Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06), a registered nurse and member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, released the following statement praising President Trump’s reinstatement of the Mexico City policy which prohibits taxpayer funding of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that provide or promote abortions overseas:

“With this compassionate executive order, President Trump has turned the page from a sad chapter in his predecessor’s legacy and has already started to make good on his promises to the millions of pro-life Americans that helped him ascend to this office. On the heels of the 44th anniversary of the heartbreaking Roe vs. Wade decision, this order gives us renewed hope of things to come. I applaud President Trump for protecting the conscience rights of American taxpayers and prioritizing federal funding for organizations that protect life over those that take it away. I look forward to continuing to work with the Trump Administration to restore a culture of life that upholds the dignity of our most vulnerable, both at home and abroad,” said Congressman Diane Black.
