Dear President Obama,

Thank you for overturning the global gag rule. Removing this obstacle to complete reproductive health care is an important first step toward protecting women's health around the world. By overturning the global gag rule so quickly after entering office, you've shown that women's health will be a priority for your administration, and signaled to governments and policy makers around the world that women's health will not be sacrificed to ideology.

There is so much work to be done to provide comprehensive reproductive health care to women in need, both here in the United States and around the world. I have no doubt you will continue to show the good judgment and compassion you demonstrated by overturning the global gag rule.
