Editorials and Opinions

Late last week, I wrote about two key significant issues that took place in the United States. One of the issues was pro-life rallies commemorating the landmark Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade that took place in the capitals of several major cities and in Washington D.C. Another issue was the reversal of the so called "global gag rule" by President Barack Obama. The ruling lifted the ban on funding for international agencies that provide abortions as options to their clients.

In conversations over the weekend, I believed it would be best to engage both parties involved in the issue. Hence, I contacted The Georgia Right to Life, and The Planned Parenthood Federation chapter in Atlanta. I offered to give them a platform and they obliged. Over the next few days, I will post opinion pieces from both of the organizations as they respond to the global gag rule and what implications it has for their organizations going forward.
