SUGGESTED SCRIPT

My name is [your name] and I am a voter from [your residential location]. I’m calling to urge Senator [or Representative] XX to co-sponsor the Global Heath, Rights and Empowerment (HER) Act (H.R. 556 and S.142) and end the deadly Global Gag Rule. The Global Gag rule is a US policy that puts the lives of millions of women and girls at risk around the world. What’s more, it doesn’t reduce abortion, which is it’s purported purpose. I support US funding that supports the rights and health of women and girls. Please oppose the Global Gag Rule and co-sponsor the Global HER Act.
