WAS Statement on the USA Rejection of UN Resolution of Violence Against Women

The USA has recently rejected a resolution proposed to the UN Human Rights Council that has the stated goal of reducing violence against women because of a provision related to access to safe abortions. The World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) condemns the rejection of this resolution and reaffirms its denouncement of the Global Gag Rule. The lives of many women may be threatened due to the lack of support from the USA delegation to this important statement. We fully stand behind the UN’s continued effort to support and sustain sexual health policies including access to sexual health services including abortion.
