U.S. PRO-LIFE STANCE BECOMES OFFICIAL WITH UN HEALTH CAMPAIGN

Thank you Father that this change is happening--we pray it would be the first of many programs that export the value of life to other nations!

[It’s official.  The U.S. is a pro-life nation, according to a joint letter from U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar.  And this Administration is taking a stand for life at the UN global health summit. No longer will the U.S. be the biggest exporter of abortion to other countries!]

The U.S. Government has reached out to foreign capitals to request support for U.S. pro-life efforts at the United Nations. Such a high-level pro-life effort by a U.S. administration is unprecedented. [This is a huge praise–join us in thanking God for this recent development!]

A joint letter signed by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary Alex Azar of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was sent last month to ask governments to support U.S. pro-life efforts at the United Nations in the lead up to a global health summit this September.

LET THE ADMINISTRATION KNOW YOU SUPPORT THIS EFFORT!

CLICK TO SEND SECRETARY AZAR YOUR THANKS.

UN delegates have been looking for such a letter for more than a year because it makes official the U.S. pro-life stance and will help them in standing up to abortion forces in the UN bureaucracy and the European governments.

The letter warns against “aggressive efforts to reinterpret international instruments to create a new international right to abortion and to promote international policies that weaken the family.”

Pompeo and Azar said these efforts were “disturbing” and that they “take the focus off real health issues and import policy debates that should be handled at the national, sub-national, or community level.”

Their letter also referred to the terms “sexual and reproductive health” and “comprehensive sexuality education” as “ambiguous terms and expressions that cause confusion and have become associated with anti-family and pro-abortion policies.”

The European Union rejected the final draft of a UN agreement on global health earlier this month because it does not allow the UN to promote abortion as an international right.

The final draft agreement in question is for the upcoming global summit on “universal health coverage” of the General Assembly on September 23. The European Union could not accept a statement in the agreement that “sexual and reproductive health” policies must be in line with past UN agreements “as adopted by the General Assembly.”

Past UN agreements exclude abortion as an international right or as a method of family planning and prevent the UN system from promoting abortion.

The Thai and Georgian facilitators of the negotiations added the language about past agreements “as adopted by the General Assembly” to placate insistent requests from the U.S. delegation since this Spring.

The modest compromise seeks to limit the ambiguity of the term “sexual and reproductive health,” which is often used to promote abortion as a right or as part of global health policy by UN officials.

The European Union’s rejection of this proposal throws a wrench in the preparations for the upcoming summit, which many countries see as a priority, casting the shadow of the possibility of a summit without an agreement.

Universal health coverage is an urgent priority for many poor countries who rely on international aid to run their health programs, as the Friday Fax reported earlier this year.

The Thai and Georgian facilitators told delegations that they will be communicating with countries individually to try and resolve the disagreement about the final draft and will convene more formal negotiations early in September if needed.

Given the positions staked out by the EU and U.S. governments, it is unlikely that an agreement can be reached. The U.S. government does not want any ambiguity on the topic of abortion, whereas the EU is adamant that the terminology on “sexual and reproductive health” must remain open-ended and ambiguous.

The only possibility of a change in EU position is for EU member countries force the EU delegation to back off its aggressive pro-abortion stance.

  1. Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for giving us a president who is pro-life. Thank you that Planned Parenthood lost $60 million in federal
    funding. Please Beloved Father make a way so Planned Parenthood stops receiving $500 million from state and federal agencies. I ask you for Your protection of the unborn babies. Please cover them with your feathers; and under your wings they shall take refuge, in His name I prayed.

  2. Lord please help people throughout the world to respect life. May abortion slow down dramatically. May parents stay together and build strong families. May these families come to know You Lord Creator of all people. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

  3. And who got that girl pregnant? He is the one at fault, not the child or the baby. The youngest child to have a child was 5 yrs old, delivered by cesarean section. She a d the child lived and grew up together.

  4. Thank you and may God bless President Trump, Secretary, Mike Pompeo, Secretary, Azar and the wonderful Trump Administration as well for supporting the pro-life cause as you have been so faithful to do. I am overwhelmed with gratitude to God and for you, for your hard efforts to bring this about. Thank you!

  5. Thank GOD we are finally headed in the right direction. Also, it is time that we get out of the UN. It is not working for peace as intended. It is clearly working for satan.

  6. Question? Why won’t evangelicals Christians adopt a more holistic definition of “pro-life?” To include not only unborn babies who are killed, but also innocent victims of gun violence,people who die from a lack of adequate healthcare, etc. If we as move away from the hot button political issue of “abortion”, and start really addressing the major issues that threaten the lives of people in America, THAT WOULD REALLY BE SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE IN JESUS NAME!

    1. And the ten year old in India who was denied an abortion? You have no logical way out or answer for this one. It’s child vs fetus. If the pregnancy kills the ten year old, who wins?

      If you put the fetus above the child’s life, then you are a forced birther, and it’s beyond hypocritical.

  7. Heavenly Father,

    I thank you that respect for life is being viewed as a right for all people equally. I thank you that my Nation, the USA, is stepping up as a world leader in this battle for life.

    As You, our GOD, are the creator of all life, I ask for the wisdom and strength our Nation’s leaders need to win this battle.

    In Jesus mighty name I pray.

    Amen!
