President Joe Biden is expected to sign an executive order on Thursday to rescind the Mexico City Policy. This policy prohibits non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from receiving U.S. taxpayer funding if they promote or perform abortions.

The Mexico City Policy became law under Ronald Reagan in 1985 and was announced at a UN conference in Mexico City.

Since then, the law has endured a back and forth, being repealed by Democrat presidents and reinstated by Republican presidents.

Former President Donald Trump signed an order to revive it almost four years ago to the day.

Reversing Trump-Era Mexico City Policy

The Biden White House said in a statement Thursday, “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.”

It went on to say that President Biden “will protect and expand access to comprehensive reproductive health care.”

The presidential memorandum also stated that it “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.”

Americans Are Not On Board

Increasingly, more and more Americans do not want their tax dollars to go towards funding abortions anywhere.

According to a Marist/Knights of Columbus poll released Wednesday, 58% of Americans oppose or strongly oppose using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion.

This includes a majority of Independents at 65% and 31% of Democrats.

Democrats are also putting pressure on the Biden administration to repeal the Hyde Amendment. The Hyde Amendment blocks most federal tax money from paying for abortions. 

But on Tuesday, two hundred House Republicans signed a letter to protect the Hyde Amendment.

Their argument being that the Hyde Amendment prevents tax payers with moral objections to abortion from funding the procedure through Medicaid. 

The letter, written by Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) states:

“We cannot allow the Hyde Amendment and other important pro-life safeguards to be decimated by Congressional Democrats.

“Accordingly, we pledge to vote against any government funding bill that eliminates or weakens the Hyde Amendment or other current-law, pro-life appropriations provisions.”

Left-Wing Democrats Come Out In Full Force

Progressive Democrats came out swinging, arguing that the Hyde Amendment infringes on women’s rights, especially minority women to obtain abortions.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), stated, “48 years after Roe v. Wade was enacted, systemic barriers to accessing abortions and other reproductive health care still exist.”

Illinois Democrat Sean Casten also argued for taxpayer-funded abortions:
