GAINESVILLE, Ga. — With the recent expansion of the Mexico City Policy preventing the U.S. government from supporting foreign NGO’s that fund abortion services, Pastor Jentezen Franklin issues the following statement:
“I am thrilled with Secretary of State Pompeo’s expansion of the enforcement of the Mexico City Policy, ensuring that not a single taxpayer dollar will be spent in support of foreign NGO’s that provide abortion services. This is a victory for the protection of precious lives worldwide. Americans should never be forced to fund a practice that violates their conscience. Polling data shows a noticeable shift in favor of the pro-life movement, and I have never seen so much energy amongst millions of Americans in support of the right to life as I have in recent months. Secretary Pompeo’s leadership on this initiative puts us one step closer to ensuring children are granted the protection they deserve.”
