Fighting the Global Gag Rule

One of the many things President Trump has done is re-impose the “global gag rule”, which prevents any clinic or health facility that receives American aid money from discussing abortion and in some cases other forms of family planning. This can be devastating for countries around the world. In response, a Dutch minister created “She Decides“, an initiative now joined by 50 countries to raise money to provide the money America now will not provide. Somewhat unexpected area for other countries to step up as the US vacates a leadership spot, and perhaps quite encouraging as a trend.
