President Bush's pro-life "Mexico City Policy"
Hyde Amendment to protect Mexico City Policy
05/16/2001
House Roll Call No. 115
107th Congress, 1st Session

Agreed to: 218-210 (see complete tally)
In January, 2001, President George W. Bush used his executive authority to restore the pro-life "Mexico City Policy" that had originally been in effect under Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush. The policy removes eligibility for U.S. aid for overseas "population assistance" projects to any private organization that promotes abortion or the legalization of abortion in foreign nations. The House International Relations Committee added language to the State Department authorization bill (H.R. 1646) to overturn the President's pro-life policy, but on this vote, the full House adopted an amendment offered by Congressman Henry Hyde (R-Il.) to strike the pro-abortion provision and thereby preserve the pro-life policy, 218-210, Roll Call No. 115, May 16, 2001.
