Opinion Piece Addresses Expanded Mexico City Policy, Codifying Policy

Washington Times: U.S. foreign policy promotes real global health
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.)

“…From restoring and expanding Ronald Reagan’s ‘Mexico City policy’ (officially known as the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy [PLGHA]) that ensures U.S. taxpayer monies will not fund [foreign] non-government organizations (NGOs) that perform or actively promote abortion …, this president has shown an unrivaled commitment to protecting unborn human life. We believe it is important to ensure that no backwards steps are taken to reverse these pro-life policies. … The Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Act of 2019 (introduced by Rep. Foxx) … codifies the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy so that it would remain the law of the land no matter who is president…” (4/3).
