Planned Parenthood is trying to stop President Donald Trump from appointing another pro-life leader to his administration.
This week, the abortion chain sent a letter to the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee outlining its opposition to Andrew Bremberg as an ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, PassBlue reports. It urged the Senate to vote against his confirmation because he is pro-life.
Bremberg currently serves as the chief of the White House Domestic Policy Council. In the past several years, he has been a key advocate for pro-life policies in the Trump administration.
In the letter, Planned Parenthood claimed Bremberg’s pro-life position is “extreme” because he – like most Americans – does not support abortion on demand.
“The person occupying this role will be responsible for representing the U.S. in efforts to address some of the world’s biggest challenges, including health, human rights, and humanitarian crises and the resulting refugee and migration trends,” the letter reads.
Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S., slammed Bremberg for working to defund it of taxpayer dollars. It also criticized him for saying that human rights do not include access to abortion.
“Human rights are universal,” the letter states. “All people deserve to live healthy lives and have their human rights respected, protected, and fulfilled – no matter who they are or where they live.”

Ironically, Planned Parenthood does not advocate for this position at all. If a baby lives in the womb, if the unborn baby is a girl when her parents want a boy, if he/she merely is an inconvenience, Planned Parenthood supports the destruction of their lives.
Planned Parenthood’s letter attacked Bremberg for believing all human beings, not just those who are born, deserve a right to life. The abortion chain claimed he would “actively work against the interests of individuals and communities worldwide,” if the Senate confirms his nomination.
Based on his record, “he will not only obstruct, but actively work against the interests of individuals and communities worldwide who face the greatest barriers to sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice,” the letter continues.
It also noted that the United Nations ambassador is “a position of critical importance.”
Joining Planned Parenthood in the letter were 36 other pro-abortion organizations, including the National Organization for Women, Advocates for Youth, Ipas, Marie Stopes International, the National Abortion Federation and the YWCA.
Bremberg has a strong pro-life record.
The Guardian reports he encouraged Trump to expand the Mexico City policy, which prohibits foreign aid from funding groups that provide and promote abortions overseas. The policy defunded Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes, two major abortion chains, of hundreds of millions of American tax dollars. The International Planned Parenthood Federation alone estimated a $100 million loss from its budget.
Bremberg also helped bring other pro-life leaders into the Trump administration as co-chair of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services transition team, according to the report.
And in June, he refused to back down on his defense of the unborn when a top Senate Democrat grilled him during a Foreign Relations Committee meeting.
If confirmed, Bremberg said he will vote against any UN resolution that promotes the killing of unborn babies in abortions, according to the Guardian.
The UN often advocates for abortion on demand, but the Trump administration has been working against its radical pro-abortion agenda.
In 2017, the Trump administration stopped funding a United Nations agency linked to forced and coerced abortions. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) “partners on family planning activities with the Chinese government agency responsible for these coercive policies,” the administration said in defense of its decision. China’s oppressive one child policy, recently changed to a two-child limit, has led to forced and coerced abortions up through nine months of pregnancy, as well as forced and coerced sterilizations.
