Trump Signs Executive Order Reinstating Ban On Funding And Promoting Abortions Overseas

President Donald Trump issued an executive order Monday reinstating a Republican policy that would ban U.S. aid to groups that provide or promote abortions overseas.

Known as the “Mexico City policy” or the “global gag rule,” the measure came one day after the 44th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion across the country.

The measure has ping-ponged back and forth into effect and out of effect depending on the party in power at the White House. Since Republican President Ronald Reagan first issued the policy, it was rescinded by two Democratic presidents, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

House Speaker Paul Ryan praised the executive action, saying in a statement that Trump has already followed through on some of his campaign promises.
