31. Trump reinstated the Global Gag Order on Day One. The Women's March was already planned....

...but we knew in advance. Team Trump TOLD us what they planned to do all along. Hence the Women's March.

As regards the Global Gag Order, it is a political football. I think Reagan started it. Then every time the WH changes parties, it gets yanked (Bill Clinton) or reinstated (Dubya) or yanked again (Obama) and finally reinstated yet again (Trump).

This is indeed done by Executive Order. The reason for this is that neither party has a sufficient majority any any one time to simply pass it as a law. Especially the Dems. So this is quick and easy and makes a statement that the Men in Charge are pro-life or conversely pro-woman.

It is a political football with women's very lives.
