President Donald Trump on Monday reinstated a global gag rule that bans U.S.-funded groups around the world from discussing abortion, a move that was widely expected but nonetheless dismayed women's rights advocates. The rule, which affects American non-governmental organizations working abroad, is one that incoming presidents have used to signal their positions on abortion rights. It was created under U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Trump, an abortion opponent, signed the reinstatement directive at a ceremony in the White House on his fourth day in office. Former President Barack Obama had lifted the gag rule in 2009 when he took office. "Women's health and rights are now one of the first casualties of the Trump administration," said Serra Sippel, president of the Center for Health and Gender Equity in Washington. "The global gag rule has been associated with an increase in unsafe abortions and we expect that Trump's global gag rule will cost women their lives," she said. Reinstatement of the gag rule, formally the Mexico City policy, comes just two days after crowds of people marched in cities around the world in a show of unity for women's rights, among them abortion ไทยรัฐ access. While no official estimates were available, organizers said nearly five million people participated. The far-reaching gag rule affects groups getting funding from the U.S.
His daughter-in-law was traveling back from the Washington march. I deserved it, he said of the response to his story. Bondy who, like many journalists, including a number of New York Times staffers, lives in Montclair said he should have known better. He did a lot of parenting work when he was raising his children along with his wife both of them working full-time, he said. It was a piece about the women go off to war and what happens back home, he said. You know, more conventionally the men go off to war and the women stay home. It was pointed out to Bondy that these days women go to war, too. The piece was meant to be lighthearted, he said. But these are not light times. Bondy said he chose Montclair as the setting for his piece because its residents voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton. That made the articles misfire seem all the more poignant. We all voted for Hillary, but dont get it twisted. The division of labor in our homes is straight-up 19th century, tweeted Heather Havrilesky of New York magazine.
