In January 2017, the original (now former) policy on not taking political stands was in force. The AOM was constrained from condemning the U.S. President's Executive Order by the AOM policy against taking a political stand on any matter. Because the U.S. President's Executive Order was political, the AOM could not condemn it for any reason, i.e., on moral, academic, pragmatic, or other grounds.
