President Joe Biden is set to issue a memorandum today reversing the so-called global gag rule — a federal ban on funding for foreign nonprofits that provide reproductive counseling or referrals for abortions. Biden’s order also reverses a Trump-era rule barring abortion referrals by healthcare providers in the federally funded Title X family planning program. Biden is also set to order the expansion of reproductive healthcare through the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid. The order also expands a special enrollment period for people to purchase health insurance from the federally run marketplace.
