There is “No International Right to Abortion”

There is “No International Right to Abortion”

Monday, The Trump Administration told UN member nations that there is no “international right” to abortion, and called on other countries to fight efforts promoting abortions, drawing criticism from reproductive rights groups and other world nations. 

“We do not support references to ambiguous terms and expressions such as ‘sexual and reproductive health and rights’ in UN documents, because they can undermine the critical role of the family and promote practices like abortion in circumstances that do not enjoy international consensus and which can be misinterpreted by UN agencies,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said during a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.

The United States is one of 19 countries, including Brazil, Poland, and Iraq to agree on the statement. 

There is no international right to an abortion, and these terms should not be used to promote pro-abortion policies and measures,” Azar also said. “Further, we only support sex education that appreciates the protective role of the family in this education.”

Conservative groups widely praised the statement.
