Publication Subtitle: Insights from Congressional debates on the Mexico City policy
Publication Year: 2014
Publication Author: Suzanne Petroni

This two-page policy brief breaks down how the Mexico City Policy, commonly known as the “Global Gag Rule,” denies U.S. family planning funds to any foreign non-governmental organization that provides, lobbies for or counsels on abortion, even with its own resources and how Congressional voting records attempting to legislate the policy into existence show that support, or lack thereof, for the policy largely depends on political party and gender of the member of Congress.
