'Boldly Defending Life’: Trump Admin. Expands Ban on Int'l Funding of Abortion

The Trump administration on Monday announced plans to expand a pro-life policy that prohibits U.S. government money from going to international organizations that perform or promote abortion. Under the so-called Mexico City Policy , implemented by President Trump in 2017, government money is prohibited from going to international family planning programs or organizations that perform or promote abortion. Later that year, the administration expanded the rule to include not just family planning programs but all global health assistance. The White House dubbed it the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA) rule. The newest proposed change, published Monday in the federal register, would further expand the policy to apply to foreign groups that have contracts with the U.S. government. The Kaiser Family Foundation said about 40 percent of global health aid involves contracts, according to The Hill . Pro-life organizations, such as the Susan B. Anthony List, applauded the expansion of the policy. “We thank President Trump and Secretary [of State Mike] Pompeo for boldly defending life on the world stage,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
