Un-Gag me with a spoon!

Today Obama lifted the gag order on international groups that offer counseling and abortions to women in other countries. According to a Planned Parentood statement, in the pat 8 years, 'Clinics have closed, contraceptive supplies have dwindled, and women were left without basic and critical health care services. As a result, there were more unwanted pregnancies and more unsafe abortions. Today, one woman dies every minute of every day due to pregnancy related causes, including unsafe abortion, and over 200 million women in developing countries who wish to delay or end childbearing lack access to modern contraceptives. Those are the women President Obama stood up for today. '
