Trump announced today that he will reinstate the global gag rule, which, according to the Guttmacher Institute, disqualifies "foreign nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) from eligibility for us family planning assistance if they used non-U.S. funds to provide abortion services, counseling or referrals, or to engage in advocacy within their own countries to liberalize abortion-related policies".
Yet again, a rule is back in effect to block USA global family-planning assistance from organizations that use other money to discuss or pay for abortions in other countries. She called the act of previous administrations in not providing USA tax dollars to groups that perform and actively promote abortions a "global gag rule".

Critics of the policy refer to it as the "Global Gag Rule", and the US has been unsuccessfully sued over the policy by those who say it limits freedom of speech.

Gambian foreign minister resigns as Jammeh becomes more isolated

Donald J. Trump's reinstatement of the Global Gag Rule ignores decades of research, instead favoring ideological politics over women and families. The only exceptions are in cases of rape, incest, or a threat to the mother's life.
"We know that when family planning services and contraceptives are easily accessible, there are fewer unplanned pregnancies, maternal deaths and abortions". But NGOs that performed the procedure were allowed to receive United States funding for other programs, including those related to contraception access and post-abortion care. The Global Gag Rule was first signed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, then reversed by President Bill Clinton, then reinstated by President George W. Bush. Sub-Saharan Africa, for instance, had higher abortion rates after George W. Bush reinstated the gag rule, because it reduced women's access to contraception and caused more unwanted pregnancies, which women then chose to terminate.
When pro-abortion former President Barack Obama took office, Obama overturned a policy that prevented funding of groups that promote or perform abortions overseas.
The presidents previous to Obama who took actions on the policy signed them on January 22 of their respective years, which is the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. "Canada can't do it alone - developed nations around the world should be prepared to step up their foreign aid programs to advance women's rights and health around the world". Because of the Helms Amendment of 1973, federal money is not used for any abortion services around the globe.
Obama's decision to force Americans to pay for promoting and performing abortions overseas was not a popular one.
