Trump Administration Releases First Official Guidance On Mexico City Policy Implementation

Devex: Trump issues first guidelines on ‘global gag rule’ implementation
“The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump has issued the first official guidance for implementation of the Mexico City policy, also known as the ‘global gag rule.’ The roll-out of the standard provisions, issued Friday … effectively make the global gag rule operational for family planning awards under USAID, according to the reproductive health care group PAI. … Trump’s version [of the policy] also targeted all global health assistance. However, the standards issued on Friday so far only touch on family planning, and they are actually identical to the guidance issued in 2001 by President George W. Bush, as PAI noted…” (Lieberman, 3/3).
