The Trump administration on Monday announced that it would begin implementing an expanded Mexico City Policy, which pro-life leaders hailed as a key step to curtailing abortion funding.
The expansion means that more forms of foreign funding will be directed to go to organizations that do not perform or support abortions overseas.
"With the implementation of Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance, we have officially ceased exporting abortion to foreign nations," Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, praised the announcement on Monday.
Back in January, President Donald Trump reinstated the "Mexico City Policy" which prohibits U.S. funding of non-government organizations that perform or promote abortions, through family planning funds.
