On March 2 the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden hosted a summit to strengthen the “She Decides” funding initiative. This initiative is designed to help those hurt by President Trump’s “Global Gag Rule.”

The rule strips foreign, governmental organizations from receiving any U.S. health funding if they use funds from any source to provide information about abortions, perform abortions or advocate liberalizing U.S. abortion laws.

The new initiative by the Human Rights Watch would help provide funding to those countries affected by the gage rule.
