This week, Bill spoke in defense of the unborn and the values West Michigan holds dear. Additionally, Bill recently supported legislation in the House to prevent taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for an abortion.
Below are excerpts from the Holland Sentinel.
“By reinstating the Mexico City Policy, President Trump is continuing what President Reagan started — protecting unborn children around the world, while also protecting taxpayers here at home,” Huizenga said. “U.S. foreign aid should never finance abortions or the abortion industry, yet this is exactly what happened for the last eight years. I applaud President Trump for his action in defense of the unborn.”
This order was first instituted by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, with every Democrat president since Reagan removing it and every Republican president bringing it back.
Huizenga also focused on the issue here at home, as he voted in support of House Resolution 7 on Tuesday. HR 7 is the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017.
