Washington, D.C. (Jan. 3, 2018) – Today, the new U.S. House Democrat majority has indicated that its priority is the U.S. taxpayer funding of abortion facilities around the world. In their proposed funding bill to end the partial government shutdown (the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019), House Democrats seek to repeal the Mexico City Policy and increase funding for the United Nations Population Fund, known for supporting China’s one-and two-child policies of coerced abortions.
Statement from Live Action Founder and President, Lila Rose:
“The first day on the job, the new House Democrat majority has shown that its true priority is the U.S. taxpayer funding of abortion facilities around the world and increased funding for the U.N. Population Fund, which supports China’s coerced abortion policies. This move shows that House Democrats are so radically pro-abortion that they are more concerned with pushing their abortion agenda on the American people than finding common ground to end the government shutdown.
