Statement from Ashley McGuire, Senior Fellow with The Catholic Association:
President Biden’s decision to restore taxpayer funding for international abortions is tragic, especially after he campaigned extensively on his Catholic faith. Americans overwhelmingly oppose their tax dollars being used to fund abortions. The latest polling shows that more than three-fourths of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, including a majority of those who call themselves pro-choice. President Biden’s latest move is meant to placate the well-funded abortion extremists in his party and violates his pledge to restore unity to America.

Statement from Grazie Pozo Christie, MD, Policy Advisor for The Catholic Association:
 “President Biden has made it clear that his Catholic faith will inform the decisions he makes as president, but today, one of his first presidential actions will be to fund abortion overseas using Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars. Instead of using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion abroad, he should prioritize an authentic concern for the world’s poor by helping them to house, feed, and educate their children rather than eliminate them.”
