Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after President Joe Biden rescinded the Mexico City Policy.
“It is unconscionable that one of the first actions taken by the Biden Administration is to send U.S. taxpayer dollars overseas to organizations that perform and promote the killing of the unborn,” Rubio said. “By rescinding the Mexico City Policy, the Biden Administration is sending a signal to the world that protecting life at its most vulnerable stage is no longer a part of America’s core values. I will always stand on the side of life, and will continue my work in the Senate to protect the unborn." 
President Reagan established the Mexico City Policy in 1984 to prevent federal funds from going to any nongovernmental organization that performs or promotes abortion as a method of family planning. Historically, the Mexico City Policy has been implemented by Republican presidents and rescinded by Democratic presidents.
