U.S. Ambassador Andrew Bremberg Criticizes UN Abortion Advocacy

After the UN Working Group on Discrimination Against Women and Girls criticized U.S. States which did not label abortion as an "essential service" during the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. Ambassador to Geneva Andrew Bremberg responded with a scathing letter.

The letter, labeled as the official U.S. response to the UN Working Group on Discrimination Against Women and Girls, called the group's remarks, “a perversion of the human rights system and the founding principles of the United Nations.”

The letter accuses the United Nations of ignoring China's policies of forced abortion, forced sterilization, and forced birth control.

“These are actual human rights abuses, implicating millions of women and girls and their health, on an industrial scale, targeting a vulnerable ethnic and religious minority,” the letter reads.

The letter further calls the UN group “self-appointed guardians” who undermine the human rights of others by treating their policy preferences as if they were rights.

“If you truly are concerned about the integrity of the United Nations human rights system,” the letter concludes, “we urge you to reconsider the approach that has led you and your colleagues to this sad point, so far from the noble purpose for which this institution was founded 75 years ago.”
