Expanded Mexico City Policy Threatens Free Speech, Women’s Health

ACLU: Trump’s Version of the ‘Global Gag Rule’ Threatens Global Health and Free Speech
Esha Bhandari, staff attorney with the ACLU Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, and Georgeanne M. Usova, legislative counsel at the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office, discuss the potential implications of the Trump administration’s expansion of the Mexico City policy, writing, “[W]ith this policy, the administration is not only trying to control the flow of information — an unworthy goal for the U.S. government and contrary to the values of the First Amendment — but also threatening the health and lives of women and families across the globe” (5/19).
