This week, in one of his significant announcements, President Trump reinstated the Global Gag rule: prohibiting international groups that accept US health funding from using any of their money to provide or even talk to women about abortion.  The president released this photo of himself signing the documentary order, surrounded by seven men that has been widely criticised by the media and on social media.  


 In response, a young 20 year old woman, part of a French group called 52 has created a meme that has gone truly viral to her great surprise.  Molly-Mae tweeted a picture mocking President Trumps’ abortion bill signing calling for a male ejaculation ban, and showed a doctored picture mocking Trump’s announcement of what it would be like if Hilary Clinton signed a contrasting type of bill, surrounded by a pool of women. 

 

The meme has achieved more than 34,000 shares at the time of writing, attracted thousands of comments and is really being talked about.  What do you think? 
 

The reinstated abortion rule imposes an obligation on foreign organisations that receive US money to refrain from talking to women about abortion. President Trump’s decision to reinstate the rule comes one day after the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the US Supreme Court decision that legalised abortion. 

Conservatives welcomed the move, while some Democrats and many public health experts have denounced it, with loud and challenging feedback.  

“It’s a pure political giveaway at the expense of some of the world’s most vulnerable women,” said Aram Schvey, senior policy counsel and manager of special projects at the Center for Reproductive Rights to Buzzfeed.

Share your thoughts on the two photos.  

  1. It should be left to the woman to decide, not some idiot sitting in the White House. Some of these woman are raped repeatedly, and end up with unwanted pregnancies, some have too many children and are unable to feed them all properly, but NO it is alright for Trump sitting in his ivory tower to ban abortion. Let’s bring a law in banning ejaculation that would really stuff him up.

    That’s even worse than putting Tony Abbott in charge of women’s affairs here in Australia. This digusting individual is running American like a corporation. He is making laws without reference to the Congress (Parliament) and just signing everything away that is not “profit-making.” Health both women’s reproductive and Obamacare, veterans and disability services, environment, climate change, wildlife – everything that is not profitable is going. The idiots who voted The Orange One (good taste and census prohibits me calling him what I really want) in are in huge numbers, the poor of America’s South. Very shortly they are going to be feeling the pinch in what miserable lives they already have. What are they going to do then? Blame Trump? No, I’ll bet they’ll be blaming Obama and if they can – Hilary Clinton. Now we have the UK Prime Minister grovelling around begging for his recognition! Malcolm Turnbulll was the first one to crawl to this cretin and now he is sending a minion to follow Theresa May. Australia hosts a huge American strategic base – a gigantic ace in the hand if ever there was one. Don’t kid ourselves that America would come to our aid if anything happened here – TOO has already announced that old alliances may not be adhered to.

      What a great response. This nothing more than religion mixed in with politics. Abbott and Trump both do it. It’s the same with Trump and Abbotts immigration policy. Why do we still have genuine refugees in detention? Australia is morally bankrupt, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. New Zealand offered to take the refugees, and we refused the offer!!! Our press simply ignores the issue. Australia has ceased to be the land of “a fair go”.

    I don’t agree with banning abortion, BUT I don’t think the American tax payer should be funding it.

    I don’t disagree with any of the comments, especially the ones about choice but… No1 – it’s money that belongs to the people of the USA (and the amount I’ve heard is $US600million) and No 2 – a lot of those countries have money themselves but prefer to spend it on weaponry and warfare. So if in fact that funding didn’t occur, and the UN were to do its job properly and forced those places to look after their own people, that sort of funding required, and the results of warfare, eg rape etc, would decrease. What this is really all about is the UN once again trying to play both ends against each other at the expense of the middle class.

    9 “This, then, is how you should pray:

    “‘Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    10 your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    11 Give us today our daily bread.
    12 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
    but deliver us from the evil one.[b]

    All these comments about the pro choice people. What about the pro life march. Nothing reported. Everyone has a right to express their opinions but seems on this site and on mainstream media they seem to continually promote anti-Trump bias. As one who was not blessed to have children I feel that all lives are precious. How many great things may have been accomplished by the children who were aborted? How many loving families would have loved to adopt a child? According to US law until a child is actually born it has no human rights. How can a woman who say, at 24 weeks, have a premature baby and the medical team does all it can to help the baby survive yet someone who waits until 24 weeks and then decides to have an abortion it’s acceptable because the law, made by those same men, decides that it’s not a child because it hasn’t been born yet and subject to any human right and can be terminated. On one hand women don’t want these men to interfere with their reproductive rights but on the other their quite ok with letting them decide at what stage a foetus can be considered a “human being” and aloud to live or die. I don’t understand the logic of this. I find it very sad.

      There are many reasons why women have abortions and none of them have anything to do with you being unable to reproduce. If you don’t agree with abortions then don’t have one. Simple.

      • Joy Rhodes  

        Totally agree with you, Sonia. And where is the pro-life movement on war for God’s Sake??? How about all those lives being needlessly lost? Talk about prejudiced not to mention bigotted!

    Sonia I don’t think I have heard a simpler or better argument. I like your thought process!
