Statement by Rachel Laser, Third Way's Culture Program Director, on the Mexico City Policy
Washington, DC – We applaud the President’s repeal of the Mexico City policy. Restoring U.S. foreign family planning aid to many of the world’s poorest countries is a life-affirming, common ground policy that must transcend abortion politics. This repeal is a life-affirming action because it will fight the spread of HIV/AIDS, prevent thousands of pregnancy-related deaths and illnesses, save the lives of countless children due to better spaced pregnancies, and reduce the number of abortions worldwide.
