Plaintiffs-appellants Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. ("Planned Parenthood"), Planned Parenthood Center of El Paso, Stewart R. Mott, Stephen L. Isaacs, Sosamma Lindsay and Jane Doe appeal from a judgment entered in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Walker, C.J., sitting by designation) dismissing the complaint in this action for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. See Planned Parenthood Fed'n of Am., Inc. v. Agency for Int'l Dev., No. 87 Civ. 0248 (JMW) (S.D.N.Y. Mar. 7, 1990) (1990 WL 26306; 1990 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 2430). Plaintiffs-appellants contend that the implementation of an executive branch policy by the Agency for International Development ("AID") restricting federal assistance to foreign nongovernmental family planning organizations violates their constitutional rights to speech, association and privacy. The district court, considering the claims on remand from our decision in Planned Parenthood Fed'n of Am., Inc. v. 61*61 Agency for Int'l Dev., 838 F.2d 649 (2d Cir.1988) (Planned Parenthood I), upheld AID's conditions on funding for foreign nongovernmental organizations as the least restrictive means of implementing a non-justiciable foreign policy decision. For the reasons that follow, we affirm.
