Advancing The Sanctity Of Human Life On Capitol Hill

Will You Fund Abortions Overseas?

Sep 18, 2019

Do you want your taxpayer dollars being used to kill an unborn child in the U.S. or overseas?

Do you want to advertise abortions internationally and fund research on new abortifacients?

Should doctors and nurses be forced to perform or assist in abortions?

If not, the U.S. Senate needs to hear from you today.

The Senate is currently locked in a battle over HR 2740, the House Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2020. The bill allocates millions of taxpayer dollars for various pro-abortion measures not only here in the U.S., but abroad as well.

HR 2740:

  • Overturns the Mexico City Policy. The Mexico City Policy was passed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. In order for nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to receive federal funds, they had to agree that they would not perform or actively promote abortions in other countries. HR 2740 does away with this requirement.
  • Demands that no less than 750 million dollars be spent on “international family planning,” including abortions and abortifacients.
  • Allows the United Nations Population Fund (previously known as the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA)) to spend up to 55 million dollars on abortions overseas. The UNFPA has done work for years in countries, such as China, where it is well known that coercive practices such as forced abortion and sterilizations take place.
  • Allocates tax dollars for new research on contraceptives and abortifacients.
  • Includes the Global HER (Health, Empowerment and Rights) Act and allows tax dollars to be spent on advertising abortions internationally.
  • Blocks the “Protecting Statutory Conscience Rights in Health Care” rule, which currently protects the right of health care providers to abstain from providing or participating in abortions, sterilizations, or assisted suicide, for reasons of conscience.
  • Elevates abortion to a “human right” and demands the U.S. State Department monitor and report on any “violations” of this “human right.” 

Senate leadership needs to hear loud and clear that taxpayer dollars should not be funding abortion. Click the button below to send a pre-written fax to our elected officials urging them to stop this deadly funding.

Through your fax contribution, you will not only be taking a stand against this pro-abortion budget, you will also be helping our missionaries continue actively meeting with our nation's leaders on Capitol Hill—leaders that have a direct impact on the budget.

Thank you for your prayers and support.
