Oppose Global Gag Rule

July 3, 2015 — The UUWF joined many of our partners in the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), including the General Board of Church & Society of the United Methodist Church, in signing an open statement opposing the so-called global gag rule. In the face of growing efforts in Congress to reinstate this punitive international policy, Planned Parenthood of America is the lead organization in our collective response to renewed attempts to reinstate the regulation which President Obama lifted in 2009. The gag rule had denied foreign organizations receiving U.S. family planning assistance the right to use their own funds to provide information, referrals or services for legal abortion or to advocate for legal abortions in their countries.
