Mexico City Policy Impacting Access To Reproductive Health Services In Nepal, Report Says

The Guardian: Nepal’s family planning clinics feel the force of Trump’s global gag rule
“…[At least] 150 Family Planning Association Nepal (FPAN) staff [have lost] their jobs over the past year because of Donald Trump’s reinstatement of the Mexico City policy — or the ‘global gag rule.’ Two and a half years after it was reintroduced, the rule is starting to have a profound effect across Nepal. … A report published by the Centre for Research on Environment Health and Population Activities and the International Women’s Health Coalition said the rule threatened Nepal’s progress in improving its reproductive health services, and would damage any future programs across the country…” (Adhikari, 9/28).
