Mexico City Policy - Trump

So Trump has signed back into law the MCP which prevents US dollars going to organizations that perform abortions. Even though none of the American dollars are spent on them. So an organization which funds birth control and sexual education with US money... if they use other money to fund abortions, will be defunded.

And he signed the executive order in a sea of men.

Are people so genuinely stupid that they can't understand that birth control and sex ed prevents abortions? Or is this the price of having Pence get him the Christian Right vote?

Utter scum.

And after he stacks the Supreme Court, Roe v Wade will be under tremendous pressure.

This will be a rolling, waking nightmare.

Look at this picture. What do you notice? When will we see the reverse - women signing a bill about men's reproductive rights?

TheVermiciousKnid Tue 24-Jan-17 11:37:01

The photo of him signing that executive order surrounded by men (who all looked ever so smug) made me so angry. The implications of this are horrendous. And all this pretend-caring about the unborn - as soon as the baby is born they don't give a shit. And they don't give a shit about the woman anyway.

(On a lighter note, the photo you included, amispartacus, confused me. Then I remembered that I had downloaded an add-on on this computer which replaces pictures of Trump (and Farage) with kittens. Attempting to keep my blood pressure down...)

amispartacus Tue 24-Jan-17 11:40:44

And it was done just after the march. What does that say?

(love the app BTW)

I'm so fucking angry about this.

Increasingly I think we should all just go celibate and tell men to go fuck themselves, literally and metaphorically.

SalemsCat Tue 24-Jan-17 12:42:46

Hideous angry

Please do share ...

On Chrome there is an extension called 'Trump Kittens' (as well as 'Nigel to Kitten'), I think there are also others. I'm not sure about other browsers - Firefox probably has similar. It doesn't manage to replace all Trump pictures but most of them. Very amusing to find a picture of a cute kitten in a story about Trump/Farage. grin

I'm very worried about Roe v Wade. I'm across the border so expecting at least a few abortion refugees.

In a way MCP is worse because it affects women and children in the majority world. None of whom voted for this or can do anything to change it.

amispartacus Tue 24-Jan-17 20:58:45

None of whom voted for this or can do anything to change it

And who probably have problems accessing contraception and in ensuring that their sexual partners use it.

Still, what does Trump care about women who aren't American.

This policy is signed and enacted then rescinded every time a democratic to republican or vice versa is elected. I think this is no 5?

Yes it's shit but hes not the first.

MrsTerryPratchett Tue 24-Jan-17 21:24:02

Yes it's shit but hes not the first. I think he may have been the quickest. It's his first week FFS.

Is there a list of the defunded charities anywhere that anyone knows about? I feel a bout of charitable generosity coming on.

Whisky2014 Tue 24-Jan-17 21:27:16

Yeh first week would it be any better in a month or 5? first day he removed all word of global warming. It is scary but im not shocked. He is a cunt

amispartacus Tue 24-Jan-17 21:27:44

What mindset goes on?

Um, 1st day in office, Must rescind this straight away as it's the number 1 thing on my to do list. FFS

MrsTerryPratchett Tue 24-Jan-17 21:47:41

would it be any better in a month or 5? No, but a few women might have been better off for a while longer. sad

He is a cunt Goodness no. That's an insult to cunts. He's some kind of diseased pustule.

amispartacus Tue 24-Jan-17 22:03:55

Apparently there's no secret he's pro life. There's a march for life on Friday - Kelly Anne will be there.

amispartacus Tue 24-Jan-17 22:17:30

And this has been passed:

Looks like the Netherlands is proposing a fund to 'replace' the US funding.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38747646

Every action has a reaction. Trump is uniting people around the world.

MrsTerryPratchett Wed 25-Jan-17 23:43:56

Apparently there's no secret he's pro life. Not so much pro-life as anti-women.

Good for Lilianne Ploumen. I would give to that fund in a second.

TytoAlba Thu 26-Jan-17 05:08:33

Wow, I'm amazed by the belief killing babies is a charitable action.

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 26-Jan-17 05:21:52

At least get your facts straight. No American money goes to perform abortions overseas. None. Zero. Not for decades.

This money was going to charities that supply birth control, family planning advice and prenatal care. They also happen to receive OTHER money that may go to terminations, abortion advice or even campaigns to legalize abortion in those counties where it is illegal. In some cases it's illegal even in cases of rape, incest, mother and/or baby will die before birth, abuse.

So yes, I do consider that charitable. It also PREVENTS abortions. Because decent sex ed, advice and birth control does prevent unwanted pregnancy and therefore abortions, including illegal ones that kill the mother.

I know you're a troll. I'm posting for other people who might be lurking and confused about what this actually means.

FatCatFaces Thu 26-Jan-17 06:02:10

There are no baby killing charities Tyto as that would be illegal wouldn't it? hmm

You can sure as shit guarantee that Trump would be significantly less "pro-life" if his wandering dick got HIM pregnant. Luckily for him, he is a man so he can sign papers making decisions about those with vaginas, while remaining completely unaffected.

I live in a country where abortion is illegal and women have no rights. The only way you'd get an abortion here is if having the baby would kill you. Even then it would need to be approved by a panel of men medics. If you can't afford the baby, tough shit on you and the child. If you can't educate the baby, tough shit on you and the child. If you already have 6 other children, tough shit on you all. You can harp on about sex education, contraception and abstinence if you like. We don't have sex education here. We do have contraception but those who most need it would be denied it by their husbands and most likely unable get to the pharmacy anyway, what with not being able to drive... Abstinence is a two way street but men have needs that their chattels provide, so they win. Imagine how terrifying life must be when you have next to no free will.

Trump should be sent here. He'd fit in nicely among the higher powers. It's funny how someone so anti Muslim has the most Sharia compliant views...

Xenophile Thu 26-Jan-17 07:47:05

Tyto... US tax dollars haven't been used to provide abortions in the developing world. Nor has it been used to kill any babies. Sorry you're so ridiculously ill informed. Maybe remove your Google search for a bit so you don't make yourself look quite so foolish again?

amispartacus Thu 26-Jan-17 07:53:24

But the people affected are women and non American so why would he care about them? He's also concerned about murder and rape by illegal immigrants so I am looking forward to him addressing issues of murder, rape, DV of American women by American men. I strongly suspect he won't do anything about that but he will reduce funding for important programmed that receive federal funding.
