On January 23, President Trump re-enacted a policy that’s been in place under every Republican president since 1984 under Ronald Reagan. It’s officially known as the “Mexico City policy,” and it blocks federal aid to foreign NGOs that promote abortion through advice, referrals and the like.
On March 8, a sizable group of protesters gathered to voice their opposition to this GOP practice. The problem? Apparently, most of them had never even heard of the “Mexico City policy.” Luckily, TheDCNF’s Ted Goodman was there to help them.
