trump reinstates 'global gag rule'

Postby Tycoon » 23 Jan 2017, 22:41

source!

it begins:

"In one of a number of sharp reversals from the Obama era, Donald Trump on Monday signed an executive order banning international NGOs from providing abortion services or offering information about abortions if they receive US funding.

The rule will put thousands of international healthcare workers in the difficult position of deciding whether to continue to offer family planning care that includes abortion at the expense of a critical funding stream. Many international health advocates insist that their efforts are not comprehensive without abortion services. Unsafe abortions are a major cause of maternal mortality and kill tens of thousands of women every year.

The US is the single largest donor to global health efforts, providing nearly $3bn toward health efforts through the United States Agency for International Development (USAid) alone. The state department and groups like the Peace Corps offer additional funding. A spokeswoman for International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) said the group will not abide by the gag rule and stands to lose up to $100m it currently receives from the US. None of that money is used for abortion services.

Public health advocates across the globe warned that a change in funding would have grave consequences.

“It would be devastating,” said Amu Singh Sijapati, president of the Family Planning Association of Nepal, a member of IPPF. Her association has used the funds to train healthcare workers and open clinics in remote parts of the country that offer long-acting, reversible contraceptives to disadvantaged women."



thoughts?

to me, it looks like the presidency is disastrous already. somehow, it seems that people using the US funding for reproductive healthcare worldwide are being hit where it hurts. this is not a pro-life action! the maternal mortality rates will rise as a result of unsafe abortions. the removal of family planning facilities globally will result in so much regression, particularly in undeveloped areas.
having no access to this care is catastrophic. i am lost for words.

We're pretty fucked. There's no way of putting it nicely.
There are plans to cut budgets(cut in half) to the department of Energy, which in turn would decrease research in science and computers. With China already announcing that they're planning to create a super computer by the end of 2017, I'm seeing this presidency already on the verge of setting this country up for failure.
I've lost my pieces.
