Malawi NGOs to be hit by Trump’s abortion order

By Joseph Dumbula on Mar 17, 2017

Nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) in Malawi that provide and promote abortion after receiving funds from the United States will have to anticipate for aid cut as the Donald Trump administration signed a decree to do so.

Weeks ago, the US leader reinstated a global gag rule that bans U.S.-funded groups around the world from discussing abortion.

The order known as the Mexico City policy, established by Republican President Ronald Reagan in 1984, blocks federal funding for international family planning charities that provide abortions or actively promote the procedure.
