The study’s intent is to measure the impact of reproductive health services (RHS) on indicators of health and well- being. The planned analysis was to make use of decreased availability of RHS as an exogenous change as a result of the 2001 reinstatement of the U.S. policy known as the global gag rule. According to NGO statements, collaborative reports by advocacy groups, news articles, and commentary in health journals, the global gag rule slashed funding to NGOs that provide RHS in the developing world. The result, they reported, was significantly reduced access to contraceptives, antenatal care, and other maternity services in poor countries, especially in Africa.
