Since 1984, healthcare organizations in developing countries have faced major cuts in US foreign aid if they perform or promote abortions as a method of family planning. The policy-commonly known as the global gag rule - is a hallmark of Republican administrations. The reinstatement & expansion of the global gag rule by Donald Trump in January 2017 caused a firestorm of debate. Proponents emphasize the importance of reducing abortions globally, while critics predict large increases in unsafe abortions & maternal mortality resulting from disruptions to family-planning services. How plausible are the various claims & projections? This question is surprisingly difficult to answer because there is little statistical evidence on the global gag rule.
