President Trump Signs Executive Order Stopping Taxpayer Dollars from Funding Pro-Abortion Organizations Overseas



The new Trump Administration has gone straight to work in stopping federal tax dollars from going to murderous organizations like the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). This morning, President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy by executive order. The Mexico City Policy prohibits all federal funding for foreign nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that promote or perform abortion as a method of family planning (except in cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother). Back in …

Get the U.S. Out of the United Nations Population Fund



The U.S. Government wastes billions on programs and initiatives that American taxpayers don’t want and certainly don’t need. But no example of government waste is more disgraceful than the tens of millions of dollars handed over each year to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)—an organization that for decades has been working hand-in-glove with China’s brutal and repressive population control policy. With the exception of the Obama administration, every other administration since the Reagan administration …

Your Contribution to China’s One-Child Policy



Two weeks ago, the US State Department ranked China as one of the worst countries in the world for sex-trafficking, giving the one-child policy as the root cause. This analysis is spot on. It is because of the one-child policy that Chinese parents are forced to artificially limit their childbearing. Many choose to have boys over girls. China is currently short more than 37,000,000 women as female infanticide, sex-selective abortion, and neglect have ripped through …

May You Rest in Peace, Dr. Nathanson



This past year has been one of personal loss for me. This past April our founder, Father Paul Marx, O.S.B., Ph.D., passed away in the odor of sanctity. Now we have lost another great pro-lifer—and personal friend of mine—Dr. Bernard Nathanson. I first met Dr. Nathanson, fittingly enough, at a 1985 conference in Washington, D.C., organized by Father Marx. Dr. Nathanson had just released his groundbreaking video, “The Silent Scream,” which shows exactly what goes …

What Would Ronald Reagan Do?



The Gipper would call for the passage of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. The passage of time shrinks the reputation of some presidents (think here of Jimmy Carter, who just won’t go away) while it enlarges the reputation of others. No presidency in modern times now shines brighter than that of Ronald Reagan, an American original who lowered taxes, limited the size of government, and won the Cold War. Even Barack Obama is …

Sneak Attack on the Mexico City Policy



While all eyes are glued to the health care debate, one senator decided to take a swipe at an old target: the Mexico City Policy. The Reagan-era Mexico City Policy was designed to get the U.S. out of the international abortion business. Under this policy, international organizations that perform, promote, or lobby for the legalization of abortion are ineligible for U.S. tax dollars. The idea behind the Policy is that abortion is always and everywhere …

January 23 — Exporting Abortion And The Ugly American



23 January 2009 — Vol. 11/No. 03 If you’re old enough, you may remember the 1958 novel called The Ugly American. Or perhaps you saw the 1963 movie by the same name, starring Marlon Brando. The "uglies" in the novel were arrogant and ignorant American aid workers who ran roughshod over local values and institutions. The phrase remains in current usage, referring to almost any loud, boorish American traveling abroad and insisting on having his …

USAID Denies Funding to Abortion Group: PRI Applauds Action



Administrator for Global Health Dr. Kent Hill, has banned cooperation with U.K. based Marie Stopes International (MSI), one of the world’s largest purveyors of abortions, on the grounds that it is complicit in “coercive abortion and involuntary sterilizations’” in China. MSI denies that it supports China’s coercive policies, but its aggressive promotion of abortion, and its longstanding collaboration with China’s coercive program leave little doubt that it is not only aware of the massive human …
