By Jenny Eaton Dyer Today, we celebrate International Women’s Day. To achieve parity and inclusivity for millions of women worldwide, the first step is contraception, which are not only lifesaving mechanisms in the developing world, but a key to flourishing. For this International Women’s Day, we, as Christian leaders — pastors and activists, authors and artists — ask you to stand with the 220 million women who say they want life abundantly, with access to contraceptives. The U.S. leads the world in funding for international family planning. (Since the Helms Amendment passed in 1973, none of this funding has supported providing abortions.) But last year, President Trump recommended zeroing out this funding in global health.
