Biden Signs Executive Order Restoring U.S. Money to Fund Abortions Globally

Biden’s signature will once again permit U.S. aid money to fund groups that “provide or promote abortion around the globe”

As former President Trump said in his speech Sunday night during the final night of the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), Biden has proven himself to be extreme leftist. He’s more radical than we thought, signing things we never even debated about or talked about, lamented Trump as he explained Biden has put “America last” in his first 100 days in office.

One such executive order Biden signed allows for the United States to fund abortions globally. The executive order signed Thursday afternoon reversed the “Mexico City policy” first put in place by President Ronald Reagan “in an effort to ensure that taxpayers were not required to indirectly fund abortion procedures performed in other countries” reports National Review.

However, Biden’s signature will once again permit U.S. aid money to fund groups that “provide or promote abortion around the globe.” National Review notes the policy has “been undone via executive order by every subsequent Democratic administration and reinstated by each Republican one” since Reagan.

Trump expanded the policy to “include not only family planning funds distributed by the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development but also all foreign-health assistance provided by government agencies, including the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, and the Defense Department.”

The Trump administration’s expanded policy, “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance” significantly impacting the amount of U.S. funding covered by the abortion prohibition increasing from about $600 million to nearly $9 billion.

Public-opinion polls show most Americans do not support the United States funding abortions in other countries. A new poll out over the weekend from Marist and the Knights of Columbus “found that more than three-quarters of Americans oppose using U.S. aid money to fund abortions overseas.” The same poll also found “voters in Biden’s own party disagree with him on this issue.”

      The only problem to me seems like illegals have babies one after another. I don’t seem them going for abortions. Although I see them get more money for food stamps child care credits. The more they have babies the bigger the check. While taxpayers had babies who they can afford.

      I don’t remember being asked if you could spend my money on illegal abortions anywhere

    This man is definitely not a Christian if he is so anxious to not only allow babies to be murdered but to pay for murdering babies around the world! Or shall I say…making us taxpayers pay for it. I guess the pen is light when the money doesn’t come out of your pocket Joe. Do you have no morals? No conscious? May God help us all.

      This is the man who claims to be a devout practicing Catholic! He couldn’t define any one of those terms! Why doesn’t he give up the charade and admit that he’s a degenerate! Everyone already knows it! What will he say on his day of reckoning when he’ll be required to explain his actions while on God’s earth?

    It’s not Biden, he can barely string a few words together coherently.
    Biden’s handlers just want to push the agenda as far left as is humanly possible. All the better to take America down and prep it for the Socialist revolution they’re planning

      Totally agree. I knew it was going to be pretty. But this is a sh1t show. The lies in media, tech missing on Constitution, don’t take responsibility. This is a nightmare. Remember this, dollar will crumble in 14 to 20 months. Don’t drink the Koolaid, CNN peed in it.

    I am deeply saddened by the road the U.S. has decided to travel.

    Leftists have no concept over money…so long as they are spending other-people’s money.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
