Gag Me: Trump's Anti-Abortion Executive Order

Laurie Garrett

Here we go again. The bad old days of United States foreign assistance are coming back, now that President Donald Trump signed an executive order reinstating the global gag rule on overseas discussion of abortion by individuals and organizations receiving federal funding. We have been here twice before -- under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush -- and we know that this order often backfires, leading to increased abortion rates.

A bipartisan team in the Senate is prepping a bill to lay it permanently to rest.

"Limiting family sizes to slow population expansion and prevent maternal mortality is a matter of policy throughout the United Nations and most of the 194 nations today."

Conservatives want more children to grind on their war machine.

And it's a way to control women. "How dare she spit out the seed from a male." Sickening.

Women have the Natural Power of Developing and Delivering human offspring.

Patriarchal Men have long been actively attempting to Dominate and Rob Women of Control of this Natural Power.

True RESPECT for Women is the missing ingredient for Worldwide Peace and Justice.

If these kind-hearted christians could insist that men were punished for making a woman pregnant who was not willing to be, a lot of this misogynist pretence of care would disappear. The USA gives practically no aid anyway to those in need unless it brings profit to US companies.

Good insight!
