Should Obama have Reversed U.S. Abortion Policy?
In one of his first acts in office, President Obama rescinded the Bush administration's longstanding Mexico City Policy, also known as the Global Gag Rule, which restricted federal funding to international groups that promoted or performed abortions. Obama said that overturning the policy would "restore critical efforts to protect and empower women and promote global economic development." Was Obama right to reverse U.S. abortion policy overseas?
