U.S. Takes Giant Pro-Life Step at the U.N

Pro-life U.S. UN Ambassador Nikki Haley
The United States Mission to the United Nations in Geneva confirmed the words of pro-life U.S. UN Ambassador Nikki Haley that “there is a new sheriff in town” in a statement of position that demonstrated beyond any doubt that this “new sheriff” is wearing a shiny pro-life badge, to the dismay of pro-abortion governments and activists.

An explanation of position was read by U.S. First Secretary to the U.N. Jason Mack, following adoption by the Human Rights Council of a resolution by Canada that focused on the elimination of violence against women–A/HRC/35/L.15 : Accelerating efforts to eliminate violence against women: engaging men and boys in preventing and responding to violence against all women and girls.

The statement confirmed U.S. support for “the spirit” of the anti-violence resolution and that the U.S. joined other the members of the Human Rights Council “in condemning all acts of violence against women and girls and in calling for the elimination of all forms of sexual and other forms of gender-based violence, including sex trafficking of women and girls”.

But then, the U.S. took a giant pro-life step and declared “the U.S. ‘must dissociate from the consensus’ specifically on access to safe abortions.”
