The Global Gag Rule bans international organizations that receive USAID funding from providing abortions, counselling for abortions, or otherwise acknowledge abortion as a pregnancy option and as part of family planning and sexual and reproductive healthcare. This includes referring a woman or girl to an abortion provider if they want an abortion. IPPF believes in the right of women and girls to decide about their own health and wellbeing, including in right to decide if and when she wants to be pregnant. IPPF Member Associations will not deny life-saving healthcare services to any women, especially to the world’s poorest women who are disproportionately affected by the Global Gag Rule.
