Message to your Senators:
I’m writing today to ask you to support the Global Health, Empowerment, and Rights (HER) Act, which would permanently repeal the harmful Global Gag Rule. This dangerous policy, known by supporters as the Mexico City Policy, makes it illegal for health clinics that receive U.S. aid to even discuss abortion — forcing them to choose between critical U.S. funding and providing comprehensive care.
The Global HER Act would ensure that foreign non-governmental organizations can continue to take U.S. aid for health programs abroad AND continue to provide counseling, referral, and legal abortion services with their own non-U.S. funds. I ask you to do everything in your power to make sure that the U.S. does not interfere in women’s healthcare decisions and instead works to improve access to health programs for women around the world!
