[LifeNews] Rising in the polls for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders is feeling his oats and his campaign released today a list of executive orders he would sign on Day 1 if he were to become president. One of the top agenda items on his list is forcing Americans to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
The Washington Post reviewed an internal campaign document from the Sanders campaign, which shows overturning President Trump’s pro-life policy is one of the first things he will do as president. Sanders would immediately sign an executive order to that effect.
During his first week in office, President Donald Trump issued an executive order known as the Mexico City Policy or the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Act that revoked taxpayer funding to the International Planned Parenthood abortion business.
The policy prohibits taxpayer funding to international groups that promote and/or provide abortions overseas, the biggest of which is the International Planned Parenthood Federation. Trump’s decision applied to nearly nine billion dollars in U.S. taxpayer funds to foreign non-governmental organizations. The policy ensures U.S. funds continue to go to health care, humanitarian relief, and even family planning; it only blocks funding to those groups like IPPF that perform or promote abortion in other nations. Ultimately, that cost Planned Parenthood’s international abortion company $100 million.
Since that order, the Trump administration has expanded it to cover additional foreign funding – disqualifying the abortion giant from other taxpayer revenue streams.
