Lianne Ploumen launches fund on family planning in response to Trumps funding cut

The NL Times reports:

Dutch Minister Lianne Ploumen: “We want women to keep as much access to their rights as possible”, Ploumen said on Tuesday. “Banning abortion does not lead to fewer abortions. It leads to more irresponsible practices in back rooms and to more mothers dying.”

She’s launching an international fund to make up for the about $600 million gap created by Trump’s decision to scrap funding to organizations that help with family planning and offer safe abortions in developing countries (Nope, that’s not the USA. Yet.)
