U.S. Tries to Force Abortion on Dominican Republic

The new imperialism: the United States places sanctions on the legislators of the Dominican Republic, interfering with domestic politics in trying to force the legalisation of abortion.

“’Progressives’ say the U.S. shouldn’t force its values on developing nations,” said Ruth Institute President Dr Jennifer Roback Morse, PhD, “but now the Biden Administration is trying to force other nations to change their abortion laws and to accommodate homosexuality.”

Catholic Bishop Victor Masalles of the Dominican Republic says legislators have been told they’ll face diplomatic sanctions, including loss of visas, if they don’t change their nation’s pro-life laws. The Dominican Republic is nearly 70% Christian, of whom two-thirds are Roman Catholic.

“The Biden Administration’s policy flies in the face of U.S. law,” Morse said.

“The Siljander Amendment to the State Department Appropriations Act, passed in 1981 and renewed every year since, prohibits the Department from funding groups that lobby either for or against foreign abortion laws.”

“But the State Department is lobbying Dominican lawmakers to make abortion more available, and threatening sanctions for non-compliance, as well as aggressively promoting the gay agenda.”

In a February 4, 2021, letter, the Biden White House ordered retribution against foreign governments that fail to “protect LGBTQI+ persons” from what it calls discrimination.

“The Gay Lobby has an expansive definition of ‘discrimination,’” Morse said. “They consider refusal to allow gay adoption and legalise same-sex ‘marriage’ to be discriminatory. They also think ‘non-discrimination’ includes forcing real women to share showers, restrooms, prisons, and domestic violence shelters with men who say they’re women.”

“This is the Sexual State at work. The Biden Administration is the enforcement arm of the Sexual Revolution. Whatever Planned Parenthood and the Gay Lobby want, the White House wants. Substantial majorities of the American people object. I bet the people of the Dominican Republic object too.”

“Where are the calls for non-interference and ‘neutrality’ when Washington tries to force foreign governments to promote abortion and further the gay agenda?” Morse asked.

“Congress must move to stop the State Department from acting as an adjunct of the International Planned Parenthood Federation and the presumptuously mistitled ‘Human Rights Campaign.’ This hypocrisy needs to end.”

    Maybe the DRep needs it’s own No Fly Zone… like the corrupt USA stays out of their lives. Now where’s the Right to Choose? Sick and evil, these agendas are spreading like a virus…strange.
