Stefano Gennarini on the Mexico City Policy

Here is a link to a good essay by Stefano Gennarini from C-Fam. The essay is entitled “The Genius of the Mexico City Policy and the Pro-Life Legacy of President Trump.” Here is the conclusion:

“Ronald Reagan was a visionary pro-life president. He saw the need to stop the global abortion industry and played his part in trying to silence and thwart it. But that was over thirty years ago. President Trump has an opportunity to forge his own legacy as a pro-life president. To do that, he must continue to update, reinforce, and apply the principles underlying the Mexico City Policy in a way that is consistent with Reagan’s original vision.”
