Feb 9, 2017 – Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands & Sweden Move Against Donald Trump Anti Abortion Policy

4 European nations are set to host an int’l meeting aimed at countering US President Donald Trump’s order that blocks U.S. funding for charities that provide abortion-related services.

Swedish minister for international development cooperation Isabella Lovin said Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden will lead the March 2.

“We shall mobilise political and financial support and show there is a counter force to the troubling trend we see in the United States and other parts of the world,’’ she said.

About 50 countries, as well as representatives of groups that offer information and counselling on abortion and reproductive health, were invited to the conference with the theme “She Decides.’’

One of the goals is to raise funds for organisations affected by a financial shortfall in the wake of the U.S. decision.

The Dutch government has already pledged 10.6 million dollars.

Trump’s executive order bars international non-governmental organisations from receiving U.S. aid if they provide abortion services, including counselling and referrals to abortion providers.

Unsafe abortions are a major cause of maternal mortality and public health advocates around the world have warned that the reversal will have grave consequences.

The order which was first announced by president Ronald Reagan in 1984 has been reversed by successive administrations.

    MY DEAR TRUMP to really make America great again you‘d have so many vices created that muslim terrorist called Hussein Obama to contend with.

    But keep on keeping on, fear not, be strong. We the good people and children of promise of His kingdom from the Christian side of Nigeria are fully behind you. The Lord is your strenght. You will overcome and all those satan agents shall be disappointed. So shall it be.

    I take a stroll…

    I am seeing United States Empire will comes to an ends soon from the hands of Donald Trump… Donald Trump needs to read history of how Roman Empire end either Defected from the German…. Unnecessary laws affects the Empire.
    Only people who don’t have reading culture either read history will fully support his unlawful acts of human right….
