Language referring to abortion was removed from a United Nations resolution on the care of sexual abuse survivors in wartime, after the Trump administration threatened to veto the measure.

U.S. officials said they oppose the UN Security Council resolution on the grounds of a phrase that implied support for abortion, according to the BBC. They threatened to veto the resolution if the abortion language was not dropped.

The phrase that was opposed by the U.S., and by Russia and China, was: “Recognizing the importance of providing timely assistance to survivors of sexual violence, urges United Nations entities and donors to provide non-discriminatory and comprehensive health services, in line with Resolution 2106,” the BBC reported.

The phrase was dropped, and the resolution passed 13-0 without any references to sexual or reproductive health services, with Russia and China abstaining.

  1. One day Valiant President Donald Trump will be recognized as the great champion of Western Civilization. He is a Godsend.

    • Gratias, you have low standards!
      Can you think of any President who was more corrupt? Who had a Cabinet that was more corrupt? That had in-house advisors that were more corrupt?
      Can you think of any president who was less Christian in beliefs and behavior?
      Can you think of any president who was more amoral that our current POTUS?
      If he is a godsend, it is because God is mad at us and is trying to punish us.

        Yea.. Lyndon Johnson comes to mind there Bob.

        I could probably identify Bill Clinton pretty easily as one who is far more reprehensible than the current POTUS.

        but if you want to match insult for insult.. I encourage you to show me yours, and I’ll show you mine.

        I promise you.. Nobody comes close to LBJ for all out piggishness.
        Not even considering the fact that John F. Kennedy shared his sex partners with his brother… YEA, let that sink in… A man who pretended to be religious and devoutly Catholic.. shared his adulterous sex partners with his biological brother.. (would you share your sex partners with your biological brother?)

        The “EWWWWWWW” factor of that one fact is enough to give old JFK the honorable mention…

        Sorry, “Bob One,” but Obama will go down as the very worst American president. President “Corpsman”: 1) abhorred the US military (and cut it deeply); 2) honored the right to murder babies through abortion, and should to advance public funding for its purpose; 3) embraced homosexual sexual relationships and marriage, an affront to God; 4) used his Bully-Pulpit at every turn to foster black animosity towards America and towards whites; and 5) despised our free enterprise system, falsely arguing that “you didn’t build that,” trying to use the government to lay the foundations of socialism that we see today. He was a ruined President.
