Trump expands anti-abortion
ban to all US global health aid
US President Donald Trump
has massively expanded the ban
on providing US federal money
to international family planning
groups that perform abortions or
provide abortion information to all
organisations receiving US global
Trump's spokesman Sean Spicer an-
nounced Monday that the ban on family
planning funding---which was institut-
ed by GOP President Ronald Reagan in
1984 and has bounced in and out of law
between Democratic and Republican
administrations---had been reinstitut-
ed. But it wasn't until the president's
memorandum was published Monday
night that the expansion came to light.
The order directs the secretary of
state, in co-operation with the sec-
retary of health and human services,
for the first time to extend the require-
ments in the ban "to global health as-
sistance furnished by all departments
or agencies." The ban is known as the
Mexico City Policy or Global Gag Rule.
Suzanne Ehlers, president of Wash-
ington-based Population Action Inter-
national which lobbies in the US and
developing countries for women's re-
productive health, told The Associated
Press on Tuesday that targeting health
assistance expands the amount of US
funding affected by a magnitude of
15 times and will impact millions and
millions of women in low- and mid-
US support for family planning cur-
rently amounts to about US$575 million
in 40 countries, she said, while global
health assistance totals about US$9
billion to about 60 countries.
Any international organisation re-
ceiving US funds for health programmes
will now be required to certify that it
does not provide abortion services,
counseling, referrals or information or
advocate for the liberalisation of abor-
tion laws, even with non-US funds. If
they don't, their funding will be cut off.
The effects of this "massive expan-
sion ... are so enormous that the Amer-
ican public should be outraged that we
really are trying to cut off life-saving
basic health services to the poorest
women anywhere in the world," Ehlers
said. "It's like a complete abomination
of US leadership and partnership."
She said members of the House and
Senate need to know that Trump "has
gone too far."
US Senator Jeanne Shaheen told
fellow lawmakers Tuesday that the
expansion "targets some of the most
effective health organisations at work
in the developing world."
"Without funding, these organi-
sations won't be able to provide HIV
services and maternal health care, or
counsel women on the risks of Zika
infection," the New Hampshire Dem-
Ehlers said programmes funded by
the US Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, to support child nutrition,
and help combat infectious diseases
like tuberculosis and malaria, are also
affected. Shaheen and Sen Susan Col-
lins, a Maine Republican, introduced
legislation late Tuesday to repeal the
Global Gag Rule, with support from 43
other senators. A companion bill was
introduced in the House by Rep. Nita
Lowey, a New York Democrat.
"Women's reproductive health
care remains under constant assault,"
Shaheen said, and Trump's action has
broadened the assault.
"We know that the way to decrease
unplanned pregnancies and abortions is
to make birth control and family plan-
ning services accessible and affordable,
not micromanage the type of medical
information and reproductive health
counseling that women around the
world receive," she said. (AP)
Dutch govt to set
The Netherlands is seeking to
set up an overseas abortion fund
to counteract President Donald
Trump's recent ban against fund-
ing international groups which give
women information about termi-
Minister for Foreign Trade and De-
velopment Co-operation Lilianne
Ploumen for the Dutch government
has announced she intends to estab-
lish an international fund which would
finance projects relating to access for
birth control, abortion and women's
education, throughout developing
Ploumen announced the plan in re-
action to an extensive memorandum
signed by Trump to restrict access to
information on abortion for women
who are in receipt of aid from inter-
national development groups. Known
as the Mexico City Policy or the "global
gag" rule, the ban was one of Trump's
first actions upon entering office last
She told colleagues: "This has
far-reaching consequences. First of all,
for all those women who have to make,
if they want to have a child, a choice,
but also for their husbands and children
and society as a whole. Banning abor-
tion does not lead to fewer abortions. It
leads to more irresponsible practices in
back rooms and more maternal deaths."

assistance from performing or promoting abortions abroad with money they receive from non-US sources, on
