Trump Administration Blocks U.N. Abortion Push

For the second year in a row, the U.S. kept abortion-related language out of a UN Security Council resolution on women in crisis and conflict.

It is a victory for pro-Lifers and the Trump administration, which has been pushing to eliminate the misleading phrase "sexual and reproductive health" from UN documents. It is a blow to European liberals who insist that abortion be funded as humanitarian aid.

U.S. Permanent Representative to the UN Kelly Craft said after the vote: "We cannot accept references to 'sexual and reproductive health,' nor any references to 'safe termination of pregnancy' or language that would promote abortion or suggest a right to abortion."

This is the second time in recent months that the Europeans were defeated in attempts to sneak abortion in the Women Peace and Security agenda. They were also stopped in April when the U.S. threatened to veto the last iteration of the resolution.

The US position has changed abortion politics at the UN. In turn, this will help save the lives of untold numbers of innocent children who would otherwise have been slaughtered by the ‘new Herod’ elite as part of the plan to cull the ‘human herd’.
