World Health Organization sneaks pro-abortion language into resolutions
The United States pushed back on attempts to insert abortion into the World Health Organization's resolution on universal health coverage at the agency's just concluded executive board meeting.
The executive board adopted the resolution on February 1st. The issue has become a priority for UN agencies.
The resolution mentioned existing international commitments to provide "universal access to sexual and reproductive health care services" and "integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programs." This sparked intense closed-door debate. After its adoption, the United States dissociated itself from "reproductive health terminology" which "has evolved to include abortion." The U.S. delegate's statement explained that such language has been used to pressure countries to change their abortion laws and normalize teenage sexual activity.
