Effects of the Global Gag Rule: Examples from Around the World

During the years that the global gag rule was in effect, it resulted in dramatic drops in funding to organizations worldwide that provide necessary family-planning services and other health-care services and an increase in abortion.  Indeed, a 2011 Stanford University study found that abortion rates more than doubled in African countries that were most reliant on U.S. family-planning aid during the years that policy was in place.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
