This week, Congressional Republicans blasted Joe Biden’s secretary of state Anthony Blinken for wanting to promote killing babies in the womb through abortion globally.
Life News reports:
In a letter, 25 pro-life members of the Republican Study Committee asked the Biden administration leader to justify his claim that abortion is a “human right,” Breitbart reports.
“What international covenant or treaty that is binding on the United States and has been ratified by the Senate establishes unfettered access to abortion and/or the killing of the unborn as a universal human right?” they wrote.
They referred to comments that Blinken made in April declaring that “reproductive rights are human rights even though the United States is not a signatory of any international treaty enshrining abortion access as a human right,” according to the report.
In April, Blinken said his department will add language promoting “reproductive rights,” including abortion on demand, to its Country Reports on Human Rights Practices.
“Your culture-war diplomacy stands in marked contrast to your predecessor Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who made the protection of human rights, especially the equal dignity of all people, a top priority, especially through the creation of the non-partisan Commission on Unalienable Rights, which you have denounced,” the lawmakers said.
