Lugar (R-IN) motion to table ("kill") the Boxer (D-CA) amendment overturning the global gag
rule. The Boxer amendment would prohibit the President from refusing to fund foreign NGOs
solely because they provide medical services, including counseling and referral, that are legal in their countries and are legal in the United States and from imposing free speech restrictions on foreign NGOs not imposed on U.S. organizations receiving assistance under the foreign aid
program. (When the Lugar motion to table was defeated, the Boxer amendment was approved by unanimous consent.)
A "nay" vote was a vote in favor of U.S. population assistance.
