U.S. Congress Should Permanently Repeal Mexico City Policy

Seacoast Online: Letter to the editor: It’s time to permanently repeal the Global Gag Rule
Mindi Messmer, Democratic candidate for New Hampshire’s First Congressional District

“…Autonomy for reproductive planning and health care are essential to women’s economic empowerment and gender equality. The effectiveness of public health policies like the [Mexico City policy, also known as the global gag rule,] should be evaluated through science and evidence-based approaches that are non-ideological and non-partisan. I am hopeful that the [Global HER Act, which would permanently repeal the global gag rule,] will be evaluated in terms of public health protection and passed to protect health care equity for women worldwide” (5/3).
