A typically deluded feminist reacts to Trump’s reinstatement of prohibitions on U.S. funded organisations spruiking abortions as a means of birth control:
In one of his first official acts as U.S. President, Donald Trump has signed an anti-abortion Executive Order. The photo of Trump, surrounded by 8 male staffers, shows him reinstating a ‘Global Gag Order’, first introduced by Ronald Reagan in 1984, which blocks U.S. funding to foreign organisations that perform or provide advice on abortions.
In reality, the ban on expenditure of U.S. government funds for birth control abortions predates 1984 and is unaffected by Trump’s order:
Since the enactment of legislation in 1973, recipients of U.S. family planning assistance have been legally prohibited from supporting abortion as a method of family planning using U.S. funds.
The femtards flaying Trump conveniently ignore Obama’s refusal to address the U.S. ban on foreign abortion funding:
Some 81 House Democrats have urged President Obama to tell agencies that the Helms amendment does not ban all U.S. foreign aid-related abortions, but permits those in cases of rape, incest and when the life of the mother is endangered.
Obama’s second-in-charge was strenuously anti-abortion:
The Biden Amendment
No foreign assistance funds may be used to pay for any biomedical research which relates, in whole or in part, to methods of, or the performance of, abortions or involuntary sterilization as a means of family planning.
Biden is as anti-abortion as they come:
In 1982, then-Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., voted for the Human Life Federalism Amendment, which contradicted Roe by declaring that “the right to an abortion is not secured by this Constitution.”
It is perfectly reasonable for the U.S. government to empower women to be in control of their own bodies by providing pregnancy prevention advice rather than assisting them in disposing of unwanted children after the fact.
