It’s been just over a year since Trump’s Inauguration and the first Women’s March. So much has happened in the world of family planning and reproductive health since then. Donald Trump imposed his expanded Global Gag Rule, cutting off aid to health providers around the world. He eliminated funding for UNFPA, denying the agency United States support for critical maternal health and family planning programs in more than 150 countries. With the support of Congress, he’s moved to defund Planned Parenthood at every turn, and he has led the charge to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, which would leave millions of Americans without access to lifesaving healthcare. Despite all evidence proving him wrong, he’s an active climate change denier. And the list goes on and on.
In the face of these constant challenges, the progressive resistance movement, and reproductive rights activists like you, have maintained the fight. We’ve marched, rallied, protested, called, emailed, petitioned, and been relentless in our efforts to stand tall against attacks on our reproductive health, our civil liberties, and the environment.
One year in, we’re honored to stand side by side with you to speak up for international family planning, reproductive rights, and our planet, and to make our elected officials listen to what matters to us, their constituents. Thanks for all you did last year. We look forward to resisting with you this one!
