There are at least 214 million women around the world who want to prevent or delay pregnancy but lack access to affordable and appropriate birth control. 47,000 women die from unsafe abortions every year. Real investment in reproductive health and family planning drastically reduces maternal and child mortality, and empowers people around the world.
Yet, the new administration has already made a point of curbing access to reproductive healthcare. The Monday after he took office, Trump stripped people around the world of their access to critical reproductive health services by imposing and expanding the Global Gag Rule. This deadly policy bars foreign health organizations from receiving U.S. foreign aid if they even mention the world abortion. Because of Trump, millions of people around the world who rely on U.S.-funded family planning programs are at risk of losing access to critical reproductive healthcare programs.
Trump’s Global Gag Rule was only the first of many attacks on reproductive rights over the past three. We know that policies aimed to control people’s reproductive choices are proven to have real, deadly consequences around the globe. Despite the facts, the Trump administration is on a mission to undermine global health with policies that limit women’s access to reproductive health clinics, contraceptives, and safe abortion care.
We refuse to stand idly by as the new administration tries to strip individuals of their reproductive freedom. We’re fighting back against every policy that attempts to chip away at people’s reproductive rights, both here at home and around the globe.
That’s why we launched our #Fight4HER campaign. We’re telling Trump and his anti-choice cronies that we will not accept their efforts to undermine reproductive health and rights.
Here at Population Connection Action Fund, we believe that everyone should have access to comprehensive reproductive health care. We believe in reproductive justice, and that reproductive rights are human rights.
Politicians determined to control people’s bodies and reproductive choices must be stopped. It is time to fight back, as hard as we can and with all that we have. We have the power to push back loudly and unapologetically against every attack on reproductive rights. But first, we need your help.
Join us in the #Fight4HER as we push back against attacks on reproductive rights and freedom for people here at home and around the globe. #Fight4HER is now mobilizing action against Trump’s Global Gag Rule and in support of the newly renamed bill to block it, the Global Health, Empowerment, and Rights (HER) Act.
