WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today the Trump administration's State Department began the implementation of the Mexico City Policy, a policy dating back to every Republican administration since Ronald Reagan's. The policy ensures American taxpayer dollars are prevented from going to any foreign group that performs abortions or "actively promotes" abortion as a method of family planning in other countries.

The order ensures U.S. funds will continue to go to health care, humanitarian relief, and even family planning; it only blocks funding to those groups that perform or promote abortion....

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act of 2017 (AHCA).

The repeal of the Johnson amendment was a frequent campaign theme of then-candidate Donald Trump's successful presidential campaign....
