Goodbye to the global (HIV) gag order? | TPMCafe

May 20, 2006

Did anyone else read the Wash. Post’s article yesterday noting that two separate federal district courts are slapping down the global gag rule as an infringement on the first amendment? This is big news. The global gag rule says that any organization receiving USAID funds to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS must explicitly and officially decry prostitution, sex trafficking, and so on.

As E.J. Graff writes, later in the article, this will definitely be appealed, so we’ll have to wait, but its about time, that somebody stood up and said this is wrong!
