SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Dr. Ronnie Floyd releases the following statement commending President Trump’s decision to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, preventing U.S. foreign aid from funding or promoting abortion:
“I want to thank President Trump for keeping his word and for fighting for the life of the unborn in his very first week in office. By reinstating the Mexico City Policy he has echoed the desire of millions of Americans to no longer see U.S. foreign aid used to promote or fund abortions abroad
“As a pastor committed to the sanctity of life, this news comes as great encouragement. For decades the evangelical community has stood for the value of all life, in all its stages and forms. Life is the most precious gift our Creator has given us, and it should be cherished and it should be protected by law.
“Just one day after America observed the National Sanctity of Human Life Day we have a reason for celebration, and we’re sending a message to the world that in the United States we value life.”
