Donald Trump Expands Global Gag Rule, Threatening Funding of Hundreds of Health Clinics

Washington, May 18 (RHC)-- In the United States, the Donald Trump administration said it would vastly expand the so-called global gag rule, a Reagan-era policy that bans U.S. funding for any international healthcare organization that performs abortion or advocates for the legalization of abortion or even mentions abortion, even if those activities are funded by non-U.S. money. 

The expansion of the global gag rule is expected to affect hundreds of health clinics worldwide, particularly in Africa.
