Trump Expands Global Gag Rule

“Specifically, today’s announcement widens the number of foreign programs affected by the policy, from programs totaling $575 million in funding to $8.8 billion. Now, any foreign NGO that works on international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health and malaria, cannot perform abortions, refer or counsel women to receive abortions or lobby for or conduct public information campaigns in support of abortion. Exemptions exist for abortions in the event of incest, rape, or danger to the mother’s life.”
