Melvine Ouyo is a reproductive health nurse at Family Health Options Kenya. She visited Washington, D.C., to discuss how the clinic has lost funding because it would not agree to the terms of President Trump's executive order banning U.S. aid to any health organization in another country that provides, advocates or makes referrals for abortions.
