“Abortion is legal in the United States, and the US supports both domestic and international programs for women’s health at a very high level. But we do reject the proposition that abortion is a matter of international human rights, and affirms that all lives, both born and unborn, should be protected.” -US Assistant Secretary of State Robert Destro

In a three-hour grilling during the Universal Periodic Review the US sat in the dock while various European countries asserted that abortion is a human right. Though abortion is legal in the United States, the US has never supported the idea that it is a human right.

But we do reject the proposition that abortion is a matter of international human rights, and affirms that all lives, both born and unborn, should be protected.”
