Alert: Senate Bill Would Permanently Fund Foreign Abortions Using U.S. Tax Dollars

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The Senate version of a federal spending bill controlling the State Department would make President Barack Obama's decision to overturn the Mexico City Policy permanent. Obama overturned the policy during his first week in office and opened the door to funding groups that perform and promote abortions overseas.

Typically, the Mexico City Policy is an executive order that changes over time depending on whether a pro-life or pro-abortion advocate is in the White House.

While President George W. Bush prohibited the abortion funding, Obama immediately restored it. Read more.

Take Action: Contact your two U.S. senators and urge strong opposition to the Lautenberg amendment against the Mexico City Policy. Urge lawmakers to remove the amendment from the State, Foreign Operations Appropriations bill and to vote against the bill if it is not removed. Go to http://www.senate.gov/ for contact information for your senators.
