Global Gag Rule

President Trump’s expanded Global Gag Rule targets women’s reproductive rights by blocking global health assistance to foreign organizations who use their own, non-U.S. funds to provide information, referrals, or services for legal abortion or to advocate for access to abortion services in their own countries.

Trump’s expansion impacts about 15 times more U.S. funding and also extends the reach of restrictions beyond NGO grants and cooperative agreements to contracts. This will also broaden the reach of the policy’s already deadly effects, including increasing unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions, and maternal and child mortality. Previously known within the U.S. government as the Mexico City Policy, Trump’s expanded Global Gag Rule has been deceptively re-branded “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance.”
