Republicans and some evangelical Christians said it fulfilled Trump’s promise to be a pro-life President.
Southern Baptist Russell Moore is among the leading US evangelical Christians who have today welcomed Donald Trump’s reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy that blocks funding to organisations that carry out or promote abortions.
Trump signed an executive order that blocks foreign aid or federal funding for NGOs that provide or promote abortions.
Announcing the policy on Monday White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters at his first daily briefing: “The President, it’s no secret, has made it very clear that he’s a pro-life president.
“He wants to stand up for all Americans, including the unborn, and I think the reinstatement of this policy is not just something that echoes that value, but respects taxpayer funding as well.”
