      In one of his first moves after becoming president, Trump signed an executive order last year that banned U.S. assistance to any non-U.S. organization performing, promoting or providing information on abortion. As a result, health providers around the world — with many of them operating in remote areas where help is direly needed — were cut off from U.S. funding. The executive order also affects the large number of nongovernmental organizations that treat a vast array of illnesses and offer abortions as one of many health services.

      While prior Republican U.S. presidents have similarly stopped overseas family-planning funds for abortions, the current executive order applies to all global health aid funding, which is almost 15 times higher than the budget previously affected.
