The release states, “The Trump administration does not recognize abortion as a method of family planning and refuses to fund abortion in global health assistance” and “HHS worked with the Department of State to implement President Trump’s restored and expanded Mexico City Policy, now known as ‘Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance,’ to ensure that, consistent with applicable law, global health assistance administered by HHS is not provided to foreign non-governmental organizations that provide or promote abortion as a method of family planning” (1/18).
