Trump reinstates ban on US funds promoting abortion overseas


News under the Trump Presidency is coming so fast, I can't put posts up quick enough.

From the Hill:
President Trump on Monday morning signed an executive order blocking foreign aid or federal funding for international nongovernmental organizations that provide or "promote" abortions. 
The order comes one day after the 44th anniversary of the Roe V. Wade Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal, and days before the annual "March for Life" in Washington on Jan. 27. 
The so-called Mexico City policy, established by Republican President Ronald Reagan in 1984, blocks federal funding for international family planning charities that provide abortions or "promote" the procedure by providing patients with information about it, including by offering referrals to abortion providers. 
Referred to by critics as the "global gag rule", the policy has been subjected to a game of political football over the years, with Democratic presidents rescinding the policy once in office and Republican presidents then reinstating it. 
President Obama rescinded the policy when he took office in 2009.
