Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

Salon’s Rebecca Traister reports that President Obama is about to revoke the Global Gag Rule. This is absolutely great news as it will allow proper AIDS prevention and family planning to take place. Abortion has nearly nothing to do with it as in the worst-affected areas abortion is heavily restricted already, and this will not change that. I’d also like to point out that it is still illegal to fund most overseas abortions using taxpayer money, and that revoking the policy simply changes the scope of funding limitations. It in no way results in taxpayer money funding abortions overseas.
