Later last week, the Trump administration released an assessment on the impact of cutting off funding to international organizations that promote abortion.

Similar policies implemented by previous Presidents have only applied to family planning groups, but this current version would cut off funding to any international health organization that promotes abortion, which taps into more than $7 billion in grants per year, as reported by NPR.
