On Thursday, Joe Biden signed an executive order forcing Americans to fund International Planned Parenthood, which kills children in the womb all across the world and lobbies in favor of international abortion.
“Today, I’m about to sign two executive orders…to undo the damage Trump has done,” Biden said while signing the anti-life orders.
Later, the White House released a statement about the orders:
Across the country and around the world, people — particularly women, Black, Indigenous and other people of color, LGBTQ+ people, and those with low incomes — have been denied access to reproductive health care. President Biden is also issuing a Presidential Memorandum to protect and expand access to comprehensive reproductive health care. The memorandum reflects the policy of the Biden-Harris Administration to support women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights in the United States, as well as globally. Like memoranda issued by President Clinton and President Obama before him, it immediately rescinds the global gag rule, also referred to as the Mexico City Policy, which bars international non-profits that provide abortion counseling or referrals from receiving U.S. funding. In recognition of the additional work necessary to protect access to reproductive health care, President Biden’s memorandum also directs the Department of Health and Human Services to take immediate action to consider whether to rescind regulations under its Title X family planning program.
“Nationally, Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar company that does more than 340,000 abortions a year. International Planned Parenthood, which Biden’s order will force Americans to fund, operates in 164 countries. According to its most recent annual report, in 2019, IPPF killed nearly 1.4 million babies in abortions. This number is roughly forty-six times the number of abortions committed in 2005, which totaled to 30,011,” according to LifeNews.
Despite Biden’s executive order, a majority of Americans disagree with his stance on abortion, with most Americans believing in limits on abortion after a certain gestational age.
