Restores taxpayer funding of abortion abroad
To win the Democratic Party nomination, Joe Biden had to at least pay lip service to his party's far-left base, the faction that wants abortion even after delivery, climate-change measures that kill American jobs and the suppression of opposing opinions.
But already, in a flurry of nearly three dozen executive actions in his first week, it's clear he intends to fulfill his campaign promises, including on abortion.
On Thursday, Biden will sign a measure concerning "comprehensive reproductive health care" – or the destruction of unborn children – that will immediately rescind the so-called Mexico City policy put in place by President Trump blocks federal funding for non-governmental organizations that provide abortion services in other nations.
The White House said Biden's concern for "women's and girls' sexual and reproductive health and rights" was the trigger for his demand that taxpayers fund abortion industry giants such as Marie Stopes International and Planned Parenthood.
But a poll this week shows that most Americans favor restrictions on abortion and oppose tax dollars going to support abortions in foreign lands.
The Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll found 76% of want "significant restrictions on abortion" and 77% oppose or strongly oppose using tax dollars to support abortion abroad.
