Urge Congress To Repeal The Draconian “Global Gag Rule”

One of President Trump’s first acts in office was to put the health and lives of millions of women, girls, LGBTQI people and other vulnerable communities at risk. He enacted the dangerous “global gag rule,” which forbids the U.S. from providing global health assistance to foreign organizations that provide abortion, counsel patients about abortion or advocate for reproductive rights. The “gag rule” prohibits the use of any American aid by these organizations, even if they are using it to pay for life-saving services that have nothing to do with abortion—like pap smears, maternity care or anti-HIV drugs!

But courageous members of Congress are fighting the global gag rule… and they need our help. Thanks to a new bill introduced earlier this year, the Global HER Act, this draconian global gag rule could be repealed—once and for all.

Please urge your members of Congress to stand up for women, girls, LGBTQI people and other vulnerable groups by supporting the Global HER Act. With devastating threats to sexual and reproductive rights in the U.S. and around the world, your voice is more important now than ever.
