United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the United States would engage in a massive funding over the next five years to promote “reproductive health care and family planning” as a “basic right” around the world. Clinton said that this includes abortion.

Commemorating the fifteenth anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Clinton said that there were only five years left to achieve the proposed goals that “all governments will make access to reproductive healthcare and family planning services, a basic right.”

However, in 1984, Mexico City requested that all non-governmental organizations receiving federal funding refrain from promoting abortion as a method of family planning.
