Among them are for states to expand their Medicaid programs; full federal funding of USAID HIV programs; ending the anti-choice Hyde, Helms, and Weldon Amendments; and terminating the so-called domestic and global gag rules.

And it is drafted with the expectation that it will be implemented as soon as we have a supportive Congress and Administration.”
“That future is coming,” they write, “and we are ready.”
