Capitol Hill Watch Alert 

End the Partial Government Shutdown and Fund the Border Wall

Nations around the globe and in parts of America rely on border walls for both increased security and the prevention of illegal immigration. Furthermore, walls reduce the trafficking of illegal drugs.  Also, in the bill to end the partial government shutdown Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) quietly slipped in an attempt to repeal a provision known as the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, that was once called the Mexico City Policy and known by critics as the “global gag rule,” that stopped U.S. taxpayer funding of the abortion industry overseas. The language inserted into the measure would restore (President Trump’s Decision to Defund International Planned Parenthood Cost It $100 Million ; President Donald Trump Signs Executive Order to Defund International Planned Parenthood ) the $100 million President Donald J. Trump defunded from Planned Parenthood.  The measure would repeal a provision instituted by President Trump that requires foreign nongovernmental organizations to certify that they will not “perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.”  The bill would increase funding by $5 million for the United Nations Population Fund, to $37.5 million.  And since the program participates in coercive abortions and involuntary sterilizations pro-life organizations oppose the program (Democrats Use Bill to End Shutdown to Try to Restore Planned Parenthood Funding Trump Cut ; House Democrats slip abortion language into bill to end partial shutdown ).
