The Mexico City Policy, known as the Global Gag Rule (GGR), denies U.S. funding to organisations like IPPF if they use money from other donors to provide abortion services, counselling or referrals—even if abortion is legal in a country.
The rule blocks critical funding for health services like contraception, maternal health, and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment for any organisation that refuses to sign up to it.
IPPF will lose $100m in USAID funding. With the GGR reinstated, millions of men and women in the poorest communities who are accessing sexual and reproductive health services will go without.
IPPF is the world's largest NGO providing critical sexual and reproductive health services to the world's most marginalized women and young people.
