What is The Geneva Consensus Declaration and Why Did The US Sign it?
33 nations, including the United States, signed a declaration last week saying “there is no international right to abortion” and brought forth the foundational importance of the family unit to society.
The document, named the “Geneva Consensus Declaration On Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family” is co-sponsored by the U.S., Brazil, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, and Uganda, did the signing via virtual event.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a statement glorifying the document as an effort to achieve four main pillars:
1. Better health for women
2. The preservation of human life
3. Strengthening of family as foundational unit of society
4. Protecting every nation’s national sovereignty in global politics

Republicans in the U.S. took extreme liking to the fact that the document took a stance that seems opposite to the increasingly liberal international community’s stance on the right to life and the importance of the family unit.
The declaration stated a reaffirmation of “the inherent ‘dignity and worth of the human person,’ that ‘every human being has the inherent right to life,’ and the commitment ‘to enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth and provide couples with the best chance of having a healthy infant.”
This document is a huge win for the pro life community and sets forth an international precedent that we must stop the mass genocide of babies. .. Have an opinion? Drop your comments below.
