to him, that is tax payer’s money he is suppose to be the guardian of the tax payer’s money.
    If, all this money was HIS, I could guarantee he would think many times before giving it away.
    Why can’t the senate do something to stop all this FREE stuff he is giving away to other countries. Where is all the FREE stuff he campaign about for the American people.
    I did not vote for this person, I am sure all the people that did are very sorry, and wish they could withdraw their votes. To Late Suckers, Haven’t you been told that there is NO FREE LUNCH!!! If, you hear FREE, it will not materialize.

    1. I am a Christian who doesn’t believe that abortion should be used as contraception. Don’t get me wrong, if the baby can’t survive or is a danger to the mothers life, I will drive you to your gynecologist to abort the baby, but I think being able to just kill a child is morally wrong. Instead of spending this money to kill innocent babies, why not take money and give birth control to women!!! Why do people who believe abortion is wrong unless certain circumstances warrant it have to pay and be a part of something I don’t believe in? Why am I forced to pay for someone else’s irresponsible behaviour? Why do I have to pay to murder innocent lives? So much for the land of the free. Being forced to do something I don’t believe in takes my freedom away!!!

      1. You agree to Murder under circumstances. Murder is Murder . Abortion is Murder !!!. There are Millions of people that would love to adopt a child in the USA But it is easier to adopt a Animal or go to a foreign country and adopt a child. I was one of the lucky ones that was taken and raised from a Faster Home.

  2. This action on the part of the I-President Biden (I for Illegitimate) to fund abortions worldwide is part of the covert New World Order and One World Government of the ultra rich scheming to reduce the population in the world of, what they see, as trash human beings… Donald Trump was putting a dagger in the heart of those Elitist’s Globalization movement…that’s why they were committing their careers and lives to destroying the world’s last hope of remaining free, independent and alive…

    1. The Catholic church of today is filled with a bevvy of self-serving apostates that mock the very essence of Christian faith: the sacrament of Holy Communion was received by the devout only after a contrite confession to God, and the aroma of Frankincense that once purified the proceedings is now supplanted by the stench of mendacity.

  5. AMERICA! PLEASE, ‘STAND UP’ & DEMAND THE ELIMINATION OF ‘ABORTION ON DEMAND’! THESE ARE ‘OUR CHILDREN! PLACE THESE INNOCENT LITTLE ONES, IN FOSTER CARE OR ADOPTION-DO NOT ‘KILL’ THEM! STOP THIS HORRIFIC, MUDER OF THE INNOCENT! WE ARE NOT ‘CHINA’-YET!

  6. Abortion is legalized murder! Piglosi, Biden, and all pro choice fools have the blood of the innocents on their hands! God will NOT forgive that! His admonition is do not spill innocent blood! Yet, that is what they are doing, and gloating about it! Evil, evil, evil!

  7. Paying to have people that want abortions to be their way of birth control should never be forced upon Christians that don’t believe in abortions. When you take your 6 yr. old to abortion rallies and hand them a flag that says “I believe in abortions” hasn’t told that child that it means killing babies. My great granddaughters go on those marches and I think it is despicable. Their mother thinks GOD has no right in their lives and their grandmother smiles and congradulates them for marching the killing march.

  8. This is no different than what Mao or Stalin did They starved and killed millions of adults These are babies that they are killing with impunity I can’t they are using our tax dollars to fund murder You know when Marines ro any service came home from Vietnam and they called them baby killers and pat on them Now you are cheering these people that are treating little children like they are going to a slaughter house God will punish you for this I do not wish anything bad to come on you however I do think that the people involved will not have a good ending I think all involved will suffer and rightfully so Low life scum of the Earth Maybe they can get some sort of trophy Maybe a babies leg or arm This is progressive Think about it morons that could have been you but your parents had love and understanding n their side You people are afraid to say anything for fear of peer pressure So what

  9. Isn’t it about time WE stop funding these idiots. It is the money WE pay in taxes that fund the DemoCommunists.

  10. WE WISH BIDEN WOULD NEVER SPEAK OF PRESIDENT TRUMP.
    ABORTION IS ONLY NEEDED IF THE MOTHERS LIFE IS IN DANGER.TRUMP WAS THE BEST EVER.
    HERE COMES IDIOT BIDEN, GIVE A ABORTION TO ANYONE, DOWNRIGHT DISGUSTING.
