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.

U.S. House Passes Bill to Deny Millions of Women Reproductive Health Care Coverage

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure today that would deny insurance coverage of abortion care for nearly all women, including the millions who rely on federal insurance plans and state marketplaces. The measure—which passed by a vote of 238-183—was the key bill being voted on by the House this week.
