Andrea Mitchell Agrees Pro-Life Policy Will Send ‘Many Women’ to ‘Early Death’


On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell teed up former Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman to denounce President Trump for reinstating the Mexico City policy banning U.S. foreign aide from funding abortions. In addition, Mitchell agreed with a stunning accusation hurled by the Obama administration official.

Mitchell fretted that the pro-life policy was being “expanded…beyond what George W. Bush and previous Republican administrations have done, and to basically say that these international agencies cannot use their own funding for such work.” Sherman replied: “Indeed….this reinstatement of the global gag rule, which was created in Mexico City in 1984, says that you cannot provide counseling, you cannot provide information, you cannot send someone to another provider, and you have to literally sign a pledge that you won’t or you get no U.S. funding.”
