In one of his first acts as President, Donald Trump has signed an executive order to cut funding to organisations that provide women with advice on abortions.
The global gag rule, which limits US foreign aid going to organisations that provide support for women getting abortions, was first introduced by Ronald Reagan in 1984. It has been revoked or reinstated every time the White House has gone to a different party.
The fact Trump signed this order which will impact the health of millions of women around the world, while flanked by men wasn’t overlooked.
