Biden revives international abortion funding
A new Marist poll of roughly 1,200 U.S. adults found that more that 77 percent oppose using tax dollars to support abortions overseas. But President Joe Biden rescinded the Mexico City policy, which barred the government from giving taxpayer money to organizations that perform or promote the procedure internationally. The policy began under President Ronald Reagan. Democrats Bill Clinton and Barack Obama revoked the rule, and Republicans George W. Bush and Donald Trump reinstated it.
Any other new orders? Biden on Thursday also said he was “restoring the Affordable Care Act and restoring Medicaid to the way it was before Trump became president.” He is directing federal agencies to review existing policies that may make it tougher to receive Medicaid, including work requirements, and reopening the signup window for Obamacare.
