What the #Helms amendment does:⁣
❌ creates significant barriers to safe and legal health care globally⁣
❌ stigmatizes abortion⁣
❌ undermines our ability to advance health, human rights, and gender equality ⁣

50 years is too long, it’s time to end this US policy.... #RepealHelms

Overturning #RoeVsWade harms people across the US & emboldens anti-rights actors around the 🌏. The US must mitigate the harm of this decision & end foreign policies that restrict access to essential #ReproHealth services, including abortion. #RepealHelms. https://hubs.li/Q01HH0NC0

Annually, there are more than 35 million unsafe abortions worldwide that lead to millions of injuries & tens of thousands of preventable maternal deaths. 👉 Bottom line: The #Helms Amendment puts lives in danger. #RepealHelms https://hubs.li/Q01HGJH50
