Members of European Parliament condemn Trump’s reinstatement of Mexico City policy

February 16, 2017

A large majority of members of the European Parliament have supported an amendment condemning President Donald Trump’s decision to ban the use of federal funds to promote abortion overseas.

The members called upon the EU to help “finance the access to birth control, legal and safe abortion, using both national as well as EU development funding, in order to fill the financing gap left after the Trump’s administration’s moves.”

    The EU is made up non-elected members which answer to themselves. Others should follow the UK. They have been a sore for Christian living and behavior for years. Time to say goodbye.

    This is another sign that the decision was the correct one. Those EU people keep showing their (nasty) colors.

    Well, if the EU is so rich as to pump some more money into a nefarious enterprise it is clear that the amount pumped in will be repaid, with huge interest, to the Christian culture pumped out.

    Seems that Great Britain has it right for once. The EU is an obstacle to Christian living.
