In the previous two cycles of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), the United States of America (U.S.) received recommendations that it change its laws and policies regarding funding for foreign assistance in order to fund abortions in other countries. Such recommendations are not only inconsistent with U.S. law and policy, but also reflect a distorted understanding of both international human rights law and international humanitarian law, also known as the laws of war.
