U.S. opposes abortion language at UN

United States Mission Geneva
The United States rejected a United Nations Human Rights Council resolution today because it included the sanctioning of abortion. The decision was praised by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life Global Outreach (MCCL GO), an international non-governmental organization working to secure human rights for all human beings.

Today’s statement marks the first time since the inception of MCCL GO that the U.S. delegation to the UN Human Rights Council has spoken against a resolution endorsing abortion rights.

“MCCL is encouraged by the Trump administration’s support of the right to life of unborn children,” says Scott Fischbach, Executive Director of MCCL GO. “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.”
