Thank President Trump for defunding abortion clinics in Africa
A couple of weeks ago, President Donald J. Trump was the very first POTUS to address the Susan B. Anthony List gala. While speaking at the podium, he quoted Jeremiah 1:5: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart."
Without a doubt, President Trump is a pro-life president. And some say he is the most pro-life president we’ve had since the terrible Roe v. Wade decision.
From his accomplishments during his 18 months in office, I think it is surely worth the discussion.
- Reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy to prevent U.S. taxpayer dollars from funding abortion clinics oversea;
- overturning the rule that forced states to fund abortion providers with taxpayer dollars;
- appointing pro-life Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court;
- prohibiting the use of Title X funding any clinic that provides abortions;
- defunding the United Nations Fund for Population and Development; and
- his pledge to fight for and sign a 20-week abortion ban bill...
just to name a few.
Each policy decision saves lives. Active citizens in Africa are using CitizenGO to thank President Trump for his pro-life policies.
The lack of funding from the U.S. government has caused Marie Stopes and Planned Parenthood to shut down 22 programs in sub-Saharan Africa, including illegal abortions clinics in Burkina Faso, a country in West Africa, and in Kenya.
I think we should join them in thanking our President. Please sign our petition to President Trump thanking him for being a pro-life President.
Two months ago, 192,604 active citizens challenged the Trump Administration to withdraw U.S. taxpayer dollars to the United Nations for development aid that promoted abortion, comprehensive sex education, or other harmful sexual practices.
The Trump Administration took the time to meet with the CitizenGO team while attending the Commission of the State of Women at the United Nations.
President Trump responded by making a brave announcement that they are discontinuing their funding to the United Nations Fund for Population and Development. The announcement came as the Trump Administration made it clear it was committed to making sure that no taxpayer dollars would go toward abortion or this harmful agenda.
While abortions are illegal in most African countries, abortions are still routinely carried out in foreign-funded clinics. Besides just performing abortions, Planned Parenthood partners with other abortion advocates like California based IPAS and Marie Stopes in order to lobby for changes in laws in Africa.
That was also being paid for with U.S. taxpayer funds.
Globally, International Planned Parenthood Federation, the international arm of Planned Parenthood, performed more than 1 million abortions in 2016, according to their 2016 annual report. According to their 2016 financial statement, they received more than $27 million from U.S. taxpayers in 2015-2016.
Active citizens have signed a countless number of petitions to President Trump on our platform to ask him to make pro-life decisions.
He keeps doing it! As he pledged during the Susan B. Anthony List gala -- He won’t stop! Join us in recognizing his pro-life work and continued agenda. Sign our petition thanking President Trump for being pro-life.
