Seeds: Yesterday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that prohibits federal funding for international organizations that provide abortions or support for family planning overseas.
Core: In response, Netherlands set up a global fund in which other governments and businesses can donate to financially support women’s reproductive rights and the groups that will be affected by this ban.
Skin: Many are upset by this ban, as many believe banning abortions will not stop them from happening and cutting support will only result in the performance of unsafe procedures. However, many people who are pro-life see this ban as a step in the right direction.
Leaves: This ban is just one of the many of Trump’s recent executive orders. Trump has also spoken about cutting domestic abortion funding too. We can only wait and see what else the newly elected President has planned.
Food For Thought: What do you think of the ban and the international community’s response? Are you pro-life or pro-choice? What else can you predict about Trump’s first 100 days?
