President Barack Obama on Friday reversed the Mexico City Policy, which means U.S. tax dollars now will fund international groups that perform or promote abortions.
On Wednesday, "President Obama issued executive orders banning the torture of terrorists but today signed an order that exports the torture of unborn children around the world," said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.
The Mexico City Policy was put in place by President Ronald Reagan, reversed by President Bill Clinton and reinstated by President George W. Bush.
In an accompanying statement, Obama said he would also work with Congress to restore U.S. funding support for the United Nations Population Fund — which lost its funding under Bush because of its participation in China's forced abortion and sterilization policy.
Ask President Barack Obama to stop using your tax dollars to support abortion overseas.
