Dear Friend,

A official appointed by Trump said during a closed-door meeting at the UN that the United States is a "pro-life country." 

Legally, it's not.

The official also tried to negotiate the removal of any references to "sexual and reproductive health" in a UN document. Every day, the Trump Administration shows its willingness to take even more radical anti-choice positions than past Republican administrations. 

GJC continues to raise our voice in opposition and fight back against these misguided and dangerous policies.
