Members of Congress are planning an attack on women's health in developing countries. Politicians with an ideological view of family planning are now trying to cut funding for contraception, reinstate the Global Gag Rule and ban funding for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
President Obama overturned the harmful Global Gag Rule, which severely limits access to family planning services in developing countries. President Obama and our Congressional champions also worked hard to increase support for U.S. international family planning and the UNFPA. This funding accounts for a fraction of 1 percent of our budget and saves hundreds of thousands of lives.
The vast majority of Americans, from both sides of the aisle, support family planning. Tell President Obama and the Senate to continue to stand up against the Global Gag Rule and for international family planning programs!
