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.
