The United States has rightly refused to support an effort to treat abortion as family planning
The Trump administration has strongly opposed a UN resolution that sanctions abortion. The UN has been consistently attempting to add the right to an abortion to many of its leading resolutions, reports Life News.
“We do not recognize abortion as a method of family planning, nor do we support abortion in our reproductive health assistance,” First Secretary to the UN Secretary Mack said to the Council of America’s position.
He added that the U.S. “strongly supports the spirit of this resolution and joins other members of this Council in condemning all acts of violence against women and girls.”
“The United States has rightly refused to support an effort to treat abortion as family planning,” says Scott Fischbach, Executive Director of MCCL GO. “MCCL GO fully supports the U.S. decision to oppose abortion as a legitimate ‘treatment’ for women.”
“MCCL is encouraged by the Trump administration’s support of the right to life of unborn children,” says Fischbach. “There is no right to abortion under international law. In fact, a foundational document of the UN, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, explicitly protects the right to life.”
The statement by the U.S. is welcomed by all those who respect life from its very beginning and who object to the seemingly endless promotion of abortion by activists at the U.N.
