Equal Access For All

The forthcoming Obama administration has been compiling a list of Bush policies that can be overturned quickly and easily to help eradicate the Bush legacy and make good on some of Obama’s campaign promises as speedily as possible once he enters office.

The good news: among these policies that Obama intends to reverse is the Global Gag Rule, a Bush ruling that prevents any foreign NGOs receiving US funding to council women on reproductive/family planning options, especially abortion.

The repealing of the Global Gag Rule will truly be a great day for the safety and health of women world wide, as well as a representation of the US no longer trying to police where it has no business to be policing.
