Last year, the Trump administration reinstated and expanded the dangerous Global Gag Rule. This draconian restriction forces non-U.S. health centers to choose between keeping their essential U.S. funding to function and withholding information about abortion care OR being denied this funding because they won’t hide information from patients.
This policy is cutting off entire communities from healthcare and women and girls are dying because of it.
The Global HER (Health, Empowerment, and Rights) Act is an opportunity for us to rescind this awful rule and save lives. By passing this bill in Congress, presidents would no longer be able to use executive orders to restrict funding for healthcare of millions of women, and restore U.S. funding to some of the most vulnerable populations in the world.
Send a message to your senators and representatives NOW to urge them to support the Global HER Act in order to prioritize reproductive freedom, return basic healthcare to vulnerable populations all over the world and stop undermining long-term U.S. investments in global health.
