Trump’s Move on Abortion

Trump, surrounded by a group of men, reinstated a law which banned the use of federal money to fund international groups which perform abortions. The controversial image of President Trump and five men making decisions regarding the bodies of women, angered feminists around the world. While Trump was pro-choice in 1999, he quickly adopted an anti abortionist mindset and reported that women who have abortions after the practice is forbidden should receive “some form of punishment.”

Boston Women’s March

The Boston Women’s March rallied over 135,000 distressed protestors. The event organizers originally estimated a turnout of 25,000, however, their calculations were quickly proved incorrect – by the 17th of January, 60,000 had registered for the march. Unsurprisingly, Trump tweeted, “I don’t always agree” in response to the protests, however recognized “the rights of people to express their views.   Hypocritically, Trump proceeded to ban EPA employees from from publishing press releases and more generally communicating with the public.
