The president of the United States of America has reinstated and signed a decree barring US federal funding for foreign NGOs that support abortion.
The restrictions prohibit
foreign non-governmental organizations that receive US family planning assistance from using non-US funding to provide abortion services, information, counseling or referrals.
They are also barred from engaging in advocacy to promote abortion.
The policy is nicknamed ‘Mexico City’ policy, and was established by former Republican President, Ronald Reagan in 1984.
