US Senate committee approves bid for permanent repeal of 'Mexico City' policy

Catholic World News - August 03, 2010

The US Senate Appropriations committee has approved a measure that would repeal the “Mexico City policy” barring taxpayer support for organizations that promote abortion.

Since the “Mexico City policy” was adopted by President Reagan in 1984, it has been rolled back by executive orders by Presidents Clinton and Obama, and reinstated by President Bush. The legislative measure, if approved by the full membership of Congress, would make the repeal permanent. Last year the full Senate rejected a similar effort.

    And what statements are coming forth from our Catholic bishops condemning this? Oh, I forgot. They have bigger fish to fry in Arizona.
