New House and Senate Bills Would Repeal Trump's Global Gag Rule

New federal legislation was introduced today in the U.S. House and Senate that would legislatively rescind Trump’s Global Gag Rule, a presidential memorandum signed by Donald Trump yesterday that prohibits U.S.-supported overseas groups involved in promoting global health from using their own money to provide nearly all safe and legal abortion services, or even abortion-related referrals and information. The Trump Global Gag Rule would affect groups involved in all aspects of global health, from HIV to family planning to Zika.
