The U.S. Mission to the United Nations has rejected an UN agreement on humanitarian assistance for emergencies, including the COVID-19 pandemic, that would have promoted abortion.

In a statement released last night, the U.S. Mission to the UN said, “The United States cannot accept the terms ‘sexual and reproductive health care services’ and ‘sexual and reproductive health’.”

“We emphasize that health care should focus on health promotion and prevention, consistent with national legislation and policies,” The U.S. statement reads.

C-Fam President Austin Ruse, said, “This is a great victory for pro-lifers around the world who are justifiably concerned that COVID funding would be used to promote abortion in humanitarian assistance. We thank the Trump administration for taking this strong stance in favor of true humanitarian assistance and in favor of the unborn child.”
