OBAMA ENDS GLOBAL GAG RULE!

with 2 comments

It’s Official!  Here’s what Choice USA says:

It’s a beautiful day in the history of reproductive justice. There’s been a lot of speculation and now it’s actually happening: President Obama is lifting the global gag rule.

When the ban was in place, no U.S. government funding for family planning services could be given to clinics or groups that offer abortion services or counseling in other countries even if the funds for those activities come from non-U.S. government sources.

In the time I have been involved in the reproductive justice movement I have never before known what a major victory feels like. I know this is an experience shared by many in my generation of reproductive justice organizers and activists. I am so excited to be involved in this movement at a time when we can make real positive change.
