Canada will spend $650 million over the next three years to help fund sex education and reproductive health initiatives around the world, including money earmarked to fill the gap for abortion-related services left by President Donald Trump.

“Like men, women should be able to choose when they want to start a family, how big their family should be, and who they want to start that family with,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at an announcement on Wednesday to mark International Women’s Day in Ottawa.
