Urge lawmakers: Permanently repeal the Global Gag Rule!

The Global Gag Rule is a dangerous and harmful U.S. foreign policy that blocks global funding for non-profits and clinics around the world that use their own money to provide abortion services or even information about abortion services to patients. President Biden ended it temporarily, but we need to make sure that another president can’t bring it back with the stroke of a pen.
Here’s how: the Global HER Act would permanently repeal the Global Gag Rule. It has majority support in Congress — but Congressional leaders STILL aren’t treating it with the priority it demands. That’s why human rights advocates are urging House and Senate leaders to pass the Global HER Act to protect the human rights of people across the world.
THIS is our opportunity to end the Global Gag Rule once and for all — but time is running out. While Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer have expressed support for the Global HER Act, we need more than that — we need them to make it a priority.
That’s why we need your help. Urge Congressional leaders to permanently end the Global Gag Rule by passing the Global HER Act.
