HT to Dragon_Lady for sending this to me
The Dutch government is setting up an international safe abortion fund just days after President Donald Trump signed an executive order to cut U.S. foreign aid.
On Monday, Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy — known as the global gag rule — which prevents non-governmental organizations working abroad from receiving federal funding for family planning if they perform abortions or even talk to their clients about abortion.
Up to 20 countries and several foundations have already said they would support the Netherlands in setting up an international abortion fund to plug a $600 million funding gap caused by the reinstatement of the global gag rule, according to Lilianne Ploumen, Dutch minister of foreign trade and development cooperation.
