Trump Admin Guts U.N. Resolution to End Rape as Weapon of War



The Trump administration is under fire after the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution to end rape as a weapon of war on Tuesday that excluded any mention of sexual and reproductive health. The resolution was gutted after the U.S. threatened to veto the measure altogether unless language referencing reproductive health was taken out due to the Trump administration’s belief that the language was code for abortion. The watered-down measure also weakened references to the International Criminal Court, making it harder for women and girls to seek justice. We speak with Jessica Neuwirth, director of the Human Rights Program at Roosevelt House at Hunter College and the director of the Sisterhood Is Global Institute. She sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo protesting the U.S. stance on the Security Council resolution. We also speak with Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen.

    Without even getting into details:
    I am 99% certain that this if half truth.
    I am 99% certain that something else has prevented US delegation from supporting "End Rape as Weapon of War"
    I am 99% certain that full body of resolution was a poison pill that couldn't be accepted in its entirety.

    Good on the Trump administration for insisting that any clause regarding abortion be removed from the resolution.

    Shame on the ideologically posessed journalists for lying in their title, by claiming that the Trump administration opposed the resolution as a whole rather than a clause within it.

    Finally, warmongers who rape people aren't going to stop their evil just because a UN resolution says so.

    Not to mention it is his friends doing most of the raping.
    Soviets were notorious for using rape as weapon of intimidation, and their current KGB president isn't any different.

    "True story though" - I'd like to hear details of this true story or at least "your true" story.
