Collins Statement on Ban on Federal Funding of Abortions Abroad


January 23, 2017

WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump today issued an executive order that re-institutes the Mexico City policy, which bans NGOs that provide or promote abortion overseas from receiving federal funding. Congressman Doug Collins issued the following statement in response:

“Republican men and women have consistently labored to protect the lives of unborn individuals in the United States and have opposed the use of federal dollars to support the abortion agenda overseas.

“Our people and our president value life, and today’s executive order continues our commitment to this human rights issue domestically and abroad. U.S. government funds should not be used to promote an agenda that millions of Americans find morally unthinkable, and President Trump has taken a step to that end.”
