On his last full day in office before leaving his position as Secretary of State, Pompeo called out China for promoting genocide, including subjecting women to forced abortions.
“For the past four years, this Administration has exposed the nature of the Chinese Communist Party and called it what it is: a Marxist-Leninist regime that exerts power over the long-suffering Chinese people through brainwashing and brute force. We have paid particular attention to the CCP’s treatment of the Uyghur people, a Muslim minority group that resides largely in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in Western China,” Pompeo wrote in a statement
Pompeo has long called for an end to China’s treatment of the Uighur people and in his statement, he cited the imprisonment, forced labor, torture, and sterilization as ongoing genocidal actions carried out by the Chinese government.
“Our founders built our country on a commitment to essential rights, unalienable rights … that come from these amazing documents, our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution, and our nation’s foreign policy must be grounded in those central understandings,” Pompeo said.
He said his office has been focused on promoting religious freedom, national security and essential human rights, including the right to life.
“Abortion quite simply isn’t a human right. It takes a human life,” he said.
Among their actions, Pompeo said they worked with 20 countries on a joint statement criticizing the United Nations for pushing a pro-abortion agenda, according to the report.

Along with the policy, Pompeo and the Trump Administration created a new enforcement mechanism to ensure that American tax dollars are not being used to pay for abortions with international aid funds.

While serving in the U.S. House, he co-sponsored the Sanctity of Human Life Act which said, “each human life begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, at which time every human has all legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood…”
