Biden administration starts dismantling Trump’s abortion policies after claiming he is a ‘devout Catholic’


CHRISTIAN TODAY —

The Biden administration dodged questions about the president’s policy priorities regarding abortion funding on his first day in office, but on Thursday Dr. Anthony Fauci confirmed that the president will be rescinding his predecessor’s pro-life policies.

According to Catholic News Agency, Fauci told board members of the World Health Organization that the administration will repeal the Mexico City Policy in the “coming days.”

“It will be our policy to support women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights in the United States, as well as globally,” Fauci said.

“To that end, President Biden will be revoking the Mexico City Policy in the coming days, as part of his broader commitment to protect women’s health and advance gender equality at home and around the world,” he added.

Fielding questions from reporters Wednesday during her first press conference as Biden’s White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki was asked about the Hyde Amendment, the Mexico City Policy and how the new president intends to proceed.

“I think we’ll have more to say on the Mexico City Policy in the coming days. But I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly,” Psaki replied to a reporter with the Catholic network EWTN.

“He started his day attending church with his family this morning, but I don’t have anything more for you on that,” she added.
