Question: What does it take to make a leftist totally and completely lose their shit?
Answer: Make a move, any move, to save an unborn child.
Case in point: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced today that the American taxpayer dollors spigot for overseas purveyors of slaughtering children just got slammed shut.
Pompeo stated during a State Department briefing, “We will refuse to provide assistance to foreign NGOs that give financial support to other foreign groups in the global abortion industry,” Pompeo told reporters at the State Department. “We will enforce a strict prohibition on backdoor funding schemes and end runs around our policy. American taxpayer dollars will not be used to underwrite abortions.”
However, the multi-billion dollar abortion industry went apoplectic.
As reported by the Associated Press;
“This is unethical, dangerous, and unacceptable,” said Dr. Leana Wen, the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “Two years into the sweeping expansion of the global gag rule, there are countless examples around the world of patients losing access to health care, especially in places where maternal deaths, HIV rates, and unmet need for contraception are unacceptably high.”
Sen. Jean Shaheen, D-N.H., who has pushed for legislation to permanently repeal the Mexico City policy, called the move “unconscionable.”
“This administration’s obsession with attacking women’s reproductive health is egregious and dangerous,” she said. “Further expanding the global gag rule puts international organizations in an impossible position: provide women the full scope of reproductive health care services or deny critical funding that saves lives.”
Brian Dixon of the Population Connection Action Fund said Pompeo’s decision was “repulsive.”
“The global gag rule has been an unmitigated disaster for people throughout the developing world,” he said. “It is undermining progress on maternal and child health. It is leaving millions of people without access to health care.”
