Tell Congress to Stop the Global Gag Rule for Good

Otherwise known as the Mexico City Policy, under the Global Gag Rule international non-profit organizations that accept American financial aid cannot offer abortion services, even if they are using their own money.

Fortunately, President Barack Obama repealed the Global Gag Rule his first month in office. However, so did President Bill Clinton: then President George W. Bush reinstated it.

To stop this back-and-forth require an act of Congress. The Global Democracy Promotion Act states that countries receiving U.S. aid should not be barred from providing whatever health and medical services it deems fit.

Tell Congress to protect the health and well-being of countless women worldwide by passing ending the Global Gag Rule for good.
