Center For Reproductive Rights, Ipas Leaders Discuss Trump Administration’s Expanded Mexico City Policy

Elite Daily: The Global Gag Rule Is Harming Women Around The World — EXCLUSIVE
Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, and Anu Kumar, the interim CEO of Ipas, discuss the anniversary of the Trump Administration’s reinstated and expanded Mexico City Policy, noting, “The Global Gag Rule undermines fundamental human rights to life, health, equality, information, privacy, and expression. It silences advocates, stifles partnerships, and undermines local governments’ ability to improve health outcomes for women and girls. Restricting abortion access does not stop people from seeking abortion care, it only makes the procedure less safe, ultimately contributing to maternal mortality. Under this policy, the U.S. has turned its back on the human rights of women and girls around the world…” (2/19).
