US signs anti-abortion declaration with group of largely authoritarian governments | The Guardian |

The US has today signed an anti-abortion declaration with a group of about 30 largely illiberal or authoritarian governments, after the failure of an effort to expand the conservative coalition.

The "core supporters" of the declaration are Brazil, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia and Uganda, and the 27 other signatories include Belarus (where security forces are currently trying to suppress a women-led protest movement), Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Sudan, South Sudan, Libya.

Secretary Pompeo said in his remarks, "Under President Trump's leadership, the United States has defended the dignity of human life everywhere and always. He's done it like no other President in history. We've also mounted an unprecedented defense of the unborn abroad. ... Today, we're taking the next step, as we sign the Geneva Consensus Declaration. At its very core, the Declaration protects women's health, defends the unborn, and reiterates the vital importance of the family as the foundation of society."

So Trump and his Cabinet are pro-life? 😖
