WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following the Trump Administration’s implementation of the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, the House Values Action Team (VAT) leadership, Chair Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), and Co-Chairs Reps. Jody Hice (R-Ga.), Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.), and Randy Hultgren (R-Ill.), jointly released the following statement:

“It is essential that U.S. foreign assistance is life affirming. The State Department’s implementation of the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, formerly known as the Mexico City Policy, solidifies that U.S. taxpayer dollars will not be used for abortions or the promotion of abortions overseas.”

“This expanded policy reinforces our commitment to the health of mothers and babies, born and unborn, ensuring that American partnership with foreign NGOs upholds human dignity and integrity.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
