...“Since Obama’s election, U.S. subsidies to the abortion industry at home and abroad have significantly increased,” noted Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), the co-chair of the bipartisan congressional Pro-Life Caucus. Smith added that President’s Obama’s lifting of the Mexico City Policy, which used to prohibit funds to overseas abortion advocates, has alone added a cool $648 million to the coffers of such groups, including the IPPF.
...“With the national debt over $13 trillion - costing every American $118,000 - we must apply strict scrutiny to every federal dollar allocated," Rep. Pete Olson (R-Tex.) said at Wednesday’s conference, noting that most Americans are opposed to funding abortion interest groups.
"That this tax money is spent by organizations that offend the majority of Americans only further justifies the need for this alarming report."
