President Trump has revoked the Presidential Memorandum
on Mexico City Policy and Assistance for Voluntary
Population Planning, which allowed voluntary abortion in
the U.S.
Trump, who has made anti-abortion policy one of his
campaign promises, announced the revocation on Monday,
according to the President’s statement issued by the White
House.
“I hereby revoke the Presidential Memorandum of January
23, 2009, for the Secretary of State and the Administrator of
the United States Agency for International Development
(Mexico City Policy and Assistance for Voluntary Population
Planning), and reinstate the Presidential Memorandum of
January 22, 2001, for the Administrator of the United States
Agency for International Development (Restoration of the
Mexico City Policy).
“I direct the Secretary of State, in coordination with the
Secretary of Health and Human Services, to the extent
allowable by law, to implement a plan to extend the
requirements of the reinstated Memorandum to global
health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies.
“I further direct the Secretary of State to take all necessary
actions, to the extent permitted by law, to ensure that U.S.
taxpayer dollars do not fund organisations or programmes
that support or participate in the management of a program
of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”
“The memorandum was not intended to, and does not,
create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural,
enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the
United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its
officers, employees, or agents, or any other person
