Joe Biden, a Democrat, is poised to become President of the United States, and with that transition will come a likely reversal of the Global Gag Rule (GGR). The current iteration of the GGR is a Republican-led mandate requiring Non-Governmental Organizations to NOT discuss, promote, or offer abortion as an option in health care programs in order to receive $8.8 billion in funds from the US government.
The catalyst for its implementation centers around the anti-abortion stance of the “Right To Life” movement.
The Global Gag Rule does not decrease the number of abortions. Full stop.
