Trump cuts all health care aid to international groups performing or promoting abortion

TillersonThe Trump administration announced a massive expansion Monday of the pro-life Mexico City Policy, issuing guidelines that will strip billions of dollars in aid from international groups that perform or promote abortion.

Originally a ban covering roughly $600 million in family planning money, the Trump policy now applies to all international health care aid doled out by the U.S. government — nearly $9 billion.

The administration said the same amount of money will be paid out but will go only to groups that pledge not to perform or promote abortion as part of their family planning activities.

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson on Monday approved the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance plan, which broadens the scope of the Mexico City Policy.

    Why are we PAYING for Healthcare to ANY other Country? The Democrat Socialist, says all other Countries have free healthcare, like Germany, Canada, Europe as a whole …. so, now we know why it is free! The American Tax payers have been paying for it! CUT ALL FOREIGN AID of types, TO ALL COUNTRIES, IT IS TIME FOR THEM TO PAY THEIR OWN FRIGHT!

    This sounds like President Trump is playing a shell game that is meant to appease conservatives while not actually doing anything for the American people. If the U.S. is still providing the same amount of money, but only to organizations that do not perform abortions, what is to prevent those organizations from passing the money on to organizations that do perform abortions? We need cuts in spending, not shifting our money around so it is more difficult to keep track of where it is going.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST. PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON THERE.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.
