Responding to questions from reporters about President Donald Trump’s decision to defund the International Planned Parenthood abortion business, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on Monday that President Donald Trump has “made it very clear that he’s a pro-life president.”

“It’s no secret,” Spicer said.

Spicer described the ban as one that will “end the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions overseas, along with coercive abortion and sterilization practices.”

Spicer told reporters that Trump “wants to stand up for all Americans, including the unborn,” and will send a global message by doing so.

“I think the reinstatement of this policy is not just something that echoes that value but respects taxpayer funding as well and ensures we’re standing up not just for life, for life of the unborn, but also for taxpayer funds that are being spent overseas to perform an action that is contrary to the values of this President,” Spicer said.
