Adios, global gag rule

This news is so thrilling that I had to post it, even though it’s not nearly official yet….

Feministing cites from the Washington Post:

“…The new president is also expected to lift a so-called global gag rule barring international family planning groups that receive U.S. aid from counseling women about the availability of abortion, even in countries where the procedure is legal, said Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.”

Yes!!!!  Now if only he could take it a step further and do away with the Anti-Prostitution Pledge as well.
