Heritage President Applauds State Department Expansion of Pro-Life Policy

Mar 26, 2019 1 min read

WASHINGTON—Heritage Foundation President Kay Coles James released the following statement regarding the State Department’s announcement to expand the Mexico City policy:

“I applaud President Trump and Secretary Pompeo for the administration’s continued commitment to respecting the dignity of human life. The United States can support global health programs without assisting, in any way, entities that are engaged in the abortion industry.”

“Thanks to the secretary’s leadership, we will no longer tolerate foreign organizations accepting U.S. taxpayer dollars in one hand while giving them to organizations that perform or promote abortion with the other.”

“I am also grateful that the State Department will fully enforce federal policy that ensures U.S. taxpayer dollars are not used to lobby for abortion in other countries.”

“Public policy must always respect the rights of the most vulnerable and innocent among us, including the unborn.”
