Trump’s Anti-Abortion Policy – Just like he promised, Trump has endorsed an anti-abortion policy. In the same vein, his pick for education secretary has shared her intention to return prayers to American schools.
For the pro-life activists, Trump’s recent move against abortion will sure “make America great again”.
As it was during Reagan’s administration, Trump has revived the anti-abortion policy. Reagan’s regime stopped the granting of American foreign aid to health groups who projected abortion as a means of family-planning (Now re-phrased as Planned Parenthood).
Basically, the United States Law does not use taxpayer’s money to sponsor abortion services within and outside the country.
Trump’s policy had gone a step further by prohibiting financial grants to NGOs in poor countries who “offer abortion counselling or if they advocate the right to seek abortion in their countries.”
This coincides with the worries of Pope Francis as he disapproved the unjust ways of manipulating vulnerable societies into buying into policies that are not ingenious with their already existing cultural systems.
The Pontiff last year condemned the subtle growth of western cultural imperialism. It was spotted that Western NGOs give health aids with strings attached.
Some foreign health groups in Africa and the Middle East seized the opportunity of providing health care to propagate pro-abortion and LGBT ideologies under the cover of democracy.
On Monday Trump reminded Americans once again that he was going to be a pro-life president (and by extension, an anti-abortion president as well).
According to the president when he said he would be a President for all Americans, that included the unborn Americans as well.
Expressing his delight over the new pro-life development, Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, Washington, had this to say:
“We applaud President Trump for putting an end to taxpayer funding of groups that promote the killing of unborn children in developing nations.”
On a similar note Trump’s pick for the Education department, Betsy DeVos, has hinted that the age old culture of praying will return to schools like it used to be.
