Mexico City policy
 n.— «The White House told committee members that Bush “does not support Senate passage” of the bill “in its current form because it includes provisions that would overturn the Administration’s family planning policy (commonly known as the “Mexico City” policy).”…On his first day in office during his first term, President George W. Bush signed an executive order reinstating the Mexico City Policy, a measure that Presidents Reagan and Bush used previously to block taxpayer funding of international groups that perform or promote abortions.» —“President Bush Threatens Veto of Foreign Aid Bill Over Abortion” by Steven Ertelt July 21, 2005.
