What a difference an administration makes.
Went pro abortion President Barack Obama was in office, the official position of the United States at the United Nations was promoting abortion-on-demand without any limits as a “human right.” Now that President Donald Trump is president officials at the United Nations are telling countries around the world that the United States is a pro-life country and that the UN should not be promoting abortion-on-demand across the globe.
Naturally the position defending the right to life of unborn children isn’t going over well with the pro-abortion bureaucrats at the UN. Some of them are absolutely beside theirselves that the United States would dare stand up for women and children and protect them from the horrors of abortion.
Here’s more on one Trump official who made the United States pro-life position crystal clear:
An official appointed by President Donald Trump said during a closed-door United Nations meeting that the “US is a pro-life country”, despite the fact both the law and public opinion support a woman’s right to access legal and safe abortion.
Bethany Kozma, a senior adviser in the office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment for US Agency for International Development (USAID), made the statement while countries negotiated the final document of the ongoing, annual women’s rights conference.
Two diplomats at the UN, who asked not to be named, and charities serving as UN observers, were able to confirm the comment to The Independent and Ms Kozma’s continued presence during negotiations the next day.
As part of the negotiations on the roughly 70-page outcome document, issued every year at the end of the conference, Ms Kozma and the US delegation also called for deleting any mention of the phrase “modern contraceptives” and replacing it with the phrase “family planning” in order to push policies like abstinence-only sexual education.
Koma is right and the liberal British newspaper is wrong, as a majority of Americans hold pro-life views opposing all or most abortions even though the Supreme Court created a fictitious right to abortion in Roe v. Wade.
The Vatican has joined the US at the UN in speaking out against abortions.
Aborting a child with a prenatal diagnosis of Down’s syndrome is a gross violation of human rights and anti-discriminatory commitments, and can be considered genocide, according to speakers at a 20th March panel at the United Nations.

“Here at the United Nations there is much sincere talk and normally passionate action to fight against unjust discrimination,” said Archbishop Bernardito Auza, Vatican nuncio to the United Nations. “But as firm as these commitments are in principle, many delegations, UN agencies and active members of civil society tolerate gross violations of these commitments in practice.”
For example, groups that claim to advance the rights and equality of vulnerable women and girls are notably silent when pre-genetic screening followed by sex-selection abortion ends the lives of those they claim to defend, Archbishop Auza said.
“Such tacit co-operation in this lethal form of discrimination against girls is, at least, inconsistent,” and the inconsistency is even more pronounced in what is happening with those prenatally diagnosed with Down’s syndrome, he said.
