The Costs of Trump’s Global Gag Rule 8.8.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/ Khalil Senosi, File Dr. Aron Sikuku, right, explains family planning pills to Beatrice Ravonga in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. President Donald Trump's move to dramatically expand cuts in U.S. funding to foreign organizations providing abortion services has left impoverished women around the world without access to treatment for HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria, health groups say. “When are you coming back? Why have you left? Why aren’t you coming to our community?” These are the questions thatwomen and girls in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and other developing countries ask in desperate phone calls to their health-care providers after a local health clinic shuts down. The women are at a loss to understand why these clinics, often the only facility accessible to them in small towns and remote rural villages, have suddenly stopped providing much needed services.

How SNAP and Medicaid Work Requirements Will Hurt Workers 2.8.2018 American Prospect
trickle-downers.jpg On any given day, you’re likely to interact with a lot of people who work in the low-wage labor market. They’re the laborers you pass on the street, the retail clerks in a shop you frequent, the cooks or wait staff at a restaurant you like. They might be your family, friends, and coworkers. Maybe you yourself work in one of these occupations—after all, many millions of Americans do. While conservatives might paint adults who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, commonly called food stamps) benefits and Medicaid as idle people who don’t want to work, the data don’t validate that assumption. Adults who rely on SNAP and Medicaid for help paying for their groceries and health care are often those same low-wage workers. But their work is largely volatile and unstable, and it comes without such key work supports as paid sick and family leave and affordable child care. That’s why the recent policy push to institute harsh work requirements in both SNAP and Medicaid is ...
