Facebook Executive Slams Trump “Abortion Policy”


by Micah J. Fleck

Author and Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg recently spoke out about President Trump’s “abortion policy” (what she actually means is the defunding of foreign Planned Parenthoods) and how she feels it negatively impacts women and takes away their “rights.”

According to the report:

Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg broke her silence Thursday, weighing in on President Trump’s reinstatement of a Reagan-era policy banning U.S. foreign aid to health providers overseas who offer abortion counseling or advocate for a woman’s right to have an abortion.

In a Facebook post, Sandberg said the policy could have “terrible consequences for women and families around the world,” cutting them off from other health services. She shared an article from the New York Times and said she supports passage of Global Health, Empowerment and Rights (HER) Act. 

“I started my career working at the World Bank on health care in India. I saw firsthand how clinics funded by foreign aid are often the only source of health care for women. When women are given even the most basic health care information and services, they live longer, healthier lives — and they give birth to children who live longer, healthier lives,” Sandberg wrote. 

“Comprehensive family planning helps prevent unintended pregnancies, deaths and abortions. This week’s executive order reinstating the global gag rule will make that work much harder. It bans health organizations around the world from providing counseling on all family planning options. If they refuse to abide by the ban, they could lose millions in funding from the United States. And this ban is harsher and broader than past orders by past presidents, because it covers every program that falls under global health assistance. That means it’ll hurt more people.”

The Facebook post marked the first time since the presidential election that Sandberg, a champion of women’s issues, has spoken out on the policies of the new administration.
