Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement on President Biden signing an executive order allowing for American foreign aid to be used to pay for and support abortions in other countries:
“I do not support using American taxpayer dollars to fund or facilitate abortion. President Biden used to hold the same position, until it became untenable within the Democratic party. The president has talked about unity and healing, but he’s issuing a divisive executive order allowing American taxpayer dollars to be spent on abortions around the world, contrary to the consensus of the American people and on the eve of the March for Life.”
Marist Poll conducted this month found that “more than three in four Americans oppose using tax dollars to support abortions in other countries.”
