Nations Should Fight For An International Right to Life Law By Lianne Laurence for Life Site News
GNN Note – It gives me a lot more hope that someone is thinking about issue of this magnitude. The fact of the matter is, the U.S. would not have to import one person if Roe v Wade never existed. Our nation would look, and function, a lot different than what we see today. Then again, it’s part of what needed to happen in order to bring us to this point.
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar reiterated in a private meeting with foreign health leaders Thursday that there is an “international right to life” but “no international right to abortion.”
However, that won’t stop relentless international lobbying to secure this illusory right, Azar warned representatives of 35 “like-minded” countries who met at Washington’s historic Blair House to discuss their continuing efforts as a “pro-life, pro-family, pro-sovereignty coalition” on the global stage.
“I am sure you are all familiar with the constant drumbeat in the halls of the United Nations and the WHO (World Health Organization) to normalize the terms ‘sexual and reproductive health’ and ‘reproductive rights,’” said Azar, according to a transcript of his remarks on the HHS site.
“What reproductive rights are they talking about? In this context, it is increasingly becoming clear that some U.N. agencies and countries want this to mean unfettered access to abortion, and we cannot let this threat go unanswered,” he said.
“I stated this fact at the United Nations this past September, and I’ll repeat it here: There is no international human right to abortion. On the other hand, there is an international human right to life.”
President Donald Trump “has been clear, at the U.N. and on the world stage: Health care exists to improve health and preserve human life — the universal goal we all share,” he added.
