The yo-yo effect of the Global Gag Rule has devastating consequences for the care organizations can provide women & families in our most vulnerable parts of the world. It’s time to take it off the table so health care is guided by doctors & experts, not partisan politics.

We are thrilled that this year's FY22 @SenateApprops bills advance sexual health & rights by:
1️⃣ Permanently repealing the #GlobalGagRule
2️⃣ Increasing funding in international family planning, including @UNFPA
3️⃣ Investing in #LGBTQI+ rights at @StateDRL &
@USAIDInclusive 🌈

This spending bill will impact lives around the world. We urge Congressional leaders to stand on the right side of history & repeal the #GlobalGagRule once & for all, advancing the sexual health & rights of people worldwide.
