Planned Parenthood Global is the international arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. For 40 years, we have been working overseas to ensure that women, men, and young people in some of the world’s most neglected areas have access to the health care they need to control their bodies and their futures. By partnering with local advocates, medical service providers, and youth leaders and helping to build sustainable networks and organizations, we find innovative ways to help ensure the delivery of critical services and fight for more inclusive laws and policies.

This policy keeps women in many countries from accessing safe abortion that they should legally be able to get via existing U.S. aid programs. No woman should be turned away from the care she needs — especially in cases of rape, incest, and a pregnancy that threatens her life.
Opponents of birth control don’t just want to limit access in the U.S., they want to slash U.S. support for international family planning.
The global gag rule prevents any organization receiving U.S. international family planning funds from providing counseling or referrals for abortion or advocating for access.
Until recently, Peace Corps volunteers had been denied coverage for abortion even in cases of rape and incest, or when their lives are in danger under an outdated and unjust policy.
The United Nations Population Fund endeavors to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. U.S. support for UNFPA is vital to achieving this mission.
