Trump Administration Expands Global Gag Rule

On Monday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson approved a plan called “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance,” which expands the Global Gag Rule restrictions to virtually all global health assistance provided by the federal government, including from the Department of State, USAID, and the Department of Defense—restricting $8.8 billion dollars in financial support for global health programs. The expanded Trump Global Gag Rule affects a pool of funding nearly 15 times as large as the George W. Bush-era Global Gag Rule.
