What You Need to Know About Abortion Restrictions on U.S. Global Health Assistance

If your organization receives global health assistance (monetary and non-monetary) from the U.S. government, there may be certain types of abortion-related work that you cannot perform—and these restrictions can even limit work funded from sources other than the U.S. government.

This guide—prepared by Ipas and PAI—will help you understand the rules of the U.S. government’s “Protecting Human Life in Global Health Assistance” (also known as Trump’s Global Gag Rule). It is important to understand these rules so that your abortion work allowed under Trump’s Global Gag Rule can continue.
