Trump’s Order to Defund Internationa; Planned Parenthood May Close Abortion Clinics

Joseph and Daisy Pardo are hopeful U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s reinstitution of the Mexico City Policy will speed the closure of an International Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Puerto Rico.

But in the meantime, they’re celebrating the closure of two privately owned abortion businesses in early 2017, as well as an upcoming birth for a young woman with a remarkable story.

The Pardos direct the first stand-along pregnancy help center in Puerto Rico, having relocated their family of six from Tampa, Fla., in the fall of 2015. Until recently, their center, Cree Women’s Care, had been situated within just a couple hundred feet of two abortion clinics on a one-way street.

Now, just one remains. In early January, abortion practitioner Santiago Diaz abruptly shuttered both his clinic next door to Cree and his second location, which had operated directly in front of the main hospital in San Juan—and right next door to its abortion industry competitor, “Clinica Iella,” a local affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).

Just three days after his inauguration, Jan. 23, President Trump reinstated a policy that keeps $100 million out of the hands of IPPF as part of the broader protection of $607.5 million in overseas funding that now cannot go toward international organizations that promote or perform abortions. . . .
