Fauci says Biden reversing Trump rule barring taxpayer dollars to overseas abortion providers

Top
infectious
disease
expert

Dr.
Anthony
Fauci
announced
Thursday
that

President
Biden
will
roll
back
a
Trump-era
policy
that
banned
taxpayers’
dollars
from
going
to
international
groups that
perform
abortions
or
provide

abortion
information. 

US
VOWS
TO
AID
WHO
IN
COROANVIRUS
RESPONSE:
FAUCI

Fauci,
the
newly
appointed
chief
medical
adviser
to Biden,
said
the
move
was
in
line
with
the
new
administration’s
undertaking
to
support
and
strengthen
health
care
systems
around
the
world. 

“It
will
be
our
policy
to
support
women’s
and
girls’
sexual
and
reproductive
health
and
reproductive
rights
in
the
United
States,
as
well
as
globally,”
Fauci said
at
the World
Health
Organization (WHO)
executive
board
meeting
on
Thursday. 

“To
that
end,
President
Biden
will
be
revoking
the
Mexico
City
policy
in
the
coming
days,
as
part
of
his
broader
commitment
to
protect
women’s
health
and
advance
gender
equality
at
home
and
around
the
world.”

HEAD
OF
US
BISHOPS’
CONFERENCE
WARNS
BIDEN
WOULD
‘ADVANCE
MORAL
EVILS
AND
THREATEN
HUMAN
LIFE’

Fauci’s
appearance
at
the
WHO
meeting
signaled
the

commitment
of
the
U.S.
to
remain
a
part
of
WHO,
despite
former
President
Donald
Trump’s
efforts
to
sever
the
relationship
and
withdraw
from
the
organization. 

The
Mexico
City
policy
under
Trump applied
broadly
to
organizations
receiving
U.S.
global
health
assistance and
cut
off
about
$8.8
billion to
groups
working
on
HIV/AIDS,
malaria,
maternal
and
child
health,
reproductive
issues and
global
health.

For
decades
Republicans
have
implemented
the
ban
and
Democrats
have
rescinded
it.
Biden’s
decision
mimics
that
of former
President
Barack
Obama,
who
lifted
the
ban
when
he
took
office
in
2009.
