Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, representing the United States, led a coalition of 32 countries that signed the Geneva Consensus Declaration to ask the United Nations to stop promoting abortion as a “right.”
On Oct. 22 in Washington, Pompeo and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar led the signing of the document, which was co-sponsored by Hungary, Indonesia, Uganda, Egypt, and Brazil, and was initially scheduled to take place at U.N. headquarters.
The powerful declaration rejects the alleged ‘rights’ of women promoted by the World Health Organization, which includes abortion as a method of “family planning” while reaffirming the sovereignty of each country to determine its own decisions without the interference of international organizations.
The statement “that in no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning” and that “any measures or changes related to abortion within the health system can only be determined at the national or local level according to the national legislative process.”
The document, which is of a moral nature for the time being, emphasizes that a woman’s rights lie in her integral care as a human being and as a key part of the family unit, not as an isolated element.
The declaration reaffirms the “inherent dignity and worth of the human person, that every human being has the inherent right to life, and the commitment to enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth and provide couples with the best chance of having a healthy infant.”
It also seeks to affirm, “There is no international right to abortion, nor any international obligation on the part of states to finance or facilitate abortion.”
This is not the first time that the Trump administration has opposed the U.N.’s globalist plans and its intention to implement a new world order, creating international “rights” and “laws” by seeking to systematize all countries under the same regulations.
“For decades, the same tired voices proposed the same failed solutions, pursuing global ambitions at the expense of their own people. But only when you take care of your own citizens, would you find a true basis for cooperation,” President Trump said in his speech to the United Nations this year, “and I am proudly putting America first, just as you should be putting your countries first. That’s okay. That’s what you should be doing.”
The Geneva Consensus Statement also emphasizes the need for each country to make its own decisions while working together with other nations for the good of all.
