PAI Analysis: Comparing Global and Domestic Gag Rules

Posted by Maria Codina on March 6, 2019 at 4:39 pm



PAI has created a chart to compare the abortion-related restrictions contained in the Trump-Pence administration’s expanded Global Gag Rule with the final Title X domestic family planning rule, published in the Federal Register on March 4, 2019. PAI offers the chart as our contribution to the public policy debate and to the political, legislative and legal battles that are sure to soon ensue in the hopes of minimizing any confusion between the Global Gag Rule and the Title X domestic family planning rule—given their many similarities but also their many significant differences.

 

The chart is not meant to be an inclusive summary of all of the elements of the final regulations on the Title X family planning program—only those provisions that have a direct counterpart in the Global Gag Rule, referred to by Trump-Pence administration as the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA) policy.
