This is a truly important article about a policy that could have terrible consequences for women and families around the world.

"Comprehensive family planning helps prevent unintended pregnancies, deaths and abortions. This week’s executive order reinstating the global gag rule will make that work much harder. It bans health organizations around the world from providing counseling on all family planning options. If they refuse to abide by the ban, they could lose millions in funding from the United States. And this ban is harsher and broader than past orders by past presidents, because it covers every program that falls under global health assistance. That means it'll hurt more people."
The Facebook post marked the first time since the presidential election that Sandberg, a champion of women's issues, has spoken out on the policies of the new administration.

Unfortunately USAID has traditionally been a political football. Establish funding when Democrats are in. Withdraw funding when Republicans are in charge.
