Throughout this report, CHANGE seeks to document the breadth of the GGR ’s impacts on civil society and health systems. For example, CHANGE provides evidence that the GGR (Global Gag Rule) under President George W. Bush had consequences outside family planning programs, and that it adversely impacted a wider range of health services provided by foreign NGOs. Some of these impacts were mitigated when President Barack Obama rescinded the policy, but the harmful effects have been shown to linger, particularly as each iteration has become more oppressive, culminating now with the Trump GGR.
