Dear Friend,

The Trump administration’s new strategy on Women, Peace, and Security is one more glaring example of their dangerous, regressive, and illegal approach to women’s health and rights. The United States is eroding women’s equality at home and abroad by exporting censorship, enacting restrictive abortion policies, and undermining protections for survivors of sexual violence in conflict.

We will not let the Trump administration turn back the clock. Women and girls deserve to live with dignity, in full control of their bodies, and with equal protection under the law.

There’s Nothing “Pro-Life” About Sweeping Abortion Bans

The deadly impact of restrictive abortion policies is so well documented that the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial executions has declared that total abortion bans amount to gender-based arbitrary killing.  Read GJC Communications Manager Liz Olson in Ms. Magazine.
