Clinton unrestricted spending on "population assistance"

House Roll Call No. 22
105th Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 220-209 (see complete tally)
The U.S. annually spends a half-billion dollars and more on so-called "population assistance" (population control) programs overseas. The Clinton Administration used this program to aggressively promote its doctrine holding that legal abortion on demand is a "fundamental right" and to expand access to abortion. On February 13, 1997, the House voted on H.J. Res. 36, a resolution to allow the Clinton Administration to spend an additional $123 million in foreign aid "population assistance" during Fiscal Year 1997, without pro-life language to curb the use of the program to promote legalization of abortion. NRLC opposed this resolution, but it passed, 220-209, roll call no. 22.
