What Can Pro-Lifers Expect From The UN’s New Development Goals?

Despite the uphill battle for pro-life advocates, Koren remains undeterred.

“The best outcome the pro-life community can hope for during the negotiations ahead is a streamlined text hearkening back to the agreed language of the Rio conference, which did not mention abortion in any way,” Koren explains. “As serious as this situation is, however, it will in no way create an international right to abortion. International law will still be on the side of life, even if the drafted abortion language is not removed.”

The United Nations will meet once monthly until mid-summer for further negotiations. These meetings will determine whether the draft proposal will be accepted, modified, or whether an entirely new proposal will be introduced. Whatever happens, international pro-life advocates are ready.
