Obama Administration Quick to Exploit Women in Developing Nations Says Americans United for Life Action
Date:1/23/2009

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It is widely reported that President Obama will today rescind the "Mexico City Policy," a rule that prohibited the use of taxpayer funds to promote abortion in other countries.

Under the Obama administration, taxpayer dollars will be given to organizations, such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation, that promote abortion around the world, including in countries where abortion is illegal.

Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President & CEO of AUL Action said, "What a terrible way to begin a new administration: with an abortion business bailout that will exploit women in developing countries for political ends. We should not export the tragedy of abortion to other nations, and we certainly shouldn't do so via the hard-earned dollars of American taxpayers."

Denise Burke, AUL Action's Vice President of Legal Affairs stated, "Pro-abortion organizations like the International Planned Parenthood Federation are actively working to impose radically pro-abortion laws on developing nations, showing no regard for the will of the people in these countries. This move is a significant step backwards in respecting the sovereignty of nations, in empowering women, and in protecting unborn."

Regarding the possibility that Congress may seek to further expand federal funding of international abortion providers, Daniel McConchie, AUL Action's Vice President for Government Affairs said, "We will oppose any legislation to expand the use of taxpayer funding to support abortion or abortion providers overseas. Any vote on this will issue that comes before Congress will be scored by AUL Action."

On January 16, 78 pro-life members of Congress sent a letter to then President-elect Obama and his transition team urging him to continue the Mexico City policy. The letter is available at
