Typical of the Bush regime that from the beginning of his first term, he was strong-arming international charity agencies into accepting assistance ONLY if the agencies did not advise about or perform abortions. There's a word for this sort of disgusting behavior but it's too damn early in the morning for me to remember it.
This just in from NARAL Pro-Choice America (join them here):
You can stop President Bush's appalling "global gag rule," which blocks U.S. funds from going to any overseas health clinic if it uses its own, private, non-U.S. funds to provide legal abortion services, give referrals, or even take a public pro-choice position.
Take action now and urge your senators to vote to repeal the global gag rule. After you take action, be sure to forward this message to at least five friends. Let's make sure that senators in all 50 states hear from pro-choice supporters!
